Creative Registries

As the time approaches to the wedding, I find myself thinking about it more and more.  I have to make effort now to think about something other than registries, Italy, or the wedding at all.  However, since its on my mind again, I thought I’d blog about it.

I went through our registries last week, taking off items no longer available and changing somethings.  This has probably been the best part so far of the wedding planning process because it involves so much creativity and dreams.  I have come to the conclusion that I love Crate and Barrel.  Some of my favorite items are on that registry; like the colorful apron (and adjustable too which is a must because most aprons just don’t fit me right), and set of Parker bowls (all different and vibrant colors).  We will have color in our kitchen; mostly a ‘cobalt blue’-like color with red and some green.  And as I read more of Edith Schaeffer’s What is a Family I really tried to choose items that will inspire future creativity in the kitchen.

One of Brian’s favorite items (and I think I can say this here) is the corn-holders and dishes from Crate and Barrel.  My family never used corn dishes or holders, but Brian’s family did.  The bright yellow dishes also adds lots of color.

We don’t have an apartment yet, nor furniture, but I hope that we will continue to develop a home that will inspire creativity.  More than a color scheme or certain style of dishes, I think that is what inspired our choices for the items we registered for (though things like shoe racks or vaccuums are just necessary).
