This past weekend one of my baking buddies (and overall good friend) got married to his best friend, Levi. They’re the type of people who are honestly friends with everyone, so the wedding was a huge assortment of friends and family from all over the country. It was casual, yet so personal, and Christian was sweet enough to ask me to bake their rehearsal dinner cake.
Nothing says the Fourth of July like a hot day in the sun with a big ‘ole slice of watermelon. It’s one of those fruits that single people don’t really buy unnecessarily because it’s an awful lot of fruit to eat alone. Thus, it has gone in to my unofficial list of “party foods”, or things that somehow seem too outlandish and decadent to buy without an event in mind. Prosciutto, more than one block of cheese, smoked salmon, and any of the flowers that don’t come in the $4 bucket… But don’t you worry, the Fourth of July is here and it’s time to buy all of the things. It’s time for a party, and it’s time for watermelon rosé snow cones! Continue reading “Watermelon Rosé Snow Cones”
So much excitement has been circling around engagements this year, and I could not be loving the party planning and celebrating any more!

For the third post in my engagement party series, I am sharing the recipe and decorating tutorial for these adorable little engagement ring cookies that we made for the party! They are beyond cute for any wedding related activity and were definitely the hit of the party.
Lately it feels like balloons have made a comeback. Like, they were very cool when I was six and everyone got to bring a latex balloon home from a birthday party. After a long hiatus, it seems like balloons have become trendy. I’m pretty much obsessed with the balloon installations from Geronimo Balloons, and one of my fave DIY blogs, Sugar and Cloth, is always using them in shoots. They’re synonymous with celebrating, so why not embrace it? Continue reading “DIY Crepe Paper Vine Balloons”
Happy Monday, y’all! I’m really excited for this week because I’m going to have three posts going up! I shared about how to host a casual engagement party a little over a week ago, but I didn’t share how to make some of the DIY decor and food items, so I wanted to share those over this week.
If you didn’t catch it in some of my Instagram stories, my good friends Megan and Ben got engaged! Seeing as I’ll take any opportunity to throw a party, I offered to get an engagement party together for them right away. Continue reading “How to Throw a Casual Engagement Party”
As it was probably obvious by the name of my blog, I always get really excited about Easter! My apartment is basically decorated for Easter year round (so much bunny artwork), but If I get an excuse to go all out and add pastel colors then I am 100% going to go for it.
