I was disappointed with what I saw while shopping around for a cup cake tower. They were too small, too expensive, flimsy looking, and all-around unimpressive. So what does that mean? I made my own crappy, flimsy, and unimpressive cupcake tower. And now I will share with the internet comprehensive and specific directions how to […]
the minutia As of today and according to our registry, 57 days remain before our wedding day. Planning is sort of at a standstill as we wait for the RSVPs. If we are within the range of guests we estimated for the caterer we will be sending out more invitations to others we wish to […]
