Valentine’s Day Decor

So I’m well aware that Valentine’s Day is over BUT I had to share with you all some of the pictures from my Valentine’s Party.

I used the cutest Love Sweet Love printables from The Sweetest Occasion.  Love the cupcake toppers and Love Sweet Love sign 🙂

I also printed out a little heart banner and straw flags from The Sweetest Occasion.

I added a little glitter to mine and used red baker’s twine to tie up the hearts.

Love these!

And last but not least, my little Valentine’s tree with the cutest heart ornaments from JoyAnna.

Time to put away the Valentine’s Day decor and get ready for Easter!



Montage, Laguna Beach

Hello all!  I meant to post this one yesterday but time got away from me! 

On Monday I went with some friends to the beautiful Montage Resort in Laguna Beach and what a fun day!  We started off at Mosaic Bar & Grille overlooking the ocean and Montage’s herb garden (so cute!), then made our way down to the beach for a mini photo shoot.

Beach weddings are the best!  I wish I was back at the Montage right now 🙂

Have a great day!




Oh so “”

Hello everyone!  How is your week going so far?  I’m definitely not complaining as it was another short week for me and I’m heading into a 4 day weekend 🙂

I wanted to share with you one of my new (well, new to me but it’s been around for awhile) favorite sites! allows you to have all your wedding inspriations in one spot, and place them in “bundles” or categories.  The site is super fun, easy to use, and packed with all sorts of wedding gorgeousness!  The hours this bride to be can spend on this site are crazy, why don’t you join me?

Here’s how the site looks with just a few of the bundles I’ve made so far.  Many more to come I promise you that!

It’s so easy to set up an account and share all your ideas and inspirations. 

Oh and on a side note, if you ever have any problems or issues with the site, the team over at is very quick in responding back to your questions.  I was having trouble logging into my account and they got back to me super fast with a solution!  So head on over and check it out, you won’t be disappointed 🙂




Happy Valentine’s Day!

Well, the day is finally upon us and I wanted to wish all of you a very Happy and fun Valentine’s Day with loved ones and friends.  I’m hoping to be able to upload the pictures of my Valentine sweet table I made over the weekend later this week.  Until then, here’s a little “Red Valentine” Inspiration board I made especially for today.

Valentine Burlap Banner

Is everyone almost ready for Valentine’s Day?  I love all the decorating and DIY projects this time of year.  One fun element I’m loving is Valentine banners and boy do I have a cute one for you!  In fact, this banner is the one I bought for our engagement session/wedding day decor.  The pictures don’t even do it justice, it’s the cutest thing ever!  Brandy from baybeedahlboutique makes the burlap banners, and you can check out her shop here.  There’s all kinds of different designs she sells, all of them unique and oh so cute 🙂
