Not really mini but at least it's crafty

 As you know, my daughter got engaged on Thanksgiving Day. The wedding will be November 1, 2014, and will have a rustic feel with accents of camouflage with real trees and leaves in the design. K and I have spent a lot of time on Pinterest searching for ideas. We found a pinecone bride and groom used as a cake topper. That was my inspiration for this one.
 The groom hasn't seen it yet, so it may not be their actual cake topper but K likes it so it likely will be. He likes to make her happy. :-) The camouflage is the only thing he's insisted on and K likes it, too.
The bridesmaids (in chocolate brown dresses) and K will all have ribbon sashes in the pink camouflage. The groom will be wearing a white snow camouflage vest and his groomsmen will be wearing vests in one of the brown camouflage patterns. Decor will be pinecones, white pumpkins and other readily available natural things. I think it will be really pretty.

K says that I am the wedding planner, florist and maker of the invitations. I am excited about all of it but it seems likely that mini time will be taking a back seat to wedding for awhile. The things that I can make ahead, I want to work on before garden time. I am usually canning through mid October and I don't want to be frantically finishing up wedding things with only two weeks to spare. The plus side is that all of you will get previews of all the fun stuff. ;-)

How exciting ! If you're going to use pinecone toppers, you might want to check out the pinecone cheeseball I made for Teatime Tuesday last week. Easy-peasy and pretty too .

Looking forward to seeing how you go about getting things done in your creative way for the wedding .

Thank you!

Kathy, I am thinking that the pinecone cheese ball will make a great bridal shower snack. Yours looks so pretty!
