I can’t believe this weekend is already over. It went far too quickly and I enjoyed myself a little too much. It all started with Saturday morning mimosa’s since I had to finish the bottle of champagne I opened on Thursday night (thank god for airtight corks). Far be it from to let it go to waste.
This is me boozing it up before even showering (it’s totally overrated), and I don’t have a problem since I’m sure it’s past noon somewhere. Besides, champagne is a such a versatile cocktail, it can be sipped pretty much anytime of the day.
Other than indulging in liquid pleasures (all good things in moderation), I did a lot of really fabulous eating this past weekend, and I can’t wait to share some fun recipes with all of you. Sadly, it will be later in the week since I did very little writing the past few days. I was too busy cooking, stuffing my face, and going to an out-of-town wedding.
The wedding went down on Saturday evening on a golf course. The bride and groom couldn’t have asked for a more picturesque day. It was sunny and seventy so not too hot and not too cold (Goldilocks would have loved it). The overall theme of the wedding was a 1920’s flapper vibe, with black and red being the predominant colors. All the women in the bridal party had feathers in their hair. I didn’t get the memo, but look how nicely I fit it with my little head-piece. My psychic powers were strong this weekend, or when you have no hair, fun little headbands are pretty much your only option.
Instead of flowers, the bridal party carried feathers, and they all wore little black dresses with shiny platinum red heels. The mother of the bride rocked the same shoes with a dove-gray dress. It was very becoming, while the bride herself wore white and was breathtaking in her mermaid style dress.
All told, it was simply a beautiful wedding on a picture perfect day with a large group of kind and supportive people (exactly who you want to surround yourself with). Needless to say, I thoroughly enjoyed myself, especially on the dance floor later on in the night; I can shake a tail feather.
Until tomorrow, when I’ll be back to my normal gluttonous self with plenty of food to share and another week of my CSA. Squash, peppers, and corn oh my.
What did you do this weekend? What fun themes have you seen at weddings?
