#Roséallday party ideas

11 Aug

I have been seeing #roséallday (Rosé all day) trending for some time now. From t-shirts to totes – this trend keeps growing! We were so smitten with the trend, we created our own line of personalized napkins and cups. These are perfect for:

  • Bridal showers
  • Bachelorette parties
  • Milestone birthday party (great 40th party idea!)
  • Girls night
  • Back-to-school Mom’s get together
  • Rosé all day wine tasting

You can customize your cups and napkins to your party theme.  Just add some appetizers and rosé wine and you’ve got a party!  I think it would be cute to add some pink flowers for decorations or pink balloons, depending on the party.

Looking for food that pairs well with rosé wine?  We were inspired by this BuzzFeed article on 25 Foods That Go Perfectly With a Glass of Rosé.

Enjoy the rest of your summer and let us know what your favorite rosé wine is in the comments!

Wedding Inspiration: Mint & Purple

29 Mar

 

Our latest wedding inspiration board is all about mint and purple.  This combination just screams (maybe whispers?) Spring and Summer weddings.  This color combination is so fresh and pretty and would be perfect for an outdoor wedding.  For flowers, you could use lilacs which would smell heavenly.  Some other flower choices would be vintage purple mini calla lilies, lavender hyacinth, lavender gem tulips and english lavender.  My flower picks are from FiftyFlowers.com.

Get inspired by our picks:

Celery wedding union engagement invitations, happily ever after napkins, leather cuff bracelet with monogram disk, purple little leaves thank you note cards, script monogram with text linen like guest towels, coronation scroll twisted handled bags, mint vintage wreath save the date cards, mint love and thanks note cards, purple endearing love photo save the date cards, initial scroll hanging gift tags.

DIY Easter Egg Bath Bombs

1 Mar

Easter is around the corner and I thought this year it would be really fun to include some homemade Easter egg bath bombs in my kids Easter baskets.  If you have a tween or teen girl, you know how much they love bath bombs.  I recently learned how easy (and somewhat inexpensive) they are to make at home.  Besides Easter, you could make these for any occasion.  Birthdays, baby showers, bridal showers, etc.  I think these would make great bridal shower favors.  You could use our personalized favor tags & bags to make it an adorable take home favor!

My daughter Emily and I made these over the weekend and we had a lot of fun doing this together.  It was messy, so keep a vacuum nearby!  Here is the recipe we used from diyprojectsforteens.com:

Ingredients and Supplies:

  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup citric acid
  • 1/2 cup Epsom salts
  • 1 tsp. water
  • 2 tsp. essential oil
  • 3 tsp. oil (olive oil)
  • food coloring (any color you want)
  • bowl
  • whisk
  • jar
  • bath bomb mold

Step One

Place the dry ingredients in a bowl and then mix them all evenly with the whisk.

Step Two

In a separate container, mix the liquid ingredients together. Note that in this step, the essential oils, fragrances and colors are added. This is an important step! Make sure to pick out lots of fragrance oils to try out here, as you can make many fabulous combinations for bath time.

Step Three

Slowly add the liquid mixture to the dry mix, one small spoon at a time.

Step Four

When well mixed, you simply pack this mixture into a bath bomb mold and pack tightly, then let it dry. Work quickly so as not to let the bath bomb mixture dry out.

We packed plastic Easter Eggs and clear ornament molds I found at a craft store.

My daughter Emily proud of her Bath Bomb creation!  You can combine different colors and scents if you’d like to make more colorful combinations. 

Enjoy!
