Spanish Garden at Mission Inn

I spent some beautiful time at the stunning Mission Inn Resort located in Howey-in-the-hills this past week and loved every second, though it’s still so warm out! I love all the Spanish tile, textured walls and beautiful greenery surrounding this beautiful venue. I hope you are inspired by our Spanish editorial!

Get together at home with Lafayette & Rushford

Since a kid I’ve always enjoyed a tasty vanilla pudding. If you want to relish in the memories, here’s a creamy easy recipe to whip up! How adorable are these mini sized dessert shooters? Serves the perfect amount for an after dinner sweet tooth! Check out some awesome items shopped at Lafayette & Rushford!

Serving dishes and calendar below can be found at: Lafayette & Rushford

Homemade Vanilla Pudding

2 1/2 cups half and half
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup lightly packed light brown sugar
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 1/2 tablespoons corn starch (add an extra tablespoon for a thicker consistency)

I can’t believe 2017 is almost over with, this year has flown by so fast! Around this time of year we start cranking out some awesome events starting in October from weddings, projects and more! Oh and this adorable desk calendar by Karen Adams Designs!

The perfect cheese spread has a little bit of sweet and salty. My personal favorite cheese choices can be found at Whole Foods, but you can go to your local market and pick as you please! I like to throw some sweet fruits to clear my palette, honey to top off cheeses and a tasty butter cracker!

After guests leave ( or linger perhaps ) I enjoy my favorite cup of coffee to wind down. Coffee doesn’t ask silly questions, coffee understands. And this flamingo mug, must have!

Real Wedding: Stephanie + Michael

Oh joy! Congrats again to my cousin Stephanie and her hubby Michael! The two said “I do” surrounded by family, friends and gorgeous Summer green landscapes at the beautiful Zingerman Cornman’s Farm in Dexter, Michigan! My cousins dress is so unique, she designed + made it herself with fabric from her mothers original wedding dress! Creativity runs in the family! Congrats again you two, cannot wait to share more but for now enjoy the post highlights below! Baby goats were in this wedding, yes, repeat…BABY GOATS!

Bohemian Romance

Every so often my wild and free heart must create something that is straight out of a romantic bohemian dream. Boho style can be as chic as any formal wedding as well, so this wonderful styled to perfection groom and bride made my heart swoon. I hope you get inspired to try different color palettes, out of the box and explore the beautiful venue of The Acre.

Real Wedding: Jaycelyn + Scott

Jayce and Scott were one beautiful couple. I loved designing elements for their beautiful day of love from seating, tablescape and floral. Both venues situated next to each-other in the heart of Winter Park, Florida – Albin Polasek Museum which has the most beautiful European sculpture garden and open air feel to it, perfect for portraits and ceremony. The Capen House next door is a lovely option for reception and guests to spend the night away over dinner underneath the stars! Please take a look at some of my favorites below!
