pucker up

30 Jul

I was driving home the other day and saw sweet young girls selling lemonade on the corner. It brought me back to my childhood when my sisters and I would set-up a makeshift lemonade stand in front of our house in hopes cars would stop and we could add $10 to our piggy banks. For me, lemonade stands represent happiness, youth, optimism and summertime.

Take time to make yourself a glass of lemonade today…or stop by your corner lemonade stand and reminisce on your childhood summers.

Even weddings are not excluded from lemonade stands…how adorable is this wood lemonade stand featured on Wedding Chicks

We LOVE wine barrels {and have some serious wine barrel love when we feature Jodi’s wedding}, so we swooned when we saw a lemonade stand made with wine barrels on Ruffled Blog

So, now that you have lemonade stand inspiration and a DIY tutorial, you might as well spread the lemonade love and throw a lemonade themed party…here are some party tips for you.

Obviously, I would serve lemonade…both pink and regular. Make both and serve in a large pitcher like this one from Pottery Barn.
Next to the pitcher, line up mason jars set with pink and yellow striped paper party straws.
For the adults, serve their mason jars with lemonade cocktails spiked with vodka

Lemons in containers of all kinds – glass jars, hurricanes and galvanized buckets.
A lemonade burlap banner
Glass jars or mason jars filled with change and labeled with a vintage .25 cents sign
Lemons hanging from the ceiling or trees outside; hung with yellow and white twine, of course.
Lemonade and Vodka framed sign on the bar for adults
Single bud vases with a pink peony or yellow daisy, or canned good cans wrapped in a festive yellow and white or yellow and pink decorative paper and ribbon filled with a single {or several} flower buds.
Pink and yellow pinwheels
Signs bought at etsy or diy on wood like Poppies at Play

Lemon, blueberry yogurt loaf by sweet pea’s kitchen {this is yummy, I’ve made it}
Pink lemonade cupcakes using this recipe by real mom kitchen
Pink and yellow striped lemonade flavored hard candy sticks

Picnic style food served in individual packages

Mason jar filled with ingredients for lemonade or lemonade cookies
Bottles filled with pink lemonade and a custom label from I Do It Yourself on Etsy
For the adults, make a lemon gift bag with a recipe and ingredients for a lemon, lavender martini like these from A Subtle Revelry

And, last but not least, you can’t have a party without the perfect invite. So, Jenna at Fleur de Lis, a paperie, has created this adorable invite for you. Click here to order from our etsy shop for $15.

jacey + grant + lovespun films = gorgeous

2 May

You remember the beautiful couple, Jacey + Grant, we featured months ago? We loved that creative engagement photo shoot by Lauren Ross Photography.

Well, the small town Texas girl who pursued her dreams and passion for fashion in LA and the down-to-earth urban developer, got hitched…and their wedding was one for the books.

Everything – from the bride’s Vera Wang dress and Christian Louboutin shoes, to the vintage furniture, chandeliers, mismatched chairs and place settings, burlap, pink and soft garden blooms, framed prints, hand-sewn table numbers, vintage tea tins – and every last detail in between was absolutely breathtaking.

The wedding really captured the couple’s personality and roots beautifully. Seriously, its stunning!

Jessica at Lovespun, Handmade Wedding Films, captured it in a gorgeous wedding film you MUST watch. {Click the play button on the image below}.

I know you want to see more of that wedding, huh?

Take the time to look at images from Jacey and Grants wedding {which was featured on Style Me Pretty}. Your eyes will thank you it’s so pretty. You can find them here, at Jacey’s fabulous Damsel in Dior blog {found at Mrs. Damsel}, along with all the pretty details and full list of vendors.

room for audrey

16 Apr
 Audrey Hepburn, that is!
She embodied {and still does} class, beauty and elegance. Her smile brightened the screen and her beauty is timeless. We three sisters are inspired by Audrey Hepburn and believe all of us women need a little piece of Audrey in our lives…so we can feel fabulous every day too.
Wear PINK or add a splash of PINK to your home.
We are obsessed with BLACK AND WHITE STRIPES. Wear or decorate with BLACK AND WHITE STRIPES.
Wear pearls or decorate with them or Tiffany-blue to celebrate BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S.
We love these Audrey Hepburn finds that add a little bit of fabulous to an existing space…

if this shoe were a room…

2 Mar

I fully admit, I’m obsessed with Houzz. As my girlfriend says, “It’s like my Architectural Digest fix.” Not only can I find beautiful inspiration for my home, but I found products I want to buy and where to buy them. Gotta love that! If you have an ipad, you MUST get the Houzz App. It’s fabulous.

Combine my obsession with Houzz, and Jenna’s obsession with shoes and…If This Shoe Were a Room was born. It just shows that sometimes all you have to do is look down and find your next piece of inspiration on your very own feet.

If this Sperry Top Sider  Montauk Leather Boat Shoe were a room…

…it would be crisp, clean and oh so coastal nautical.

If this DV by Dolce Vita Archer Sandal were a room…

…it would be a cottage-chic pink and light teal bedroom with touches of gold.

If this Tom’s Corbel Classic Slip On were a room…

…it would be a bright and cheerful dining room full of pattern, color and bright light.

If this VC Signature Lene Sandal were a room…

…it would be bold, unique, glamorous and organic.

If this Kate Spade New York Cindy Wedge were a room…

…it would be a posh and fabulous fashion office in New York City {with black and white stripes, of course}.

If this elaborate Christian Louboutin shoe were a room…

…it would be a chic, detailed and shimmery room {in this case, a bathroom…I know, I know a Christian Louboutin should never be compared to a  bathroom, but just bear with me}

be my diy valentine

24 Jan

We are hopeless romantics, and although we believe you shouldn’t tell the people you love that you love them one time a year {you should tell them all the time}, we love a reason to celebrate love and Valentine’s Day gives us a reason!

From DIY crafts to gift ideas, sweets, creative valentine’s for the little ones and parties…this will be your one-stop-shop for Valentine’s Day this year. Even the V-Day haters might get some lovin…

If you have any ideas, throw a fabulous Valentine’s Day party or want to feature your clever Valentine’s Day idea, send it to and we’ll feature it.

This matchbox how-to for ‘the perfect match’ from Ruffled Blog is so adorable for a wedding favor and a great gift with a sweet-smelling candle.

I love this festive Cupcake Liner Wreath, tutorial found at Tatertots and Jello, especially for a sweet holiday like Valentine’s Day.

Kathleen at Twig and Thistle has a lovely downloadable template for brownies packaged in craft paper bags here.

These homemade, individual mailboxes for valentine’s by The Anderson Crew are insanely cute, and the kids are sure to love them.

Transform matchboxes into colorful boxes filled with candy. Directions can be found at Inchmark.

These votives we found at Mint got a face-lift with pretty paper, lace and doilies. Makes for a great diy gift and decor for any party. Directions here.

We also fell in love with Mint’s Succulent Love Garden. So pretty and such a sweet gift or decor for your home for the holiday of love.

I’ve seen people make beautiful handmade centerpieces with just about anything – bark, photos, candles, mason jars and of course vases. Today, we broaden our vase database with these adorable and chic ideas!

Cori Cook Floral Design, a sweet and creative Denver-based floral designer we ADORE, designed some cute DIY vases that would work for any party, especially a bridal shower or baby shower. I can’t wait to do this! Find her tutorial here.

The talented Beverly at Flamingo Toes made some cottage chic single-bud framed vases, and shares her fabulous how-to here.

Add an antique touch to your table setting by using vintage tea tin cans as a vase. I love this look. The tea tins at Pearl River Mart would be perfect for this project.
