LilaFrances Baby Hangers

One of my favorite shops on Etsy, LilaFrances, specializes in customized wire hangers for just about any ocassion.  They made my wedding hanger and it came out perfectly for the wedding day.  They also make smaller hangers for babies, and I ordered a customized hanger for my soon-to-be nephew, Noah.

I love how it turned out, isn’t it the cutest?  It’s such a great keepsake to have as well!  You can check out all the goods from Anna’s shop LilaFrances here.  I’ll be taking the hanger back east to Maryland with me next week :)

Have a fabulous day!

My Sister + Baby Noah’s Baby Shower

Good morning friends!  My mom, little sister, and I threw my sister Amanda a baby shower last weekend; everything came out super cute and we all had a great time celebrating the soon to be mother and new baby.  I wanted to share with you a few photos from that day.

My friend and I made this Baby Noah banner with her cricut machine and I just loved the way it came out.  Hopefully my sister will be able to hang it up in his nursery.

Peony Season, Yes Please!

Good morning!  I hope everyone had a great weekend.  Peony season is upon us and I couldn’t be more excited!  My hubby picked some up for me this weekend at good old Trader Joe’s and they are beautiful!  I’m pretty sure I’ll be making a stop this week for some more… if only they could last forever :)

Favorite Things: Ruche Macaron Trinket Boxes

Good morning!  I hope everyone is having a great week so far, we’re half way through! 

I found the cutest little trinket boxes over on Ruche, an online vintage inspired boutique.  Who doesn’t love a good macaron?  I love these little boxes for bridesmaid gifts, drop a pretty little necklace or ring in there and you have the perfect gift.

They come in pretty pastel colors, my favorite being the purple shade of Jasmine.  Unfortunately, at this time, they’re all sold out, but you can set up an email alert to be notified when they are available for purchase.  You know I was all over that ;)

Have a fabulous day!
