Hip, Hip, Hooray! Or should I say Sip Sip Rosé?! It’s Friday and that means it’s time for a big exhale. It’s been a looooooong week over here. We’re trying to jump back into work and school starting after some time off. Also, our pup is also pretty sick after having and emergency surgery (think Marley and Me situation) so we’re trying to get back to his normal self).
This weekend will be full of photoshoots and some special projects but I’m definitely going to make time to sip a glass of rosé and take a breather. How about you?
I’ve had a hard time finding a rosé I love at the local market. I would LOVE your suggestions! So far my favorite bottle has been this 2015 Sauvetage Rosé I found on ClubW (I might have ordered about 12 bottles this summer). But I’d love an option I can run to the market and grab on a Friday like today.
(PS if you want to check out ClubW wines, I highly recommend them. You can use my referral link).
So tell me … what’s your favorite go-to Rosé to sip? Friends share wine recommendations. It’s totally a thing, so dish.
Okay, who’s a fan of 90’s rap and hip hop? If you’re raising your hand right now, then these printable Valentine’s Day cards are for you. I’ve been teasing them on Instagram this weekend and am now so excited to let you print them out yourselves!
Put them on your desk next week, give them to a 90’s-lovin’ gal pal, or to your special Valentine.
See one you’d like to give? Feel free to click the link below each picture and print your own. xoxo
Who doesn’t love a good Salt-n-Peppa throwback? You make me wanna shoop…..
This week is all about last minute holiday prep (are you in this same boat?). One way to add some quick style to your holiday season is by incorporating holiday printables. What I love about printables is that they are an easy (and often free) way to give some style to your table setting, food display or gift wrapping. Simply print and you’re ready to go — simple! Look at this darling table setting by The Party Dress.
The addition of a simple printable name tag puts the finishing touches on the tablescape. I suggest using printable name cards (like the ones shown here) to direct guests to their seats. Place them on the napkin, directly on the plate or even attach them to the chair backs. Be creative!
Download these FREE holiday printables from The Party Dress here. There are several holiday printable you can incorporate. Like these straw flags (perfect for holiday cocktails!).
And these gift tags that are perfect for holiday favors and gifts.
This holiday season, let loved ones know how much you care. Use your favorite photos to create something personalized and unique for everyone on your list. Make it memorable. Make it meaningful. Make it matter. Go to hp.com/holiday for inspiration and ideas.

It’s no secret that the invitation sets the tone for the party, baby shower, wedding — or whatever the event may be. Making or finding theperfect one however can be tough. For me, it’s my favorite part of the party planning process. Sometimes it comes easy, sometimes it’s a long process, but once I’ve found “it” I get extremely motivated (and excited) to plan the rest of the event!
For this upcoming engagement party, I had an exact vision of what I wanted the invitations to look and feel like. Kori (as she always does) was able to jump into my crowded mind and deliver — the. perfect. invites.
Classy and sophisticated …. yet a little whimsy and fun. Black with a touch of orange and bright pink, great fonts and (my favorite part) an original pattern designed just for this party. Here’s a look!
You can see the pattern in the picture above, it covers the entire reverse side of the invite and was meant to bit a bit of a “surprise.” I LOVE how they turned out. What do you think?
Many more professional photos to come of this event so stay tuned (I snapped this with an iphone real quick because I just couldn’t wait to share!)
This past weekend, I helped host a very special gathering — it was for my brother and was more of a trifecta of celebrations. He turned 18, graduated high school and is heading off to boot camp to become a Marine (how’s THAT for milestones?). We kept the decor simple (he’s a guy after all) and created some DIY party decorations using his high school colors. I used several signs throughout the party to tie in the color scheme — here they are.
These sign holders are my new absolute favorite! They hold TWO 4×6 photos each (yep, they are double sided!). They are from Ikea and only $.99 each! Thank you to Jen of HTWM for sharing these with us, great resource.
Thirsty? One sign on the drink table …
And one for the snack table. Simple, just how I like it!
Here are both signs. You should be able to right click + save if you’d like to print them for your next party. Enjoy!
Thanks to HWTM for both the tip on the sign holders and the inspiration for the sign design!
