the short list

It is the grand finale of the J.Crew fashion show! Today it’s all about the bride but we’re keeping this short.

Call me biased (because I did it), but I love a short wedding dress. I’m a leg girl, and after our dreadful winter, don’t be afraid to show them off this summer! Here are J.Crew’s collection of short bridal dresses. short dressesBride

What about you… Did you go short? Would you? What about shorts? I’d love to know. C0772_NA6434_m

a shower for the bride

It is Aimee and Caylum’s wedding in three weeks and to celebrate the bride, we hosted a shower this weekend at my place and I thought it would be fun to share some pictures of the day.

Here is the invitation I made which was sent out by email. Shower-1We started the day off at the spa getting mani and pedis.IMG_0669Then we went back to the house. The evening was spent with a great group of Aimee’s friends, family and family-to-be.

The baby’s breath will be at the wedding so we filled the house with arrangements.DSC_0037And added some corks because the wedding will be at a vineyard.DSC_0039I made a banner for the shower and wedding venue – plus, it’s a reminder of the hashtag for the event. #caylumlovesaimeeDSC_1016Erin made the Barefoot Contessa’s Rossinis as the custom cocktail.DSC_1028And she made three amazing quiche (mushroom and fontana cheese, spinach red pepper and feta, and arugula and bacon)DSC_1029The menu also included

  • Hot goat cheese dip and baguettes
  • Roasted red pepper dip with pita
  • Green salad with lemon dressing
  • Bruchetta
  • Brownies (Aimee’s mom’s recipe)
  • Feta, mint, water melon and tomato, basil,bocconcini skewers*
