hue of the week.

i just recently purchased the essie polish “mint candy apple” and have fallen in love with it. now everything i have been seeing in that tone is catching my eye. it’s really the perfect lightweight transition into fall.

as we are (fingers crossed…) closing on our new home this month – the room i am most excited for is the beautiful office. i have been scouring, hunting, and nitpicking the perfect pieces to furnish this space in. i want it to complete embody my style, since i will hopefully be spending lots of time in there (time = work, right?). i came across this darling clip of a space and love a few elements from it.

i had the privilege last weekend to design and co-host a dear friend’s bridal shower. she went to college in tennessee but now lives in california, so i wanted to bring a little “backyard” back to her. since it was a bridal shower, however, we wanted to keep it classy, girly and of course bright!

invitations custom made by… me 🙂

sun flowers flowed throughout.

bright daisies floated in the pool.

think this turned out fabulously, if i do say so myself! collected old beer bottles, removed most of the labels, tied twine and hung them as vases along the length of the backyard fence.

my favorite daisy cut mason jars made an appearance again!

shower favors were homemade applesauce, a family favorite!

included in the invitation, we asked everyone to fill out the recipe card to share their favorite recipe with the bride.

just a few more shots…

last but not least… wyatt – my little helper of the day!
