lovely bundle {color block}

Definitely a trend of late. Can't say I don't enjoy a large splash of color.

Enjoy your weekend, friends!

a few easter goodies

Two projects from last year that may help with ideas for next week, the Easter Peeps download and an Easter Brunch Party. Anyone already planning out ideas for the holiday?

Happy Wednesday, folks!


pot o'gold rainbow cupcakes

Just a wee bit delayed on this weeks post! Gearing up for this weekends celebration with a pre-party last night, and wanted to go all out with these pretty cupcakes!

These were no small feat, even though I used a box mix. But every once in a while it's worth it to go all out, right? The buttercream frosting even has a layer of gold shimmer (sigh). Deep down I might believe these are too pretty to eat...


lovely bundle {muted color}

Maybe the overcast sky is my inspiration for this post? Either way the subtle colors are stunning if you ask me.

Have a fantastic weekend!

surprise! party invitation

Super late post for your Monday afternoon. FINALLY I can share a little secret that's been in the works. These are the invitations for a birthday party that went down this last weekend. My friend Annie and I basically split down the middle a collaboration of color explosion. It was fantastic and a fun surprise. The invites were inspired by a more complicated version by Jordan of Oh Happy Day (also a free download!). I do love the vellum envelopes of confetti, a cheerful letter to receive alongside junk mail. Hopefully I will get the photos back soon to show off the rest of the party.

See you back tomorrow!


lovely bundle {ombre}

Oh how I love trends. Trends allow you to fall in love with something you didn't know you had affinity for. Ombre is one of those trends—the more you see it, the more you realize you love it. Do you agree?

color styling {red white & blue}

Happy Monday to you!

Continuing last week's theme of ol' glory with a palette for my styling series. Next week will be the final set for the series, which is both a relief and a small bummer. No worries though, I'm sure I'll find other projects to practice styling.

::: here's to a great week for all :::


color styling {yellow & lime}

Another week begins! And I have a few images from my styling series to get you off to a good start. I think I now like lime more than I thought, as its a fun color to "pop". Cheers to a great week, friends!


lovely bundle {colorful birthday}

Today is a special day in my life! 28 years ago today my amazingly incredible husband was born! I am so blessed to have him in my life and wish we were together celebrating. These pretty images will have to suffice as consolation in lieu of a party.

This weekend my mom is visiting (yay!) and we are tackling my front yard. It will be landscaping intensity, which is not my forté. Wishing you all celebratory weekend! What are your long weekend plans?

::: AND be sure to check in Monday because I have a little surprise for you! :::

color styling {black & teal}

Happy Monday!

Had a fun time with my new teal crate/cooler that I picked up at this weekends' flea market. So much fun it is included in half these selected images. I plan to do three more sets of photographs for this styling series. So now I need ideas for inspiration. Any ideas for which colors to highlight next???
