Yesterday could have possibly been the greatest day that I have ever had. Well okay, my wedding was the greatest day. Yesterday was a pretty close second. Style Me Pretty, along with four other wonderful blogs, was featured by Martha Stewart on her morning show. Yep, it's true. She opened the show with a little segment on blogs, then mentioned a few of us in the audience, mine included! It was SUCH an honor and to be honest, I don't think that a single producer there knew that I wasn't completely over the moon. I had a hard time keeping the silly, little girl grin off my face, I clapped a little too loudly and I jumped up to lead the standing ovation when Martha walked out. Well at least that is what I was doing in my head:)
Anyway, to thank her, I thought that I would do a post on her 10th anniversary issue, published in 2005 which was briefly shown on yesterday's show. Here are her top ten favorite wedding stories...
The Top Row: The first photo is a suite of wedding stationery which Martha believes makes the details of your wedding more memorable and personal. The second photo is a green bouquet, mixing viburnum with Queen Anne's lace. The third photo is a tower of roses cake from 1998.
The Second Row: The first photo is a unique arrangement from 2000 which pairs mauve and citrus green, alternating sizes to take advantage of a long table. The second is a wreath made of fresh flowers, this one using freesia, dahlias and roses. Perfect for a "just married" car. The third photo was created using 150 hybrid tea roses and was formed into a heart shape. So pretty. The fourth picture is a group of details that incorporate a distinct theme...in this case, daisies.
The Bottom Row: Of course, the gorgeous tower of cupcakes that was featured in the 2003 issue and has become so popular. The second photo is a winter white candy bar, featured in 2001. The third photo are "dragees all dressed up." Perfect ways to make a classic wedding treat, so unique.
So, thank you Martha, for featuring Style Me Pretty on your show. It was an incredible experience that I will not forget. And to readers, if you ever have an opportunity to make a NY trip and visit the Martha Stewart Show, you are in for such a treat. The set is gorgeous, Martha is captivating and watching the show unfold is a true experience.
