Harvest Dinner Inspiration Shoot

I am so excited this morning to share this gorgeous harvest dinner inspiration shoot from Syracuse’s own Lovewell Celebration Design, Mabyn Ludke and Deserted Attic Vintage Rentals, shot on location at the Lincklaen House in Cazenovia. This shoot takes traditional harvest-inspired decor to the next level of elegance with loads of candlelight and a grand color palette boasting layered shades of red and gold. I’m completely smitten with the gold satin table runner puddling on the ground and the gorgeous patterned wing chairs. The perfect addition is a sweet kids table, loaded with crayons and kraft paper for a little dinnertime entertainment. Thanks so much to my lovely friend Kate of Lovewell Celebration Design for sharing this beautiful shoot – visit The Lovewell Post for DIY details and even more photos!

Brittany + Matt: A Backyard Fall Wedding

There’s just something so pretty about Brittany and Matt’s lovely fall wedding, which was held in her grandparents’ backyard. I’m loving that that they served up deep dish pizza (Matt’s favorite) and sent guests home with homemade honey as favors. A make-your-own soda station and a pleasantly unexpected fall color palette of gray, peach and pink just add to the fun. Many thanks to Cory and Jackie Phillips of Ada Photography for sharing this beautiful celebration!

Loving Black + White

There’s something about the classic pairing of black and white that I’ve been loving lately. It swings easily from traditional to modern, elegant to playful and adds an instant dash of class. As the holidays and winter weddings quickly approach, I’m all about an abundance of timeless black and white details.

Friendsgiving with Baileys: DIY Centerpiece

When I unveiled the first sneak peek of my Baileys Friendsgiving event last week, many of your were loving the centerpiece and table cloth we created. Today, you’re in luck! The incredible Chelsea of Lovely Indeed created a video tutorial showing you exactly how to recreate this look all on your own. Bonus points: it’s super easy and super budget-friendly! Personally I love metallic gold for the holidays because it transitions seamlessly from Thanksgiving through New Years and looks great with whatever color and decor you might already be rockin’ in your house. That said, switch this up however you like and make it your own! Remember, visit the Baileys facebook page for loads of great Friendsgiving party ideas, recipes, tutorials and more. Without further ado, here’s the how-to:

A Riverfront 30th Birthday Celebration

Good morning and happy Monday, friends! I was so excited to have the lovely Jackie Reisenauer of Munster Rose share her recent 30th birthday party and thought it was just the perfect way to jump start the week. Following an exciting year in which Jackie and her husband moved to the Twin Cities, bought a house, launched Jackie’s business, and marked her 30th birthday, Jackie and her family planned a party at her parents’ house on the St. Croix River to celebrate it all. She brought together some of her favorite comrades from the wedding industry to help pull it off. The result? A beautiful party loaded with gorgeous details and heartfelt sentiment.
