New BHLDN Party Supply Line

I’m very excited to see the BHLDN line of wedding accessories and decorations that came out today. BHLDN is Anthropologie’s wedding line that launched earlier this year. Very pretty things that married women everywhere will be buying for regular old parties.

Vintage Party Supplies

I’ve been finding lots of pretty party supplies at the flea market lately. Here are some vintage paper flowers with silk ribbon, hand dyed lanterns and birthday candles in the prettiest shades I’ve ever seen. I’m in love with the lanterns, sometimes you have to buy these little things because they are just too beautiful to part with. (By the way if you want directions to the Paris Flea Market go here.)


When I go to a new country one of the things I like to do is go to a party supply store and fill a bag with party supplies to take home (proof here). Usually (like everywhere) it is cheap stuff made in China but every country has different versions that you can only get in that country. On our trip to Germany I stocked up on the offerings at the local version of Target.

What kind of souvenirs do you bring home when you travel?

Happy Weekend!

This weekend is packed! I’m hitting the flea market, going to a birthday party of a 2-year old, Paul and I are going on our first date in Paris, and on Sunday we are renting a car and taking a roadtrip to visit my friend in Germany for a few days. It is just a five hour drive from here. What are you doing this weekend? (ps: Babble links below.)

These photos of these vintage party supplies are from the this awesome Etsy shop and was found via Joy and Abby’s pins. (I love vintage party supplies.)

I write for’s Family Style. Here are my posts this week.

These are awesome! Etsy strikes again!
When Paul saw this book he was sad that he didn’t write it.

These make the best presents (I gave one to Paul when we were dating.)
My parenting mistake I made the first day I brought Moses home. Consider yourself warned.

Rose Party Surprise

You can shoot rose petals or confetti or other miscellaneous items out of this little machine. So Fun! $40 each. This is an affordable version of the confetti machines that cost hundreds and thousands of dollars. I love stuff like this.
