Travel for a wedding to Milwaukee…the beer country!


My cousins' son got married in July and they hosted the wedding in a unique venue, Mitchell Park Conservatory in Milwaukee.  2014 is the year of the weddings for our family thus travel to places that we never had on a bucket list.  A few pictures from the wedding and local Architecture.






 
Major League Brewery town!  What fun way to drink beer?  Pedal Taverns on the road that you can hop in and hop out!
 

 I always imagined Milwaukee to be an industrial, beer making town, but today we find it’s beauty!  These houses are located on the shores of Lake Michigan.  Looking at these houses and some of the old buildings around town, I realize that Milwaukee is rich in history and culture.   







Imagine the view over Lake Michigan.

 
There is no town that gets left out without me scoping out Interior Design stores, Art Galleries and markets…

Bridal Shower Inspiration - tons of tiny thoughtful details

There is no better reason to get together than to celebrate and honor the soon to be Mrs!  I was invited to a Bridal shower of a good friends' daughter and it was a fun afternoon.  The mother of the bride decorated their house with a cottage meet glam theme (my assumption!).  Here is for you to ohhh and ahh over some pictures.  Note to self, need to take better pictures...

The bride to be is a lovely, down to earth girl who deserves this and more!

The mother had ordered the table cloth and the gold runner from the net.

 
Did you notice the little jar with honey and the "meant to be" label.  Only the bottle of honey was purchased, but the label, burlap cover, the little bee all done by the mother of the bride...what talent!  Tiny thoughtful details made the difference.





The flower arrangements were exceptionally gorgeous.  Lots of flowers in all different containers, glasses, bottles, vases, tea cups etc.


 
 

What a bright idea to meet the bridesmaids right as you enter.



 Party highlights - Tasty food, food presentation, framed labels, dessert table, plants, flowers, white birdcage candles and the list goes on.

A walk down Abbots Lane and Gerrards Cross - Trip to London

We recently came back from London attending a lovely wedding. 
 

The wedding d├ęcor and cake made by the famous Sonia Tissera;


 
While in London, we, my husband and I tried to keep fit since we have started taking exercise seriously...with no dent in sight!  As I have said before, our vacations include gastronomic enjoyment which is inevitable.  We stayed in two places, with our friend and cousin.  So we decided to take a walk down our friends' and cousins' lane.  Both live on beautiful streets with houses that are unique and full of character.

My cousin's home below...I love drive ways with pebble stones.
