I Love Love Mood Boards // Catcti Party

The cactus, it's a low maintenance houseplant, but it's also the motif of the moment.  If you follow any design savvy person on pinterest, then you've seen the multitude of adorable DIY projects that would be perfect for a cacti themed party.  I am just smitten with this idea for a kids party or baby shower.  What do you think?  Are you over the cactus?

I Love Love Mood Boards // Flower Child Day at the Beach

VW Busses have been calling my name lately.  They always do, but recently they've been showing up as a welcome symbol that always make me happy.  Those iconic vintage vehicles along with my desire for the next generation to find them as charming as I do is the inspiration for this mood board.  A little hippie, a little surfer, all fun is the theme for this beach soirée.

I Love Love Mood Boards // Ice Cream Social

It's the end of summer, what kind of party should we throw?  An ice cream social, of course!  This whimsical party would be fun for all!  With retro vibes, both oldies and current hits blaring from a boom box, and lots of delicious ice cream flavors, adults would have as much fun as the kids.  Obviously we love this happy, quirky color palette, for this yummy party with just the right amount of kitsch.  Better throw this one soon, before the summer melts away.
