Crushin’ on Rue

I don’t know about you guys, but the latest issue of Rue magazine had me all in a tizzy.  It’s their first International Travel and Adventure issue, and it is AMAZING.

I’ve been spending quite a bit of time recently plotting the tablescape for our wedding here in Cayman next year (ahem, may have been to put off writing the save the dates…busted), and I feel as if the Rue editorial team somehow took a peek inside my head and did an entire shoot around what they found there.  Seriously, the piccies you are about to see (warning: you may find yourself gazing at them for about 3 hours) are an exact replica of what I have in mind for our big bash (minus the camel).  Actually a camel could be fun, I wonder if I could ship one in from Miami…

Is your mind not totally blown with this ethnic beaut of a tablescape??! 

So I figured I’d have a go at sourcing my own version, let me know what you think!

      Haha, well I’m glad I’m not alone! Annoyingly (I was about to write ‘devastatingly’, but realised I don’t like it quite that much…) I can’t rent any on island – I’m seriously considering a mass flatwear purchase, but think that might be going a bit OTT… I just can’t stop staring at this shoot, there’s no way I’m going to get any work done today!
