Inspired Tablescape – Shades of Jade and Doilies Galore

Written by | filed under Portfolio, Wedding Ideas | 15 comments

Back in December, I posted a beautiful photo from Twigs & Honey – I found the colors completely inspiring and, as it turns out, so did Ami of Elizabeth Anne Designs. After a bit of brainstorming and a lot of shared inspiration, one thing led to another and we decide to run with our mutual love of Myra’s photo and collaborate on a fun little project to show how you can take a photo or object you love and use it …

Mike’s Surprise Party – A Basket of Memories

Mike’s Surprise Party – A Basket of Memories

One of the things I love most about my husband is that he’s such a guy’s guy (thus the sports-themed birthday party) and yet he has a quiet sentimental side that I adore. (Read: I am complete sap and I appreciate that he understands that nostalgic, emotional side of my personality.) One of my favorite bits of inspiration that served as quite a driving force behind the details I pulled together for his party were the dozens of baseballs Mike …

Mike’s Surprise Party – The Invitations

Mike’s Surprise Party – The Invitations

When planning Mike’s party I knew I wanted the invitations to be something clean, simple and masculine, because that’s Mike’s style. A point of note – Mike is obsessed with the newspaper.

I’ll preface my source list by noting that I never shop at Walmart and by “never shop at Walmart” I mean I might walk in there once a year at most. Low and behold, last Sunday was my once a year trip into a Walmart and I scored a bunch of basic project supplies for pennies. Moral of the story – don’t be afraid to scope out unlikely places when you’re looking for ideas or need craft supplies. (As it …

Mike’s Surprise 30th Birthday Party

Mike’s Surprise 30th Birthday Party

I thought I’d kick off the week by sharing a little of my weekend with you – the surprise 30th birthday party I threw for my husband on Saturday night! I started planning this party for Mike almost immediately after wedding planning wrapped up and I knew right away that I was going to do everything in red, white and blue in honor of his favorite sports teams the Atlanta Braves and the Buffalo Bills. Mike is an English teacher …

This past weekend I had the extreme pleasure of coordinating Elena and John’s beautiful fall wedding in the Finger Lakes. From day one, Elena was a dream client in my book. She got in touch after being referred by Megan Dailor, one of my absolute favorite photographers to work with, and has since become a friend I know I’ll be staying in touch with for a long time to come. We had picture perfect fall weather for Elena and John’s …
