Hosting a Galentines Soirée 

Brought to you by 1-800-Flowers.

Galentines is the perfect excuse to spend time catching up with the girls over mimosas, brunch, and fresh blooms! I’ll take any reason to style an event, but when it comes to a fun girls soirée celebrating your friendship, I love to incorporate some of my favorite things!

The Menu:  Finally dig through all those to die for recipes you’ve been pinning and go to town! Go for a chic brunch menu with all the fixings or if you’re like me and my tribe and Mexican food is your jam, opt for a nacho bar and serve churros for dessert!

The Decor: Gorgeous flowers set the tone for a colorful party! I used this vibrant bouquet from 1-800-Flowers as my muse for the rest of the decor and it couldn’t have been more perfect for the occasion!

The Activities: Set up a Lip Bar. It’s the perfect time to try out a bold red, or bright pink you’ve been dying to see on! Have fun by layering hues to customize your color!

Weekend DIY: Floral Arrangement

Weekend DIY: Floral Arrangement | The Subtle Statement

After a two year search for the perfect peony arrangement, I came across my favorite shade of individual stems and decided to create my own. Why haven’t I thought of this sooner?  I picked up a vase, wire cutters and an Acrylic Water Kit. For under $30, in under 30 minutes my ideal arrangement was complete.

I’m all about the full blown metallics for Spring. It makes a great statement piece, to make any ensemble shine. Gold and bronze metallics make chic beach accessories, and silver is such a chic pairing with black & white or a pop of neon.

I‘m always acquiring bathroom decor with a Parisian feel. I don’t have a large amount of counter space, so a decorative cake stand is the perfect fit to keep organized.

A sweet smelling candle, body brush and bath salts are fun spa-like essentials with a decorative look. Only a few key items make a chic statement.

Coordinate using a color scheme or theme to fit your bathroom style, and give it a personal touch.

Little updates are a nice change. This is the start of a gallery wall above my bath tub. I love mixing frames, sizes and textures. {DIY here}

Organization keeps my mind at ease. My obsession for with a pink pout is kept under wraps with this lipstick/gloss organizer.

Juice Cleanse

Once a month, I like to do a green juice detox to stay healthy and be refreshed. Pressed Juicery has the best juices and homemade nut milks, making it something to look forward to.

Weekend DIY: Instant Update {Nightstand}

In need of a pop of color to my mostly neutral bedroom, I updated my nightstand with a few home “accessories.” A decorative candle stacked upon books of inspiration, and a vivid floral arrangement. To add character, I typed out a fun quote and slid into a coordinating frame.
