Today’s retro pie wedding inspiration is as meaningful as it is sweet! Imagine my excitement when I found out that one of my favorite movies, Waitress, was being made into a musical by one of my favorite singers, Sara Bareilles! To celebrate this fantastic blend of two things that I love, I wanted to create a design that combines the charming retro palette and sweetly deep plot of the movie!
The movie’s heroine, Jenna, works at a retro pie diner in the South. She waits tables and dreams up the absolute masterpiece pies that the diner serves – confections with names like Strawberry Chocolate Oasis, Marshmallow Mermaid, Peachy Keen Tarts, and a cinnamon spice custard pie called Kick in the Pants. The bright, cheerful colors and mouthwatering pies in the film belies the horrible reality of Jenna’s marriage – her plan to win a bakeoff and use the profits to escape her emotionally abusive husband hits a roadblock when she learns that she’s pregnant. Decadent desserts, a charming role for everyone’s favorite, Nathan Fillion, and a sweetly unexpected love story make this one of my absolute favorite movies!
In need of a sweet treat after the movie? Check out these pie recipes that are as pretty as they are delicious!
