the night before a stunning MINDY WEISS wedding was an equally beautiful rehearsal dinner…florals by the truly talented PARIS based florist JEFF LEATHAM…the FOUR SEASONS BILTMORE in santa barbara was the perfect backdrop for the hanging hydrangeas & linen table runners…to see more of this lovely rehearsal dinner keep an eye on INSPIRED BY THIS & MINDY WEISS’s BLOG…xoxo

the tradition of “ladies’ privilege”
by URBAN LEGENDS

“In keeping with the theme of nature gone awry, a whimsical tradition dating back at least four centuries (and still trotted out at four-year intervals by newspaper feature writers) holds that leap years confer upon women the “privilege” of proposing marriage to men instead of the other way around. The convention was (in literature, if not in reality) that any man who refused such a proposal owed his spurned suitor a silk gown and a kiss — provided she was wearing a red petticoat at the moment she popped the question.”

so even if he says “no” ladies…you still get a dress & a kiss….not bad

the plan:

to throw a sweet little dinner party
for my brother & his wife, who are
expecting their 1st baby…after a good
meal, they’ll cut into a cake to find out
if they are having a boy or a girl……

as a busy working mother, i need a little help…so my mom
was nice enough to bake the secret cake & bring it to the dinner…

tyring to find inspiration for decorating i turned
to one of my favorite magazines DONNA HAY

this was my decorating result…..

and the official baby cakes result-IT’S A GIRL

& i for one cannot wait to meet her


congratulations lauren & jon….xoxo
