ribbons and bows, paper flowers and pennant streamers- what’s there not to love? stylist livia cetti is an event designer, crafster and contributing editor for martha stewart weddings. based out of nyc, i love how her work balances a modern flair with organic sensibilities. can you believe that those flowers are actually tissue paper carnations? you can order them right from her website! and can i just say, if i was standing in front of that candy display, it wouldn’t be looking that way for long. are those candy dots i see rolled up? oddly enough, those are my favorite (paper and all)! visit her website for more inspiration- especially if you’re planning a wedding!

hello lovelies! have you all seen this movie? i just shared it in the comment section of the next post, but i love it so much that i wanted to share it here! it’s just a quick snippet of a new movie coming out called fresh and discusses our food system and the health of humans on the planet. the beauty of it has made me tear up more than once (not kidding) and it’s a must see!

my mom surprised me yesterday with amy butler’s midwest modern lifestyle book! isn’t she sweet? my jaw dropped as i flipped through all 224 pages of amy’s inspiring images and story lines.
page after page, she lets us into her whimsical home and studio, beautiful kitchen and outdoor gardens.
she talks about her life, her business and design process and gives us an inside peek into what inspires her work. with how-tos in every chapter she draws you in with incredible images and design work.
if you look to nature for inspiration or love learning about successful artists, amy butler’s midwest modern is a must read. i’ll be flipping through it’s pages many more times as it left me feeling uplifted and creative. enjoy!
