A Birthday Party

by on Nov.04, 2011, under Other Lovelies, Parties & Gatherings

A very 1920s-feeling candelabra (snapped up at a flea market a few days before!)

I had grand visions of a 1920s-themed dinner party for my birthday.

But it’s really hard to capture the era’s glamour when you live in a green wooden house with white walls that screams “country,” when I need it to purr “decadence.”

I thought about buying oodles of crystal-y beaded drapes and hanging them throughout the house – so that my pals would brush past them at the champagne table or walk through them to go out on the deck – but I decided against it.

I’ve got a wedding to save for, dammit!

Walls of crystals are not a necessity, I kept telling myself.

Still, I wish I would’ve had them…

Romantic Flowers…

by on May.13, 2011, under Other Lovelies, Parties & Gatherings

We’re throwing a big party tomorrow. I’ll yap about the party later, I’m sure, but for now, I wanted to share the oh-so-pretty flowers I got for the shindig. I picked ’em up at a ¬†wholesale flower mart – the place where all the florists and wedding planners source their flowers, which they, of course, sell to us laypeople at a markup of 1,000%. This was my first time ever buying flowers wholesale. It’s hugely gratifying and life-changing.

Peonies, ranunculus, hydrangea – some of my faves! Actually, I really wanted cockscomb (they’re weird-looking and wavy), but those greedy little wedding planners with their team of assistants and sour faces bought up everything! I was lucky to get my hands on anything more than baby’s breath.
