It's a handmade montage: cake toppers, paper flowers, and petal cones… pants optional

When you start a week on a beach with no pants, you know it's going to be a good week. Sadly, we're all probably at work, pants probably mandatory. But to make up for it, I'm showing you some of my favorite reader submissions from the Tribe, the Flickr Pool, and Pinterest. This week I went a little overboard with the handmade items, but can there ever be too much? There are Legend of Zelda cake toppers, DIYed paper flowers, sweet little petal cones, and even a Han Solo in carbonite candy mold.

Tribesmaid Deweyandchaucer's handmade groom's cake toppers from GeekMythologyCrafts on Etsy gets major geek cred.

  1. I'm loving the pants optional pic! My fiance and his boys would so do that. I can see it now. Sadly…I don't think my eyes would recover!

      • Haha, right after I posted that my friend linked me right to it out of the blue! Now if I can just convince the intended that he needs to wear something similar.

  5. I love that turtle so much. And so does someone else, clearly. :)

  6. Adding to the turtle love!

    Hmmm…My intended has a collection of adorable stuffed moose…surely one of them should be a ring bearer – two rings, two antlers; it all makes sense. Now to convince HIM! :)
