Happy Friday + Birthday Tablescape for Bright.Bazaar

Happy weekend friends. This has been a very productive week. Insane busy but also really fun. And fun is what inspired this party tablescape I created and styled for Mr. Bright.Bazaar’s recent birthday. Happy, happy Will.


Pinwheels, wish flags made by guests, streamer chandelier, diy spoon artwork, Claudia’s amazing patterned stationery, custom coasters and matchboxes all come together for a cheerful bright birthday party for our fav brit, Will. A peek but check out the full feature here.

Have a fantastic weekend. xo

Are you ready for Fall?

As much as I love Summer, I love Fall even more. The weather is much nicer, there are fewer mosquitoes here in DC and I love the bright colors of leaves.

Over at Bright Bazaar I spotted 6 beautiful Fall party themes created by the immensely talented creative team of stylists over at BHLDN. These tablescapes got me instantly excited for Fall entertaining. Each features several quirky, whimsical and pretty party supplies which you can mix and match to create a totally unique look for your party.

While they are all lovely, dreamy and sure to put any guest in good spirits,  I was especially drawn to these three themes.


A real party starter, this look brings out the romantic bookworm in me. Easy to create too. Buy vintage/old hard cover books from thrift stores, I get them as low as 10 cents, and tear pages to create one of a kind placemats, menu cards and more. Add glitter + sparkles and voila!

Arent these favors adorable? I do something very similar with my business cards: insert into clear velum sleeves and ink stamp them with pretty designs. Once, for a client I used these sleeves to insert recipe cards as favors.

Dont forget to create a sip station. Guests feel instantly at home when they can help themselves to beverages. How fun are these chalkboard planters? I would love to use these at a sip station to jot down the name of cocktail and fill with herbs (such as mint) that are part of the recipe.

How would you use these?

Tell me how are you getting ready for the new season? Or are you sad Summer is almost over?

ps: dont miss the beautiful collage that Will created with all six looks.
