Plum Nectar

One never knows exactly when an idea will come to fruition when they first have it pop into their mind. Such is the case for this very rich and delicious color scheme. The theme overall was inspired by a painting I kept showing and texting Annabella and Kristin. Each of us pulled out of the painting what we saw individually, which was different times three. The interesting thing is when we show up together, whether after months of planning or 2 days, we don’t know what that final product will be for sure. That said, it’s usually exactly what we visualize or in this case, even better. Glamour and Grace was just like their namesake and graciously helped us show these inspirational photos to the world. Thank you! I must add that one of the phone calls made was to Laura of The Flour Garden and she got no more than a photo of a cake stand and a pen. Of course after designing with my first “naked” cake I had to try a slice. Then another. And one more for the road!
