We can’t decide which is more fun—styling an engagement session or an anniversary session. So we’ll just keep doing both! And Stan and Erika’s Moroccan meets Eastern Shore anniversary session at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club was a dream! Wooden pallets, nautical rugs, oversized pillows, jaw-dropping peonies—need we say more? Still swooning over all the loveliness Krista Jones captured for this super sweet couple! Cheers to many more!
Spring is in the air at the Kari Rider Events studio, and we’ve designed the perfect tablescape to usher in the new season! Coastal blues, crisp tulle, long-stem tulips with a hint of blackberry, terra cotta urns. Does it get any more Eastern Shore?! We hope this has you as giddy for spring as we are!
We get it, some years Valentine’s Day just isn’t your biggest priority—even if you’re in a relationship. So if you haven’t planned a killer getaway or made that coveted dinner reservation, don’t sweat it! There’s nothing wrong with throwing a low-key, last-minute couples party for a fresh and fun take on this date-night dominated holiday. Here are three quick tips to get you started!
Stick with Your Standbys For us, that means stopping by our go-to décor destination Dwelling & Design for a pop of pink courtesy of their colorful flatware line.
Roses are a Girl’s Best Friend At least on Valentine’s Day because they are everywhere, even in grocery stores! Pair them with some snapdragons and leafy greens like we did here for a loose, textured look.
And So is Rosé If champagne is a Valentine’s Day must, Rosé champs is a double must! Garnish with frozen raspberries and blackberries for the perfect pop of deep berry hues.
