Weekend Notes

Another weekend, already?! These weeks are flying, and I can’t believe we’ve started the 10-day countdown to moving into our new home!

Bright Young Things

Though usually relegated to kids’ parties or cutesy showers, I’m loving the current trend of using streamers in surprisingly chic ways to add bright, whimsical appeal to event decor.  This bar setup from Martha Stewart, adorned with shimmering cutout circles, would be perfect for a stylish New Years Eve bash.  And how sophisticated is this… read more
