Hope you all enjoyed your holiday weekend! It was great to take a few days off, recharge, reconnect with family, and just really enjoy life. During my vacation I started thinking about all the gorgeous and amazing places we could go as a family for the weekend. Living in Southern California puts you in the most prime spot for this. First on my list is Big Sur. Ever since driving through about 5 years ago, I have been looking for an excuse to go back. I think Big Sur would make the perfect family weekend getaway. With gorgeous beaches AND Redwood forests at your fingertips, Big Sur is truly magical. There are high-end fancy hotels, rustic cabins, and even campsites, which makes this destination accessible to many. Officially at the top of my wish list…Big Sur here we come!
Ever since Glamping in my parent’s back yard one summer in Park City, I have been forever a Glamping fan. I really want to take a family camping trip, but I am considering starting with some Glamping in the backyard. Here are some tips to create an amazing experience right in your own backyard!
There are tons of really great Glamping locations. However, don’t let the camping aspect fool you, many can be just as expensive as hotels! I definitely dream of visiting one of these luxe locations one of these days. Here is a great resource to check out, once you are ready to graduate from the backyard!
For Piper’s 3rd birthday party we had a purple princess party. One of my favorite parts was the DIY crown bar. Inspired by the ever fabulous Bri of Design Love Fest, and her DIY crown post here, I decided to make a station for guests to decorate their own crowns to wear during the princess party. I followed Bri’s directions pretty closely, and purchased some gold poster board (WARNING it was $5/sheet at Hobby Lobby which yielded 5 crowns). I added to those 5 with some pre-cut silver crowns. Then I bought a huge tub of giant gems for around$10, and adhered some double sided tape to each for easy assembly.
These were so much fun, and a great activity for the kids. They double as a party favor as well!
I received the prettiest bouquet of flowers from a client recently and the colors just really get me inspired. It’s the most magical color palette don’t you think! A little reminder to indulge in gratitude this weekend. Happy Friday my friends! xo
