Bridesmaids in skirts? Absolutely! This is a fabulous trend to have your girls sport on your special day. Mix and match the lengths, colors, patterns... the options are endless! The bridesmaid skirt is the perfect way to add a little creativity and uniqueness to your bridal party - and we love it!
Personalizing your event is a fabulous thing to do, and it can be fun! Signature drinks are a fun way to create something yummy that everyone will love. You can even mix it up and create "his" and "her" drinks, with personalized favorites of the bride and groom. The possibilities are endless, a signature cocktail is one more way to incorporate your fun designs and colors of your event, into something refreshing and delicious for your guests.
Well, being a college student, this time of the year is especially hard. As I sit here "studying" for my exams, I can't help but daydream about a beach breeze and the sounds of waves crashing on the shores with some pineapple or coconut concoction in my hand. This room and deck are perfect examples of where I am relaxing in my daydreams. The use of the sisal rug creates a warm tone that pulls you into the space and the turquoise accents partner with the hue of the water and create a pop of color. A beach wedding doesn't have to be defined by cliche seashells or coconut drink holders (yes I have been there and seen that, it wasn't pretty). It can have a soft and relaxing elegance that you, your groom and of course your guests can enjoy.
I saw this vintage couch on Pinterest and was instantly inspired! Not only by the color but also by the beautiful wood detail. It is such a dramatic piece that is sure to create a bold statement. This "royal purple," as I like to call it, is actually found quite often in nature! So while you're outside playing in the sun, look around and see what colors inspire you. You may be surprised at what you find!
At my house Mother's Day consists of a sunshiny morning brunch with the family. And there's nothing better than a cold mimosa, yummy quiche, and awesome moms! So with Mother's Day coming this Sunday, Soiree has been rounding up all the things we think our fabulous moms would love! Here are a few of our top finds...
1. We are loving this entire line of Philosophy skin care, and we're sure Mom would too!
2. Succulent Wall Planter Kit, because anything involving succulents is bound to be beautiful.
3. Fruit Infuser Water Bottle, perfect gift with that warm weather right around the corner.
4. This set of family glassware is adorable. These awesome illustrations are from Mary and Shelly Klein, find them here!
5. Jar Candle for a fresh springy scent.
How was everyone's weekend? Mine was glorious- the weather was beautiful and I spent much of it either cooking and hanging with the boys or scouting for design inspiration...all in all my favorite kind of weekend! A fun fact for this weekend: May 4th would have been the always classy Audrey Hepburn's 80th birthday. And we continue to love this gal so I thought she would be our inspiring photo of the day. Isn't she just the epitome of what every bride wants to be on her wedding day? Classy, graceful, sophistication..it's the whole package.
Loving this weekend's weather forecast, as well as this Cinco De Mayo fete dreamed up by none other than Matthew Robbins. Such a great twist on the traditional theme and colors of the Mexican holiday. In honor of the festivities, we'll be hanging outside sipping something cold and frosty...maybe granitas (I'm actually not big on margaritas)? Some table side guacamole is in order too. What are your plans for the weekend?
