party : a colourful easter brunch & hunt

First of all, it’s been so long. I know, I know. And I know that both Rachel & I have been missing the blog – and hope to find more time to blog in the coming months! Between a new baby and a lot of work stress, House of Colour had to be set to the side… but just for a season!

I’m happy to break the silence today with a post about the Easter brunch & egg hunt that our mom hosted. Our cousin, Ali, stepped in to help with crafting, decor, florals, etc. She did such a wonderful job!

So without further ado…

This weekend, House of Colour + the incredible talents of our cousin Ali styled a colourful Easter brunch & egg hunt.

We used Paperless Post for our invitations – they have great & inexpensive designs for online invitations.

The invitation inspired the colour scheme for the florals & all the party decor.We created a colourful pennant garland & archway to greet guests as they entered.

The real show-stoppers were the floral arrangements. We used our family favorite, Lyal Nickals, to get cut flowers in our colour palate & arranged them in ribbon-wrapped glass vessels. We also scattered a few dyed eggs – what’s Easter without dyed eggs?

You may have noticed those sweet little egg bouquets… we saw Fleuritica’s egg cup tutorial on Pinterest & loved the idea!

Other decorative touches included LOTS of hanging honeycomb eggs,  paper-mache eggs, bunnies & carrots on stakes and more!

party : wively wisdom brunch

Hey there, wonderful people! We’ve been pretty quiet in the blog world lately because we’ve been so busy with all manner of soiree! We’re gearing up for two big parties this summer, which means a lot more time priming, painting & building!

Last weekend, I planned and styled a party for my friend, Christina, who is getting married this month. It was a lovely time of brunching and sharing what wisdom we’ve gained as wives.

The wooden stumps went really well with our wise owl theme!

A triangle garland was a must for this special lady – it’s one of her favorite shapes!!

It was an awesome time!
