The Store Across the Street



Yesterday I headed over to the garment district to pick up some green ribbons for a “yet to be determined” wedding project…The Store Across the Street happens to be one of my favorite stomping grounds, and in addition to picking up some beautiful new and vintage ribbons, I noticed they now sell the Martha Stewart Crafts line…if you’re not in the NYC area, you can order their ribbons online here. Here are two of my favorite styles…I’m sure you can guess which colors I bought…

photo favorites: Rebecca Thuss


Rebecca Thuss of ThussFarrell:

Patrick and I were married in December 1998 in Georgetown, Washington
DC. Getting married during the holiday season was a bit hectic, yet
warm and very festive. At the time, I was a style editor at Martha
Stewart Weddings and our wedding was photographed and featured in the
magazine. Our chocolate cake at the center of a dessert buffet was
adorned with sugared pears and bay leaves. It was one of our favorite things
about the day. It just sums up the yummy simplicity and pure joy of our event.

I was so excited to create a dessert buffet. Currently dessert
buffets at weddings are very popular. However, when we featured it in
the magazine in the fall of 1999, it was one of the first we
published in Martha Stewart Weddings.

If I were getting married today our dessert buffet would be much more
over-the-top, insane and fanciful. Back then, the lovely long table
arrangement of vintage transfer ware and glass with confections from
France was elegant and just perfect. I always recommend some sort of
dessert table or display at an event—guests will always remember it!

Eliza Magazine



Finally, I received my issue of Eliza Magazine, complete with wedding section. After searching EVERY magazine stand I could find in NYC and Brooklyn to no avail, I gave in and got myself a subscription. I especially liked the Rock and Roll photo shoot….I glad they found wedding dresses that were both demure AND sexy at the same time. I’m pretty crazy over those combat boots too!
