the BIG three O bash

Monday, August 30, 2010

Sorry for my spotty postings lately. It has been crazy over here. I head out to China tonight and will be gone for 2 weeks. I will try to post my favorite finds... since the internet connection is not the greatest, I can't promise anything.
Here is the pictures from my BIG three O bash! It was a blast...

floating flower centerpiece

Thursday, August 19, 2010

When I saw these pictures I literally gasped. I thought how beautiful. Then my mind started racing and asking "how did they do that?!" Floating floral arrangement... individually suspended clear floral tubes floating above with a single white ranunculus hanging from clear fishing wire.

lemonade stand

Wednesday, August 18, 2010

As the days of summer are coming to a close on us I will miss these sweet additions to the neighborhood curbs. I would love to throw a lemonade stand party. How fun with that be! Each station would have a different "lemonade stand" feeling to them.  I found great inspiration and ideas for any wedding or shower also! I would have to make a couple batches of these adorable pink lemonade cupcakes tho!!! Aren't they to die for. I LOVE them. I love everything about them- the colors, the bent straw... everything is fabulous! I just want to slurp up the cupcake right through the straw. You can get the recipe here.

Ironies purple and pearl interior

Wednesday, August 4, 2010

Its been a while since I have shared some interiors. I saw these photos of the Ironies San Francisco Designer Showroom from Alice Lane and I cannot stop thinking about them. They are flawlessly designed down to the smallest detail. That is Ironies for you. I have worked with them in the past and they have the most beautiful furniture... I covet so many items form them, especially the mother of pearl pieces (including this headboard).

DIY bookmark

Tuesday, August 3, 2010

I just have to share this tutorial from Just Another Day in Paradise. I instantly fell in love with these bookmarks! I am currently designing a few myself right now... I'll show you my creations in a couple days. This is such a simple project that you can complete in a half hour. I love things that I feel I can actually complete in one sitting.
