The Cocktail Hour

I am a firm believer in 'The Cocktail Hour.'  It doesn't have to be anything elaborate - one drink that is of significance to the bride and groom, garnished with a slice of fruit is not only simple, but stunning and special. 


Flowers of the Week: 3.5.12

Happy Monday!  Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend - I did...even though it involved a lot of painting, it was still great.

As always, I love to start the week off with flowers.  And of course, Kate at Flowerwild is one of my absolute fave designers - as witnessed below.

Here's looking forward to a great week.



The Cocktail Hour
I adore the simplicity of this welcome area.  Programs, fans and a glass of lemonade or iced tea are all that are needed to welcome your guests in style. 

Even if you are using plastic cups, it can still look fabulous - as proof above.


On the Table: Red, White + Wood

Hi there lovelies!  How is your Wednesday going?  Mine is just peachy really ;-)  I know I still have a lot of explaining to do, but I just don't have the time right now to do so...and you just might not want to hear all that I have to say.  So while I still contemplate explaining my disappearance for almost two months, I thought I would still pop in and leave you with some lovely inspiration!

I know we are in the midst of Winter...hello highs of 52...and everyone is looking forward to Spring, but when I saw these pictures, I just couldn't help but think how fabulous Fall really is...
Here's a closer look at those table names...
On the Table
Eeks - fabulously rustic and Fall.  Here are a couple more details for you to devour...
I gotta tell you that I am loving all of this, aren't you?  And the leaves on the floor are one of those details that sends me over the moon ;-)

It's Friday...And I'm Back!

I know, I know...I have a lot of explaining to do!  But that will just have to wait until Monday ;-)  As today I wanted to ease back into blogging and end the week on a positive, if not bright, note.  And...
my loves - so let's celebrate with some flowers...
Here's to a bright new year, and future for LCW!  Happy Friday lovelies...I super sure did miss you.

~ Ciao
