If you guys are following us on Instagram, then you might have seen some iPhone snaps from the Oh Joy for Target brunch that we attended a couple weeks ago. In fact, it took some major restraint to keep ourselves from #overgramming that morning. It was cute central over there!
The brunch was held to preview Oh Joy’s rad new collab with Target—a collection of entertaining essentials guaranteed to make any party fabulous. It was pouring rain the morning of the brunch, but that didn’t stop us from trekking out to celebrate with Joy and some of our fellow blogger friends from all around the city. And we were sure glad we did… There were some of the cutest cake toppers and cocktail napkins and confetti that we’ve ever seen! Not to mention yummy bites and popsicle bellinis.
There’s our Amanda catching up with pals Jen from Ban.do, Lauren from Walnut Animal Society and Julie from Julie’s Kitchen. Everyone was dressed in the most amazing color scheme.
And Jillian chatting with Sarah of Smitten Studio and Kelly of Kelly Golightly.
This flower wall is actually the napkins from the collection, stuffed into chicken wire!
Amanda with Audrey from Urbanic, matching the decor oh-so nicely.
And how cute are Joy and Bob, btw?!
The Oh Joy for Target collection is available online and in stores right now. Better grab some party and entertaining pieces before it sells out!
And thanks again, Joy, for having us to brunch to celebrate with you! We had so much fun!
You didn’t think we’d forget about St. Paddy’s day, did you? Nah, of course not. Whether you have Irish blood in ya or just enjoy a pint of Guinness, it’s as good an excuse as any to celebrate. This styled shoot from Leah Mceachern Photography and Pink Paisley Events sums up the Irish celebration in a softer, more romantic way. You’ve got your traditional green palette and Irish beer of course, but it’s a touch more elegant than you might expect from a typical St. Patrick’s Day soiree.
Did you know that the saying “tying the knot” comes from the old Celtic tradition of hand binding during a wedding ceremony? Such a neat little tidbit!
Thanks to all the talented peeps below! And happy St. Patrick’s Day to all.

It would be kinda hard to shoot on the canals of Venice and not have it turn out gorgeous. Gondolas passing, quaint sidewalk cafes, centuries old architecture—enough said. But even so, Heather Waraksa and Chic Weddings really outdid themselves with this bit of bridal inspiration. It’s dark, mysterious, elegant, and distinctly European.
Gold calligraphy on black paper always gets us. Love.
We’re guessing that one of the best parts of tying the knot in Italy has got to be the cuisine. That squid ink pasta is looking mighty tasty.
Hello, McQueen! Heather says, We wanted to show that a black wedding dress doesn’t need to fall into the category of gothic wedding. It can be very charming, elegant, yet different.
Thanks to everyone below for sharing this beautiful shoot with us!
