December Inspirations


This month’s inspiration post is a little bit late, but I was too excited about last week’s Christmas party posts to put them off! Now without further ado, here are a few things inspiring me during one of my absolute favorite months.

Wedding inspiration: When it comes to incorporating Christmas inspiration into weddings, simple, streamlined, and elegant is my favorite way to go. This California Christmas invitation suite does that perfectly and balances the festive details with more rustic accents, like succulents and whitewashed wood.

Fashion inspiration: Dressing for the season doesn’t have to mean red and green! Winter white paired with metallics and pretty textures is a no-fail for holiday parties this month.

Interior design inspiration: I can’t imagine having open shelves in the kitchen, but these all-white ones filled with subtle Christmas decorations are irresistible!

Foodie inspiration: December’s Southern Living was one of my all-time favorite issues, and their red velvet-inspired Christmas party was such a gorgeous shoot. Doesn’t this red velvet cake with coconut cream cheese frosting sound as divine as it looks?

What’s inspiring you this December?

Love, Lisa

    I cannot imagine having open shelves either. I’m just not tidy enough for that! Ha! But, it is SO gorgeous!

  2. I love everything about these inspirations…the colors, the natural elements, the elegant styles…they are absolutely beautiful!
