New Adventures in Blogging

While Peaches by Plums is mainly a wedding blog, I am looking to expand my scope to include design, food, and life inspiration.  There are so many beautiful things in the world for us to admire and what a better forum to view them.

I wrote a while back how you can find inspiration anywhere and I think it’s about time to show that!

Lucas Allen, an Australian photographer living in New York, has a style that is right up my alley.

Cool Cake Designs- Circles

With all of the excitement over at Sweet and Saucy Shop, I thought I’d share a great Cake tutorial by the lovely Melody Brandon.


Step 1.) Make sure to get your cake to be a nice smooth finish and chill it slightly.  Melody suggests using royal icing or Swiss/Italian meringue butter cream.

Step 2.) Use a circle cookie cutter to make a mark in the center of the cake and repeat until the whole row is done. Continue making rows until the tier is covered. Melody says that you can pick any size circle you want, but she thinks she did around 1″. Then pipe along the circles. Chilling for 10-15 min after this point will help with the rest of the marking, so that the butter cream circles won’t be pulled off.


Step 3.) Take the circle cutter and mark it in the center of the intersecting circles…see photo below! The circles aren’t perfect, but when you are done with the pattern you can’t tell at all!


Step 4) Pipe the next circles and pipe dots where the lines intersect.




Step 5) Top it off! Melody put a simple bouquet of white tulips on top of the cake and used a cute cake stand to elevate it!

I LOVE the design of this cake.  It is simple, beautiful but unique.  I think that I could even pull this off!

Saipua on Flowers- My New Obsession

It doesn’t happen too often when I find a florist that offers something so unique that it changes the way I think about flowers and Saipua is THAT florist! You can feel the passion and the soul of the florist in these flowers.

There is something so natural and deconstructed about Saipua’s flowers that I fell in love with.  It makes me want to live in a time when each bouquet was delicately wrapped with lovely brown paper and rich ribbon {without it costing a fortune.}  If only I lived in Brooklyn.

Here are a few of my favorites!















Saipua does a wonderful job of creating such original arrangements and matching unique color combination’s and textures.  I absolutely adore them!

{Just Gorgeous!}
