Well it had to happen….the weekend came to an end. It’s back to work.
I think I mentioned on Friday that my 2 sisters and I put on a shower for my niece who is getting married in August. We got there early Sat morning to set up [it started at noon] and it was like herding cats….we were all over the place. Lucky for us my sister in law was there to reign us in and we were lighting candles at 11:45.
Indulge me for a family moment….:)
I went to the flower mart on Friday and put together 12 arrangements that afternoon….note to self….get more greenery.
The colors were blush tones….I did larger arrangements for the head table and some smaller ones for the 4 tops.
We served Aperol Spritz cocktails and they were pretty good!
Did you know that you can’t find pretty paper anywhere? Nope….not anywhere.
So I got creative and for the menus….
I found a stock photo of flowers and then just did them myself.
I also found blush napkins [12 for 4.99!] and then Sat morning made these cards…..who am I? Seriously.
I am sure there is a picture of me somewhere but I found this dress at Marshalls for 49.00 [I wanted to match the colors] and wore my trusty white lace sneakers.
I’m nothing if not concerned about comfort but with style…haha!
My sister had some posters made of them….
How cute are they….
In other news….on the design front I was working on some styling at a project….
Some before shots….
Added shelves and shiplap
Adding just a few elements
This is the prettiest butlers pantry leading to the outdoor living and pool area.
This gorgeous window is opposite of the shelves.
On the cooking front…..don’t get excited….I use the term cooking lightly…..here is a tidbit for you.
I have posted this before but I feel like you weren’t paying attention.
#1. Trader Joe’s salmon. Cast Iron pan. No spray. Season with some sea salt…..etc.
#2. Veggies. Broccoli, cauliflower, tomatoes and brussel sprouts. Season with olive oil, sea salt, pepper and what ever your heart desires.
#3. PUT IN COLD OVEN…..FISH ON TOP AND VEGGIES UNDERNEATH. Set the temp to broil.
#4. Set the timer for 20 min. Do not open the oven.
#5. Spread a little of this on the fish! [Trader Joes]
There you have been schooled.
I’ll let you know when I start my cooking classes….hahahaha.
