Weekend Notes

Happy Easter weekend, lovelies! Hope yours have all gotten off to a great start. Anyone hosting a big meal for family or friends? We’re headed to Adam’s parents house for Phoebe’s first real Easter egg hunt (last year she wasn’t walking yet, so…) I’m bringing a big salad as my contribution to the meal, but… read more


DIY :: Egg-Holder Place Cards

We’re big proponents of the place card — not only does it save your guests a game of musical chairs, but something about it is the perfect cherry-on-top to any place setting design. Above all, I love when a place card is both functional and decorative (remember these?)… and since Easter is all about setting… read more


DIY :: Embroidered Felt Easter Eggs

Easter egg crafts hold a special place in my heart, right up there with Valentine’s Day card making. They’re low-pressure, great for kids, and best of all, they just scream spring! I’ve always loved the rustic and homemade look of felt balls, so for this project we used wool roving to make egg-shaped delights rather than the… read more


Happy Easter!

What are all of you up to this Easter morning? We’re headed to have brunch with both sets of parents (my mom is making this cake – yum), and based on the proud look on her face, Phoebe already seems to be fully aware of just how cute she looks in her little smocked dress.… read more

What does my ideal breakfast look like, you ask? There are two… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Sunny Side Up

It’s the day after the first SXSW weekend, and I doubt I’m the only one who woke up craving eggs benedict followed by a long workout to sweat out all those margaritas. My panel on creating video for the web was yesterday morning – thanks so much to all of you who came out for… read more


Pinning with Martha

This month I’m the official “guest pinner” for my BFF Martha Stewart (a girl can dream) and I’d love for you all to come follow along! The team and I will be uncovering the most inspiring food, fashion, tabletops, crafts and cocktails for Easter – pretty much everything you need to plan a gorgeous holiday. And… read more


Have a {candy-fueled & magical} Easter!

Up early this morning, prepping for the Easter brunch I’m making for our families today. I’m keeping things pretty simple – a big roasted veggie & prosciutto frittata, maple-glazed bacon, roasted potatoes, fruit salad and coffee cake muffins…and my mom is bringing her towering citrus-carrot cake with mascarpone icing to top things off! Thought I’d… read more
