It seems I am seeing more and more of a free spirit bride in weddings these days. I love this look and feel, so honest, true and beautiful. Think flower crowns, flowy dresses and wildflowers.
The lovely ladies at Sissy + Marley sent over the most amazing nursery! Baby Victoria’s nursery has the perfect amount of pink mixed with a gorgeous palette of neutrals and whites, with a touch of whimsy. I am in love!! Photography by Marco Ricca.
Fist of all, that wallpaper is just divine! I am madly in love with the “baby elephant walk” wallpaper by Jill Malek! I mean does it get any cuter?!
Everything from the artwork, to the books, to the doll is perfection don’t you think!?
The ladies of Sissy + Marley have so kindly opened up their little black books to us, so you can create this same look in your own home!!

Great job ladies of Sissy + Marley, once again! Thanks for sharing with us!
At parties, and baby showers especially I really like to offer one signature cocktail giving guests the option of adding alcohol if they like. This keeps things simple, and keeps the guests that don’t drink in mind while still offering a great signature drink for all. For Emily’s baby shower we served a pale pink drink I dubbed “Baby’s blush tonic”. A mixture of pink lemonade, sparkling water and honey with a splash of gin for those that wanted a bit of a kick. The drinks were a huge hit!
We served the drinks in these great bottles, from Specialty Bottles.
The drinks were very simple to make and are absolutely delicous! I hope you enjoy! Cheers.
So excited to be bringing you a behind the scenes look at Emily’s Baby’s shower. One of the best parts of the day was the Loose Leaf Tea Bar. This was a bar overflowing with all different types of teas. Guests were invited to create their own custom tea blend in an adorable animal topped jar. The jars were sourced from Specialty Bottles (a great resource), and then painted & topped with toy animals. I found the tea in bulk from San Francisco Herb Co and they had great prices on the tea strainers in bulk as well. One thing I think guests really enjoyed were the signs next to each tea variety. Each tea was labeled with it’s flavor profile and drinking characteristics!
We used Emily’s mother’s vintage tea pots as vessels for the teas. This was so perfect and gorgeous, but if you don’t have access to these, simple large glass bowls would be pretty as well.
Now here is your list in order to create your own tea bar. This would be so darling for a bridal shower, birthday party, or ladies luncheon.

I am finally sharing my secret Superfood Granola recipe. I gave this granola to close friends and family for the holidays, and ever since they keep asking me for the recipe (or a refill). The thing I love about this granola is that typically store bought granola is filled with sugars and is definitely not as healthy as it may appear. This granola is sweetened by just a little bit of honey and dates. This recipe over on Relishing It is the basis for my recipe. I made some adjustments to make it my own. It’s a bit of work, but once you have it made it will last for weeks and provide you with an almost instant breakfast for the entire family!
I actually make batches of this whenever we travel. That way we have a great healthy breakfast or snack no matter where we are in our travels, and I can feel great about what we are eating on the go!
I hope you all will enjoy this with your families! Happy Mom Monday!
**REMINDER** spots are still available for my next Food to Love workshop right here. Hope to see you there!
