Friday Link Love

Well hello hello, Friday. TGIF! I am so happy for the weekend to be here. I’ve had a hectic few weeks and I’m looking forward to taking an extra day off on Monday so I can spend some time with my family this weekend. (No worries, I’ll still be blogging on Monday!) We have a doggie play date lined up tomorrow morning with one of my good friends who has a Great Dane puppy so with all three girls together it’s bound to be fun. I hope you have a great weekend! See you on Monday, friends! xoxo

Love this! Surfer inspired = right up my alley.

Stunning color inspiration.

A Super Chic Beach Wedding

I thought I’d end the week with something really pretty to kick off the weekend with this stunning beach wedding. Natasha and John were married overlooking the ocean in Malibu and sprinkled their celebration with elegant, personalized details. Shared by the incredible Jillian Bisinger, these images are completely romantic and really just make my day. I love the berry inspired color palette and the gorgeous flowers. Natasha truly left no detail to chance.

I love the sleek, modern vibe of the reception and the fabric-draped ceilings are killer. For a dash of personality, Natsha and John (big Nintendo Wii junkies) had their cake topper custom made to resemble their Mii characters. So cute!

Huge thanks to Jill for sharing Natasha and John’s beautiful wedding! I just can’t get enough.

DIY Paper Pinwheels

The incredibly sweet Jessica of In the Hushed Hours was kind enough to share this tutorial for DIY paper pinwheels. I love pinwheels. Pinwheels strung on a mobile? I might love those even more. Thanks for sharing, Jessica!

String your paper pinwheels from an embroidery hoop to make your own mobile perfect for a bedroom or for a party. Love!

Cupcake Fondue

I love this fun idea from Amanda of Bake It Pretty – cupcake fondue! Really, what could be better than dipping mini cupcakes in frosting and topping them with a rainbow of sprinkles and pretty sugars? I am thinking about nothing. This would be a fun idea for a kids party or for a party of kids at heart. Get the recipe and the how-to at Pintsize Social.

A Picnic Inspired First Birthday Party

This colorful first birthday party was inspired by sunny spring picnics. Never mind that little Addie’s birthday falls in the cold of winter, mom Miranda spread blankets on the floor and served sandwiches, lemonade, cobbler in jars and chocolate cake. DIY party decorations crafted from colorful papers, paper doilies and cupcake liners gave the party a little handmade cheer and kept things budget-friendly. The fabric bunting adorned invitations might be my favorite part!

Thank you so much for sharing, Miranda!
