because everyone loves cake…

by Grace Bonney

i love a good dessert, and love it even more when the dessert is in some way clever or unexpected. so when i heard from brandy and rebecca from the regional assembly of text about this typewriter cake they had at their 4 year anniversary party i couldn’t resist.

sometimes party decorations and invites are my favorite types of design. they’re usually small-scale, united around a single theme and can focus on the sorts of handmade crafts that i love to make for friends and family. i love their simple invites, all based around the number “4” and the beautiful cake that their friend allison chambers made by hand. sometimes sweet little design details like this make for the most memorable events. thanks to rebecca and brandy for sharing.
