We went with a blue and white color palette for flowers. I ordered the flowers from our hometown florist, Flower Fall, a mixture of white sweet peas, dark blue delphiniums, white peonies, blush roses , white lilac branches and blue hydrangeas and arranged them in an assortment of clear and cobalt blue glass vessels that I bought from Fishs Eddy ,
(after the party I gave little vases to the bride)

For desert, Ducan Hines yellow cake cupcakes with milk chocolate frosting were served at the brides request. I decorated the cupcakes with sugared yellow mimosa's and sugared mint tea leaves brought over from Italy from my neighborhood Pasticcerria Gelateria called, Corregio. Go here to see more info.

I also found this incredible cupcake courier at bed bath and beyond, isn't it genius? I ended up giving it to the bride as an addition for her kitchen. How handy with this be once she has a kids running around and needs to transport those cupcakes to school for classroom birthday parties? for more information on about cupcake courier, go here.
