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.

A Pretty Fall Engagement Session

I’ve always been a sucker for gorgeous fall engagement photos so I just love the sweet simplicity of this engagement session shared by the lovely Kristyn Hogan. There’s something about a beautiful couple, the perfect light, a big pile of leaves and a cozy plaid blanket that does the trick for me. The love that Mary and Josh have for one another comes through in every single image and their shared love for the outdoors makes the location at The Hermitage a perfect choice. I dare you to tell me these photos don’t make you want to cozy up in sweaters and blankets on a crisp fall day.

DIY Washi Tape Flatware

I’m running around from meeting to meeting today so it will be a little later before I have today’s “official” post up, but I just had to pop in to share this amazing DIY idea I just stumbled upon. Planning a party and want to add a little pizzazz to your table top? Why not decorate flatware with colorful washi tape in geometric patterns? Here they use disposable bamboo flatware in a great, vintage-inspired shape. I love how the pop of color adds instant style and excitement. I’ll definitely be trying this out!
