1. A few of my favorite things…

    The latest Crate & Barrel catalogue came yesterday, actually two for some reason, but I’m not complaining since I got double the images of tablescapes and kitchen goodies to drool over. ‘Tis the season here at LLL, I am combining just a few of my favorite things over at C&B. So whether you add to your wish list or registry, get your notepad ready!

    1. Cuisinart Hand Blender, a recent requirement in my kitchen for all those made-from-scratch soups I have been whipping up. My personal fav can be found here
    2. Bar Cart…a necessary space saver in my wee little apartment.
    3. Vintage Wedding Style Book, I am a sucker for any wedding themed coffee table classic
    4. Backgammon Set, snuck in by my husband (he must be trying to tell me something) and a family favorite pastime
    5. Piggy cutting board, this is a must have. Everyone should have one, and it is dishwasher safe…bonus!
    6. Ombre blue bowls…these are a no-brainer, and their cute
    7. Mr. & Mrs. Ring Dish, for an added accessory for those picture perfect shots on your wedding day
    8. Mint + Chocolate = Heaven
    9. Livi White and Red wine glasses, because I always seem to break wine glasses, and you can never have enough
    10. Gorgeous throw pillows in to-die-for patterns and prints
     

  2. Baby’s Breath Obssessed

    I can’t get enough of baby’s breath lately, with its all-season elegance. Below are 33 ways to incorporate this fresh floral into your wedding, or every day essence.

  3. Corks, Keys, and Sea Shells

    What are you collecting? Whether you have a vintage vibe, are going the rustic route, or feeling more boho and beachy, you must be gathering something worth sharing (perhaps for a DIY project?!)

     

     

     

  4. Round or Rectangular ?

    LLL wants to know! What is your wedding table preference?

    Round…timeless, allowing your guests to have more personal convos (with contained centerpieces of course!), and comes in a variety of sizes.

    Rectangular…a new trend and updated look, great on space for tighter rooms, provides more area for all those bud vases and wine bottles that you have been collecting!

     
  5. An AH-MAZING dress from Nicole Miller. See all those wedding details on Style Me Pretty!

  10. Keeping Those Small Fries Occupied

    Inviting children to your wedding? Whether you have twenty kiddos, or just one ring bearer, you may be asking yourself how to keep them busy during the reception. Printing your own wedding themed coloring books is an inexpensive way to make them feel special, and keep them from having a possible meltdown prior to the dance floor shenanigans!
