Parties to Pretties – Dinner in the Sand

by Emmadime

Being that Jordan is back in California and I have been spending loads of time at the beach, an ocean side meal felt appropriate for this week’s Parties to Pretties! Toting your dinner and table setting out to the beach is such a unique experience – if you’re near the coast, I highly recommend giving it a shot. Don’t forget some comfy pillows to sit on & a scarf to keep you warm after the sun goes down.

Parties to Pretties – Fade Away

This tablecloth blew my color loving mind – what a dramatic piece that drives the entire mood of the room! I couldn’t help but indulge in the ombre goodness. I am very tempted to try dip-dying on my own on a smaller scale – Maybe napkins!

Parties to Pretties – Early Morning Brunch

by Emmadime

Starting your day off right is pretty important so why not do it with tasty food and friends. Brunch is always a good idea – especially if it’s casual, calm, & simple. I recently attended a brunch hosted by Kinfolk Magazine and experienced exactly this. I thought I would share what the aesthetic was like at this particular gathering. Enjoy.

Parties to Pretties – A Hint of Gold

by Emmadime

I have never seen so much inspiration, color, and sparkle in one place than I did at Cream in Los Angeles!! That neon “enjoy” sign would complete any room or party if you ask me. In an attempt to mimic the tabletops we see here, I put together a little round up inspired by the colors in the images and then threw in a touch of gold to compliment it – CHEERS!!

Parties to Pretties – A Booth of Smiles!

by Emmadime

I know that photo booths aren’t foreign to anyone these days – they are almost a staple at weddings and/or the local bar. You can’t go wrong with some silly props ( and creepy masks ), bright colors, good friends, and lots of smiles!!
