Floral Potluck 2015

After last year's party, I knew I had to throw another floral potluck. So once again I asked a few friends to join me and bring a flower bunch to share. Elissa of Thread of Scarlet did an awesome job teaching floral crown basics and Jessica of Sugar Loo Cakes made the most amazing cakes - Lavender cake with honey cream cheese frosting and two little gluten-free strawberry cakes covered with edible flowers from the garden.

I loved visiting and it was so fun to see how beautiful and different everyone's arrangements turned out. We were even blessed with fantastic weather (last year was a scorcher)! Needless to say, a great time was had by all and this party is officially an annual event.

Swaddle Love

A friend of mine recently launched a line of swaddle blankets and asked if I would take some marketing photos. Take photos of adorable babies all wrapped up? Of course! What could be better?

Having recently had a baby, I am well acquainted with blankets that do and do not work well for swaddling and I honestly have to say that I love these. They are larger than your typical blanket which makes getting a good swaddle much easier. They are also made out of a great lightweight material which makes it perfect to use in the summer or as a nursing cover. One of my all time favorite things about these though is that they come in fun simple colors. If you know me, you know that I am not a fan of cutesy character covered products. If you are looking for a great baby shower gift or if you are expecting a little one, you need to check these out on Amazon!
