I am so very excited to finally share this rustic bridal shower with you. This bride-to-be is basically family as her brothers are not only close friend’s of my husband’s but a brother in law as well making our families very close. Always happy to see her, we share so many holidays and special occasions together. When she became engaged I was ecstatic for the couple and thrilled to be a part of hosting this joyous occasion. This shower was a group effort between the mother of the bride and one of the bridesmaids. This rustic bridal shower was inspired by the style of her wedding with wood, lace, and
This garden party was to celebrate a dear friend turning 30. My co-hosts; her husband and a friend, planned a day of relaxing with pedicures and a movie that ended with this surprise party. We thought it would be a wonderful way to celebrate this expecting mom who loves to garden. I was so glad we were able to surprise her. The party was held in the beautiful garden of my friend and cohost. This made a picturesque setting for an outdoor summer soiree for this lovely lady.

For any of you that have watched Parks and Recs, you may recall the episode about Galentine’s Day being February 13th to celebrate the ladies in your life. Here’s a clip of the show where Leslie describes what Galentine’s Day is all about.
Galentine’s day is the 13th which fell on a Monday this year, so I decided to host a late Galentine’s day Sunday Brunch with a neutral palette of creams and light pinks. The neutral blush decor with brunch would also work great for a bridal shower or baby shower as well. Here’s a break down of all the decorations for this day time get together.
The adventure comes to an end as I share the last of this adorable adventure themed first birthday. The drink table had this beautiful framed art from the Etsy store Artsy Type Shop that really tied the theme together, how like many couples I’m sure, becoming parents has been this couples greatest adventure. This was hung with frame command strips to not damage the walls for this temporary art. Below shows photos if this little

For those of you that have the tasking of hosting this upcoming holiday, I wanted to give you another simple fall tablescape that can easily be put together quickly and pretty inexpensively.
