Board#96: Garden Party

Ohmigod Christmas is next week!!!!! And I am sooo unprepared but I hope to change all that this week! I styled and hosted my friends baby shower on Saturday and had a fabulous time, but boy entertaining is exhausting... wiped me out for the rest of the weekend (wasn't helped by my husband and the baby daddy getting worse for wear for the remainder of Saturday and the tropical weather conditions we had here yesterday.... muggy sticky weather before Christmas? What's up with that?). I have a sneak peek of the event coming up shortly so check back soon!!
Today's board is all about a summery garden party, the kind where as a guest you're excited to throw on a pretty summer dress, grab a cardigan/wrap once it cools down later in the evening, dine alfresco and dance in the twilight. In fact I remember the wedding of the baby mumma spoken of above when we all sat along the banks of the kerikeri inlet for the evening and just took it all in. The sort of relaxed, chilled out affair that we all love here in New Zealand. But just because it's relaxed and informal doesn't mean you can't infuse plenty of details into it that lift it from an ordinary weekend summer gathering to something a little more special and unique. Those little personal touches as well as the vows you take are what make it distinctly yours.
