A Pretty + Chic Bridal Shower

Good morning and happy Monday! I’m going to jump into the week with the prettiest bridal shower that Jane of Blossom Tree Photography shared. All of the pretty details from the invitations to the flowers were lovingly crafted by the bride’s family. I love the mix of jewel-toned flowers and the simple, chic decor of the outdoor pavilion where the shower was held. Petite little favor boxes, a crystal chandelier and a good ol’ toilet paper wedding dress competition and you can’t go wrong.

Friday Link Love

Happy Friday! I am so excited for the weekend to be here. I had a bit of a stressful week with unexpected family issues that popped up so I really can’t wait to kick back at our pool party this weekend. I’ll be mixing up my big batch of sangria tonight and tomorrow it will be all about lawn games and pool floats. We have had the most amazing weather here lately. Hot, sunny and perfect for water lounging. I can’t wait! I hope you have a beautiful weekend full of sunshine and laziness. See you next week! xoxo

I still can’t get enough of s’mores.

Love this fun paper garland.

Inspired by these pretty patterns.

Popsicles + Prosecco = brilliance.

I want to work here.

Yup, officially in love with campfires and s’mores.

Come fall, these will be the perfect pants.

Everything about this wedding is stunning.

My latest blog obsession.

Free printable party invitations.

These look beyond delicious.

Farmhouse Brunch Inspiration

A couple of weeks ago I fell in love with this gorgeous inspiration shoot when it was featured on Style Me Pretty. The pretty farmhouse-inspired details feel so down to earth while showcasing an abundance of countryside beauty. Using the honeybee as muse, sweet bee and honey references are sprinkled throughout the design with cute little jars of honey as favors and honey dippers used as twizzle sticks in cocktails. The overall look is so unfussy yet warm and inviting that I just can’t get enough. See many more gorgeous details on Style Me Pretty.

Cool Finds From Letterbox Co.

I love the cool finds from Letterbox Co. From striped airmail envelopes to stenciled brown bottles and twine, they have a bevvy of wares and vintage finds perfect for crafting up a little nostalgia at your next fête. Personally, I can’t get enough of their cool kraft paper shipping and gift tags, which would also make great little escort cards.
