A Lovely Workshop on Utterly Engaged


Remember that time I collaborated with some of the most amazing wedding artists I know at Elizabeth Messina‘s A Lovely Workshop? Well some of the photos are up on Utterly Engaged this week. I can’t tell you how amazing it was to collaborate with calligraphy genius Maybelle on the branding and paper items. Here are a few teaser shots including one of the invitations I designed just for the workshop!

With mother’s day this weekend I thought I would share one of my favorite Mommy sites. In their own words The Glow is “a glimpse into the world of inspiring and fashionable moms.” I really cannot get enough of this site. Not only do they feature fabulous stylish amazing moms & babes through gorgeous photography but their candid comments are so inspiring, funny, and amazing!

Inspired Dinner with Friends


We had the pleasure, recently, of sharing an inspired evening with friends. Our amazing hostess, Nili Stevens greeted us with signature cocktails served in the most amazing vintage glasses. We snacked on gourmet delights including homemade spicy olives that were also gifted to us at the end of the evening. Nili’s home was the perfect setting for a dinner party. Some of the guests included Suzan of Studio Suzan, Braedon of Braedon Photography (who took all of these gorgeous photos) along with Emily and I and our hubby’s.

Nili has this collection of bottles (see Berger Blanc bottle above) that I am completely obsessed with. She brings them back with her when she visits Paris…sigh!

All of the food was made by Nili herself and it was absolutely amazing. Many of the recipes can be found on her blog including this amazing Garbanzo Bean salad, and this to die for Watermelon and Feta salad. We had such an amazing feast!

Here is Emily and I modeling some of Suzan’s brand new pieces. The wine bottle charm and napkin rings are also part of Suzan’s brand new home line, launching soon!! So fabulous!

Thank you so much, Nili, for such an inspiring evening. If you guys haven’t checked out Nili’s blog it’s a must read! And Braedon, thank you for capturing the evening so perfectly with your gorgeous photos.
