Kelsi’s Bridal Shower

When I first walked into Kelsi’s vintage tea party themed bridal shower I felt like I had walked into every “bride to be’s” dream Pinterest board.  Everything from food, to decor, to party favours were beyond perfection. Not to mention the stunning bride herself! Everything was picture perfect, a photographers dream!

I wish Kelsi and Garrett all the best on their wedding day and in their future together!

Pie Potluck

I’ve been realizing that it’s a bit hard to host a party and still manage to properly document it:(  But then some say that’s when you know it was a good party!  So bear with me…this one was from back in the fall.

Best Potluck theme ever!  Pies, Pies and more Pies.  Savory and sweet pies.  Pie in a jar and gluten-free pies. I already can’t wait for the next one!

You can’t have a pie potluck without some sort of pie eating contest!

Simon the spy turns 6

He finally wore me down. This year Simon, who has become a bit of a bossy pants, finally had his Power Ranger Party.  The party started off with the boys having to attend Power Ranger training camp. Upon completion, they were rewarded with a gold belt, sword and mask.  Ninja sushi and fruit swords kept the rangers powered up for the rest of the afternoon!

This 6 year old kid skips everywhere he goes which never fails to put a smile on my face.  He’s become very crafty when it comes to money and even though he may only earn 25 cents a job, he’s learned to save up.  His idea of a day well spent is playing Minecraft from sunup until sundown. On cold days he often wishes there were a coat for his pants.  Phrases that often come out of his mouth are: “I’ll punch you in the armpit!”, “No mucho blah blah blah”,  and “I’ll have the usual”, which means cheeseburger with extra pickles. And much to my chagrin if he’s not actually farting then he’s probably talking about it.  It always a world of randomness with Simon!

Favorite restaurant – In N Out.  Cheeseburger extra pickles!

Have a seat!

Who doesn’t get excited about autumn?!  Cooler weather, cozy clothes and yummy comfort food shared with friends.  Recently my friend Sarah and I were inspired to get creative and style a fall tablescape…outdoors.  

We started with quince, a fruit randomly grown in my backyard.  By using pieces that we already had on hand, we only had to purchase a few minor elements to complete the table. So for something a little different to feast your eyes upon…
