A Rustic Farm Dinner with Friends

You guys know by now that I love a good dinner party. Those gatherings of friends, good food and plenty of laughter that are really just about celebrating the every day. That’s what this gorgeous dinner party is all about. Shared by Veronica Lola, this rustic dinner party was a Friendsgiving celebration that Veronica and her husband hosted for their closest friends at their home on a horse farm in suburban New Jersey. I love all the pretty details from the felt acorn place cards to the gorgeous hand lettered menu to the cornucopia of flowers, radishes, artichokes and turnips gracing the table. But what I love most of all? The warm, cozy vibe that Veronica and Paige from Gilded Lily Events created for their closest friends. Don’t miss the gallery for all the pretty details!

Color Palette: Winter Blues + Mist

Hi, friends, and happy Monday! I know you guys love a pretty color palette as much as I do so after a much too long holiday hiatus, it’s back to our weekly dose of color. This past week, things have definitely being looking all levels of blue and gray around here now that the shimmer of the holidays has worn off. We had that blizzard last week and then a weekend of heavy rains that wiped away most of the four feet of snow, leaving a whole bunch of gray ick in its wake. Today’s color palette is an attempt at spinning all of that gray and those winter blues into something pretty. Like the beach in winter. Soft and misty with streaks of pink giving everything the slightest rosy glow. It’s really quite lovely, don’t you think? I have to say, it makes the quiet of winter feel entirely wonderful.

Happy Friday

Hi, guys! I’m cutting out a bit early this week sans the usual link love because I’m currently with my family at the hospital waiting on my grandmother to come out of major surgery. We’re hopeful everything is going really really well, but I haven’t had the internet connectivity I was hoping for and thus rounding up links has proven a touch tricky today. That said, here’s wishing you all a beautiful weekend! I’ll be back on Monday and you can look forward to an extra dose of link love next week to make up for the absence today. Happy Friday! xoxo
