Love in Bloom

This weekend we celebrated the upcoming wedding of our two friends, Bonnie and Paul, with a lovely cherry blossom themed bridal shower.  My friend Ashley styled the event-I was in charge of drinks this time ;) 

This theme was light and airy with spring blooms and shades of pink.  Perfect for spring and perfect for LOVE.

Enjoy some pics from Saturday....

Adorable cupcakes Nicole made.  She also made the circles-I keep telling her she needs to start selling these!  The "B" was for the bride's soon-to-be last name, and of course more cherry blossoms.

Delicious fruit cups that not only taste great but look so pretty displayed.  Recipe to come in a later post-they are so EASY.

Hope this shower will inspire you to try something new for your next celebration!  This is a great example of how carrying through a color or item can really tie everything together!  This theme would also work well for Mother's Day or a spring party.
  


Nesting Instincts

Hi Everyone! 

So sorry for the long break.  I have a good reason though-I am expecting a baby girl come August!!  I have no other excuse for not blogging besides being totally wrapped up in all things baby!

I have really missed you in the meantime.

I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful Spring.  I have a couple of events coming up I can't wait to share with you.  First is a cherry blossomed themed bridal shower for one of my friends. Then a tea celebrating the arrival of my baby.

Next, is my "Nesting" Baby Shower.  I have been in love with this theme since I started blogging and am so lucky to have friends who have let me be involved in the creative process.  I can't wait to see it all come together.  Here is a sneak peek of my amazing invitations designed by my friend Lena.

We gathered tons of great inspiration from around the web for this shower.  We are going for a Anthropologie-ish feel.  We shopped for grapevine wreaths, nests, bird cages, birds, butterflies, feathers etc.  We took major advantage of all the Easter goodies on sale!
