Pinterest Favorites

Summer’s heat is here and it’s be relentless. In addition, we are getting smoke from forest fires all over California. The heat and haze has me longing for cooler, clearer days. I’ve pulled a few Pinterest favorites featuring crisp whites and cool greens. A palette I adore.

Darling Pink Peonies Picnic Birthday Party

 

Pink peonies are favorite, so I had to share this adorable picnic birthday party of little Mila I spotted on Pinterest.

How cute are the little gold crowns on each chair, fringe streamers and diy pinata letters spelling out the birthday girl’s name?!

Love the little biodegradable  birch wood plates from eco-gecko topped with kumquats. And check out those gorgeous pink peonies in full bloom.

Donuts instead of cake or cupcakes? Why not.

At the end of the table a pair of drink dispensers from Pottery Barn are placed for guests to serve themselves. So simple.

Oh (faux) Christmas Tree

Yes I did. Call me crazy. I’ve decorated the Christmas tree already. With Thanksgiving running so late this year, I decided “what the heck!” Don’t worry though, it won’t be a pine-needle-less, fire hazard by the holiday. It’s an artificial tree sent to me by Tree Classics. I’m super impressed with the quality – it’s hard to tell it’s not real even when you are in the same room. The only thing I miss about having a live tree is the lovely pine scent that fills the house.

I selected the  7 1/2′ classic Fraser tree with clear lights because of it’s narrow profile – great for small rooms. Love that the lights were already on the tree and that they are LED! Assembly took me about 30 minutes from start to finish. I did have to pull in my hubby to put on the top layers though.

This year I went with a crisp white and rich gold color palette for the tree decorations. Tons of white feathers were placed throughout the tree and along the top of the Chinese cabinet. I also added a new new items this year such as the fab faux fur tree skirt (above), owl snowglobe (next to the white peonies above) and felt snowflake ornaments (below) I picked up at West Elm!
