Hey friends! The Cavs game was WAY too STRESSFUL so I decided to edit photos from a recent party and share a few with you instead of solely watching the game! A few weekends ago my friends Danielle, Shibani and I hosted “a cocktail sprinkle” for our friends and soon-to-beparents; Reena and Jody.
It was great weather and so we tried to have most of the party on our patio…keeping the bar outside helped encourage everyone outside too. We made one signature bourbon cocktail, had rosé and bubbly as well as fancy beers and waters. For snacks we did a large charcuterie table consisting of cheese & crackers, veggies & green goddess dip, Falafel-chicken wraps and pita & hummus from Nates, so good.
We didn’t do shower games, craft projects…heck, we didn’t even open any gifts that were brought for the Mom, Dad and little baby; instead we wished the couple well, made a few toasts and enjoyed spending time together on the gorgeous summer evening.
The desserts were seriously one of the best part of the evening. From the cupcakes from Luna to the macarons from Whole Foods to many of the tiny party details, it was such a sweet ending to the night. After the cocktail party we sent each guest home with their own baggy of girly-hued, french macarons. I think everyone left happy and full.
Reena and Jody, you guys are gonna be rocking cool parents. Your little babes is so lucky to have landed with some of Cleveland’s best parents around…super lucky little one. We love you! Thank you for allowing us three to plan your entire shower/sprinkle, we were honored! Happy “sprinkle.” Happy new CLE baby. Happy summer parties outside! HAPPY FRIDAY!!!
Hello & Happy Monday everyone. Wasn’t this weekend the best? We spent so much time outdoors soaking in the sun while doing yard work and prepping for summer. We also snuck in some crafting, time with friends, a few meals out, a 5k, some shopping and a few good naps. It was an incredible two days that I am so thankful for.
Today I am proud to share with you an event I hosted to celebrate some very creative Mom’s right here in Cleveland. Sponsored by Pat Catan’s the baby brunch was held at the magical Borrow Rentals; a space filled with vintage furniture and one-of-a-kind party pieces.
TGIF! It’s been a very busy and fun week. Lots of meetings about cool upcoming projects, and many different partnership opportunities. Halloween and the holidays are slowly sneaking up on us, there is a chill in the air and I wore tights and boots yesterday! I am already dreaming of sugarplums and candy canes.
Today I wanted to thank everyone who came out to last weekends event at Kate Spade in Beachwood Mall. We had a wonderful turnout, it was great to meet so many readers and visit with friends. I think everyone enjoyed the little make and take fortune cookies that you could dip in frosting and make the sparkly with edible sugar sparkle. The green tea and sparkling water were perfect for a little pick me up while shopping the latest Shanghai Collection. All in all it was a great evening out!

Morning Cleveland! Hope you had a great summer weekend. I know most of you were out celebrating on Friday night with the announcement of the return of “King James!” Even with a newborn at home, we had a bit of bubbles at our house to kick off the weekend and celebrate his return “home.” Bust out your apparel, it time to embrace your wine and gold…we can’t wait to see him at the Q this fall.
Speaking of fall have you secured your tickets to this years September 5th, Roar Along the Shore; boat ride and evening concert extravaganza along our Lake Erie coast?

What better excuse is there to wear nautical from head to toe than an an evening boat ride with friends along our Lake Erie coast?
For ticket information and to purchase yours seat before they sell out check out the Facebook event here.
Happy Monday to you. Here’s to a great week ahead.
So the other day someone tagged me in a liebster; which can best be described as chain mail for bloggers. Sharing a list of answers to questions assigned to you from the sender. While I often don’t participate in these types of posts, Kate Hardy’s email was too sweet not to play along, so here goes nothing.
I didn’t choose all of her unique questions, instead picking up some of her original topics, I still think it is a good little representation of me for this chilly Tuesday; enjoy.
Now it’s my turn…I nominate Allison, Danielle and Reena to answer either some of my answers above or a few of these new questions…
1. Wine, Craft Beers or Bourbon?
2. If you could jet set tomorrow, where would you go?
4. What is your St Patricks Day tradition in the CLE?
5. Have you been to Tina’s and what was your karaoke song?
