for my last of the spring party DIY posts, i wanted to share the focal point of the party with you guys! originally, we talked about doing a big flower wall, which has obviously been done before. BUT THEN… a miracle happened. we decided on with leaves instead.
remember how i said we made a ton of raw edged linen napkins for our wedding? well it’s been super nice to have 50 laying around my apartment (and my moms house, she uses them for almost every dinner party now) – so i decided to stamp some for the spring lunch!
as i said last week, this week i’m going to share all the projects i made for our spring party last week! up first, i made little seed packets to go on every place setting. i thought this would make for the perfect little spring party favor – and duh. they’re so easy.
today i’m introducing you to abby of prospect goods! by now i’m positive you’ve come across her gorgeous modern piñatas and party supplies, but you may not know there’s an adorable girl behind them!
FRIDAAAAY! we don’t have a ton of plans this weekend, besides mothers day : we’re gonna make my mom some creme brulee french toast and mimosas — and i’m trying to convince myself not to get a little teeny tattoo. but i’ve been wanting one and it’s very hard to resist. (i have three that i regret already. oops) anyway – have a great weekend and say hi to your moms!

you know how sometimes you get married and you get lots of beautiful serving items from your registry, but then you just never use them because entertaining is such a thing? so i decided i’m going to try to entertain like 5% more than i do now. with spring here, there are lots of pretty new things in the produce section. so i made a simple and easy menu of a dope charcuterie tray, a fresh citrus salad, and for dessert : winesicles made from kendall-jackson pinot gris!
i had my friend molly co-style the party with me — we kept the table pretty neutral besides the flowers and the food. we scattered airplants along the table, and i DIYed some patterned napkins and seed packet favors (which i’ll do posts on next week!) we also decided to make it very springy, so we created a real leaf backdrop as the focal point. i’ll also do a post on that!
gideon made the best looking charcuterie plate i’ve ever seen — so i will from now on be making him make that for event we host.
the winesicles were so good. i was worried they’d taste a little strong but i could seriously eat 5 of them. the vintner’s reserve pinot gris was the peeerfect taste for popsicles. and then fall asleep for the rest of the day. you can head over to the kendall-jackson blog to see the recipe!

if you follow me on instagram, then you already know a few weeks ago i drove up north to my brothers wedding. gideon couldn’t go, so i went with my dad and stepmom and we had three full days to get from LA to the sonoma area for the wedding.
our first stop was in pismo beach — we’d been sitting in traffic for hours, so we were stoked to pull over in this cute little town and have an early dinner. we had clam chowder at splash cafe (and clam strips) and it was as good as everyone told me it would be. we then just walked around the town and down the pier a little before getting back in the car and heading to cambria.
in cambria, we stayed at the sand pebbles inn. it was cute and inexpensive, and the rooms have fireplaces and a cookie. the next morning we had our complimentary breakfast and walked down to the beach before heading to hearst castle — which was only about 10 minutes away.
i was attempting to post this a week or two ago for mothers day — but time totally got away from me. so while this would make the perfect easy little handmade mother’s day gift, if you don’t have time to make for mom day, you can make it for mom birthday instead. keep reading
