#167: waitress.

have you seen that movie with keri russell? it's an indie film that's kind of sort of about pie. and surprisingly, i really enjoyed it. actually, i really like any movie that centers around food. actually, i like anything that involves or revolves around food...

it occured to me that i could make my favorite pie in all the world...marie callender's cream cheese pie...double duty it as a centerpiece and dessert. as described on their site: "If you’re a lover of cheesecake, this pie is for you. A melt-in-your-mouth cream cheese filling in a graham cracker crust, with a pure sour cream topping." all for $10. yummy, right?

so what i'd do is get a bunch of different cakestands and set a pie on each one to place in the center of each round table. ideally, i'd want a glass cover or a cylinder hurricane to keep dust away...but if there's no room in the budget, just a funky cakestand with a pie would suffice.

i mean, if you're going to bite into heaven, would you mind that it's been sitting out of the box for 1 hour?

***exciting! time for my first poll! thanks to reader heather who so endearingly hooked me up!!!***

I thought about food/dessert centerpieces but then how do you get little piglets like me to refrain from digging in early?

Mmmm... pie... I'd be a very happy wedding guest!

And budget-birdie: you don't!

I think that's a really cool idea. I remember seeing something similar somewhere- a bride had set up mini versions of the wedding cake on everyone's table, and it made for a very beautiful centerpiece. Then it was also dessert!
