Weekend Snapshots

This weekend involved a lot of my favourite things: dinner out with friends, some productive work, celebrations with champagne, the farmer’s market, flowers, gardening, a family dinner, and seeing The Great Gatsby (I loved it – am I the only one?)

The Ascot is one of my favourite places to go for happy hour. I went with my classmates after a long class on Friday, and the Mint Julep below was more than welcome!

The above photos are from a wedding that I coordinated on Saturday. It was a great day, and the sun came out for some beautiful photos. The floral arrangement above is a great DIY for brides trying to keep costs down – a few hydrangeas in mason jars with ribbons and DIY tags. They looked amazing!

Shortly after the wedding ended, I headed out to a good friend’s engagement party. It was so nice seeing the happy couple celebrate the upcoming nuptials. I loved the backyard decor – cafe lights strung across the yard, mason jars with candles, and beautiful calla lilies grown in the garden.

Sunday afternoon was filled with gardening. The pot above is the first gardening experience that I’ve ever had! It was so much fun and I can’t wait to see how they fill in.IMG_4247

True to blogger form, I’m enjoying peony season. I was so thrilled to see a local farmer with her stand lined up at the Farmer’s Market. Good news, she’ll be there for the next few weeks.IMG_4251Not the greatest photo, but I’m so proud of our herb garden! We have the following herbs/veggies planted: arugula, rosemary, parsley, jalapeno, basil, sage, oregano, celery, swiss chard, kale, onions, romaine lettuce, strawberries and cucumbers. I can’t wait to see what we are able to do with our produce in the kitchen!

I hope you had a great weekend and are ready for a busy and productive week ahead filled with sunshine breaks and delicious food.
