A Thoughtfully Simple Romantic Wedding

Romantic Wedding Ideas

You guys. I have been telling you I’m going to post this wedding since 2012. THREE years later and I’m finally sharing these photos. Why has it taken me so long? Honestly because there were just sooooo many gorgeous photos I felt overwhelmed and couldn’t decide which to share! Problems, I know.

In fact, I procrastinated so long that this darling couple (who also happen to by my brother and sister-in-law!) have been married for three years, and I’ve already posted about their baby shower (GAWH) and my niece will be ONE next month. Wow, we’re all out of order over here. Sooooo without much more, I’ll jump into the pics (because that’s what you really want to see)!

Tea Party Ideas + Scone Recipe

Tea Party Ideas from Thoughtfully SimpleAre you hooked on Downton Abbey like I am? I confess to catching on late and then bin-watching season after season (there could be worse things to binge on, right?). As the finale of season 5 is approaching (it’s Feb 22!) it’s time to start thinking about hosting a finale party. Because, why not? If you’re a fan of the show, it’s a must. If you’re not into the show, you can find any reason to gather the ladies in your life for a little tea … I’m sure of it.

Sip It :: Mini Holiday Martini

mini martini

I love a good holiday themed martini. I also love serving mini martinis at cocktail and holiday parties. Here’s why: you can create a fun signature martini and even you non-martini-lovin’ guests will happily take a glass and enjoy. It’s a nice and festive 2-3 sips without the commitment of a full martini (for the record, gal doesn’t mind this form of commitment… just sayin’).

I adapted the cranberry and rosemary cocktail recipe I shared a while back to be served in these adorable mini martini glasses. Aren’t they cute?
