I recently hosted a summer wedding shower for a close friend. The event drew inspiration from the bride’s love of soft blush tones, her romantic style and the smallest hint of edgy black for good measure. And, since she’s a writer, I couldn’t resist throwing in some typographic touches. Check it out for all the details, along with a simple guide for creating your own.9 COMMENTS

I have always been a huge fan of the imagination. As a child I often times would be found chatting away to my imaginary friend while playing dolls and having tea parties. There is something just so special about children and their imaginations. Now that I am a mom I so want to encourage my children to use their special imaginations on a daily basis and to live in their own sweet little worlds.
With warm weather here to stay, we are finding ourselves coming up with any excuse to dine al fresco with our friends. The perfect addition to any space? A string or three of globe lights to illuminate your space as you reach for that second glass of wine at sunset. I found some of my favorite outdoor dining spaces that show off this beautifully practical accessory, just in time for these warm spring nights.

Every year around this time it is a tradition in our family to host a fondue party. My husband and I enjoy celebrating the holidays with friends and family and there is something so warm and intimate about celebrating over a steaming pot of melted cheese, not to mention it tastes so good!

Here’s a recipe we love, supplies, and ideas for accessories to make your fondue party a success…
