Sorry for the lack of posts- the holidays just get crazy! Asa and I made these little turkey cookies to go at each placle setting. Royal Icing is great for the smooth, hard finish but it just doesn’t have that buttery taste. So I experimented and used the royal icing technique with a “buttercream” frosting. I simply melted 1/2c. butter and mixed in nearly a bag of pwd sugar, 1tsp vanilla, and then enough milk to pipe. Then thinned it out for flooding. We let them dry out overnight. It worked pretty well, and tasted great – but we have some perfecting to do before I’m 100% sure! I’ll post more if it works out.
I also found these little frame charms at Michaels and put my Grandma’s picture in there.
And we did eat the cake – but not like that. It was just a funfetti cake mix, but I love love them!! Those little letters are from Michaels too.
Here’s the rest of Daniel’s photos. Annike wanted vibrant pinks and oranges to offset the teal of the bridesmaids dresses. (Here’s the inspiration board.) I used zinnias, birds of paradise, stock, lisianthus, free spirit roses, and hypcericum. Birds of Paradise are a wonderful flower! So much character and color.
I made a wand for the flower girl. I’m a fan or real flowers but for little girls, these are fantastic. They can use them at the rehearsal, wave them around, drag them on the ground and they’ll still look great! Just make sure to use full headed flowers without a center (daffodils, lilies) that give them away as fake. Carnations, mums, and peonies work great.
Daniel Foucachon sent over some pictures of Annike and Jonathan’s wedding! I haven’t had a chance to go through all of them yet, but this one caught my eye. So sweet. These flowers were so fun to do – so vibrant! More to come!
