Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone! We thought we’d share the photos from our DIY plant hanger workshop with Room & Board and Crafting Community with you this weekend. It was such a lovely afternoon and event, and everyone who came made a really cute planter. We’ve got ours hanging in our houses for sure!
Naturally we had to have snacks and lots of flowers.
And gorgeous little locally grown succulents donated by Whole Foods Market.
Thanks to everyone who came out to this event, and to Room & Board and Crafting Community for partnering with us! We can’t wait to do it again soon.
Whoohoo, the long weekend is *finally* here! What do you guys have planned? Just the time to perfect your skills in the cake department. We wanted to share this super quick video we made for our bridal shower inspiration shoot with Crate and Barrel. Watch below to see how to frost and fill the perfect naked cake in no time at all, thanks to the talented Sheila Mae.
Much easier than it seems, right? Let us know if you give it a try!
At first, M + C weren’t totally sold on the idea of having a big shindig for their wedding. But with so many friends + fam they wanted to celebrate with and a gorgeous venue AKA Megan’s parents’ new home in Sonoma, there was no reason not to go all in. After a year of planning and a ton of help from their talented loved ones, a big, beautiful shindig it was. Thanks to Jennifer Emerling for sharing the photos + Wade from Shark Pig for the video.
Megan says, My family has California roots, but we lived on the east coast and Chris is from the Boston area. With so many friends and family making the trip from the east coast (and beyond) we wanted the affair to feel very Sonoma—laidback but welcoming and thoughtful. My parents have wanted to retire in wine country for quite some time and finally began the process around the time we got engaged—so having the shindig at their new home was so special. I love oak trees (and Spanish moss), and a part of the property had this incredible cluster of trees so we made this into a venue.
Sweet words from Megan… We chipped away at the details over the course of a year and learned a lot about one another. We both have busy work schedules which I think helped when we encountered some pretty big curve balls… We both felt so lucky to have such supportive and loving friends and family—this was just one (albeit super fun and awesome) day amidst a life long marriage. You just have to keep things in perspective and appreciate all that people are doing on your behalf.
