A Donut Themed Wedding Shower

I love this super fun donut themed wedding shower that Elsie of A Beautiful Mess hosted for her brother and his fiancée. I think co-ed showers are so great – why should the bride have all the fun anyway? I love the festive colors and the vibe of this shower. And donuts – who doesn’t love donuts?

A Burst of Sunshine

I stumbled upon the work of Tender Hearts today and it brought a smile to my face. We’re soaking up the last of the gorgeous, summer-like weather here the last couple of days and it has me so happy. There’s just nothing like the last few days of lazy sunshine before summer melts into fall to get me excited about the change of seasons. Sure, a few months from now I’ll be dying for spring, but right now I’m looking forward to crisp air, the crunch of leaves and pumpkin carving. For some reason, the pretty prints and fun hand lettering of Tender Hearts is matching my mood perfectly this afternoon…

Party Palete: Emerald + Charcoal

For today’s color palette I was inspired by this gorgeous shade of emerald green. Paired with shades of jade, charcoal gray and stone, this palette reads modern and chic to me. However, styled the right way it’d be perfect for a cozy, winter wedding don’t you think? As always, there’s a lot more color inspiration where this came from! Check out the complete collection of Party Palettes and get your color on.

Kim + Liz: A Beautiful Fall Wedding in Upstate NY

I first spied Kim and Liz’s gorgeous wedding on the blog of photographer extraordinaire Kelly Stremmel a while back and just had to share it here. First of all, I can never get enough of Kelly’s work. (This is fact.) Second, the gorgeous, harvest-inspired details and the abundance of beautiful fall colors are complete perfection. (Bonus: I love that this wedding was local!) Finally, the love and joy that Kim and Liz share comes shining through in every single image. You just know theirs was a celebration that left everyone in awe of the beauty of love.

Friday Link Love

Hello, friends! Another week come and gone. I swear I say this every week, but the days just seem to fly past me quicker than I can keep track of lately. To say life is a bit of a crazy whirlwind right now would be an understatement. I’m looking forward to a little down time this weekend and a meeting with some awesome clients to discuss their upcoming wedding. There aren’t many things I’d rather do than that! Tonight it’s all about dinner at my favorite local pub and a movie date. How are you celebrating the weekend and the start of fall? Here’s hoping it’s beautiful – see you Monday! xoxo

Such a fun unexpected treat for an upcoming party or just because.

Pretty things in time for fall.

In love with this branding study.

Absolutely must try these.

I’m a sucker for pretty letterpress overprinting.

Why not have a canning party?

I’ve always had a thing for jade.

Maybe the perfect breakfast.
