A Citrus-Inspired Spring Brunch

A Citrus-Inspired Spring Brunch

Citrus-Inspired Spring Brunch Entertaining

Happy Spring you guys! Today I’m sharing a citrus-inspired spring gathering with you. Nothing says spring better than vibrant hues of orange, yellow and pink coupled with citrus!For our springtime tablescape we used sliced and whole citrus (oranges, lemons, limes and grapefruit) paired with stunning spring blooms in vintage milk glass with an airy runner. Isn’t that pink peony a STUNNER!?! If you’re taking your gathering outdoors, don’t be afraid to bring some furniture outside. For our citrus-inspired spring brunch, we used a vintage yellow hutch to house drinks and a long console table for the brunch buffet with coffee, pastries and mini doughnuts.
We hung the adorbs mini doughnuts off of a vintage bottle drying rack and used tangerines as place card holders by tapping a toothpick to the place card and sticking it gently in the fruit. Need an idea for favors or a hostess gift for your spring-themed affair? How about mini marmalade and biscuits? (Complete DIY instructions and recipes coming ‘atcha soon!)Vintage coffee sacks coordinated with the coffee and pastry bar perfectly and crates of oranges completed the look.  … Read more

PRETTY ST. PATRICK’S DAY INSPIRATION

PRETTY ST. PATRICK’S DAY INSPIRATION

Pretty + St. Patrick’s Day? YES, FOLKS! St. Patrick’s Day entertaining doesn’t have to be filled with cheesy decorations, it can be pretty too! Even to those who don’t like shamrock green. You be the judge. Check out this pretty St. Patrick’s Day inspiration I whipped up.

Pretty St. Patrick’s Day Inspiration

Can we talk about this watercolor shamrock stationery? So soft and pretty and it set the perfect tone for our concept! I love the idea of incorporating stationery for any gathering you are hosting. It makes the event feel more special and if you everyone loves receiving something in the mail. When ordering stationery, think beyond the invitation and integrate it into the evening as well. We knew we would have an Irish whiskey bar, so our genius stationery designer designed a custom card for the bar. If you have a variety of drinks or desserts, labeling them with custom cards that coordinate with the invitations is a great way to make the event cohesive.  For the tablescape I started with a soft linen runner along the center of the table.… Read more

Pink Boho Christmas Gathering + Pink Hot Cocoa!

Pink Boho Christmas Gathering + Pink Hot Cocoa!

I can’t believe Christmas is right around the corner! I’m not ready to give up Christmas music, apple cider and holiday decor just yet…and I’m certainly not ready to stop trying to inspire you guys for your holiday entertaining either! Today I’m sharing a cute al fresco concept for a holiday party, girls winter gathering or even a New Years party. How about a pink wonderland tablescape with a low boho table, poufs and pillows, sequins and pink hot cocoa???  If you guys follow me on Instagram, you may have seen the sneak peaks of today’s project on my story a few weeks back. I was inspired by a beautiful image from an Anthropologie catalog earlier this year featuring a low boho table under an oak tree with moss and lanterns hanging from it. I have the perfect oak tree so I decided to use that setting as inspiration for an al fresco, PINK boho Christmas tablescape and of course a bar cart! Huge thanks to Emily Katharine Photography for capturing the day perfectly, per usu.

Edgy, Glam Holiday Party Inspiration

OK you guys! Get ready for some glam holiday party inspiration!green-holiday-party-inspiration

Remember how I told you guys I used to own a vintage rental and styling company? Well, before closing the doors to my business, I did one last wedding styled shoot hoorah with my dear friend Emily. You guys know Emily, she snapped the pics in my post about how to host an easy Fall brunch. A “styled shoot” in the wedding industry is when a lot of wedding vendors come together and basically put on a fake wedding. Each vendor typically donates their time and services in order to network, exercise some creative freedom, push boundaries and/or experiment with new techniques, and everyone involved gets the images to use for marketing. We enlist everything you would need for a wedding, down to the “bride” and “groom.” I conceptualized and styled the shoot, and I couldn’t have asked for a better team for my last wedding shoot with my industry friends!  Annnndddd I’m so happy that my favorite wedding blog, Green Wedding Shoes, featured our work!

Organic, Boho Thanksgiving Tablescape Inspiration

Today is the last day of my three part tablescape inspiration series (sniffle sniffle). To recap, part one was a soft pastel pink and gold tablescape, part two was an elegant tablescape with black and deep red. It was such a fun project and I’m so psyched that our tables and my tips for entertaining this Thanksgiving were featured on Style Me Pretty Living as well as a second feature for the cocktails! I’m also so honored to have worked with Le Creuset who provided some of their amazing enameled cookware for the project! I hope I inspired you guys to do something a little different this year! The last and final tablescape I’m sharing is an organic, boho Thanksgiving tablescape and I think this one is my favorite. I mean, I love them all, but this one has some super cute touches. Here goes!

EASY FALL BRUNCH ENTERTAINING IDEAS

EASY FALL BRUNCH ENTERTAINING IDEAS

Who loves brunch? Errreeeeyyybody loves brunch. At least they should. It’s an excuse to sleep in and have cocktails with your late breakfast. If you’re not brunching regularly you have got to get with the program, folks! Recently I styled an easy fall brunch and I’m excited to share it with you today!

easy-fall-brunch-ideas

I love brunch. I love entertaining. However, I’m not the best in the kitchen so I typically try to prepare dishes that are easy, that I can prep the day or night before so I can spend more time focusing on the things that I enjoy more (like place settings haha). This also helps free me up to mingle with the guests when they arrive and not be chained to the kitchen stove.

Easy Fall Brunch Inspiration

We recently hosted some friends over for brunch. It was right after the official day of fall so of course, I would go all out with the traditional fall theme. Even though here in Florida early fall means nothing to the weather man. Despite the hot, muggy weather, I was determined to create a cozy, fall brunch, dammit.… Read more
