Social Design :: Seven Spoons :: The Kitchen Apartment Therapy

Technically the first post is from last week but since I discovered the chic orange tone marriage this week, it made this week blogosphere compilation.

Social Design for Love it so much!!

This post showcased a real wedding. What you see in Love it so much!! is amazing in every way. There are a lot of details done in a clean design. It shows that you do not need to pack your décor to make it amazing and substantial.

You get inspired by the daring use of an orange drape for the ceremony, the retro look of the birdcage veil with a starlet nightgown wedding dress up to the modern square table settings. This wedding was featured on Social Design blog, the brain-child of Lyndsi Joy and Amanda Domergue, two young event designers and coordinators from Philadelphia.

Seven spoons for Dear Mr. Truant Officer

I am waiting for my husband to make chocolate molten lava cakes. We updated an absolutely amazing chocolate torte we often do to create our recipe. I wait for him to share it with you because he is the king of desserts in our home.

In the meantime, Tara from Seven spoons published her recipe for Espresso and chocolate fondants. It seems divine. But I have an alternate motive to select this post. Look at these ramekins. The curly handles are so cute. You can find similar ones through Amazon.com. A Canadian young woman is behind the cooking blog Seven spoons since 2005.
