We have two really fun events coming up this week: The Kentucky Derby and Mother’s Day.  I’ve teamed up with Mary of Love of Character to bring you some serious hosting inspo!  When hosting such special occasions, it’s nice to keep things simple and easy… with quick cleanup – key for after party sanity!

Mother's Day Gift Guide List

Mother’s Day is next weekend and I thought I’d share a Gift Guide for those procrastinator’s like me.  There’s still time to go out and find the perfect gift for the woman who brought you into this world, even if you have to overnight it!

We celebrated Easter with lunch and High Tea at The Brown Palace Hotel and Spa.  This was my first time experiencing High Tea and I absolutely loved every minute of it.  High Tea is held in the lobby of the hotel and includes a vast selection of exotic teas accompanied by delicious mini desserts, scones, tea sandwiches and live music.  And if you’re not abstaining from champagne like I currently am, you can add in bubbly!  We really didn’t need to eat lunch before since there was so much food served, but since we were all tea-time beginners and didn’t know any better we ate beforehand.  The Brown Palace is one of my go-to’s for special occasions, like the Champagne Cascade to kick off the holiday season as seen in this post.

I’ve been experimenting with how to dress my growing baby bump and found the perfect Easter outfit as seen in this Instagram post.

NYE Inspiration

New Year’s Eve is just around the corner and I’ve teamed up with June Ruby to provide a little outfit inspiration for when the ball drops!

We’ll be welcoming 2016 in with friends in Chicago.  Scott and I will be in town for one of my sorority sister’s weddings, the wonderful Kate of Kel + Kate – a fashion and lifestyle blog based out of The Windy City.  And since we’ll be in Chicago for her winter wedding, we figured we might as well spend a night out on the town for New Year’s Eve.

Wrapped Presents

In the spirit of Black Friday, I thought I’d share a little gift giving inspiration.  This Holiday Gift Guide is part wish-list, part recommendation. So here’s to finding the perfect presents for the women in your life, whether they be a Jetsetter, a Fashionista, an amazing Hostess, a Fitness Junkie or perhaps a new mom.

P.S. If my friends and family are looking for something to get me this Christmas, look no further!

This weekend was spent running around prepping for Thanksgiving and I enjoyed every second of it.  I absolutely love the holidays and I couldn’t be more excited to be hosting our family again.  This year will be the third consecutive year that we’ve hosted Thanksgiving and it’s becoming one of my favorite traditions.
