Weekend Party at the Lake House

Sunflower Soiree

Sunflowers and black and white patterns – two of my favorites combine here to make one striking party!  The inspiration for this party came from Carolyne Roehm’s new book, A Passion for Parties.  If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s an absolute must-read!  Fabulous ideas and tons of eye candy.

Trend Alert: Yellow & Black

As I am sure you can tell from my previous posts, I am in love with the color yellow this season!

People tend to shy away from the yellow & black pairing, as to not resemble a bumble bee…..however, this season the combination is nothing short of striking!

I think this color combination could make an excellent inspiration [...]

Swinging from the Chandeliers

There’s nothing like a sophisticated black & white wedding.  You can add a touch of whimsy to this classic palette by popping it with chartruese green.    I love the three dimensional aspects to all of these images – the ruffle on the wedding gown, the frosted petals on the cake – they add a perfect amount [...]
