The Most Perfect Vinyard Wedding

Something old...


Bridesmaids Gifts





Notice the barrels in the background




Simplistic perfection. I love that the vases are all different shapes and sizes.





The perfect cake.

I adore the idea of a signature cocktail. I also love mojitos!

This wedding is the perfect mix of casual and elegant, no detail left untouched, yet still understated.

I have to have this...

I saw this tea towel at my local Anthropologie yesterday. It's very much like my little nugget, Hollywood- so ugly it's cute!

Hello Lovely Fabrics!




I love the way all of these different fabrics are mixed and matched to create an abundance of color and texture in each room. Photos courtesy of HouseBeautiful.com.

The Man House








My boyfriend said that he wants to see some more "rooms/designs with dark, warm, cozy, but masculine colors." Well, here you go, Mister. I present, the Man House. Enjoy!

Don't these rooms look so bright and airy?

Surprise Party Success!









This past weekend my boyfriend's sister and I (with the help of the brothers) threw a surprise party for their mother. It was a success! It was a casual outdoor event, decorated with outdoor lanterns, sunflowers, a white tent and globe string lights. It was the perfect summer party. If I had more time/budget, I would have covered the chairs with linen and bows, but hey, it turned out pretty well. We made two types of sangria, and enough food for a hundred people- mostly apps and easy finger foods. Oh, and cupcakes. Lots and lots of cupcakes!

The two favorite (and easiest) dishes I made were caprese skewers and goat cheese pesto crostada. They looked so pretty too!

It's the peak of Summer and I'm in the mood to host a little get-together. Here's what I'm thinking...








And here's what I'll be wearing. How cute is this top from Anthropologie??
