The Dish Ran Away

  • When my little sister—Trish "The Dish"—got married, there was lots to do. Mostly, for my part, I went to department stores and took awkward photos of myself posing in potential bridesmaid dresses; planned (with my mother who is not one to be left out) a bachelorette weekend; and served as lukewarm emotional support and a third pair of eyes for my mother and sister in the throws of picking and planning.

    I also designed the bachelorette party invitation and, again with my mother, put together favors—straw beach bags complete with custom sarongs and beach towels in fun fabrics, all heavy on the hot pink.

    I designed cookies as a sweet little take-away from the wedding reception in collaboration with Scott Calvert and The Cake Plate.
