Green Inspiration Board

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I hope you all have some seriously fabulous plans tonight! Unfortunalty, my day is going to be spent at work and running errands to get ready for next week. I will indulge in a bit of Guinness though! (In drink form and cupcake form!) If you’re hungry for a St. Patty’s themed dessert, visit my food site to see my newest recipe on fabulous Guinness Chocolate Stout cupcakes with cream cheese icing! And yes, they are as amazing as they sound! Since the color of today’s holiday is green, I wanted to create an inspiration board full of green details, like a bright table runner, green wedding shoes and a fabulous grass blade ring shot.

I hope you all have a fabulous day! I will see you on Monday because tomorrow is the Blogger’s Day of Silence to pay respect and tribute to Japan. If you haven’t heard, would like to donate or participate, learn all about it here.

Valentine’s Inspired Dress of the Day

Oh hey Valentine’s Day. Nice to see you! Thanks for bringing some warm weather! It’s about damn time! Before I share a perfectly pink Valentine’s inspired dress of the day, I’m sharing a fabulous e-card from Some e Cards. Been there? If you haven’t, you are missing out.

Funny Valentine's Day Ecard: You make me feel like a pudgy, naked, winged child has shot an arrow into my chest cavity.

This card makes me laugh out loud every single time I read it! I hope you are all having a beautiful and loving Valentine’s Day! And if you’re single, I hope you’re having a wonderful day wearing black and spitting on happy couples.

I’m a part of a happy couple but am not super into Valentine’ s Day. Although I’m a sucker for flowers and candy, I don’t usually make a big deal out of it. I’m whipping up some delicious culinary treats for my sweetie tonight, but other than that? Business as usual my friends. I won’t be a Scrooge though, for all of those love birds out there, so take a peek at this GORGEOUS pale pink dress from Claire La Faye.

Much like her other gowns, this is made from soft silk chiffon and has a very light and airy texture. I visualize this gown at  a late spring, early summer garden brunch or at a warm, outdoor wedding.

Thursday Purseday: Spring Flowers

I think the snow gods finally heard me because last night we got some snow! A nice 8 inches, which is enough to give me a bonafied snow day from work! [I’m still working from home, but I’m in my pjs, so I can’t complain!] As much as I love snow, I’m getting eager for spring! I’m craving constant sunshine, sprouts of bright flowers, temperatures above the 30’s and my wedding! There’s something so amazing about stepping outside of your house after a cold winter to beautiful flowers and budding trees! Because I have serious spring fever, I wanted to showcase some handbags with gorgeous pastel and neon colors, fun flowers and soft and silky fabrics! Carrying one of these around would cheer up anyone’s snow blues!

2 Months to Go…

2 months until I’m a BRIDE! [via]

Tuesday kicked off the 2 month countdown to the big day, and boy, am I ready! I’m at the point in my planning where all that’s left are the boring, essential little details I’ve put off. As you remember, I had a bit of a shuttle issue earlier, but I’m happy to report that has been resolved! We found a company that will rent out sprinter vans and charge us ONLY for the hours we need it! A radical concept, I know 🙂 We also found a fabulous limo company that is giving us a wonderful deal to cart the lovely bridal party in style around Charleston to take photos! However, now we must tackle the seating chart, the accommodations and the welcome bags. Not horrible tasks, but daunting ones none the less. So isntead of boring ya’ll with those, I’m showcasing some more decor, venue and look inspiration boards! Oh and keep your eyes peeled, I’m going to be posting pictures of our invites AND venue soon!
