We’re up to our eyeballs in all kinds of projects: youngest daughter graduated high school last week Monday and oldest daughter getting married this August.
bought a bunch of pink roses and tulips at grocery
one of her favorite candies is Sour Patch Kids and we had those little plastic cups on hand, instant party favor
cut the flowers and in about 10 minutes had 5 small vases for restaurant dinner
For high school graduation dinner we dined out- not our usual, yet the groom was coming from out of town. He wanted to dine out with our caterer, and Giancarlo’s did a fantastic job. Post coming, as soon as photos are uploaded. When we dine out for special occasions I always like to bring flowers, candy, and votives, it simply sets the scene and personalizes things a bit. We have a love of all white flowers, this graduation Monday there wasn’t a white flower to be found- it was the Monday after the royal wedding and there wasn’t one single white flower at the market. So, we went with pink. And Sour Patch kids. And white votives.
scrappy iPhone photo, it was late, and getting dark, and we we’re getting hungry
style note: resurrected the Valentino rockstuds, and they felt right
She wore a white dress I made for her oldest sisters high school graduation years ago, and she looked great.
House and garden at reception site are in major overhaul mode, there’s nothing like having a party to get your butt in gear for things that have been idle on the wish/to-do list, thank you Caroline and Sean.
before I decorate I pencil out ideas after tracing cookie cutter
at the last minute switched to pink icing details instead of blue
groom is wearing Louboutins for wedding, so pink icing on his soles as a nod
edible gold glitter
I’ve been crazy baking too. Bride, groom, and bouquet cookies, blah blah blah.

last night’s full moon rising, LOVE
Every day dress, arts and crafts all around. xoxo
