Mom Monday {Online Mom Reads}


Now that I am expecting, I find myself really getting back into the online mom communities and chic reads again. Since I have had Piper there are a million new blogs and online magazines. Which is great news, but can also be overwhelming. Here are a few of my favorites for you to check out this week.



Friday Fun


Happy Friday Friends! Today’s inspiration to-go is a fabulous blanket I spotted while we were visiting Lake Placid a few weeks back. Also the pin of the week happens to be my dream come true. You really must check out the full post on Camille styles of this fabulous 40th birthday party. Think glamping with “room service” and personalized pillow cases!! Sigh….


Summer Camp Inspired


Whether for your next soiree, a wedding, or simply from a fashion standpoint, I can’t get enough of the nostalgia of summer camp. I went to sleep away camp as a child so I definitely have a soft spot for this, it brings back so many memories. Here are my inspirations I have gathered for Summer Camp Inspired.


Mom Monday {Piper’s Superhero Party}


I had so much fun planning Piper’s 5th birthday party. It was a welcome departure from the typical frozen/princess theme. I was super surprised actually that she asked for a superhero party, my tutu loving, girly girl, but it turned out so perfect and still so Piper. The color palette we chose together was gold and black. The invitations were gold foil on black heavy card stock and I had a lot of fun with the signage, superhero transformation station anyone?


The transformation station held custom made capes & masks for guests to adorn as they walked in the door. These were a huge hit with the kids! The capes are reversible FYI!!


I created a fun kids table adorned with custom made coloring books for the kids. I scattered little fun toys and confetti along the kraft runner. These fun little gifts along with the capes & masks were a great alternative to a goodie bag filled with candy. I made yogurt pops in a variety of shapes and flavors for a fun sweet treat. These were a huge hit with the kids and adults alike. I will be sharing the recipe shortly…


The hubby and I got into the spirit of things….such a great time. For more fun details on the party check out our feature over on the fabulous Grey Likes Baby!

Real Weddings {Marisa and Ryan}


I absolutely loved this wedding we worked on with Intertwined Events. The mix of floral and gold foil with a vintage monogram was so fun. Here is a peek at some of the things we did for the wedding. Check out the full post on Junebug Weddings!!


4 Must Have Essential Oils


So I must admit I am a complete and total essential oil lover. I had been curious about essential oils for a while but as soon as I started feeling the woes of first (and second) trimester pregnancy I dove in head first. I was willing to try just about anything. But what I found was that the oils were great for the whole family. There is truly an oil remedy for almost anything you can think of!! I use doTerra oils and I absolutely love them. When getting started though it can seem super overwhelming. Here are a few of my go-to favorites to get you started.
