Welcome back to PDB’s Friday Guest Blog Interview series! The blogging world is so darn amazing… there are so many wonderful people in this great big world that share some of the neatest inspirations and projects. I hope you don’t mind my weekly interruptions to share some of my favorites… and I think you’ll really like this one.
This blog needs little in the ways of an introduction… the name alone is enough to giveaway how sweet Kylie’s daily stories and projects are! In Kylie’s words… All Things Lovely “is a collection of things I’ve been making, ideas I like and all things that I find lovely.” She spends her days in the beautiful city of Sydney, Australia (and I am oh-so-jealous), being crafty and playing with her labrador, Indiana.
I found this special blog through the above DIY lampshade refashion last year. I used it for my own bedroom lampshades and was so pleased with how they turned out!
BUT before you jump out to the blog, check out Kylie’s answers to PDB’s four Q’s (which I can’t help but read in a delightful Australian accent) and take a peak into her crafty workspace.

Today’s Friday Guest Blog Interview brings us over to a site that I love to visit often for event inspiration. These special ladies have made everything *wedding* their world – and what works spectacularly as an event for 200 is guaranteed gold for a cocktail party for 20. So why not borrow some of the best trade secrets, theme inspirations and color combinations from the pros? And this is where the lovely Kimberly and Heather of Style Unveiled step in!
Style Unveiled shares event tips, real weddings and vendor matches for four main cities: Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland & Chicago. If that’s not enough eye-candy to keep you in happy-event-planning-land for days, dive into their delicious blog (a specific one for each city!) – known affectionately as The Lounge.
Kimberly took a few moments to sit down and share with PDB what makes Style Unveiled so special, what industry tips & tricks they rely on, and a few of their favorite up-and-coming trends. If you’re a bride-to-be you’re in for a real treat. On the flip side, if you’re constantly on the hunt for everyday event inspiration you’ll love their easily adaptable answers that apply to parties of every shape and size.
Without further ado, I’m so happy to introduce to you Kimberly & Heather of Style Unveiled!

Today’s Friday guest blog interview brings us over to the darling site, Maddycakes Muse. Have you had a chance to check out this neat party inspiration blog yet? If not, you’ll love her frugalista approach to all things entertaining. Michelle recently showcased her Dr. Suess Thing One, Thing Two party for an event industry convention, Parties for Pennies, and planned the entire party for just $213!! (more on that after the jump…)
She “muses” about all things creative and beautiful: coffee filter roses & mailed diaper invitations (for a baby shower) being two of my recent favorites on the creative side (would that not make you smile to get one in the mail?) and beautiful damask dinner parties and elaborate tablescapes being on the beautiful end. On that note, how lovely is this Asian-themed dinner party?
I love all of the brilliant colors! and the bamboo name cards double as a clever favor. The tablecloth is actually an Ikea duvet cover found in the As-Is section at a steal of a price (note to self: search through sheets at Ikea asap).
When Michelle is not sharing her latest finds online, she designs & plans childrens parties through her business (by the same name) in Pheonix, Arizona.
If you didn’t think entertaining on a budget was possible – check out two more delicious tablescapes after the jump! and Michelle takes a moment to answer PDB’s four interview questions. Read more »
