We’ve been spending quite a lot of time outside in the evenings. Sure, it is still pretty warm here in Arizona, but it is significantly cooler now that the sun is setting earlier. With being outside, I can’t help but start planning and hosting some events of our own at the ranch. Every year, we kind of go all out during the holidays. Starting in September and headed through New Years. To kick off the holiday season, we’re sharing about our take on September’s number one holiday inspired event; a modern Oktoberfest Dinner Party.

We’re big fans of dogs. In fact, we recently wrote about ways to include your dog in your special event. But if we love at our pets like they’re a part of the family, why don’t we celebrate them a little bit more? Today, we’re giving you all the details of the fluffiest birthday bash you’ll ever see right here in Scottsdale, Arizona. (more…)
Did you see our Bright + Colorful Birthday Party Inspiration on the blog last week? It was filled with an epic rainbow balloon installation, the most colorful cake and even the cutest bar set up from Iconic Cocktail Co. The beauty that was this collaborative shoot was recently featured over on Inspired By This, but we wanted to break up all the gorgeous details in a couple of different posts for you. What we didn’t share on the first post was the delicious cocktails that came with the bar. You read that right… PLURAL cocktails! Today, we’re sharing Two Colorful and Delicious Cocktail Recipes with Iconic Cocktail Co. that you can make in the comfort of your own home. (more…)
If you were to ask us a few years ago what our style was, we would probably say very minimal and clean, not too much color. Boy oh boy, has that drastically changed. As I am sure you can imagine, the wedding and event industry is loaded with tons of repeat designs. Many of the beautiful styles, themes, aesthetics and colors that you see on Pinterest are super popular and usually get used quite a bit. It is a fun challenge for us to work on similar styles in different ways. So when Kris with Konsider It Done had this idea of a rainbow birthday party with colorful details stylized photoshoot, we knew we had to be a part of it. At first, it was such a busy time in our lives and a lot was going on with me personally, that we weren’t sure if we could make it work with. We knew that this shoot was going to be really unique and different than most things we do. From the beautiful rainbow balloon installation we did, showcasing our new modern brass flatware, and all the other details in between, we are so glad to have been a part of this rainbow birthday party with colorful details.

If you live in Arizona, you know most of us try to live in the swimming pool to escape hot days. Slather your body up with some strong SPF and cool off in your pool as needed. We’ve got a pool on the ranch, but if you don’t there are community pools and club houses in practically every neighborhood. We are also big fans of escaping the heat at a trendy hotel with a nice pool to chill the day away. In fact, we are dying to get our butts over to The Scott to indulge in their new renovations and enjoy a pool day. The days are hot, the nights are warm and the pools are cool. Add a delicious cocktail, taco bar and outdoor lounge to your mixture and you’ve got yourself your own pool party! (more…)
Okay, so you know when you get invited to be a part of a really cool project (in this case, an event) with really talented people that you’ve admired? This next event is just that… We were asked to be a part of a beautiful dinner under the stars in Joshua Tree, California with our new friends at Moonrise Standard. They’re all about bringing people and communities a stronger connection with their food and the farmers that grow it. They want to educate their dinner guests the importance of how their food got to their plate and why it is valuable information to know. We love their mission, love their style, and overall, really just love what they’re doing. So when they reached out, we of course said yes!
