    My first reaction was "OMG" because I adore this decor. As a booknerd whose favorite place in the world is a bookstore or library, I LOVE the cupcake towers and the centerpieces blew me away. LOVE.

    • I love it too! books can really fill up the space so you don't need as many flowers. It rocks!

  1. Love it! The book theme is terrific and the flower colors are delightful.

  2. OMG! That's adorable! I never thought about doing bookmarks. I love it!

    • I've seen ones that say 'Mark the date' instead of save the date. Too cute! :)

    I'm not so sure if I love the book idea but omgoodness I almost screamed when I saw the primary colour palet. It's exactly what I was thinking for my own, but I was leaning towards more pastel colours, but this is way better! what a riot!

    • glad to have offered you inspiration even if it was an unintended idea, haha. :)
