Life Lately: Baby Shower


Happy Thursday, friends. As I've mentioned, last weekend I hosted a baby shower brunch at my house for one of my friends who is about to welcome a new baby boy into her family. So many people are having boys right now! I wanted to pop in today and share some photos that I snapped on Saturday as the shower was getting started. We had the most delicious menu, the decorations turned out perfectly, and fresh flowers were the perfect finishing touch.

The paper lanterns, tassel garland, and DIY bunting banner were all purchased at Target. I tried to find the products online but had no luck. They were all purchased recently so I'm sure they're still in store. I attached the cluster of tissue poms and paper lanterns to the blades of my ceiling fan using Scotch tape - I love the way they look! I used an assortment of mason jars and long-neck bottles for the flower arrangements - tulips, hyacinth and alstromeria made a perfect combination. I sent these invitations from TinyPrints and worked around that color scheme of various blues and touches of green. I hope you enjoy the photos!










(Try adding fresh mint to your flower arrangements for a little added fragrance.)

What I Loved: FEBRUARY


What I Loved: February

Well, February came and went in a flash, and I spent half of the month holed up in my house with six inches of snow on the ground. Please raise your hand if you're ready for spring. Yep, I see you. This past weekend was just what I needed to get out of my winter rut. I got to spend three days with this little cutie and host a shower for one of my friends. There's nothing I love more than when all of us are together. Above are a few things that I loved from last month - notice the "warmer weather" theme!

one // This dress is identical to this floral one from last summer! Can't wait for it to get here! (ASOS)

two // A quick snap I took over the weekend - tulips and hyacinth are such a great combo. Also, try adding fresh mint to your arrangements - such a fun detail.

three // This tote is everything I've ever wanted. I snatched up the mint at 30% off over the weekend, but it was marked down yesterday to $29! Go get it! (OLD NAVY)

four // I'm all about some delicious baubles - pop of pink, anyone? (J. CREW)

five // I can't wait to share a full post with photos of the shower I hosted! Come this week!

six // Wishing for panama hat season. . . (TARGET)

seven // I've officially never met a tassel I didn't like. (J. CREW)

Weekend Wishes

Happy weekend, friends! So, I'm thinking we're about to get a break from this freezing weather, right? I just need a few days to get back in my routine. Seriously, after two weeks of being a stay-at-home puppy mama, I'm ready to get back in the flow. This weekend some of my dearest friends are coming into town for a baby shower that I'm hosting at my house. As you can tell from the picture above we're celebrating the arrival of a sweet baby boy, and I cannot wait to share all the details next week. My townhouse is the happiest place on earth right now - tissue poms hanging from my ceiling fan (heart-eye emoji here)! I just wanted to pop in and say "happy weekend" and share a few links for you to browse over the next couple of days! Sending you lots of love and warm weekend wishes! xo

one. This week I shared my dream for 2015 over at So About What I Said. It's a personal one - I hope you'll pop over and visit Melissa!

two. Loren Hope is one of my favorite jewelry designers. She has a ton of gorgeous, handcrafted pieces on sale right now! This makes me drool.

three. J. Crew just stepped up their tassel game.

four. Go here, enter your birthday, and it will magically generate the number one song on the charts for that day. Isn't that cool?!

five. I simply couldn't narrow it down to ten - take a look back at my Oscar's top eleven!

seven. The other night I was watching Friends on Netflix and this happened.

eight. With guests coming this weekend, I did a little sprucing up to my guest bathroom. Love how it turned out!

nine. Lady Gaga performing The Sound of Music just about made my heart burst.
