take it outside

The bf and I are always looking for less expensive things to do, and lately we have been quick to open a bottle of wine, put together a small cheese plate and sit on the front porch. Nothing fancy, just the two of us, enjoying the springtime, extended daylight, and the not so hot weather.

in with the mirrors

I came across this post on Style Me Pretty, and love the idea of a new take on party signs. Out with the chalkboards and in with the mirrors.  The writing on this mirror is darling and I love how it serves as the back drop for the cocktail bar. Click-through the images for the full DIY!

the goody bag

bachelorette party goody bag

A few months back I organized a bachelorette party for one of my dearest girlfriends. Since we were doing a small girls night out here in New Orleans, I wanted to bring  something special for all the girls, not to mention a bit of flair for the evening. I got to the restaurant a little early and had all the goody bags on the table settings for when the girls arrived. These heart sunglasses were such a hit!

golden glasses

If you have spent any time with me you know I am quick to purchase anything with golden hues, or to use gold spray paint to change the color. I came across these gold glasses and absolutely love them. How fabulous would these be for a wedding gift or a house-warming present? I have several weddings coming up and these would make the modern bride, oh so happy!

chalkboards and burlap

My sister’s wedding came and went so quickly, and to be honest I’m not so sure where the time has gone since then. I waited to do this post for the professional pictures, but unfortunately the DIY aspect of the signs didn’t come out as I had hope. So my pictures will have to do. We wanted to create signs to put outside of the reception in order to direct guest, as well as, near the photobooth to add a little commentary. We started with a few pieces of per-cut wood, several store-bought black chalkboards and some burlap ribbon. They came out so well, I am already thinking of ways to use them again!

stemless

December is here! Which means pour the bubbly and lets celebrate the year that was and toast to the new one ahead. December is always a very exciting month with lots to celebrate and this year even more so, as one of my very best girlfriends prepares for her late December wedding. With so many upcoming gatherings, I find myself wanting to add a few new champagne glasses to my collection. Not to mention, it’s always nice to have extra glasses on hand. I am currently on the hunt for stemless champagne flutes {perfect for spritzers too}!
