October in Review

It is blowing my mind that October is over and we are fast approaching Thanksgiving!  While shopping this weekend, some stores were actually playing Christmas music! I’m like a giddy little girl this time of year! October was a great month and I can’t wait to see what November has in store.

Hello October!

September flew by and I cannot believe it is October. Last month was great, I spent some time in the Pacific Northwest, went to the Malibu triathlon (to cheer, not partake), spent time enjoying the last few weeks of “official” summer and did some serious blog planning. October marks the beginning of my favorite time of year, the HOLIDAY season. Halloween, Thanksgiving and then the winter festivities ending with New Years. 2014 will be here before we know it, but for now, enjoy one day at a time!

Seriously, there are some awesome shots. I picked out a few of my favorites below, but to see the full gallery, check it out here.

4th of July Designs

I had a great 4th of July weekend, going to the beach, and celebrating with friends. We decided last minute to throw a little get together after I found some adorable plates and napkins at Target. I designed some little print outs + made some confetti to make our place look festive.

I decided to use more muted red + blue for the printouts so that it would all look cohesive with the bought plates and straws.

I love these paper straws, and decided to add cute little sayings on each of them.

Last, but not least, I designed a patriotic-themed menu for our guests including drinks and appetizers we had:

I kept the same aesthetic throughout all the decorations, and all the guests loved it!
Happy Monday!
