And we’re back to regularly scheduled programming with some September party DIYS. “Don’t you love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly-sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address.”

Loving this simple way to brighten up party invites.

Wanting to go camping and needing that picnic basket.

Thinking these treat wrappers are adorable.

Needing to throw another baby shower so I have an excuse to make this tablecloth.

Enjoying pink wine.

And the many fun ways to serve bubbly.

Plus this frozen gin + tonic.

Deciding which temporary tattoos to buy (at 50% off!) to celebrate Tattly’s birthday. Wouldn’t they make the cutest party favor?

Moving slowly on the blog this summer but staying busy over here.


FATHER'S DAYIt’s almost dad’s turn to be celebrated. Here’s your Father’s Day party roadmap, which should really be celebrated outside by the pool.

EAT: If your dad is like mine, steak is his meal of choice. If your dad is really like mine, he’ll want to grill it himself.

DRINK: Cold beers displayed neatly.

BAKE: Bourbon pecan pie with chocolate and let’s add some ice cream for good measure.

MAKE: Buckets of candles (citronella preferred) so you can party into the night.

WEAR: A comfy but adorable dress.
