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.

Sarah + Dennis: A California Ranch Wedding

There is something so sweet and refreshing about Sarah and Dennis’s wedding shared by the awesome Jennifer Williams. They focused on simple, pretty details in lieu of extravagance, planning a wedding that was a perfect fusion of their personalities and cultures. Sarah was finishing med school and volunteering in Uganda a month before the wedding and as she said, “Everyone should go to Africa before their wedding, it really puts it in perspective.” I love that. While I love a gorgeous party, I’m all about keeping it real and skipping the over-the-top gestures. Sarah wore a gorgeous dress, the flowers were designed by one of her bridesmaids and she incorporated several handmade details like the bird cake topper and her veil. At the end of the day, it was all about the love Dennis and Sarah share and one heck of a rockin’ party.

Party Palette: Retro Camper Rainbow

Rainbow inspired color palettes are very de rigueur of late and I have to admit to being a total rainbow junkie. There is just something so fun and nostalgic about bright rainbow colors and who doesn’t love the excitement of a rainbow after a rain storm? Today’s color palette is inspired by the rainbow with a distinctly retro vibe.

Pretty Handmade Jewelry from The Vamoose

I’m a big fan of gorgeous jewelry and just can’t get enough of the lovely handmade wares from The Vamoose. Pretty pastel beads mixed with stones and brass create really fabulous pieces inspired by nature and vintage finds. I also love the versatility of gorgeous necklaces and bracelets such as these, equally at home paired with a t-shirt and jeans as they would be with your favorite dress.
