My three weeks in Italy last October still feels like a dream… {A dream of days where time seems to stop or at the very least slow to a pace where you feel every feeling; every smile, color, ray of sun, drop of rain; where time never seems to disappoint with all it’s grandeur and possibility.} Our time in Italy was marked by several big experiences, one of which was our Art Shoot for Destination I Do Magazine, the others, I will write more about in the coming days. My interest in editorial work began in 2009 with a meager […]

Back today with more from my best friend’s wedding shower seen in Bridal Guide Magazine!  There were so many personal touches that turned into moments I will never forget.  From the gold squirrels on each menu to the caricature artist capturing me and Amy’s favorite phrase “Ocean Now”, it was a day that I cherish… Guests were seated at a long banquet style table lined with round balloons and White Anemone floral arrangements.  Pieces from my own collection were added to give the table a bit more personality. To honor the many street artists we enjoyed in Paris, I hired […]

I wrote this post, what seems like forever ago when knee deep in plans for my best friend’s wedding shower last year.  Here we are exactly 1 year later and I’m over the moon to share the whole party as seen in the newest issue of Bridal Guide Magazine, on newsstands today!!

More from styling mavin Maggie today!!  Did you miss her first post earlier this week?  Take a look! 3. Who knew you can dress up the table that’s going to hold china and silverware? Well Kim apparently did… Throw your favorite piece of fabric over-top, stack your mis-matched china & add some silverware into a tin and voila! 4. Side table! I don’t think I need to explain this one. (Love the colors here Maggie, teal and tangerine?  Yes please!!! – K) 5. And for the men! Throw some cigars in there and we’ve got ourselves a bar/lounge area. (of […]

When planning our vow renewal celebration back in 2010 I met Maggie, the lovely gal behind Maggpie Vintage Rentals.  Maggie and Jason (the fiance) are making quite the name for themselves and I’m lucky to have them right in my back yard!  In addition to having a keen eye for spotting the sweetest pieces to collect, Maggie also has a sharp eye for styling.  This week she put together some inspiration for us based on the newest pieces in her inventory, so much so I can’t fit it all into one post!  Big hugs to Maggie for staging these glorious […]
