blah! i've seriously been staring at spreadsheets all day! i needed some pretties to get my brain off of numbers and copying and pasting.  hostess with the mostess to the rescue... it's been too long since i last visited, but that only meant i had plenty of adorable parties to drool over. and since i'm in summer brunch mode, this shabby chic baby shower totally caught my eye with all the great colors and outdoor ideas.

i'm completely obsessed with birdcages right now.  luckily these are pretty abundant at garage sales and so easy to make modern with a can of paint!

great way to beautify some old chairs you might have! use ribbon, or even cut strips of left over fabric.

and my favorite party, the succulents mixed with roses... LOVE!

see you all tomorrow for a fabulously thrifty thursday!
