I’ve noticed myself drawn to the mixture of stripes and florals lately, such a nice and fresh combo for spring! In fact, everything is feeling a bit fresh and ready for summer around here. Our farmer’s market opens this weekend and we will be first in line. Plus, we are taking a day trip to visit friends up at the lake Saturday, where I plan to try out a sneaky new party idea. Are you doing anything fun this weekend? I hope it is a wonderful one… whatever it entails.

A few more reasons to celebrate this weekend.
The pretty photo above taken by Jennifer Tabb.
An easy and gorgeous summer centerpiece.
Great message on authenticity that I could echo a hundred times over here and here.
The most adorable paper cut-outs for a kid’s party, plus they sell for a good cause!
Washi tape i-phone cover that could work for my non i-phone as well.
I can not stop pinning from and tweeting about gorgeous this new-to-me-site.
My favorite store now stocks a party tent!!! In perfect Anthropologie style.
Someday, I would love to throw a party at the beautiful Alder Manor.
