Donut Craze

I'm sure you all have noticed this sudden surge of donuts going around. I mean let's talk about that cronut which I'm still dying to try (Dominque Ansel, hook it up!). But anyway, I've seen donuts everywhere lately from the regular sprinkled donuts kind to donut cakes. Yes, I said donut cakes. So I thought I would show you guys some regular and funky iterations of the donut and hopefully you'll add a donut to your next party or dinner. I mean, how about those balloons and piñata? Also, check Jordan of Oh Happy Day's post on how to throw a fancy donut party! And can we all just say that thank god the cupcake fad is over?

Hanging Floral

I love finding out new ways to use flowers at events and parties. And lately I've noticed flowers hung from ceilings or used as chandeliers. I think it's such great idea and definitely an eye catching moment in any space. DIY anyone? The fourth image is actually a pendant light. Now, how amazing is that?

Vision Board: November

I'm sure you've all heard of the law of attraction. If not, it states that positive thoughts bring positive results and negative thoughts bring negative results. In other words, think positively and the universe will listen. Anyway, one way I've heard that helps with this is is the use of vision boards. Making vision boards are not only a fun DIY project but placing it where you would see it every day helps with the positive thinking. My approach to this is making monthly vision boards of things that are inspiring me and things I hope to accomplish within the month. So, below you'll find my November vision board and a brief explanation on each of my goals. I hope this is something that inspires you also and helps you visualize some amazing things!

One: Blogging blogging blogging. I will definitely be focusing on my blog more and posting much more often. Promise!
Two: I used to run a lot a couple of months ago and suddenly stopped. I've made way too many excuses not to run anymore but now I'm definitely going back at it. P.S. those are my actual running shoes.
Three: This is a great article from Refinery 29 on saving money which I'm horrible at, like horrible.
Four: Flower arrangements. Something I've been wanting to try for a while now. Looking forward to the challenge and I'll probably share my experience on here, IF it all goes well.
Five: Not a bad mantra to live bad right? Major style renovation currently happening.
Six: Something major happened in October so I'm totally clearing out my head and focusing on my future and goals.
Seven: I've been wanting to read Lean In since it came out and I never got around to it. I've heard Sheryl Sandberg talk about it so many times and she states a lot of valid points about women in the workforce. I really look forward to reading it!

Tablescape Re-do: 2

Rue Magazine recently celebrated their 3rd anniversary with the help of party planners Confetti Pop. I truly love the simplicity of this tablescape and it is extremely easy to replicate yourself. My favorite elements are the florals, the wood and silver flatware (you have no idea how hard it was to find ones like them) and the striped table runner. In my re-do, I decided to use gold flatware and chargers, I think they would go extremely well with the runner and other elements on the table. For the table not be all wood (or gold, in my case), Confetti Pop used a black and white striped runner which I thought was a great idea to cut it off yet bring all the elements together. I could go on and on about other elements from this tablescape I loved but check out more images from the party here!

12 Fabulous Cakes

Who doesn't love a great cake? I'm not very picky on what flavors are used, red velvet, rum, vanilla are all fine with me. I love a good dessert at the end of an event that's why I think a dessert table is extremely necessary when planning them. Whether it's cake, cupcakes, or candy everyone's sweet tooth should be fulfilled by the end of the party. I've picked out 12 cakes that I think are fabulous for a wedding, birthday, or any event. I can't decide on a favorite but I do love numbers 1, 7, and 9. Which are your favorites?
