I got married exactly a year ago: Crazy that it’s been a year. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about it. (For all of you brides-or-grooms-t0-be who feel a little ambivalent about having a wedding, see if you can get past it: Rob and I felt extremely awkward about doing it, but it was truly the best weekend of our lives.) Besides the memories that flit on through my head, we have a giant…memorial?…to our wedding in our apartment. We put four long tables in our tent in an “X” formation, and gave every table a color theme (to match the stripes of a Pendleton blanket). There was a lot of organic matter (flowers, apples, figs, thistles), but there were also a ton of color-appropriate vessels, many of which were sourced from small designers on Etsy, and vintage resellers on eBay. Putting those tables together was arguably one of the most fun parts of planning the whole thing. SO: When my mom decided that our barn in Montana wasn’t a Mini-Storage, she shipped me everything…and I did what anyone who loves color-coding objects would do, and re-architected the stripes on our kitchen wall. So what does this have to do with Up In The Air Somewhere? I’m obsessed with their home goods, specifically these yellow, rubber-dipped cups and the delicate papier-maché bowls. So pretty, right? I totally would have worked those into the arrangements. Between this and Bona Drag’s foray into wedding dresses, maybe Rob and I should do it all again.
