Spring Weddings

Spring is just a few days away.  And you know what that means...wedding season is about to be in full-gear!  If you've been a reader for awhile, you know that I love all things wedding.  And that even though I've been married for 11 months now, I still enjoy perusing wedding blogs and dreaming of what I would do if I got married again...to the same man of course :)  

Seriously, if weddings weren't so expensive, I would have one every year.  That's how much I love them!  Don't get me wrong, I loved my wedding.  But it's kind of like redecorating a room in your house.  You love it when you first do it...and then a few years down the road you think of other great ideas you'd love to see in the space!  It's a never-ending battle with evolving creativity and style. 

But since I won't be having another wedding, I'll just share my newfound ideas/loves with you guys and pretend like I'm planning one all over again. :)

I love love love this venue!  It's an indoor/outdoor wedding space full of charm and rustic beauty!  


This vintage suitcase also functions as a wedding program holder.  Way better than the traditional basket, right?  I think it would be great at any wedding, but especially cute for a destination wedding.  What says destination better than a suitcase?

I don't know what I love most about this cake--the daintiness of the flowers or the ombre effect of the orange colors.  Either way, I think it's so sweet and unique.

Weddings that scream rustic-elegance are by far my favorite.  This is definitely a perfect description of that with the distressed chairs, rustic setting, iridescent table clothes, and classic floral centerpieces.

Speaking of florals, how stunning are these bouquets?  The soft color palette and mixed textures are to die for.

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…

Planes or Pearls? Gender Reveal Party

On Friday, June 28th, Jon and I headed out to see the gender of Baby Reutter.  Jon wanted to find out as soon as possible, and I wanted to wait to be surprised with everyone at the reveal party the next day. So we decided that he would find out and be the one set up the "big reveal."  Baby Reutter didn't want to cooperate on the first attempt but after some cold water, walking around and sweet patience from the ultrasound tech, we got the "money shot."  I'm not going to lie, it was a bit torturous at first to not be in the know with Jon, but after the first few hours, I was good to go and so excited about the surprise for the next day.  Here we are about to head out to the reveal appointment.
Now for the reveal party on Saturday...As mentioned before, I wanted a unique theme for the party.  Since Jon is a pilot, I thought planes would be a cute idea for a boy.  For the girl, I thought of pearls; they're sweet, feminine and also happen to be my birthsto…

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…
