Mint of my eye

I’m kind of really digging this kitchen at the moment. The cool color palate of mint and white has a great balance with the harsh chrome fixtures and rustic brick. To add a little more whimsy to the space here are some of my favorite little items found around web. Click to view 1, 2, 3

 

Everyday Glitter

Have you check out the new Glitter Guide? It is a fun new site with daily tips on how to sparkle! Last week they featured How Sweet Eats out of the box fondue idea.

CUPCAKES!!!

Such a great idea for a girls night. Maybe paired with some bubbly? Check both sites out. You will not be disappointing.

Windows to the ceiling

I simply had to share this amazing interior with you. Natural light flooding in. You almost miss the random array of furniture because your eyes float towards the ceiling.

Bandanna attack

I love planning details for parties! The real challenge of a big holiday is not to go over the top with matching the decor. It needs to give the vibe without hitting you over the head. That’s why I am loving this bandanna inspired table setting. It so reminds me of classic Americana  as does the gingham cupcake liners. Subtle but patriotic at the same time. The metallic star plates are just to fun to pass up! What do you like to focus on when you are party planning?

Give me S’more!

With a fun-filled weekend quickly approaching I’m cleaning out my grill and stocking up on staples: graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows. Yes, it is s’more season!

Get creative with some red and blue bowls and have everything set out nicely when guests are ready to get their fingers sticky. I love the use of the old wash tub and some untraditional add-ons.

Isn’t this marshmallow tree super cute? Click image for more fun fire skewers.

OR… if you love the taste but the whole open fire isn’t with the vibe of your party opt for these pops with cracker crumbs from Gimme Some Oven! (click image for directions) So chic!
