for my cousin's wedding i knew i had to do something special but quick because her wedding came by surprise and we only had a limited time to plan an event! we couldn't do it at my place or hers because i live too far from all her friends and her house was basically the accommodation for 20 other family members, not the ideal place for a girls bridal shower. lol! so i found a quaint organic restaurant in murfreesboro, TN- Curious Kitchen. it was so perfect and the owners were so sweet and accomodated to all our needs :) and, the food was absolutely delicious. my cousin has always dreamed of visiting japan, so i knew i had to incorporate this into the style but i personally am so tired of the typical red and white japanese theme so i tried to go with a chic blossom, pastel colored twist. i wish i had more room to incorporate other ideas but i'm so happy with the way it turned out and how happy the bride-to-be was! also, buttercream tastes so much better but doesn't make the cake look as pretty as fondant! how do y'all fix this mushy cake looking problem??!
