I'm definitely in a whimsical, romantic mood today. I have been staring at this photo for hours. The lights, the big white tent and the pennant garlands...everything about this inspires me to make something beautiful...still figuring out what that is...
Just something beautiful to look at, beautiful colors, amazing atmosphere. I really admire when a photograph can capture more than just color (though that's good enough for me). It's images like these that really take you somewhere and make you think up a story in your head. These images make me want to put on a puffy white sundress and sip a mimosa by the water.
i know these pictures have been making their rounds already on the blogs, but i couldn't resist sharing them here. Pictured is the dessert table from Sunday Suppers by Karen Mordechai, photographed by Aran Goyoaga of Cannelle et Vanille.

these crocheted beads caught my eye on etsy this morning for being so unique and interesting. Their shape and of course their material make them really stand out, and as always, i love seeing people experiment with materials in unconventional ways:

I absolutely LOVE everything about Sprinkles Cupcakes, from the dots on top of their cupcakes, to their kraft paper boxes lined in pink on the inside. Their menus are absolutely beautiful, they have a great system that translates so well onto everything from the paper menus, the store decor and the cupcakes themselves. It doesn't hurt that their red velvet cupcake is my absolute favorite thing in the world.
I bought these antique victorian calling cards at the Brimfield textiles show in may. How cool is it that people used to hand these out? I totally want to make my own. The type is to die for, and the red border around one of them is so unique and interesting.

There's something so beautiful and rustic about this MOR packaging. I love the use of wood, which often makes packages look sturdy and masculine, paired with soft colors and patterns, it definitely makes it feel a lot more whimsical and delicate. Enjoy!
