A great video describing the process, origin, and design of the pretty, pretty royal wedding flowers! I love this modern couple. Besides the fact that Kate chose to have her dress made by one of my two very favorite designers (the AMAZING Sarah Burton who had the near impossible task of carrying on the Alexander McQueen label after his untimely death last year...and who is miraculously performing the task to perfection), they sourced ALL of their flowers from the various royal properties. Nothing was imported. The resulting designs reflected their heritage, kingdom, natural beauty, and commitment to sustainable practices. The video is gorgeous...tons of lily-of-the-valley, white lilac, and euphorbia. I would have given almost anything just to be part of the giant floral team that pulled this off. It would have been fascinating just to be their water girl or floor sweeper and watch the process!

My fancy espresso machine that is one of my most prized possessions is on week four at the repair shop...which means I've been spending a lot of time thinking about coffee. Ok, I always spend a lot of time thinking about coffee, but I just appreciate a steaming pick-me-up more than ever right now, since it's a little harder to get. But I've been thinking this morning, as I'm drinking some Starbucks VIA--which is actually surprisingly good!--how much I love my favorite mug.

The beautiful cakes and sugar flowers are from Perfect Endings in California. You could also order cakes through your baker, and organic pesticide-free flowers from your florist. I hope someday my centerpiece construction for an event means decorating 15 beautiful cakes!
