What I'm Loving

I'm going to go ahead and apologize, for this post is super random! 
Here's what I'm loving with week:

1. Throwing my best friend's wedding shower!
 
I helped host Kelsey's wedding shower on Friday and we had a blast! We decided to have a "Backyard BBQ" themed shower. I designed these invitations and printed them on thin cardboard paper...
 
 
Mason jars made an appearance, along with these adorable red paper straws from Sur la Table:
 
 
For food, we had BBQ sliders, fresh veggies, watermelon, and corn on the cob.  
I even baked these cupcakes to go along with the theme:
 
 
{All I did for these was add red food coloring to store bought icing and pipe them onto the cupcakes. I placed the black dots with cookie icing, and then made cupcake holders from scrapbooking paper and scalloped scissors}

If only I had taken pictures of me and the bride-to-be!
 
2. This super cute calendar download for May

I downloaded this Ashley Brooke calendar to my iPhone, but you can also print it out for your wall. Isn't it the cutest?


Download it here.

3. This coral tote cooler

For summer, I'm obsessed with picnics... and even more obsessed with packing them. This coral tote is insulated and perfect for keeping your lunch cool!

Get yours here!

4. Lake days with friends

As graduation nears (it's SUNDAY!), I'm enjoying just goofing off and spending time with my closest friends. We recently took a trip to the lake and had so much fun. I love you guys!


I'm still packing up everything and trying to get ready for Sunday's graduation, but I have a couple of fun posts planned for the next week, so stay tuned! :)

Love, Cait

  11. I like the coral cooler. this would be great for a trip to the farmers' market - I like to buy cheeses and produce, which do better if kept cool.
