Papier mache centerpieces, fairy wings, and some awesome cake cuttings

Tribesmaid Remi crafted these epic papier mache chess pieces with her groom the summer before they got engaged. She says, "We're not even that into chess, but after spending 100+ man-hours making them, they seemed like the perfect centerpieces." I imagine anything with that much love and elbow grease is worth making a fuss over. This week's reader submissions also bring us some playground fun, a family cake cutting, a not-so-family cake cutting, and a couple clad in fairy wings and a cape. It's all-around fun this week in the Monday Montage.
