Weddings in France are a DIY affair.  My wedding was no exception.  My family flew in to Paris from all parts of the world, battling extreme jetlag to help us arrange flowers the night before.  I think the moment my mom truly warmed up to my now-husband was when she saw him trimming roses and expressing himself.  (ndlr: hehe)

The recent wedding of two close friends was no exception. The American-obsessed bride and groom were open to ideas to personalize their countryside wedding in the rolling hills of Corrèze, in south-central France.  First up, an American dessert buffet created by a team of sweet toothed friends, myself included.

Since the wedding was hosted in the land of foie gras, a refrigerator display case borrowed from the local market held our greatest hits of American desserts, illuminating the party into the wee hours of the morning.

Since my apple pie already donned stars and stripes (thanks, Pinterest!), I crafted a custom star spangled banner, too. And the bride and groom and their company of merry moutons.

Viva les mariés!

Looking for a way to eat more seasonally?  Looking for a way to get your kids involved in sustainable eating, too?  I am very pleased to introduce you to a new series, Color Me Seasonal, a fun and friendly guide to buying in season.  Each month, I will illustrate the fruits and vegetables of the moment. Print it out, take it with you to the market and color each fruit or vegetable to check them off your list.  Share a pic using the hashtag #colormeseasonal.  You will be left with a pretty picture, a happy stomach and a healthier ecosystem.
