I feel in love with this cake immediately! Isn’t it amazing!!


Yes it’s a bit cold to wear this now but wouldn’t this make for eye catching gorgeous spring/summer dress.


Of course Purple is one of my all time favorite colors especially when it comes to decorating a wedding or event. There could never be too much purple



I always love black and white together.


How romantic is this photo:)


Teal and Red make for such an awesome combo! These colors would actually look amazing for a unique spin on the traditional red and green Christmas colors.


Isn’t this a great Fall Festive dessert display! Love the ribbon and letters hanging from the branch.
