The Confetti Bar – Celebrate Every Day


Life is to be celebrated. The little things. The big things. The things that make you smile. Milestones. Accomplishments. Holidays. Wednesdays.

The Confetti Bar has made confetti  their specialty. With more than 30 mixes of confetti or florafetti (flower petals and mica), there is a color to suit any occasion. But, since they take their confetti very serious, they can create custom mixes (color, motifs, words) for birthdays, weddings, parties, businesses. In fact, Twitter, Lowes, Neiman Marcus and Kate Spade are among their corporate clients.

I love to use confetti for lunch get togethers or to stick inside a birthday card, so don’t feel you need to wait for something big to bring out these tiny colored party pieces!

What are you celebrating?!


Pretty Paper

Haute_Papier_SS-G5_2_4x4Pretty paper makes a difference! It really does. I swear it makes writing that note…be it thank you, sympathy, congratulatory….whatever you need to address (no pun intended!) more fun if you actually have pretty paper on hand.

I’m a long time fan of Haute Papier, but these new Grand Silk Stationery boxes are new to me. I love how you can have 4 different styles of personalization, which allows you to have some stationery for almost any reason and occasion. Check out all the darling options or dream up one of your own!Haute_Papier_SS-G5_1_4x4DSC_5669 DSC_5670_4x4 Haute_Papier_SS-G2_1_4x4 Haute_Papier_SS-G2_2_4x4 Haute_Papier_SS-G8_1_4x4 Haute_Papier_SS-G8_3 Haute_Papier_SS-G14_1_4x4 Haute_Papier_SS-G14_3 Haute_Papier_SS-G15_1_4x4 Haute_Papier_SS-G15_2_4x4Pretty paper also makes a great gift for the bride or the grad. Selfishly though…I think I have to have this little collection for myself.

Time to dash off some notes!


Lighten Up – Jana Bek

Screen Shot 2016-06-23 at 11.19.14 PMMy youngest son wanted new lamps for his room. I know…not your typical request from an 11 year old, but he had a few things left over from his “nursery” days and the lamps on his dresser were part of that.

I wanted to give him an update that would last and that I could even use in another room someday….so I showed him Jana Bek’s lamps and they got his approval! They just arrived and both of us are very happy!
