Cupcakes Galore

Sunday, December 2nd, 2007

The gourmet cupcake trend has not shown signs of dying down. And why should it? Everyone loves cupcakes. From Magnolia Bakery in New York City to Sprinkles in LA and Kara’s Cupcakes here in San Francisco, I’ve tried and love them all. Incidentally, the best cupcake I have ever had, ...

Taking a real stand

Tuesday, October 30th, 2007

Talk about true dedication to the environmental causes! For most of us, including me, being socially conscious and environmentally friendly is usually something we do in our spare time and only when convenient. We would hardly compromise something as precious as our wedding rings. But for couples who are serious ...

Try it Self-Served

Sunday, October 14th, 2007

I’ve been to a few weddings with decent food…I have. The filet at the Ritz, San Francisco was done perfectly for example. But unfortunately, most of the wedding food I’ve had has been underwhelming. Usually the beef is overcooked, the vegetables soggy and everything is drowning in sauce. It’s gotta ...

Blooms of Friendship

Monday, September 24th, 2007

My best friend Lindsay got married this weekend and while the entire day including ceremony and reception from start to finish was filled with unique and beautiful details such as the way they used colorful fall leaves in the place of rose petals to dust the isle, the one detail ...

Country Chic

Monday, September 3rd, 2007

From Zoo Weddings (7/18 entry) to country weddings, it must seem like I have city slickers syndrome. Maybe I am projecting my need for a get back to nature vacation on to my job. I look at wedding magazines all day and I see photographs of outdoor weddings on a ...

5 Star Engagement

Monday, August 6th, 2007

I got the call and on the other end of the line was my friend…trying to be casual but clearly ecstatic with news that she’s engaged! I’ve been getting a lot of these calls lately. Of course I ask, “how did he pop the question?!” It happened at Gary Danko ...

A Taste of the Wild

Wednesday, July 18th, 2007

I’ve loved visiting the zoo since I was a kid. I love animals and when I was little I wanted to be a trainer to one of those animal actors like Bart the Bear (he’s in like every movie that features a bear). When I went to Las Vegas, I ...

Lucky in Love?

Wednesday, July 4th, 2007

It’s the Fourth of July. I just baked a blueberry pie and am getting ready to head to a friend’s barbeque. But an estimated 37,000 couples will not have the luxury of celebrating the Fourth this year with a leisurely BBQ and watching fireworks. This Saturday will be 7/7/07, the ...

Dress Shopping

Monday, June 18th, 2007

On Saturday I accompanied my newly engaged girl friend to a couple of bridal boutiques in San Francisco to try on wedding gowns. We quickly narrowed the shape down to strapless modified A-line because of her petite frame. But when faced with choices for fabric, colors, embellishments, neckline and bodice ...

Interactive Colors

Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

Saturday afternoon, Memorial weekend, I decided to visit the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. There I came across some paintings by abstract artist Josef Albers from a series he called Homage to the Square. The paintings are simple…just concentric squares in brilliant mono-chromatic or contrasting colors. I love minimalist ...
