Father’s Day is Almost Here!

Celebrate Dad’s Day in style with a big family brunch this coming Sunday. I love the idea of gathering all of the grandpas, uncles and dads together for one big, delicious celebration!

Incorporate a few lawn games like bocce ball, cricket or even a relay race to amp up the afternoon fun. I love these mustaches that have become so popular at parties (like this one over at Full House!) – how cute would they be as casual little place cards?

You can’t go wrong with a hearty brunch like this line-up: The Food Network’s Nana’s cinnamon rolls, roasted spicy sausage with sauteed onions, a hearty vegetable frittata and BHG’s greatest-waffle-recipe-ever. Table design found on Style Me Pretty.

While I won’t get to spend Father’s Day with our dad’s this year, I’m looking forward to a mellow weekend with the hubby working on the house! Cards, gifts and honoring of our dear papas are in the mail.

Beautiful Paper Flowers for a Summer Party

These are beautiful! A simple and elegant paper flower garland lights up a summer party – and it’s so easy to recreate. Erin Heath handmade these paper flowers for Grace Bonney’s wedding (of design*sponge). I adore the garland swags and would replicate this idea in a minute for a baby or bridal shower this summer.

For an easy paper flower tutorial (from my vintage nesting shower this spring) using the same button embellishments, check out this link here.

Erin made the garland by cutting different shades of green paper into leaves; to make the flowers cut your petal forms from similar paper and fold to create the ridged texture. Add a complimentary center using vintage buttons, trimmings and handmade paper.

There are so many wonderful details to share from Grace and Aaron’s wedding, to get an overview of the rest of their DIY projects jump out to d*s’s wedding roundup.

Favorite Fabric: East Village by Rubie Green

Michelle Adams, founder of Rubie Green, has designed a delightful line of 15 fabrics ranging from 100% cotton to upholstery prints for the home. One of my favorite prints is her East Village pattern (love that chevron) in light and bright pink.

Formally an editor at Domino, Michelle has honed a classic sense of style and I l-o-v-e her fun prints. The website features accessories like coin purses (to wrangle in lipgloss and mascara floating at the bottom of your bag) to pillow covers, and of course they also sell fabric by the yard.
