One trend I’m currently drooling over these days is stripes!!  Thick, bold stripes can make such a statement to any event and really make your tables pop!  Match a bold stripe with bright colorful flowers and it’s sure to be a party!  Linen is such an important element in events and I love bold prints and patterns.  These types of linen can add such a pop of color, texture, and depth to a table and are a decoration of their own!  You can never go wrong with stripes!!

What do you think?!

Nothing says nautical like navy stripes and a pop of fuchsia!!

Pair classic black & white stripes (an ode to Coco Chanel of course) with gold flatware and low lush arrangements and you instantly have an elegant affair!

For a romantic feel use a linen that has vertical stripes running across the width of the table versus horizontal stripes running the length of the table.  This will pull your guests together and make them feel closer and more intimate!  I love this blush imperial stripe!

I know it’s not technically a stripe and these day’s chevron has its own category to itself, but I saw this setting and I fell in love.  This sea blue with the neutral burlap poly linen is perfect for a casual dinner party and a beautiful rehearsal dinner!  Love my chevron!

My big news is so close to being ready to share!!  Hopefully it will be your Friday treat!!  I can’t wait to show you so be sure to keep an eye out for some prettyness coming your way!!



Letterpress Love

Nothing makes me more giddy than beautiful paper.  There is something so wonderful about a gorgeous invitation set with premium paper.  And texture is everything!  Your invitation is the first thing your guests will see and will set the tone for your whole event.  So choosing the perfect design is important, but so is choosing the perfect paper!

Take a look for yourself!


Letterpress adds depth and dimension to a two dimensional product.  Plus the pop of color is always so fun!


Letter press can be simple and clean, or ornate and glamorous!


And nothing says “thank you” better than a beautiful letterpress note!


Needless to say, I have a slight obsession with fine paper!  I love color and dimension and I believe whole heatedly that your paper products will make your event!


Busy Busy Bee!

I sure will be busy these next 8 days!  Tomorrow I leave for High Point, NC [furniture capital of the world] for Furniture Market!  I’m working at the Four Hands showroom during market with my wonderful sister-in-law!

I’ve been to furniture market in Las Vegas and High Point, but only before or after market, never during.  Needless to say I’m suuuper excited to see market in full swing!   It’s not going to be the quiet little High Point I’m used to that’s for sure!

I’m so excited to see how the showroom looks this year!!   Here are some of my favorite pictures from previous markets!

Spring Fever

Feeling a bit of spring fever today with this beautiful weather!  And even though everything is yellow and covered in pollen, I can’t help but drool over these beautiful ceremony sites!!

A beautiful chandelier always puts a smile on my face!  Especially when its hanging from a beautiful old tree.  The perfect mix of comfort meets elegance!


Style Me Pretty



These chandelier’s may be a foreshadowing of my big news coming later this week!!
