It’s been a long winter…as the sun is starting to shine a bit brighter and the temperatures rise higher, we can’t help but open all the windows and joyfully let the light in! This month, we are saying bring on the Vitamin D and stepping outside to soak up the sun. We will share unique outdoor entertaining ideas, spring style tips and much more. One of our stops will be at this dreamy table by floral designer extraordinaire Margot Blair where a gaggle of cute kiddos in costume gathered. What was for lunch? Donuts, of course!

Speaking of florals, we will catch up with a dear friend of Team Camille Styles, Ashley Woodson Bailey, for an Artist Spotlight interview on her stunning new floral photography.

Cinco de Mayo Fiesta | Michael Thad Carter

It’s probably because of my South Texas upbringing that a fiesta theme is always one of my favorites. We threw a Cinco de Mayo First Birthday Party for my daughter last year and will be sharing all the details, including a DIY for this flower archway in an upcoming post later this month.

Gail Chovan & Evan Voyles |Nicole Mlakar for Camille Styles

In Love + Work, we pay a visit to Austin’s resident King and Queen of Cool, fashion designer Gail Chovan and celebrated neon sign artist, Evan Voyles to tour their South Austin studio. From Mother’s Day gift ideas to how to create the perfect picnic, we can’t wait to share April stories with you…happy spring!
