Vintage Shabby Chic Mad Hatter Tea Party

In effort to continue recycling birthday themes, we had tea party, round two this past weekend. While the original plan was to simply duplicate the original tea party from 7 years ago, as I began mentally preparing this party, I decided I wanted to add a little something different and quickly settled on a Vintage Shabby Chic Mad Hatter Tea Party theme. I didn’t want it to be an actual Alice in Wonderland party but I was in love...

An Easter Recipe Worth Sharing

I hope you had a lovely Easter! We had a super low-key Easter breakfast at home with my parents and one of the new recipes I tried was so good, I had to share it with you all!

St. Patrick’s Day Ideas

I don’t think I’m even Irish (we have some questionable roots) but there is no denying that St. Patrick’s Day is flat out fun. And my husband actually IS Irish so that’s just lucky for me. Green beer? Awesome. Don’t drink? Corned beef and cabbage rocks. Don’t enjoy the food? Watch other people who drink too much beer make asses out of themselves. It’s a win-win. Admit it.
