Denver, Colorado

Jon and I just got back from our first trip to Denver, Colorado. I had never been to Colorado and Jon had only visited briefly in Bolder so we were both in for a treat. My good friend Adrienne and her fiance Greg got married there, and I got the honor of being one of her bridesmaids. It was a fabulous affair, and we had a blast meeting all of their friends and family. We also got to see downtown a bit and go to a Rockies game. One of my favorite things though, was the amazing weather. It felt like fall! I kept saying to myself "I can't believe it's July, and it feels this pleasant outside!" We definitely want to make another trip back and explore more. Adrienne and Greg, thanks for a great weekend!

While we were gone, our friend Peggy was nice enough to watch Remington for us for the long weekend. He and her dog Daisy have become fast friends. Here's a picture of them from the weekend. Thanks for all of the help, Peggy!

  2. Oh Lissa. How I wish what you said was true! Trust me, I have my fair share of double chin photos. Just not on here since I get to select the ones I want! Thanks for the compliment though :)

Southern Gentleman Baby Shower

Last month I helped throw my best friend (we met in 9th grade speech class :)) Lauren's baby shower for her soon-to-arrive baby boy, Gunner.  The shower had a "Southern gentleman" theme complete with bow ties, silhouettes and gingham print.  Personal touches and family items were used throughout, including baby Gunner's dad's bow ties :)


Gunner's daddy's "going home" outfit greeted guests at the sign in table, along with a framed "Southern gentleman in the making" print.


A variety of centerpieces graced the tables with groupings of baby mementos, flowers and photos.

An antique baby basket helped house the gifts.
The drink menu consisted of milk, apple juice (one of Lauren's cravings), fruit-infused water and coffee.
The menu was made of a variety of brunch goodies including fruit, doughnuts, muffins, shrimp and grits, breakfast casserole and a waffle bar. 
And of course no shower is complete without a little something sweet. These b…

Christmas Trees-Part 2 (Rustic and Coastal)

Here are my other favorite Christmas tree styles-rustic and coastal (since we're moving to Florida).  Enjoy!

Use tea stained manila tags to create ornaments.  So simple, yet so cute.

This rustic tree has just the right mix of gold, silver and burlap...my faves!  The stockings are adorable too.

Christmas at the beach anyone?  Starfish make the perfect adornments for a coastal holiday.

Coastal blues bring this tree (and these presents) to life in this traditional home. 

This tree is full of more starfish and the hydrangeas and chartreuse color palette remind me of my wedding :)

Now to decide which style to use...or perhaps a mix of the styles is in order!  Do you change the theme of your tree every couple of years?

Giraffe 1st Birthday

Over two months later, I'm finally getting around to posting on my nephew Cohen's first birthday!  Because he was born just six days before Christmas, it was important to my sister, Meredith, to have a party to make him feel special, separate of the normal seasonal celebrations.  And I'm always up for a planning a good party!

Since Cohen was little baby, he has loved giraffes.  First introduced with the paper mache bust hanging over the changing pad in his nursery(here), my sister says he's been a fan ever since.  Using that as the inspiration, the party planning began.  Meredith found an invitation she liked at Tiny Prints and thus the color palette of green, yellow and brown was established.


Cohen wore a monogrammed yellow chevron coverall on the big day, and the cheerful pattern was also used throughout the party.  To create a prominent backdrop on the fireplace mantel, we covered a remant piece of beadboard with chevron fabric.  It made a big statement with little…
