NATURAL HUES FOR A MONTAUK BEACH WEDDING

A design inspired by natural beach hues for a Montauk wedding.  This design is now in the shop and available for customization.  This was not the final design we used for this client but I really loved these and thought they were a unique take on a beach wedding! I never use brown hues and the chuppah was a fun challenge to create. 

Hope you all have a lovely SHORT week!

MY ARTIST COLLABORATION WITH ANTHROPOLOGIE

I am THRILLED to finally be able to share part of my artist collaboration with Anthropologie! Dream come true!  We’ve been working on this for over a year, so to finally see these products come to life and online has been so fun.  A few of my friends went to our local Anthro these weekend and were sending me snaps of my name on the back of the packaging, just so exciting! I love how beautiful these turned out.  Journals and other office supplies have been something I’ve always wanted to branch into.  

You can shop my products on www.anthropologie.com

WEEKEND BAKING : PEANUT BUTTER OATMEAL COOKIES

Lately it’s been my ritual on Sundays to try a new recipe.  A little twist on oatmeal cookies and omg they turned out so good! Soft, gooey, and easy to make. 

INGREDIENTS: 

1/2 cup softened butter
1/4 cup sugar 
3/4 cup dark brown sugar 
1/2 cup peanut butter 
1 egg 
2 teaspoon vanilla extract 
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour 
1 cup rolled oats 
3/4 cup chocolate chips 
1/2 unsweetened coconut

DIRECTIONS: 

Preheat over to 350.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  In a bowl using a mixer, combine the sugars, softened butter, and peanut butter.  Add in the egg.  Then stir in the vanilla. In a separate bowl mix the flour, salt, baking soda, and oats together and gradually beat into the creamed mixture until well combined.  Stir in the chocolate chips and coconut. Drop spoonfuls of the dough onto the baking sheet about 2 inches apart.  Cook for 7-8 minutes and let cool for a few minutes before moving to a cooling rack. 

ENJOY!

HYDRANGEA WEDDING SUITE WITH A BOLD MONOGRAM

A bright and pretty hydrangea inspired suite for a Massachusetts wedding next month!  This was an extra fun one to work on as I never get requests for hydrangeas and heavily blue designs (until recently, all of a sudden blue is the word!). I really loved how the bold monogram turned out and of course we add their dog to the top.  All pieces were painted using gouache watercolors.  The envelopes were individually hand painted with acrylic. Vintage stamps (for styling purposes) are all from Etsy.

DIY HERB GARDEN

Can I even call this a DIY?! It was so easy and I’m not sure why we didn’t section of an herb garden sooner.  We’ve had some of these guys in pots around the yard for a year and I often used the rosemary and basil to cook.  Now that they are in the ground they are so happy! Scroll through to see some photos from the day we made this and planted everything – cue *helpful* curious puppy…

Supplies Needed: 

Pressure Treated 1″ x 6″ x 8′ Wood

Brass Corner Brackets

Impact Drill 

Circular Saw (you could get them cut at Home Depot instead)

Herbs (we purchased from Home Depot and have rosemary, basil, dill, sage, spearmint, oregano, and peppers) 

Mix of Topsoil & Organic Garden Soil (topsoil is cheaper and the other is nutrient rich to get them started so we mix)

Side note: We plan to add chicken wire around the wood this week as a little bunny has snacked on the dill since these photos were taken. It’s literally completely gone now. lol. So if you have critters you might want to keep them out!
