Fall has just breezed by like the rest of 2018 and I wanted to share some favorite moments before we dive right into Christmas!

This bat display on our mantle was so fun to have up all of October. It was a hit on Instagram and even Domino reposted it!

Almost everything was purchased at Michaels including the bats, these spiders and straw pumpkins…I loved the boho vibe of those and the fact that they are relevant for Thanksgiving as well.

Vegan Pumpkin Spice from Tellers was necessary on several occasions!

A little refresh on the other side of the living room

Mandatory pumpkin patch visit

We had a little family Halloween party, our neighborhood is a hot spot for trick or treating!

I took down our Halloween decor the next day because we did engagement photos around the house

We had some perfect gardening weather and starting working on our outdoor space 

Pre engagement pics (can’t wait to share when we get them back!)

Sun coast Food & Wine fest in Lakewood Ranch was super fun last weekend

Hope your fall season has been a blast as well!

A few weekends ago my best gals treated me to an amazingggg weekend at the Four Seasons in Orlando.  It was the perfect way to celebrate (& relax) before my upcoming wedding.  I couldn’t resist making an invitation and came up with this fun/funny print to represent the weekend.  I had it printed on tote bags and Sarah helped me fill them with the cutest items…


Inside the bag: Kitty ears // heart sunglasses // custom SK tumbler c/o shindigz// custom Sk print on a coffee travel cup c/o shindigz// kitty eye mask // kitty face masks (these were hysterical!)/rose gold mask/ sephora coconut mask // Lila Rose and La Croix // ring pops and champagne bears by sugarfina // rx bars // custom SK designed chapstickc/o shindigz}


Champagne, brunch, kitties, etc…all the important things…

The Four Seasons welcomed us with this beautiful spread of champagne and macarons!

I wore this fun Filly Boo dress from Free People (on sale now!), Rainbow Raye shoes from Revolve (also on sale now) & floral clutch I got in NYC at Anthropologie last month 🙂

Hanging out by the beautiful pool

They couldn’t resist embarrassing me in Anthropologie, posing with my products. Really though, I love how excited they get to see my illustrations in stores 🙂

Saturday we had brunch at Briar Patch in Winter Park and walked around the Farmers Market. Then we headed to Disney Springs for some shopping.

There was a Halloween trick or treating event which was pretty funny to people watch and see all the costumes. This police offer definitely chose the right group of girls to ask for a photo with lol

These two and their opposite styles! Ha. 

Cami’s look // Liz’s look

It was nice to just hang at the hotel since there is so much to do there.  We went to the rooftop bar, coffee shop and of course made use of the amazing spa!

The four seasons seriously went over and beyond.  Best service ever period.  They left the sweetest note and these Missoni mouse ears in the room for me!

Thank you Four Seasons + Sadie, Heather, Cami, Liz & Sarah for the best weekend! 

Until next time…

I created these fun watercolor leaf tags as a printable! Whoo! I love Halloween / fall so much and have been experimenting with decor and crafts this year!  I think they would be perfect place cards for Halloween or even Thanksgiving.  I couldn’t decide if I wanted to write directly on them or not so I used a black tag to write names.  You could write over the leaf or even on the back to keep it more simple.  I used twine to tie them on and wrapped extra around the stems to look like a pumpkin vine.

Download the printable here and be sure to tag me @shannonkirsten if you use them!

Happy October! 

Can’t even believe I’m typing those words. How?!  I’m trying to look forward at all the happy things to come and everything I love about this season (plus our WEDDING around the corner!)

These are a few of my favorite fall designs, all available in the shop.

Wishing you all the pumpkin spice lattes and crisp fall mornings.

I can’t believe I have yet to share this beautiful Santa Barbara wedding from last year.  The bride and groom put so much thought into personalizing each event and we had a fun time working on all of the stationery together! From the bright Rehearsal Fiesta with maraca place cards to the map beach towels given to guests when they first arrived for a beach party and not too mention the insanely beautiful greenery filled reception…so many perfect and unique details! Scroll for some highlights of the weekend and stationery items!
