Strawberries and champagne

One of my favorite ways to celebrate a big event is with a bottle or two of bubbly. Although we won't have an official champagne toast, our venue does provide a glass of sparkling wine and strawberries for each guest after the ceremony to kick off the cocktail hour. This should not only be sparkly and delicious, but will also apparently provide a great photo opp!


Since one of a good thing is never enough, strawberries and champagne will be making another special guest appearance on our wedding day: on my skin! See, I am not really a perfume-y type of girl: my favorite scent on human skin is that of soap. I do sometimes indulge in an oatmeal and honey lathering, or rosemary and sage, but that's really as crazy as it gets. I know, I'm a wild one.

For this one big day, I think I'd like to mix it up a little and maybe smell like something other than just soap. So after exhaustive research, I think I've figured out the fragrance for me!

I haven't decided if I'll go for the eu de toilette or the body mist—I'm almost afraid the eu de toilette will be too strong after years of wearing no fragrance at all—but I definitely enjoy this scent. It's fresh and light and natural, and I think Mr. Spaniel will enjoy it, too.

Are you picking a new scent for your wedding day, or going with something tried and true?


  1. Yummy! I really like that scent. You can always start with the mist early in the morning and then layer on the eu de toilette if you want the scent to be stronger for the ceremony.

  2. That scent sounds lovely. Wish I could smell it!

    I normally wear Noa Fleur by Cacharel. But I'm thinking I might wear something different for the wedding - then I can just wear it for special occasions, like anniversaries and the smell will remind me of the wedding.

  3. So funny...we are going to ask our caterer to add strawberries to the glasses for our champgne toast :) It will be a nice accent on the tables since our color scheme (tablescape) is aqua and cranberry colored.

  4. That's one of my favorite scents from them!

  5. Sounds delightful! I love the sparkling wine and strawberries at the reception...that will be such a great photo op! I still have to figure that out...
