How To Set Up A Bouquet Bar

If you’re planning a bridal/baby shower, having a big party, or need something special to celebrate the ladies in your church, community or workplace, I highly recommend setting up a bouquet bar! I rounded up everything you’ll need to make it happen.

double the denim

I love denim on denim: it’s simple and effortless, a no-brainer when you feel like you have “nothing to wear,” and most important, it’s all kinds of comfortable. I think the trick to pulling it off in a polished way is picking quality pieces, and mixing shades and textures on the top and bottom. It’s easy to get denim shirt fever and end up with a dozen variations in your closet. But when it comes down…

creative storage for book hoarders

My book hoarding is reaching new heights lately; both figuratively and literally. All the bookshelves in my home are at maximum capacity and there are stacks of hardbacks growing like stalagmites from my dining room floor. Our home collection kind of exploded last week after, sadly, my favorite used bookstore shuttered its operations. But not before having a $1 sale on their entire inventory. I went a little nuts… Also, a sweet friend recently delivered an…

overalls, all grown up.

Coveralls, bibs, dungarees; whatever you call ’em, you probably either love ’em or hate ’em. I’m in the overall enthusiast camp; probably because I grew up in the 90’s and spent most of my childhood buckled up in their comfy, practical awesomeness. This spring, a great pair of stylish grown-lady coveralls is on my wish list. I think they’d be perfect for running around the flower shop with cute sneakers and a tee, or on girls…

  • The only thing that would’ve made this @bonappetitmag ‘white pesto pasta’ better is if @lallimusic was in my kitchen when I made it. (I re-watched her video as I prepped, which was the next best thing.) Guys, I cannot overstate the seriousness of my obsession with the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel. Most of my bookmarks on my phone are videos of recipes I want to try, and I’m slowly making my way through ‘em; kind of like ‘Julie & Julia’ but with fewer live lobsters and a little less butter.

  • Spotted this pretty blooming bush on our evening walk through the neighborhood. 
Doak got a little *too* close to the smell the flowers. 🤣
  • In today’s edition of #sundaybaking, I took on @bonappetitmag’s ‘best chocolate chip cookies’. I watched the video first — if you’re not following the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel, get on it! — then used the recipe from BA’s website to guide me through it. 
Crispy edges + a chewy center + brown butter + giant chunks of 70% dark chocolate = a pretty perfect cookie. 🍪
@moroccochris - I salute you.

  • Clearance vase jackpot at @pier1 this weekend. There are so many great colors and textures in all shapes and sizes from $10-30 with an extra 25% off. ⁣
This was the ultimate test of self-control for me...⁣
I bought 5.
  • Saturday errand style f/ two #styleonabudget favorites from last summer that are still going strong: this gingham ruffle cami I found on a clearance rack at @target + a rattan circle bag I bought for around $25 on @amazon. 
I’m killing the cost-per-wear game with these two. 😏 #whatiwore #ootd #summerstyle #stylefiles
