Turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie and after a nap, Myles Standish sandwiches….is Thanksgiving not the best?!?  Sometimes when you’re a guest and not playing hostess it’s easy to overlook the crazy hard work that goes into putting on a feast like Thanksgiving, so it’s always nice to bring a little gift as a thank you to the creative genius behind your belt loosening meal.  We’ve taken the ground work out of the equation for you and hand picked a few of our favorite hostess gifts, some DIY, some partially DIY and a couple that are just an easy purchase.

Happy Thanksgiving! We’re grateful for all of you!

Wedding Wednesday….Katie + Gui!

Today on Style Me Pretty!!!!

THIS WEDDING. I almost can’t find the words to describe it’s beauty, but I will. Katie and Gui said “I do” on a picture perfect late summer day, with the water set as their backdrop at a private residence in Jamestown, RI.  This gorgeous summer wedding gave way to cocktails enjoyed outside on the oceans edge with beautiful blue and white ikat patterned linens.  The ambiance was enhanced as dinner and dancing continued under a Sperry tent, rich with lush textures and romantic creams and blushes. The linens on the tables were breathtaking rosettes that mirrored the bottom of the bride’s gown.  Guests could take a break from dancing and enjoy a drink and conversation on one of the velvet couches surrounding the dance floor. No detail was left unturned at this romance filled wedding, some of the top details were the perfect shade of purple bed of hydrangeas that the guest cards were placed on, patterned flip flops for the guests tired dancing feet, crystal chandelier hanging from the tent top and the most beautiful flowers from the bouquets to the centerpieces designed by Hana Floral Design. One of our favorite parts of this show-stopping wedding was the stunning sunset that painted the sky pink, the perfect gift for the newlyweds to enjoy on their wedding night! Leila Brewster captured the beauty of this wedding perfectly!

Wedding Wednesday…Winter Wedding Details!

 

teWinter is coming….which means cold weather, snow and ice BUT it also means super festive decor, lights and flannel.  If you’re hosting a winter wedding or event I love the idea of implimenting holiday themed details into your design but let’s be honest it can get pretty cheesy fast!  I pulled some of my favorite winter details that would add that special touch to your event.  I have to be honest, the vintage glass ornaments are my absolute favorite. The different shapes and muted colors keep it chic opposed to overly festive. I also adore the chairs covered in cozy knit throws, the texture it brings to the design is perfection.  Lastly, the trees! Do you remember being in school and on Earth Day they’d pass out baby trees you were supposed to plant???? Easily one of my top 5 favorite days of the year. This favor/escort card idea kind of captured that feeling for me and I was sold.  Not only are you bringing a little of the organic into your wedding but you’re promoting  planting new trees….two birds one stone, what’s better than that? Maybe just cover the green container in linen or a fabric that fits your design and possibly have a calligrapher write your guests names? Swooncentral.
