August 31, 2012

{Cranberry, Red, Latte + White}

Trying to think of a really fun theme to incorporate into your upcoming Fall wedding? I don't know about you, but apple picking has always been one of my favorite things to do during the season. So why not have your ceremony in an apple orchard? There's something so charming and sweet about that idea, I think. Plus, I just love the idea of sending guests home with a burlap bag full of apples! {continued...}

{Black, Taupe, Antique Gold & White}

When it comes to weddings, I'm all about incorporating pretty patterns! Stripes, polka dots, gingham, chevron, swirls - you name it... I love them! Because to me, patterns are such an easy way to add a touch of fun and whimsy to your day. Take this palette for instance - see how easy it is to mix and match patterns? I love how the gingham necktie contrasts with that striped table runner! {continued...}

{Shades of Orange, Latte, Gold + White}

Well, hello there color lovers! And happy Monday! I don't know about you, but nothing thrills me more than the thought of Fall. What can I say? I'm absolutely smitten with the season! With visions of leaves changing into bright fiery hues, it's no wonder I can't wait until there is officially a nip in the air. That being said, nothing warms my heart more than the idea of getting married out on a quaint little farm during harvest season. It's a time for food, it's a time for family and more importantly, it's a time to really celebrate life. And so what better time to say 'i do', I say? {continued...}

Top it off with a display of decadent desserts like this one, and you've set the stage for a seriously sweet soiree. So what do you think? Are you liking the way that all of this sounds? Are you dreaming of a backdrop of beautiful leaves? I sure am...and I simply can't wait for all of the fun, Fall festivities to begin!

{Birth Announcement}: My Twin Girls!

August 23, 2012
You might have noticed that it's been a bit more quiet around here on the Perfect Palette lately. And as much as I've truly missed you guys, I promise you it's been for good reason! My husband and I are so excited to announce that our twin girls were born on July 24th, 2012. Olivia Marie was born at 8:59 p.m. and her twin sister Brenna Rose was born a minute later at 9:00 p.m. I'm proud to say that I carried the girls to 36 weeks and 5 days and they were born at the very healthy weights of 6 pounds, 11 ounces and 6 pounds 7 ounces.


With a two year old little one already at home, as you might imagine we really do have our hands full. Yes, we're over tired and yes, we are overwhelmed at times. But I truly wouldn't have it any other way! The girls are such welcomed additions to our family and we feel so blessed that they are here and healthy. That being said, I wanted to let you guys know that I'm so looking forward to getting back to blogging. I've definitely missed you guys! So be sure to swing by next week as I have some creative ideas that I've been dying to share! I can't thank you all enough for all of the sweet messages, well wishes and thoughtful gifts! I seriously have the sweetest readers!
