Mason Jar Chandelier and some other of my loves...

I saw this image on pinterest this morning and fell in love immediately. I'm crazy about mason jars especially when they are used in creative for this rustic chandelier. I so wish I had the skills and the patience to make one for myself. I've got a stock pile of mason jars in my basement just waiting to be used for something like this! I love the juxtaposition of the lace table runner and feminine flowers with the rustic table and birch candles. Hello gorgeousness! To see more beautiful details from this shoot, click here...

I have to admit one of the reasons why I have been so absent from my blog the last few months is Pinterest. I am totally obsessed with getting on Pinterest 24/7 to check out the latest ideas on entertaining, home decor, food, fashion, etc! It has become my number one go to for inspiration and I find myself wondering how I ever got along without it? Here are a few screen shots of my boards....

AND here are a few of my latest pins....

Love this DIY clothespin banner...

and this GORG table runner...

AND, this festive paper package...

Crushing on Coral

Lately, I've been seriously crushing on the color coral. I just can't get enough of this gorgeous warm hue that hints at summer. Whether I am decorating my table or picking out a color for my toes, coral is definitely at the top of my list. What color are you drawn to this season??.....

Fringe Garland

I've been dying to make fringe garland for some time now, but of course something always distracts me and it never happens. I just love this party element and think it is perfect in bright pop colors for Cinco de Mayo.  Hope you have a fabulous weekend....I'll be enjoying a mexican feast tomorrow night with a margarita in hand!

Normally when I host a dinner party my color scheme is pretty subdued, so I LOVE it when Cinco de Mayo rolls around and I can bring bright pops of color to the table. I am going crazy over this gorgeous tablescape from Hey Look. You know when you see this colorful table you are in for a real fiesta!
