If you follow along with me on Instagram then you likely saw snippets of last week’s brunch hosted by Minted that I attended in New York last Tuesday. A small group of magazine editors and bloggers were invited to partake in delicious food and share in the excitement of some of Minted’s latest and greatest products and services. (Which I’m telling you, you’re going to love.) And today I have all the gorgeous photos to share with you from the event! From the decor to the venue to the gorgeous flowers, everything was just beautiful and I loved having a chance to catch up with old friends over a meal of food. (What’s not to love, right?)
Are you in love yet? Because you should be. As part of the day’s festivities, Minted shared that they’re reintroducing letterpress wedding invitations, new super luxe options for flat printed invitations and taking their party decor offerings to the next level. All of the party decor came from their Matthiola collection created by Moglea and was styled by my home girl from way back, Jenny Batt of Hank + Hunt. Which basically means, if you love this brunch, you’ll be able to recreate the look yourself at your next celebration. From the bunting to the drink flags to the gorgeous paper mobile and the dramatic wall of paper fans, Minted is bringing you only the most stylish of party offerings. As a design-minded company, Minted is bringing that passion for design to you in a way that will make it so simple to coordinate every element of your event. I love that.
I don’t know about you, guys, but I’m in love. I could have sat there all day soaking in all the gorgeous decor. In fact, I was mighty tempted to do just that! Many thanks to Minted for inviting me to be a part of such a wonderful celebration! (And many thanks to the great folks at The Little Owl for rocking an amazing event!) Stay tuned because I’m sure you’ll be hearing a whole lot about Minted in the coming months as they keep on keepin’ on bringing the awesome party and wedding design.

I was so excited to have Meghan share this beautiful engagement shoot and I’m pretty sure you’re going to love it, too. Jackie and Matt met and fell in love in Los Angeles but have since relocated to Melbourne, Australia. Over the holidays they returned home to California for their wedding where they rented a sweet little mid-century house for their stay. Oh and they also got together with Meghan a couple of days before the wedding to shoot these beautiful photos. I love everything about them. From the gorgeous light to their time spent wandering an adorable little book store. Everything about these images just makes me smile.

Howdy, folks, and happy Monday! How was your St. Patrick’s Day weekend? As predicted, mine was a mix of relaxing and productive, which was much needed. As a side note, I swear I’m never going to be done unpacking, but I suppose that’s neither here or there at the moment. So here we are and it’s Monday and I’m serving up a crazy dose of gorgeous, saturated jewel tones. That striking shade of ruby? Paired with blood orange and emerald? Stop it. They are so so pretty it’s like they’re meant to hang out and be best friends. I approve.

I don’t know about you, but I am so happy it’s Friday! I have nothing on my schedule this weekend (unless you count catching up on work and continuing to unpack) and I must say – I’m so excited! Sometimes you just need a couple of days with no plans, Netflix streaming on the tv, and countless boxes that need unpacking and organizing. Next week I’m so excited to be announcing an amazing giveaway in partnership with Keep, sharing details of my trip to New York earlier this week, and you know, just generally bringing the pretty. In the meantime, here are a few Instagram snippets from my week. A brunch hosted by Minted, my favorite morning smoothie and gorgeous new wedding invitations from Fine Day Press. Oh, and a little link love for your weekend. Happy Friday!

Weather pending, over the weekend I am planning to tackle painting the end tables for the living room. I’m pretty excited about it, I have to say! Which, naturally, has me thinking pretty long and hard (ridiculously so if I’m honest) about the other pieces I want to put in the room. A few things I’m certain of – I know I want a boldly patterned navy or cobalt blue rug. And I’m pretty settled on this industrial steel cart to hold the television. And from there, it’s all the fun things like pillows and lamps and little accessories to really bring the room together. I’m definitely going for a mix of color and pattern, pairing more industrial pieces with softer lines and textures to keep it cozy. You know you want those pig bookends, too. Don’t you dare lie to me.
Last night, I asked readers to chime in on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook with what color you think I should paint our end tables! If you haven’t already, I’d love to have you give your input. Pop over to Facebook to see what everyone else is suggesting and to give me your two cents. Right now the leading suggestions are coral and mint (paired with shiny gold hardware) with teal following closely behind. I’d love to have your opinion so don’t be shy! Seriously. I need help here, people. I can’t wait to keep you posted on what I decide!
