except... wouldja believe... i completely and totally forgot to take ANY PHOTOS AT ALL??!?!!
yep. it's true. don't ask me how, but i was so focused, the idea of pictures utterly slipped my mind until i sat down that night to think about making a page for the day. you can imagine my feelings upon making this realization. because *HOW* do you document the perfect brunch without photos?! i mean, you can't. and the brunch was the story of the day. it actually took a couple of days to hit me: on such a day, the story might not turn out to be the brunch... maybe the story might actually BE forgetting to take photos? now *that* ya can make a page about! so i did:
|(transparency: hambly; guest check digi element from 2peas' retired "christmas shopping" kit; foam thickers: american crafts; vintage doily; photos printed on kodak premium glossy paper)|
i used a vintage style hambly transparency to float all of the elements on top. here you can see the underneath page, which is from a 1970's holiday cookbook:
no weiner trees* were harmed in the making of this page! :)
*someone-- probably my sister-- sent me the weiner tree photo a few weeks before the brunch, noting that it was clearly the epitome of a classy holiday dish. which it is, obviously! in my family, that's the kind of thing that becomes the visual equivalent of a "catch phrase" and will now be forever associated with elegant christmas entertaining. december party in the works? awesome! who's bringing the weiner tree??! :) :) :)
