Ever since I had my son, I have to admit that I have been very neglectful of my sweet furry friend Dixie. She has been my love for the last 8 years...its crazy how a baby can push your pet so quickly to the back seat. I thought for sure I would still have time to give her love and attention, but she is lucky if she even gets a hello from me these days. Thank goodness for my sweet husband who takes great care of her every single day! If I were able to juggle motherhood and being an awesome pet owner, I would for sure be hosting a party like this one I saw on Style Me Pretty Living for Dixie...
Pink peonies...jumbo balloons...streamers...gold crowns...now this is my kind of party! This sweet tablescape was featured on 100 Layer Cake-let, but despite it being planned for a little girl's birthday, I think I would be quite content with being the guest of honor!
I'm always looking for creative cake toppers or banners to add a special touch to cakes. I LOVE this idea with macaroons, especially since its one I haven't seen a million times. Just use a little edible ink to write a personal message and voila, you have a fabulous and delicious cake topper. To check out more on this cake topper, head on over to Cupcakes and Cutlery for all the details!
I wish I could click my heels three times, open my eyes and find myself magically sitting at this gorgeous tablescape. I love the idea of a floral table runner instead of a massive floral centerpiece. I always hate it when I can't see the person across the table from me because the flowers are in the way! This alternative makes a statement without dominating the setting.
Happy Fourth! I hope you are enjoying this holiday wherever you are this year, and most importantly are thankful (as I am) for the freedom we have in this great country. That is definitely something to celebrate!!
Today is my sweet sister's birthday, so in honor of her and July 4th, I thought I would post a fun cocktail. I mean, who has a birthday without a sipping on a special drink??? The weather has been so warm this week that I decided a refreshingly cool drink was in order. Hop on over to Pretty Plain Janes to get the recipe for this Red, White and Blue Wine Spritzer!
Today, I thought I would share with you the patriotic tablescape I styled for Celebrate Magazine. This is one photo shoot I will never forget! As you can see we were outside, and on my way to the location the day of the shoot it was pouring down rain. Not what you want to happen when you NEED to be outdoors. Luckily, the rain stopped and we were able to get set up, BUT then it decided to rain AGAIN. The crew on set helped me move the table underneath an awning and we were able to get some tight detail shots until the rain stopped. This happened at least twice during our shoot, and then the final time we were out in the yard, the sprinklers came on!! It was an insane day. HOT, HUMID and WET. Despite the weather, I think the photos came out great!
