so long 2012!

I recently designed some lovely New Year's themed graphics for a shoot with Andrea Gray Harper {of Gray Harper Event Maker} and Jade McCully {of Jade + Matthew Take Pictures}. The shoot featured gold, glitter {surprise, surprise} and neon blue, macarons, champagne, noise blowers, what more could you ask for on NYE? Anyway, the shoot was featured on The Knotty Bride, so check it out! I hope it helps with some of your NYE planning! 
And so ends another year. 2012 has been filled with extreme highs and a few incredible lows, but I feel like there's been a sort of fitting end to it. It's the first year where I truly feel like it could be a fresh start, a clean slate. Generally I roll my eyes at this sentiment, but circumstances as they are, going into 2013 will be a new beginning, and one I'm quite looking forward to. 
I hope you all have a lovely and safe New Year's. See you in 2013!

merry merry.

Jacob and I have had an uncharacteristically somber holiday season thus far {as much of country has,so we can't complain much}, but we're determined to have a merry christmas with friends and family. We're heading up to New York today where I plan on doing nothing but eating, sitting by the fire, and drinking eggnog. If all of those things get done, I'll be very happy girl. 

Have a very Merry Christmas!

2012 gift guides {for her}

This year I'm into pretty and cozy little things. If I could, I would probably just ask for blankets, slippers, and pjs, but I suppose that would be a little silly. Still, it's on my mind, and when I put all of these things together, I realized the theme. Oh well, at least there's a hot pink satchel to balance it out. 

1.Polka Dot leggings; 2. Wishbone Jewelry holder; 3. Cupcakes and Cashmere; 4. What Kate Ate; 5. Essie nail polish; 6. Kelsey Riley's Downton Abbey scarf; 7. Jersey Romper; 8. Ranunculus iphone case; 9. Hot Pink Cambridge Satchel; 10. Topaz Ring; 11. Anchor Mug; 12. Anchor Scarf; 13. Toast Slippers; 14. Rifle desk Calendar; 15. Hudson Bay Blanket; 16.

Where has the time gone? Seriously, we're about a week away from Christmas and I'm not sure exactly how we got here. I'm finished with most of my gifts, which is a relief, but I still have a lot to do before Jacob and I make the drive up to New York. 

This weekend, however, will be spent baking and working on fun new projects. The temperature in Savannah has dropped below 65 so my hands are constantly cold and I've been drinking a lot of hot beverages, I'm thinking it may be time for hot chocolate though, as that's the one thing I haven't really gotten to yet this season. Perhaps Sunday.... 

I hope your weekend is lovely and filled with lots of holiday cheer! 

While you're sipping on hot chocolate: 
1. Great tumbler I lost about 3 hours to the other day. 
2. So excited for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to host the Golden Globes, it may bring me out of the deep depression I've been in ever since finding out Amy and Will split... still not over it. 
3. Speaking of things I'm excited for... GIRLS.
4.15 Hollywood Heroines, beautiful.
5. Lovely, lovely gold and glitter wedding {i know, both of those things together, my head almost exploded} I helped with {1,2}. Design and event planning from Andrea Gray Harper of GHEM, and photos by Jade & Matthew Take Pictures. So much fun!

2012 gift guides {for the hostess}

While it's not mandatory to bring a gift with you to each party or dinner gathering, it's a very nice gesture for the host, especially at this time of year. Parties don't get thrown together by themselves, so it's just a nice way to say thank you. I don't think they need to be anything major,  a bottle of wine or flowers is always lovely, but once in a while it's nice to bring something different. Any of these fine items would make this hostess quite pleased. 

1. Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook; 2. Royal Lavender & Rose Syrup; 3. Chalkboard Spice Jars; 4. Gold Cake Stand; 5. Mrs. Lillien's Cocktail Swatchbook; 6. Confetti System Ornaments; 7. Honeycomb Flute; 8. Mason Jar Cocktail Shaker; 9. Rewind Candle; 10. Measuring Hedgies;  11. Perc Coffee; 12. Gold Salt Cellar

Christmas gifts have been stressing me out more than usual this year, I had resigned myself to the idea that everyone would be getting photos of our wedding, but that seemed a little boring. So, I poured over websites and blog guides to find the perfect gift for the special ones in my life.

1. Hudson Manhattan Whiskey; 2. State Print; 3. Ron Swanson Mug; 4. Gold Jigger; 5. Joe Beef Cookbook; 6. J.Crew Sweater; 7. Brooklyn Beer Making Kit; 8. Royal Crown Pomade; 9. Beer/Food Calendar; 10. Shun Chef's Knife; 11. Billy Reid Tee; 12. Humidor; 13. Gold Cheese knife set
