Kate Spade Floral Arranging with Urban Stems - Get $15 Off Your First Bouquet

Events, ShoppingLibby RasmussenComment

Last night, Kate Spade Georgetown was gracious enough to host a floral arranging event with Urban Stems and we had the best time.  There's really nothing better than shopping for new earrings (we picked up a new pair of our favorite studs) while sipping champagne and admiring the new Spring Collection.  Make sure to check out our favorites at the bottom of this post! 
Better yet, Urban Stems, our favorite DC and NYC floral delivery service, was there to show us how to make the perfect spring arrangements.  Here's how mine turned out.


Urban Stems brought tons of great flowers for the arrangements.  This one included some anemones, yellow and pink ranunculus, some stock, and garden roses. Everyone's bouquets looked fabulous and unique.  Here's a snap of my hands (middle left) working on my bouquet, courtesy of DC photographer, Taylor Kampa Olson.


If you haven't yet, make sure you check out Urban Stems for your next "thank you" or "just because" flower bouquet.  They are incredibly reliable and I've loved the bouquets I've been sent in the past (see here and here). One of my favorite things about Urban Stems is they send you a confirmation photo and email of the arrangement in front of the delivery address. Such a cool touch and a great way to ensure that the recipient got their flowers safely!

I'm in love with The Jade arrangement pictured above. 


A big thanks to the gals at Kate Spade Georgetown as well. The store looked adorable as always. Now check out my favorites from the store!

So I won't lie, I really try my best to count my own blessings and not the blessings of others.  But sometimes, (no thanks to the Instagram explore page) I can't help but covet certain aspects of other's lives.  
This couldn't be more of the case with my new #lifecrush - Innika Choo.  

Here's the low down on Innika, she lives in Bali with her two gorgeous daughters Eadie and Matty, and her painfully cool husband, Pern.  They moved to Bali a few years ago when Pern, an architect, started working on a plan for an eco-development on the island.

 "The pace and lifestyle makes for quite intriguing beginnings for our girls. Cows, frogs, geckos, chickens and bogans - what more could you want?"
Innaka explained in an interview with The Grace Tales.  
My dream.

Innaka's life is full of lush green foliage, brightly colored, distressed walls, effortless flowing dresses and blonde locks.  

Life  for Innka is fun and unhampered, but also real.  Joking about her "saggy knees" and daughters' meltdowns are only a few examples of how she truly loves motherhood and silliness.

Now please excuse me while I blow this month's paycheck on Innika-inspired-Bali-wear.
