Trend: S’mores

I love the rustic look and feel-good nature of a s’more dessert. I love, even more, that party & wedding planners across the nation are bringing s’mores to their events. It is not just a delicious idea, its also an interactive one for guests (what could be a better activity?!). I see this trend almost daily and wanted to share some of my favorite inspiration.

Something Borrowed: Sporty & Gold Olympic Party

I am pretty excited about the Olympics. Between all of our summer weddings, however, there is no way we have time to throw an Olympic party. But, that doesn’t mean we can’t live vicariously through those that do have time to dream up super creative ideas. Take, for example, this Sporty & Gold Olympic Party featured on Hostess with the Mostess, created by Bird’s Party. It was too inspiring not to share!

Something Borrowed: Easter Picnic

Easter is a very important holiday to us girls at Social Graces. It’s much bigger than easter eggs and candy (although we still love our eggs & candy!). We pray that this Easter season is a time of celebration in your life as well.

I came across a beautiful, airy Easter Picnic that Melissa from Ever So Pretty Events featured on Hostess with the Mostess. I had to share! To read about the details, click here.

Have a blessed Easter weekend!

Party: 4th of July

To continue our 4th of July celebration, here is a super cute party from Hostess With The Mostess.

My heart is drawn to pretty 4th of July parties. It’s my mom’s favorite holiday which of course made it mine as a little girl. We had a huge block party every year where all the neighbors come together for good food and amazing fireworks.  Chick here to see more details from the party.

Social Graces wishes everyone a fun and safe 4th of July!
