Christmas Cookie Decorating Party

I know TECHNICALLY Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and I should probably do one last “fall” inspired inspiration board. But you know what? I don’t feel like it. I’m ready to dive into Christmas! That and I am not a huge fan of autumn (mostly out of never having experienced it) and today is an abnormally cold day for us here in Florida. And by cold I mean it’s 65 out. That’s cold for us, don’t be jealous!

Now that we are past that, and we have both come to terms that it’s pretty much been all about Christmas in the US since, November 1 (you know it has!), what better way to REALLY dive into the season then by decorating cookies? Cookies + Sprinkles + Eggnog = a good time. Add some friends, some Christmas classics on the radio and you will be having a great time.

This would also be a fun theme for a kid’s birthday party that happens to fall close to the holidays. I know if my birthday was around this time of the year I’d want to do this with all my friends. Though, I also think a snowman building party would be a blast too.

Let’s get to it, here’s what I’m thinking:

Beads and Lace – A Glamorous Vintage Wedding Inspiration Board

I don’t know what it is, but I am totally in such a vintage mode lately! This week I just kept feeling like I need to do an inspiration board that was for the classy couple that loves that refined, vintage vibe. For this week’s inspiration board, I’m focusing on ornate beading, with light floral and lace accents, and a neutral but sophisticated color palette. Here’s what I had in mind:

Art Deco {Scalloped} Inspired Wedding

Happy Wednesday and welcome back!

Today’s inspiration board is so much fun. It’s a wedding idea board for the couple that wants timeless classic, with a hint of the fabulous Gatsby flair. Inspired by the Art Deco era, I’ve put together this wedding idea board focusing on bright gold and white, with scallop accents. Naturally, I’m drawn to black as a bold accent color, but a mint green, rich cobalt blue or any other color you’d want to incorporate for a pop of color would work too.

The whole idea of this Art Deco inspired wedding actually came to me because I found out that today is World Architecture Day. Now, I’m no architecture buff or anything, but one of my absolute favorite styles of design is Art Deco. I just couldn’t resist all of the beautiful inspiration!

Here’s what I had in mind for this Art Deco inspired wedding:

Apple Themed Fall Dinner Party

I had so much fun creating last week’s pumpkin inspired dinner party, I created another fabulous dinner party idea board for this week – but themed around apples! I was channeling a cool fall night, some close friends over….and thought about what would I want to have. I knew good food was a must (and these recipes have rave reviews!) with simple but pretty apple elements. Here’s what I had in mind:

If you had to choose only one to enjoy during Autumn, which would it be: Apple or Pumpkin?
