I’m dying to share pictures of the wedding, but in the meantime, I thought I’d share a few of the details from our rehearsal dinner. My lovely in-laws hosted a dinner at a waterfront restaurant near our wedding venue, and it was a perfect evening filled with all of my favorite things: fragrant peonies, gold polka-dot details, and lots and lots of nautical anchor motifs! Plus an amazing view out into the shipyards where our tasty dinner was freshly caught! Oh and did I mention the world’s best family and bridal party?
Some of my favorite bloggers are sharing their summer entertaining essentials for being a savvy hostess this season, last but not least in the series is Julie of JulipMade!
Hi DomestiKated Life readers, Julie from Julip Made here sharing with you one of my favorite summer party ideas along with the tools to make it happen. For me there is nothing better than spending a day at the vineyards munching on cheese, sipping on wine, and wiggling your toes in the grass. See below for some ideas to make a vineyard picnic come to life…
I’m filling in for my friend Alison today over on Long Distance Loving — head over and check out all the details behind the outfit interpretation of one of my favorite summer sips!
I think I’m finally finished with all of my Christmas shopping, but there’s always that one gift recipient that I’ll realize has slipped my mind just days before the holiday weekend. So, if you’re like me and need a few last-minute gift ideas, I’ve rounded up 20 festive finds that are on a budget — everything is under $25! The danger of putting these posts together? I’ve already done some shopping for myself: that polka-dot hat is mine!
From top left: pencils, whisk, shoe clips, initial watch, horse bottle opener, tart server, lobster earrings, twirl perfume, polka-dot hat, peace plate, magic wallet, pom-pom mittens, perpetual calendar, nail polish, volupsa candle, coasters, paddywax candle, heart sunglasses, notebooks, red lipstick.
They say you should invest in classic pieces for your wardrobe — advice that also carries through in design. I guess you could say I someday aspire to invest in a piece as classic as a white button-down shirt: the chesterfield sofa. This one featured in the Anthropologie catalog is a picture of perfection.
This weekend I had the pleasure of attending a book signing for Holly Becker’s new book Decorate at the Boston Anthropologie store. It felt like meeting a celebrity when I approached Holly at the event; I had taken her blog class when I first started this site so she was a big influence in my early days of blogging. And my admiration for Holly has only grown after reading this book — it is packed with gorgeous interiors and great design advice.
After the book signing the fun continued when I attended a luncheon with bloggers from around Boston that gathered for the book event. I had a blast talking to all of the amazing bloggers and artists and designers in attendance.
