Snapshots from :: Los Cabos, Mexico

When friends ask what I did on last week’s trip to Los Cabos, it takes a bit of creativity to come up with an answer because, the real truth is, I did almost nothing!

The first whispers of summer made themselves heard this weekend in Austin – I actually donned a bikini and caught up on magazines by the pool yesterday while Adam worked in the yard and Phoebe napped.

There’s probably no party theme I love more than a fiesta – bold, saturated hues combined with lush flowers and folkloric embroidery; platters of tacos piled high with fresh corn tortillas & guacamole served with pitchers of margaritas.

Once Upon a Time in Mexico…

I just started working on a new party with one of my favorite clients, and I’m so excited about the theme: a colorful, summery fiesta that’s sure to be a festive kickoff to summer. While searching for inspiration, I stumbled across the chicest photos by Stephanie Williams of a wedding in San Miguel De Allende,… read more

Postcard from Paradise

It’s a gorgeous spring FRIDAY, so I am of course itching to get outside, soak up some sun, and have a little taste of summer days ahead. Which explains why I can’t stop obsessing over these images from a rehearsal dinner in Cabo, designed by Alison Events and shot by Anna Kuperberg. The sights, sounds,… read more
