Bride & Bridesmaid Jewelry I Love


Over the course of wedding planning, I spent a lot of time looking at bridesmaid styles. Their dresses, color palette, styles, hair, jewelry, bouquets. Everything ;) When it comes to bride and bridesmaid jewelry, I think my favorite look is when it's kept simple and sweet. Just enough, but not too much. That's always my jewelry rule of thumb!

If you do a bit larger earring, maybe forgo the necklace. If your neckline is high like below, do a bracelet and earring instead. If you have a sweetheart neckline, throw on a bit of a statement necklace and keep the other accessories smaller (see above!) I'm telling my girls to bring some simple pieces to wear. And if you're looking for a great bridesmaid gift, maybe gift them a piece of jewelry they can wear on your big day!

I will be wearing no necklace (hmm...wonder what that means about my dress?! :)) a dangly pair of earrings and a bracelet. There may or may not be a pretty piece in my hair, too! Okay, can't give it away entirely!

BUT did you know they carry killer home decor, too? And it's free shipping and free returns all the time? Yeah, it's great. I source for my interior design clients here often! Today I'm showing you all my favorite home decor sale picks:

Happy Tuesday!

Bloom Bash Florida: Day Two Recap

Last week I showed you Day One of Bloom Bash Florida, and today we're showing you Day Two! It was a jam-packed two days with some seriously talented and creative women. We are always so humbled and in awe of the women who we have the pleasure of meeting at Bloom. They are eager, smart, passionate, and love people. It's safe to say we love teaching Bloom because of the people we meet! While our workshop is meant to educate and inspire our attendees, we always leave inspired as well.
Day Two started out with a delicious breakfast (chicken and waffles!) and then we headed in to social media. We teach on how to use Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Periscope for your business. We loved having Jen of IHeart Organizing (oh, how I love her!) there to speak on how to best use Pinterest for our businesses. It is always a pleasure to hear from her, as she is incredibly knowledgeable on this subject! We finished the early afternoon with lunch and headshots for our attendees.
Next, it was time to get our hands dirty by playing with flowers! Alicia of Bows + Arrows Flowers taught our floral design session and to describe it as "pretty" would be  a huge understatement. There were flowers everywhere-- including the most beautiful peonies you've ever seen! We always love offering these hands-on sessions because it's important to get out of your normal creative routine to try something new. You'd be surprised how inspiring and life-giving this is!
After teaching sessions on both styling + design and photography, we finished the day with a gorgeous styled wedding shoot. Although it was pouring down buckets of rain on us, we still managed to create some serious beauty. The sweet gals were troopers and they styled and photographed their hearts out. Take a peek at our Day Two! Come back next week for our recap video so you can see it in action.

Ah, how we wish we could go back to Florida for some more fun with these ladies!
If you missed our Florida Bloom Bash, but wanted to attend and are ready to make an investment in your business, there's still hope! We're doing it all again in Southern California this October. Details here!
