this weekend…

Just about every weekend we visit our local farmer’s market – and as much as I love coming home with truly fresh produce (and flowers!), I almost always come home with the same thing weekend after weekend.  Lately, I’ve been inspired by Katy’s CSA adventures to try out some veggies that aren’t part of our regular menu.

So, this weekend we came home with:

{squash blossoms} 

{purple cauliflower!}


For the squash blossoms, I’m thinking about going with Alyson’s yummy-looking recipe – and I’m thinking I’ll probably sautée the kale… but I’m still on the lookout for a good recipe for purple cauliflower.  Anyone have any suggestions?

Purple + Gold Wedding Invitations

It’s been a while since I’ve seen purple wedding invitations (purple is way underrated as a wedding color if you ask me) – and I’m definitely loving this purple, chocolate brown, and gold letterpress invitation suite from Lilah Paper:




I love the way each piece is slightly different, but still part of a cohesive invitation suite.  Not to mention the fabulous purple and brown color palette – I love that amazingly vibrant shade of purple!  And how cute is this photo of the couple with the invitation?


Check out more about this invitation suite over on Event Jubilee – and you can see more from the Lilah Paper wedding portfolio right here!

I don't want to ruin the surprise, but just wanted to let you all know to check back tomorrow morning for a fabulous giveaway.  It's the biggest one I've done yet, and I can't wait to tell you all about it!

See you all back here tomorrow!


Seersucker + Letterpress Wedding Invitations

I just cannot stop staring at these gorgeous letterpress wedding invitations, designed by the ladies at Ice Cream Social and printed by Gilah Press:




The crisp red + white color palette is perfect for a summer wedding – but can we just talk about the details for a minute?  The seersucker fabric pouch with the gocco-printed apple + peach tag? The little red polka dots on the back of the rsvp postcard?  The darling monogram (and I’m not usually a huge monogram person) inspired by vintage fruit wrappers? Love, love, love.
