With spring here, we are getting so many delicious things in our CSA basket. Here is a salad I whipped up for a party we had this weekend. It was a huge hit with parents and kids alike. Even with the parents that shall we say don’t normally go for the quinoa! Enjoy!
PS. if you have kids that are not huge fans of salad, try calling them bowls instead.
The simple beauty of a sweet dandelion flower evokes memories of childhood, and the joy of making a wish with one of these. Happy Friday friends!
Love the idea of creating something unique to serve as the backdrop for your wedding. Here are a few of my favorite inspirations. What ideas are you guys liking for this?

I am sort of obsessed with these ever since I made them a few weeks ago. The beauty, they keep in the fridge for a while (I had mine for 1 1/2 weeks). They satisfy that sweet tooth I get in the afternoon, and they are pretty darn healthy! Perfect for kids and adults alike. Let me know what you think!

There are so many simple, free yet super fun things to do with the kids. Here are a few of my favorites. Think easy, local, and sometimes those simple pleasures turn out to be some of the most memorable family experiences.
Look into local trails near your house. It doesn’t have to be intense, start simple and see how your family handles easy short hikes first.
Visit the playgrounds in your area.
Pack a lunch and take it to a local park. Find a nice shady secluded spot under a tree, and voila, a magical afternoon.
Now this may seem like the most obvious, but I have to say, it’s one of Piper’s favorite activities. Swim suit ready, Daddy sprays the hose in a sprinkler fashion, and she frolics in the water. Pure joy, as you can see from the photos above. I would love to hear what your go to activities are with your family? Share them in the comments below.
Emily and I attended a dear friends baby shower yesterday and the place settings were just too darling!! Happy Weekend my friends.
I am beyond excited to share with you some of the gorgeous photos Aaron Delesie captured of what we created for John and Chrissy, featured on the cover of Martha Stewart Weddings!! We had so much fun working with the amazing Lisa Vorce on this project.
The invitations featured hand calligraphy that was letterpressed on hand torn paper, wrapped in Japanese rice paper and sealed with a custom wax seal. We also created a hand sewn leather paper weekend itinerary book with vintage maps and so many fun details. The guests were met with Prosecco arriving in a custom screen printed linen bag, and a box of goodies wrapped sealed again with the custom wax seal. Sachets were screen printed with the couple’s crest we designed for a recessional rose petal toss.
This is one of my favorite weddings we did last year. There were so many fabulous details and of course the dream team behind the festivities was AMAZING! Photography: Aaron Delesie // Event design and production: Lisa Vorce Co. // Floral and event design: Mindy Rice
