1. Beach Bachelorette Party with Guest Blogger Love Always, Audrey



    My darling friend from high school, Danielle, is getting hitched this December! We decided to throw her a Beach Bachelorette Party over the summer, when we could enjoy the sunshine (not that California is lacking it…), and all the fun accessories that come with the season.

    We got the party started at the house, where we decorated for drinks and snacks, and gave all the ladies their presents!

  8. A DIY Teacher’s Gift with Guest Blogger Rebecca G. from Not-So-SAHM





    It’s that time of the year again! School is coming to a close and that means it’s time to thank the incredible people who do so much beyond the basics of teaching our children. There are a myriad of people at our kids’ school who have dedicated themselves to helping our children grow as people, cultivate their creativity and a love of learning, and make school a joyous place to go each day. There simply isn’t a way to thank them enough, but I like to try by putting together a meaningful gift that shows our gratitude.

But now that they are in school, they have their own ideas of the kind of party they want, and we’ve tended to scale back and have smaller parties outside of our house. But that doesn’t mean we don’t want them to look fabulous and be festive! Read More
