Mix It Up: Honey Plum Splash

Throughout October I’m going to be taking some time off and have invited a handful of my favorite bloggers to join us. Today we’re welcoming Kelly of Santa Barbara Chic, an absolutely beautiful blog chock full of lovely ideas for weddings and entertaining. Kelly is a wonderfully talented stylist, blogger and floral designer and it’s such a joy to welcome her today.

Hello The Sweetest Occasions readers! My name is Kelly and I’m a lifestyle and weddings blogger, prop stylist, floral and event designer, and I’m based in beautiful Santa Barbara. I’m a big fan of a tasty cocktail any day of the week, and every Friday my associate editor Melissa, shakes up something tasty on my blog. This drink was inspired by the plum tree in Melissa’s backyard and my love of whiskey…enter the Honey Plum Smash!
