With Spring finally right around the corner I can't help but get excited for brunches, fresh flowers, spring colors, and being with my girlfriends.  All I want to do is gossip over mimosas and spend the day with friends... especially since I'm still stuffed up in my house studying for my certification exam (when will it be over?!)  One thing I love to do (even though it's rare) is entertain. I love having a reason to clean the house and lay out a fancy spread - whether it's a wine and cheese night, homemade dinner with my roomies, or brunch for some gals. Fun fact: you don't have to spend a ton of money to make your spread look fancy. Mix up patterns and plates, create height by putting some plates on shot glasses (just use 3 so it doesn't get knocked over), add in fruit to allow people to create the perfect drink and top it off with fresh flowers because they always make a table look finished!

With all of the gorgeous fabrics from Living Threads Co. I had a difficult time picking one color. Since it was such a gorgeous day outside I decided to layer them all together... I guess you could say I was inspired by the season? It was a nice break from studying and we had a special visitor coming that morning ;) My roommate got a French Bulldog puppy so I knew we would have people coming through the house that would nibble on everything.



I want to take a second to chat about this company... One thing I love about blogging is bringing y'all fun outfits and introducing you to new ideas and companies. I have a particular soft spot for women founded small businesses and when I read about Living Threads I fell in love. Their mission is to do good through small business, supporting artisans while directly connecting consumers with the women and men who weave the products. Amanda, the founder, is so passionate about developing relationships with these amazing people that she couldn't even be at our shoot because she was traveling to Nepal to make new connections! The company helps train weavers (currently in Nicaragua and Guatemala) and then allows them to empower themselves by creating a reliable source of income with skills to provide for their families. 10% of the profit through sales is donated to the artisans through their micro-credit and training programs. Read more about it here.
