“No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.”  Hal Borland

Hello again Spring

Happy Spring everybody!  It looks like the much awaited season of blooms and rain is finally here.  Although the weather is still a little shaky with some mixed rain/snow and low temperatures in the forecast, I am excited that it’s official.  Don’t worry, the sunshine and refreshing breeze that we have all been dreaming about will be here soon!

In the meantime, I am inspired by soft petals, peachy-hued bouquets and bright centerpieces fit for any happy celebration!  Enjoy and keep smiling – we have officially said good bye to winter and new beginnings and adventures await.  Lots of love and happy Thursday! xoxo

Happy, happy Friday friends!  The weekend is here once again and I hope you have some lovely and relaxing plans to help you recharge your batteries.  It has been a busy week for me here, and although I am looking forward to enjoying a bit of down time, I am also very excited about some upcoming blog posts and collaborations (stay tuned!).

In the meantime, I thought I’d wrap things up for the week by sharing a few special little touches I love to see at weddings and celebrations – you know, those little elements that remind us that beauty is always in the details.  Enjoy!

One of my favourite elements in special celebrations is that of signature drinks. Slowing sipping and enjoying a well crafted, creative cocktail can definitely be a luxurious experience. The beauty of having a signature drink on your wedding day is that it can be as simple or as intricate as you want it to be. While there are some couples who work closely with mixologists to create something completely custom for their special day, others choose something they already love and give it a fun and quirky name that means something to them.  Whatever route you choose to take, the idea is to have a signature drink that satisfies both of your tastes and to give it a name that will make you and your guests smile.  Create something light and refreshing for spring and summer weddings, and go for fuller flavours and spirits for fall and winter weddings.  Remember to be considerate to those guests who do not drink, and offer an equally beautiful and delicious non-alcoholic beverage for them to enjoy.  Check out the tasty sips below and click on the links for the recipes.  Cheers!
