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…

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…

Auden's First Birthday-Pumpkins and Pearls

It's only been 6 months now, but better late than never, right?

Auden turned one on November 11th and we celebrated at our home with close family and friends.  The theme of the party was pumpkins and pearls.  Pun'kin is one of the nicknames I called her when she was little and pearls bring a girly flair and tied into our reveal party when we found out we were having a girl so it seemed perfect.

I had so much fun creating her invitation and all of the party printables.  And for a little extra adornment, the invites were tied with jute twine and placed in scalloped envelope. Invites available for purchase here.

Here's the sweet birthday girl in her homemade hat.  I love how the bow on top turned out :)  Her birthday stats poster is now available here.

The smash cake table with our go-to milk jars (Starbuck frappuccino glasses) with paper straws.  The tree slab plate they are sitting on was also used at our wedding.  The smash cake was a $10 cake from Public and Auden LOVED …
