Baby-Q!

As summer comes to an end, everyone finds a reason to be outdoors.  It is the perfect time to gather your family and friends for some backyard fun! Nothing is better at the end of summer than firing up the grill and having a nice cold cocktail…or mocktail! That’s right, moms-to-be like to join in on the summer fun too.  That is why a baby-q is definitely in order for those soon to be mothers in the fall.  A baby-q is a fun and easy shower theme that is dad friendly as well as very laid back.  Here are some ideas so you can host your very own baby-q!

These Sophia Webster flats are so gorgeous and fitting for this week’s Tuesday Shoesday! This is because the rose gold “Bibi Butterfly” applique on the shoe is made in Brazil (Olympics 2016).  This rose gold applique combined with the silver leather on the base of the shoe makes these flats sleek and stylish.  $350.00

2016 Rio Olympics Cocktail: The Caipirinha!

Today is the opening day of the 2016 Rio Olympics! This is a very exciting time for people to gather all of their family and friends for a viewing party. Since the Olympics are a very special occasion that only happens every four years, it is only right to have a specialty cocktail for all of your guests to enjoy.  What better drink of choice is there than Brazil’s national cocktail, the caipirinha?!

I have been to Brazil twice and I must say that this cocktail is now my absolute favorite!  It is so simple, yet very versatile.  It will make your guests forget all about this cocktail’s distant cousin, the mojito (haha). Here are some delicious caipirinha recipes that I know you and your guests will love just as much as I do.

TBT: Summertime Wedding Tips!

Summer is officially here and there are weddings happening almost every weekend.  With the beautiful weather that the season brings, many of these weddings are held outdoors.  With that being said, it is only right for our TBT post to be all about tips on how to enjoy a summertime wedding by keeping cool and avoiding those pesky mosquito bites.

 

Now that summer’s upon us, it’s time for a few friendly reminders – the following tips will help make your wedding the hottest of the year (in a good way)!

The Joy of the Great Outdoors

As the saying goes, if you want the rainbow, you have to put up with the rain. Or do you? To make sure you’re not caught by surprise on the day of your wedding, always have a backup plan in place – make preparations for a tent, because you never know if you might need it. This way, should rain make an appearance on the big day, it is not an unexpected guest.

Unfortunately, sometimes the great outdoors brings another unwelcome guest: mosquitoes! To ward off these pests, you can place lanterns treated with insect repellent at each table:

Drinks

Make sure to have plenty of cold refreshments available to your guests to keep them happy and hydrated:

Staying in the Shade

Give your guests relief from the hot summer sun by providing them with mini bottles of broad-spectrum sunscreen before the wedding starts, so they have time to apply. Here are some more ideas for keeping cool:

No Wilting Allowed

Work with your florist and choose blooms that are in season – this will help prevent your beautiful bouquets and centerpieces from wilting in the summer heat. Or you can skip the flowers altogether and go for a brooch bouquet that definitely won’t wilt:

The bottom line for outdoor weddings is this: keep cool and hydrated, and enjoy your day!
