December DIY Centerpieces

By Something Social, Posted in DIY Projects

Hi Friends!For my last centerpiece of 2014 I chose to go with my absolute favorite flower the peony! And in December? That’s pretty much unheard of! These beautiful blooms were complimentary of the very talented Bloomers from Lyndsey & Jeff’s Wedding on December 20th at Beacon Hill Club in Summit, NJ. For this very simple holiday centerpiece I used a vase full of luscious flowers in a clear vase. Put them on a gold charger and surrounded it with fake greens. So simple yet so perfect!Enjoy! x... read more.

By Something Social, Posted in Life

Hi fellow happy people,I must admit after choosing 10 various topics to focus on over the year, I was truly stumped while thinking about what I could focus on in November.I chose Travel because I had planned a weeklong trip to Texas with some friends. We explored everything Austin had to offer including fabulous food & drinks.Yes, I am a bit of a food snob these days. I haven’t always been but over the past few years I’ve been able to appreciate great wine and foods. It was so fun to be able... read more.

For the month of October I focused on my attitude. One of my all time favorite quotes is “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it”.

I spent a fantastic fall day with my family in New York, My nephew’s Christening and Chris’s sister got Married!Smile More-As simple as that sounds, sometimes you forget to take a mom... read more.

A Year of Happy-Passion & Design

By Something Social, Posted in Life

Hello Friends!I hope everyone had a wonderful summer and are ready to tackle the fall! I personally have mixed feelings, as I never feel the summer is long enough. I could use a few more days of 80-degree weather :)For the month of August I focused on passion. I did some soul searching to figure out what I really felt passionate about. What I discovered was Wedding design. Don’t get me wrong, I do love the coordination aspect of the planning but what really challenges me is design.I brainstormed vario... read more.
