Party Shopping: Rustic Campsite Fun

Party Shopping: Rustic Campsite Fun

As promised earlier, I put together a fun shopping guide to help you recreate the rustic campsite vibe of the camping themed baby shower and campsite wedding inspiration shoot created by Jesi Haack Design, JL Designs and Sweet and Saucy Shop as photographed by Gabriel Ryan Photographers. Both of these designs were all about old school camping nostalgia. As a camping junkie (I actually drink my morning coffee out of an oversized blue enamel mug) I love this look. First …

Party Shopping: Rainbows and Confetti

Good morning and happy Monday! I thought I’d start the week with a punch of color and sparkle. Sound ok with you? This is actually a little feature I’ve been wanting to introduce for a while – party shopping guides! (Better late than never, right?)

Eggnog + Gold Inspiration Board

Christmas may have come and gone, but I love this festive gold and eggnog inspiration board from Snippet & Ink to inspire upcoming New Year’s Eve parties. A simple monochromatic color palette with touches of sparkle and sheen sets the tone for an elegant and warm celebration with soft vintage details. With a glass of champagne in hand, this is a pretty and magical way to ring in the new year.

I love this inspiration board so much I’ve been staring at it off and on all week, which seemed perfect …
