Favorite Things

This past Monday, I had a wonderful opportunity to travel to New York City to attend the Martha Stewart Weddings Bridal Market Party on behalf of Best Friends for Frosting, an online dessert magazine. As a contributor for BFFF, I was asked to represent our team at the event. It was an assignment I was happy to accept. The evening was spectacular and I am still pinching myself because I feel like I was dreaming. You can read about my experience at Best Friends For Frosting but for today's post, it only seems fitting that I share my favorite moments from the night. I hope you all had a great week. Happy Friday!

The Party

I was so excited that I could take two of my daughters, Lynsie and Elizabeth, with me. We had so much fun together.

We were fortunate enough to be standing front and center when Martha Stewart and Darcy Miller kicked off the evening.

I was thrilled to meet Darcy Miller, Editorial Director for Martha Stewart Weddings

We were honored to be guests at the (unofficial) wedding ceremony of Alex Pelling and Lisa Gant, the couple behind the blog 2 People 1 Life.

Watching famous cake designer Sylvia Weinstock personally deliver and serve a cake she designed for Alex and Lisa.

Chatting with American jazz musician Steve Tyrell.

I just loved the flowers on the wedding cake.

The sugar flower I brought home from the Sugar Flower Cake Shop.

The amazing talent of Sandy Patangay, from Creme Delicious. I was amazed at the detail in her Henna Cake.

Cake stands, cake stands, cake stands!

The prop house for magazine photo shoots.

A gingerbread house that was in the middle of construction. I wonder if we will be seeing this in the holiday edition of Martha Stewart Living.

The lesson for this week is Never Say Never! Have a wonderful weekend!
