coffee date

I had coffee yesterday with the wonderful and incredibly talented Catie Joyce from Kristel Closets. If you need help with your wardrobe, could use a fashion jolt, or want to revamp your closet, get in touch with Catie. Don't be shy... it will be worth it in the end! Perfect for mother-of-the-bride or groom!

Above is a cute outfit from Anthropologie that I love. Makes me want to go to sight-seeing in Paris and drink le chocolat chaud in a large mug!

lovely item of the week

The lovely item this week is aqua baker's twine! I was so excited to find this in my mailbox and can't wait to use it. It is eco-friendly, 100% cotton, and bio-degradable. It comes in 5 different colors: orange, green, aqua, yellow, and black. Great for lots of projects! You can order it here.

draped fabric

The inspiration from this fantasy decor might be the Garden of Eden. The draping fabrics, green plants, and white linens are a great combination originally found here.

Provence Catering partnered with the knot and Pronovias in the fall to have a get together for brides in the New York area. Above is a photo of our delicious cupcakes and other desserts.

The flagship Pronovias store is beautiful with large open windows, an exclusive staircase, and five floors of dresses. Each bride received one of the goodie bags filled with ideas, coupons, and perfume.

Gorgeous dresses sparkled from the front window.

Provence Catering served incredible sushi that flew off this platter!

The Pronovias runway was accompanied by fragrant hydrangeas.

Astounding flowers were sprinkled in different areas on each floor.

Fell in love with this Pronovias dress!

I found a couple beautiful invites too. I'm a magnet to pretty paper! Newly engaged brides (congrats!) should join the knot for great ideas, cool events, and helpful to-do lists!
