Friday Favorites!

First of all, if you're not familiar with Oh Joy! you really should be. I've been obsessing over her for awhile and, just this week her product line with Target launched! (Check it out here.)

Now, don't get me wrong, like most red blooded American women I can't walk into Target without buying a least a half a dozen things that I don't need, but the new Oh Joy! collection makes me want to splurge even MORE than usual! I thought I'd just share a few of my favs.
1 // 2 // 3 // 4 

And the best part of it all is how reasonably priced it is! As soon as the line launched I checked it out online and KNEW I had to have that coral ice bucket. I went to my local Target and it was nowhere to by be found! :( And then it happened! I found one on some random isle of the store, like someone had it in their cart and realized they didn't really need it and just set it down (my friend Danica is NOTORIOUS for that). I was so excited! (Not gunna lie, I'm probably going to end up getting the confetti, the water bottle and the cake stand too, but the ice bucket was a MUST.) I've been in the process of looking for a new bar set up and will definitely be using my new Oh Joy! ice bucket as my inspiration!

Happy Friday!

Wedding Wednesday: Color Inspiration


I have officially turned into one of those girls who spends most of the time talking about her wedding. And the rare times when I'm not talking about it, I'm generally thinking about it.

I'm the epitome of a party planner. I love to throw a party (generally with a theme) for any and all occasions, complete with a photo backdrop, a banner of some sort and usually with a themed cocktail as well. A wedding is like the ultimate party so I'm having so much fun planning it. I figured I'd share a little of what's been being tossed around in my brain.

The wedding colors are:
(which you can see in this post about the bridesmaid box that I made for all my girls)
I've become so obsessed with the color palette I've even tweaked the colors of my blog to reflect them!

We are going to be getting married at a gorgeous private estate with a breathtaking view of the San Jacinto mountains. 

I don't want to take away from the natural beauty of the venue so I'm trying to stick to a very soft, muted color palette. Here's a look at the venue:
(Reza from Shah's of Sunset apparently had his 40th Birthday Bash here.)

Thanks to pinterest I have a plethora of wonderful ideas of how I can incorporate my crafty side in as many ways as possible. I really want for people to walk in and see me in the little details. Poor Sam doesn't really have much of an opinion or a say in anything but, so far, that's how he has liked it. He says as long as he gets to go to the cake tasting and as long as I show up, he's happy, which is fine by me! Haha. 

As I said, I have lots of fun wedding ideas and projects planned, I can't wait to share them all!
