Spring Tablescape Class

Earlier in May, my friend Lisa and I hosted a spring tablescape styling class at West Elm in Grand Rapids. We started the evening going over some basic floral tips and then guided them through the process of designing and arranging a centerpiece. We then educated them on designing and styling a tablescape for a few different occasions. We ended the evening with our floral centerpiece + West Elm vase giveaway. It was both Lisa’s and my first time teaching a class, but we had a lot of fun and we couldn’t have ask for a better group of ladies to spend the evening with. Below are a few pictures from the event.

The Wizard of Oz Manor

A few weeks ago I went to tour the lovely The Wizard of Oz Manor. I was informed by Kim, the event director, that it is believed that the Wizard of Oz was conceived and written here. The manor is located right on Lake Macatawa, with a view just as stunning as the actual home. Inside, it’s like you stepped back in time to old world New England. No really, it is.

In April, I get to direct and design a style shoot here and I am so excited to see everything come together within the space. I am working with some amazing people to create a masculine, New England style shoot with a hint of nautical glamour. Add in one awesome custom designed invitation suite, an amazing seafood menu, sweet treats, gorgeous linens, vintage china, a cigar bar (yes, I said cigar bar), and a lot more pretty details… April can’t get here fast enough.

Galentines Day Brunch

“What’s Galentine’s Day? Oh, it’s only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just kick it breakfast style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus, frittatas!” Leslie Knope

I am a sucker for hearts. And Pink. Every year, right around February, my overall fondness for hearts and the color pink turns into an all out love. It’s rather silly actually. I have to refrain myself from buying everything that has a heart on it or is pink, and don’t even get me started on hearts that are pink. Thankfully, I have a few friends that share this love, so it means that I can shower them in all things pink and hearts (while fulfilling my need to be surrounded by this girly color and non-anatomically correct organ). Hence, my Galentines Day brunch. After all, there’s nothing better than celebrating Valentines Day with your best friends.
