Shabby Chic + Light Pink Rose – Spring Wedding Inspiration

Hello lovely ladies!

Today may be just another boring tax day, with lots of black and white, dull and repetitive tasks…… but today is also beautiful day! Or at least beautiful inspiration board day. And that’s the story I’m sticking with.

This week I’m channeling a shabby chic goddess at her spring wedding. Think lots of roses, lots of pink, lots of soft colors and super soft textures. I know you’ve likely been staring at your tax paperwork all night, so let’s just get to the pretty pictures.

Here’s what I’m thinking:

Pastels and Jewels – Girly Birthday Party Ideas

Happy Wednesday!

I hope you celebrated today with a little wine Wednesday action this evening. I did! This week’s inspiration board is actually inspired by Megan Trainor’s video “All About That Bass”. It’s such an adorable color scheme, wouldn’t you agree?

For this week I wanted to do a girly birthday party inspiration board. Sometimes a girl just wants to throw a cute party!

Bird’s Nest Inspired Easter Morning Brunch

Welcome!

Today I have a sweet treat for you: I’ve put together a spring inspiration board, perfect for your Easter brunch. It must have been from all of the time I spent on last week’s speckled egg inspiration board, but I felt like I really needed to share an inspiration board as fresh as the meaning of spring, with pops of color, and perfect for Easter. It was when I saw this adorable bird’s nest cake on Pinterest that I knew I had to go with this theme. I’ve even included it in my inspiration board. Here’s what I had in mind:

Speckled Blue Egg – Spring Engagement Party Ideas

Good Morning!

Today’s inspiration board is spring inspired! I’ll be honest; I had a tough time with this board. Not the concept, no that was easy, I had a hard time narrowing down the TYPE of event. I really wanted to do a “speckled egg” inspired board. But what type of event to choose? My gut tells me it would be an adorable play on the traditional “love birds” engagement party, especially during the spring time. Other runner up ideas included this as a baby shower, bridal shower, luncheon, and a birthday party. Really the sky is the limit!

Here’s what I had in mind for this theme:

I’m from Florida, so I know the deliciousness to be savored when feasting on fresh seafood. I couldn’t resist putting together a scrumptious dinner party menu for this week’s inspiration board. And no party of mine is complete unless there’s wine!

Wood Grain Spring Wedding Ideas

Hello and HAPPY Wednesday! This week’s inspiration board was inspired by the grain in wood. I envision a magical forest wedding, mid-morning with the sun shining. Fabric bunting in beige and light blue decorates the area. The guests and bridal party dance the evening away in a clear tent with scattered tea candles everywhere.

This is what I had in mind:
