It is about that time for all of us to start attending and or throwing numbers holiday parties. So fun! But what to serve or bring? I’m certain there are those who would disagree, but I think the cuter the better. Ok, it may not be elegant, but it is the holidays. Offer up a little cheer with your food. Why not?!

Engagement season is upon us and lots of you are getting engaged or just did or are about to (yay!!!). This means lots of engagement sessions are going to start happening. But it is winter, and indoor sessions just never seem to be as awesome. So I am very very often asked “what do I wear?”. Well I’m no photographer, but having asked a few and having seen plenty, I share these adorable inspirations with you.

I’ve seen brides go to great lengths to conceal their tattoos and I’ve seen brides really display them. If you have a pretty tattoo that you love, I say show it off. I recently had a bride do so and I just thought it was striking. Of course all of us aren’t quite as proud of that ink we got in college over spring break and may not want to showcase it. To each their own, but I think it really can make a statement and I say go for it!

Are you getting married in an open space either outdoors or an blank slate indoor space? Sometimes you may need to create a focal point for the ceremony, or sometimes you may just want to. Either way, there are so many options of how you can do that. Really, anything can be used to draw ones attention to a certain space and create an interesting backdrop for your photos.

Tulle…it isn’t just for ballerinas and veils anymore. Tulle can be tricky though. Used wrong it could look cheap or too Cinderella (unless that is what you are going for, then by all means). However, used correctly and it can be absolutely chic! It can be fun and flirty or pretty and demure. You can use it so many ways for any kind of event.

I’m no foody, but I do love Thanksgiving for some reason. I love Thanksgiving food, the cranberry sauce, the pie, the mash potatoes! Oh, so much comfort food! What are you making for Thanksgiving dinner?

I’m no fruit expert, but I think it is pear season based on the number of pears we are eating right now and how good they are. Which made me think what adorable fall decor pears would make. You can make an entire theme out of pears, they are even a lovely color scheme in greens, browns and reds.
While I always have great intentions and would love to be all Martha Stewart about my Thanksgiving table, it is just a miracle I get dinner cooked anything else is just not going to happen. However, there are people like my sister who prioritize the table and makes sure she has a beautiful DIY centerpiece and decor. I want to be like her, but I know many of you are! If I were like my sister I would wish my table looked like any of these!
I love fruit as centerpieces!

I am no fan of shower games. I do not want to make a wedding dress out of toilet paper or not get to say the word wedding for two hours. However, some people insist it isn’t a shower otherwise. Below are a few games I could deal with and would still allow you to have a chic shower.

I have always been a fan of the use of herbs. Rosemary is no exception. It is pretty, smells lovely and tastes great to boot. It can be used anywhere in so many different ways. Imagine your entire venue smelling like rosemary! I love the idea. It is so earthy and romantic too and so very festive fall.
