Love me some succulents...

Lately, I have become obsessed with succulents. I think they are perfect for a summer centerpiece! Can you believe that tomorrow is June?? Where has spring gone?? The forecast is calling for 90 degree weather here...I think summer has officially begun.

Summer Chic

I spotted these chic summer plates on Z gallerie's web site, and I just can't get them out of my head! I love the playful colors and fun pattern. These would be perfect for dining al fresco this summer.

I knew I loved Lavender and I thank the beautiful image above for reminding me. I've really been wanting to get some colored wine glasses. I just think they are so festive and can add a really fun pop to a table. And, of course, they are perfect for a party!

Breakfast or Dessert?

My gigantic sweet tooth is wondering if this "donuts and coffee" cake from Sprinkle Bakes might pass for breakfast?? Hmmm, probably not, but wouldn't it make for a great start to your day??!

A few of my favorite things...

This Spanish hacienda style wedding had me at hello! It incorporates a few (well more than a few) of my favorite things....

1.  I love me some purple! How fabulous are those wine glasses?

2. I am crazy about incorporating food into floral arrangements. It adds depth through the various textures.

3. For those who love to read....use books to add height and interest to a floral arrangement.

4. You know how obsessed I am with desserts....and bunting, banners, flags, etc.

Whiskey Bar

Now this would be a party my husband would LOVE to attend. As for me, I'm not one to drink whiskey. However, I appreciate a great idea when I see one. I am definitely keeping this idea in my inspiration files!

Get your Margarita on!

I am totally digging this inspiration board from Camille Styles! A) Because I love all of Camille's party inspiration...you must check out her blog and B) I LOVE LOVE LOVE Cinco de Mayo!!

My hubby and I have been whipping up margaritas a lot recently. I don't know if it is his Texas roots, my obsession with mexican food or the warm weather coming, but we just can't seem to get enough of that delicious cocktail. Here is our recipe (makes two cocktails) ....

Mix the following ingredients into a cocktail shaker:

2 shots of Tequila
1 shot of Grand Marnier (or Cointreau)

Shake and then pour into two cocktail glasses with ice. Add 1/2 shot of orange juice and 1/2 shot of lime juice to each glass....maybe more depending on how strong you like your drink! And of course, don't forget to garnish with salt and a lime wedge.
