Like the rest of you my mailbox has been infiltrated with magazines.  Loads of them.  There were a few things that stuck out for me, so I thought I’d share.  So here it is, a post titled “In The Mail: Home Edition”.

I like this shoe & handbag tower from Ballard.  It’s a little pricey, so if you can’t splurge I’m sure you could find something similar and then just add some trim pieces from Lowes.

Pottery Barn was brilliant in their recent outdoor spaces magazine.  They showed tons of before and afters of porches and patios using all of their outdoor items.  Brilliant.  Really, it had both my husband and me needlessly looking for reasons to buy stuff (we didn’t).
And you should also know that I adore these chaises.
Lastly, really digging these colorful outdoor dishes from West Elm.
Thanks for playing along :)

I’m just looking for a reason to throw a little party so that I can use all of this cuteness from Pretty Smitten shop!

I adore that gumball theme. And Pretty Smitten’s owner, Elizabeth, has ideas for days to make a party unique and special.  Look at these stickers she put on bottles of bubbles!  Brilliant for summer.

And how many times have you stood at the food table trying to decipher if that sandwhich is indeed chicken salad or tuna salad.  There’s a big difference people.  These little customizable tented signs will be much appreciated by your guests.  Plus, they’re just plain cute!

Here’s a few of the most popular themes to get you thinking.
So if you’re looking to make a party feel special and unique {without all the effort}, visit my awesome sponsor Pretty Smitten.  She’s super affordable.
