Tropical Wedding Bouquets

Just got back from my trip... had this post saved and ready!

With wedding season just around the corner, I thought I'd share some tropical wedding bouquet pictures I had saved on my computer.

The major theme is orchids in all different colors.  However there are peonies, roses, hydrangeas, camellias, gardenias,  and lilies in the bouquets too.  

Have you seen my Hawaii Wedding Locations Guide?

Lilly Pulitzer and Target Collaboration: My Favorite Picks!

If you haven't heard by now, then let me tell you: Lilly Pulitzer is doing a collaboration with Target!! What???? Yep, that means there is fun Lilly stuff at affordable prices ($2-$150!).

Not only is there a collection for Women, but there is a collection for the home. It features plates, napkins, glassware, umbrellas, chairs, everything for your beach party!

 Of course, I love a Lilly scarf. They have tons of them for a good price... $20. Normally they cost $120!

There is also a variety of espadrilles and sandals! How cute are the sandals with the pineapple??

 They are tons of fabulous beach totes too...

The pieces go on sale April 19... when I'm in Paris. Boo. Sooo, I probably won't be getting any of it as these colaborations usually sell out in like 2 seconds.  Unless... you want to get me something from this list.... ya know.... hint hint-iwearamedium-hint hint.  Click HERE to see the rest of the collection!!

Pictures are from Target.  I was not paid for this endorsement, I just happen to love Lilly Pulitzer!

Upcoming Trip Plans to Paris: Tour du Patisserie

I'm headed to Paris next week on what I'm calling my "Tour du Patisserie".  I've been to Paris a few times before, so I've "been there and done that" to some of the most famous attractions.  My husband has never been, so we will be going to the Louvre and Eiffel Tower, but I have some other things in mind...

...It involves things like...

Weekend Whimsy #5 - Easter Edition!

Welcome to this Easter edition of Weekend Whimsy!

Wow, look at these very pretty Easter baskets, from Martha Stewart, who else??

Have a look at these fancy imperial Faberge eggs... they are just so incredibly pretty.

How cute are these bunny sneakers?? They also come in black! 

Don't know what to do with all of those extra eggs? How about making this healthy greek yogurt egg salad sandwich?

The pictures on this blog are so pleasing to the eye... but I have no idea what the blog says as it's in another language. Take a look at these pretty Easter pictures!

I am in love with this hare fabric... I would use it besides Easter time! 

These tussie mussie napkins have me just dying from cuteness!  They are easy to make too, you could pull it off in time for tomorrow!


This rabbit menu card is so cute... the little bunny tail carnation is so clever! 

I fell in love with the Pottery Barn glitter eggs but they sold out before I could buy them... this is the perfect Pottery Barn Easter copy-cat! 

28 beautiful Easter tablescapes to ooh and aah ate! 

And will end it for the week!!
