Yes, we are still bundled in our winter clothes and it seems hard to imagine but spring is on the way. To help usher it in we created a garden tabletop inspired design. March is a great time of year to refresh your house plants. I know I am always wanting to get my hands full of soil around now. So I grabbed some bulb plants, ferns, moss and baby tears and arranged in clear glass and terra cotta. I like the idea of combining centerpieces with finger foods and condiments, making one harmonious tablescape. Simple linen napkins add some refined texture.. I had a garden postcard hanging around so we used it as a table number. Regular seed packets from your local hardware store or garden center would work just as nicely. Oh spring, you can not come soon enough! Enjoy – Denise

Lace is no longer a thing of the past. The beautiful material lends itself to taking on modern forms as well as the delicate. I just love the way that, by being naturally holey, it can take on a sense of depth and create interesting shadows by playing with light. Imagine a beautiful wall of lace (like this fence by Demakersvan) as a backdrop in front of colored lights. The shadows would add so much depth to any experience.
enjoy. with love, Catherine (local social)
Lets start the week off with a nice big punch of color and a sneak peek into the latest issue of Martha Stewart Weddings. This spread is totally modern and graphic, so of COURSE I’m loving it! Stripes really are an easy pattern to incorporate into anything for your wedding….the food, the invitations…even the texture of your dress!

To say I’m kinda obsessed with Chris Benz and his natural ability to mix colors beautifully is an understatement….I’d love to see even ONE of these dresses turned into a wedding color palette.

A carefully selected backdrop can act as a nice statement piece for your wedding photos. These are a collection of some backdrops that I considered for my wedding and some more recent ones that are just too cool for school. This chalkboard backdrop adds a personalized touch with the names of bridal party. The others are rolls of floral wallpaper, fabric, and a specially made white backdrop with scroll frame in the wedding colors.
