Rose Soiree from Geranium Lake Flowers + Erica Ann Photography

I look forward to what I call 'rosé season' every year. Refreshing and perfect with mostly every summer dish or just by itself as an after-work treat, a big glass of rosé makes me a happy lady. So when Geranium Lake Flowers sent over this beautiful Rosé Soirée, I immediately started planning my very own girls night, grabbing inspiration from these deep pinks, rich reds and those beautiful blooms. And in case you're looking to get the...

Villa Valentina Birthday Tablescape from Signature Event Consulting + Design

When Signature Events Consulting + Design sent over this festive birthday celebration, I immediately decided that my new favorite color combo was green, gold, black + ivory. Although I've loved seeing Pantone's color of the year all over blog land, I have never found the...

Tablescape by Janie Medley and Merriment Events + GET THE LOOK!

I e-met Janie Medley about 6 and a half years ago. She was launching The Bride's Cafe and I was plugging along with Style Me Pretty. And through the 6 years, we've sort of grown up together. Her thriving floral business and blog and her pure, unabashed kindness always taking center stage. And although I can easily call her a friend, until recently we had never met. So...

Summer Entertaining with Jade + Matthew

I probably say this every time a new season rolls around, but Summer is just my favourite. I can't quite put my finger on it, but people do tend to walk a little taller, stress a little less, and throw the most fabulous bashes that ever existed. Styled by Gray Harper Event Maker and captured by Jade + Matthew Take Pictures, this al fresco dinner is overflowing with warm...

Farm to Table from Jessamyn Harris & Alicia K

I've seen a ton of "farm to table" type events in my day, but none have felt quite as fresh and vibrant as this one. Captured by Jessamyn Harris, Alicia and her team did such a beautiful job on this green-themed al fresco dinner party. Plus, it is now my dream to dine under that canopy of grape vines! Have you ever seen anything more beautiful? ...

Urban Sophisticate from Aaron Hartselle + Bess Friday

You heard it here first folks: Aaron Hartselle is an event styling genius. His ability to turn a mediocre space into one that is dripping in the prettiest of pretty that ever existed never fails to both shock and amaze me. Captured by Bess Friday, this gorgeous dinner party is one I am deeply saddened to have missed. ...

Mother’s Day Brunch

This is pretty much the prettiest brunch I've ever set my sights on. And the incredibly talented KT Merry did a fantastic job at capturing it all.  Set amongst the flowering rose bushes in our very own backyard, we put together a simple, elegant Mother's Day brunch for four. A selection of homemade juice, a handful of delicious treats, and those lovely people you call your family are all you really need to make this day shine.

Cinco de Mayo with Matthew Robbins

You can now sleep soundly knowing that the celebration of Mexican heritage and pride won't go unnoticed as long as we have something to say about it. Styled and designed by the crazy talented Matthew Robbins, this colourful Cinco de Mayo dinner party is chalk full of inspiration that simply oozes style and grace. ...

How to Host a Farm to Table Dinner + Recipes

I have this dream of hosting one of those perfectly laid back Farm to Table celebrations that I always drool over on my favorite blogs. Probably because I am the least laid back person I know and this type of get together fits my alter ego to perfection. Just some friends... drinking some wine, eating some amazing food and basking in the candlelight of pretty flowers and memories made. Well, as it turns out, the amazing Nancy Neil...

A Simple Easter Tablescape

It's time for the grand finale – the Easter Brunch. Our inspiration for this tablescape was simple elegance with a farm-to-table vibe. Think easy elements that anyone could pair together for a beautiful background to the yummy food and good company that Easter brings. The table was set with layered neutrals, rustic but feminine pottery and a wire basket centerpiece spilling with Spring flowers. Now add in Easter DIYs (...

Easter Brunch Celebration from Alea Lovely + Julie Blanner

There are two things that never fail to capture my attention: delicious food and bald babies. And this Easter themed brunch just so happens to have both en masse. Bunny shaped cinnamon rolls, fruit filled sugar cones and a casual, yet elegant, tablescape in soft hues is all you need to really make this holiday shine. Designed by Julie Blanner and...

An Easter Picnic from Jessamyn Harris & Monkey Flower Group

Easter has always ranked amongst one of my favourite holidays, if only because it brings with it the Spring season (oh, and chocolate. The chocolate definitely helps). This woodsy picnic contains an abundance of stunning florals from The Monkey Flower Group, adorable, excitable kidlets and an organic inspired table top, designed and photographed by Jessamyn Harris, which...

Industrial Sparkle Party from Aaron Hartselle & Bess Friday

Any dinner party coined "Sparkle Party" is one I definitely don't want to miss. This rings especially true when thrown together by the crazy talent that is Aaron Hartselle & Bess Friday (can you say dynamic duo? I mean really though). Concrete blocks act as planters as crystal chandeliers sparkle above, tables lined with colour-blocked florals and bright pink dip-dyed...

Bridal Shower Brunch by Brandi Welles

One of my very favourite Sunday afternoon activities is to gather around with my lady friends over a fabulous brunch. And when you add a bridal shower to the mix, you can count me in twice. This bright and graphic bridal shower brunch by Brandi Welles, is not only incredibly adorable, it also makes for the perfect way to celebrate a special friend during a memorable time in her life. ...

St. Patrick’s Day Table Top from Sweet August Events & Rachael Hall

When I think of St. Patrick's day celebrations of years gone by, I can assure you that I do not envision an elegant gathering and a picture-perfect tablescape. If I'm being honest, green beer, live music and a post-celebration headache typically comes to mind. So you can only imagine my shock when this stunning St. Patty's day inspired event landed itself in my inbox. With nary a green beer in sight, this series of images, captured by...

Farm to Table Inspiration Shoot from Ryan Ray Photography

I'm a Texas girl. Through and through. And while at dinner with a friend who had recently moved to Texas, I realized that my Texas and the Texas that people might think about when they hear the state mentioned, are two entirely different places. The Texas that I love is made of gorgeous, locally grown food. And perfect sunsets. And al fresco everything. It's warm and inviting and welcoming and this shoot by our great friends -  photographer...

Winter Picnic + Chicken Pot Pies

When I originally set eyes on this fabulous shoot I let out an audible gasp. Beautifully captured by Jen Huang and styled by Poppies and Posies, this gorgeous winter feast has quickly become my new favourite idea. The thought of setting up camp on a mildly-crisp winters day, decked to the nines in cozy sweaters and fur trimmed hats with friends, family and pipping hot food is...

A Matthew Robbins Tablescape

Wedding guru Matthew Robbins is a personal favorite (of ours, of Martha Stewart's, and let's be honest, pretty much every lady on this planet). Which is why we literally squealed when images of a beautiful holiday tablescape from his own home popped in our inbox. While we love the holidays, sometimes you just don't want to deck out your home in jingle bells and tinsel; sometimes, you want something a little different. With this...

Holiday Table by Kate Parker Design + Mark Davidson Photography

It's hard to believe we've reached the last few days before Christmas, but here we are, preparing for a Saturday and Sunday of present wrapping, egg nog sipping and baked goods eating.  Sounds like fabulous few days if you ask me.  So fabulous, in fact, we thought we'd share a little something extra special to put you in the mood for all of the festivities.  A lineup of lovely from the oh-so-wonderful Kate Parker Design and ...
