Design Double Take

We haven’t expressed our love for Behance in while, (to jog your memory it’s the super cool site that showcases up and coming graphic designers’ work) so we wanted to share a project we have been admiring of late. Texas A&M graduate Ryan Russell is an Animator and Graphic Designer who focuses on simple and minimal forms.  Case in point: his purist, yet striking city designs defined by the iconic structures that mark the metropolises we love.

Trés Chic Monogram Moment

Oh my Macaron! Today we’re rather smitten with this stunning spread of desserts from a Mid Summer Nights dream themed wedding! Forgoing a traditional wedding cake for  bite-size nibbles is a fun way to offer your guests a variety of sweet treats. They’re also perfect for snagging in between twirls around on the dance floor!

But obviously we do think macrons, featuring the bride and groom’s initials take the…cake. {ahem, pun intended}. It’s an ingenious idea we may just have to steal! We love that you could also apply it to many other occasions. Birthday parties, bridal or baby showers – they’d even make a fabulous house warming gift. The rest of this beautiful wedding is just as delicious looking as the macarons, it’s the perfect pastel eye candy we need this Monday!

Apple {Of My Eye} Recipes!

In honor of Fall’s arrival, we are celebrating one of the season’s most abundant fruits, apples! They are in their peak season during the chillier months and make the best desserts. Something about the crisp, tart juices paired with sweet fillings and flakey dough has us giddy to bake up a storm this time of year!

You can start with Fall’s signature dessert: Apple Pie of course! Apple Pie Day maybe on May 13th (now you know), but we crave apples all Fall long! It is as American as, well, you know! It is large classic slice of Americana, best served a la mode, mmm! Click READ MORE for five fab recipes.
