Flora, fauna, baubles, and yummies — you'll love these details

By on Jul. 11th

The Offbeat Flickr Pool had some serious flora, fauna, baubles, and yummies. This week's Montage is all about the nitty-gritty details.

Kimberly made these DIY bouquets from maps, which makes them pop with color. Ya'll know we love our paper flowers!

Kimberly also made these amazing colored coffee filter centerpieces! She said, "Afterwards we gave most of them to the nurses in the oncology unit — fresh flowers aren't allowed!" Crafty and philanthropic. She's a keeper.

This cake at Nicole and PJ's wedding is so famous, it has to go incognito.

Tribe member LindyShoes' friend V models her DIY garter flask holder. Sometimes a lady just likes a nip or two before the bouquet toss.

LindyShoes' also lives up to her namesake by sporting these amazing retro heels. And as she says, "blisters were totally worth it." Oh girl, for shoes like that, you know it.

Cynamin's groom, Mark, had a surprise green cake from his mother. He baked her a green cake back when he was fifteen and it was payback time!

Nikki and Randee had a most fabulous pink donut cake. Being a pie > cake person myself, I totally approve of this cake alternative.

In case you missed what was happening on top of that donut cake because you were looking at the donuts (and then craving a donut), here is the detail shot. I'm pretty sure we can safely call this "the glitterati."

Stephanie probably posed for a million photos due to the hawtness of this rainbow-tulled gown-of-awesome. Her rainbow ribbon veil is icing on the cake. And bonus: check out their hilarious save-the-date vid featuring one harsh critic!

I love the expressions in this shot after Fae's ceremony. It's an awesome combination of love and "aww yeah!" And they got hitched in Chicago thanks to the new civil union law in Illinois.
