Mommy’s day is coming. Have you sent her a card? I’ll wait while you run to the mailbox. Then let’s get the family together to celebrate. Here’s your Mother’s Day dinner party roadmap (but be sure to personalize it to your mama’s favorites).
EAT: Spicy parmesan shrimp pasta equals all the things my mother truly loves in life (minus me).
DRINK: White wine sangria because why not?
BAKE: Nutella is my mom’s favorite and this salted Nutella buttercream cake looks amazing.
MAKE: Pop some typography mom toppers on said cake.
WEAR: Love these floral print pants which could be dressed up or down.
I’m working on a blue and white project so I’ve got this color pallet on the brain. It’s so crisp and classic. Perfect for this time of year.

If you’ve been to or in a wedding (or seen the movie 27 Dresses), you know there are a lot of different directions the bridal party’s attire can go. Let’s talk bridesmaid dresses and 2014 trends.
Selecting a color and designer while allowing your maids to pick a dress style is a good way to please your people. Neutrals are big as are navy, jewel tones, pink, bright hues and mixing a color tone for an ombre effect.
Cohesion is nice, but whether that translates to dresses that match the theme, color pallet, venue or time of year is up to you. Mix and match colors, patterns, styles, textures or don’t. Above all else, aim to pick dresses you’re excited about and your bridal party is comfortable wearing.
