It´s A Wrap

Images By Marie

In my opinion, how you choose to wrap in a present says a lot. If it is done with love and thoughtfulness it shines thru and shows that the person who is receiving it matters to you and is important to you. That is why I always try to lay an effort in all my gift wrappings. I try to make it personal or maybe follow a particularly team. 
In this case, the gift was for my beautiful little goddaughter, Julie, for her baptism. I wanted it to be girly and cute with a touch of spring, therefor the catkins (not quite sure if that is the correct word in english, so forgive me if it´s not) and butterfly! 
What are your thoughts around gifts wrappings? 
Not important, only whats inside that matters or
 very important, it matters how you represent the gift?

I Could Really Need A Little Bit Of This

I´m having a little trouble with my back these days so it would be heaven to have a reel good spa treatment. 
Too bad it is so extremely expensive!

So what´s your plans for the weekend? I have a full schedule; saturday I´m working and then off to a birthday party (think it is going to be great, catch up with friends and just having fun) and sunday I´m going to my friends daughters baptism. And guess what?! I´m the godmother (is that what you call it?)!!! 
I am so proud, it is a great honor

BUT FIRST, I´m going to enjoy this delicious cheesecake. I wish I could say I have made it myself, but unfortunately I have NOT!

I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

Beautiful Bridal Bouquets

Wonderful colors...

So fluffy...

My favorite! Simple, yet beautiful...

Love this one...

Hmmm, beautiful, but I´m not the biggest fan of red...

Ooooh, peonies...

Not sure about the feathers....

I love flowers and sometimes I daydream about how I want my future wedding bouquet to be! Not that I am getting married anytime soon, but it is always fun to fantasize ;)
I like all the above bouquets, some of them more than others. I tend to be drawn to a little bit of simple things so my favorite is the one with big, pink, beautiful peonies. It is simple, yet so so gorgeous! And if I haven't mentioned it before; pink peonies are my absolute FAVORITE flower!
