Bangs...Do or Don't?


Bangs were in high fashion just a couple of years ago. Then everyone seemed to grow them out at once and now we are back to being inspired by them. Maybe because it's a quick and easy change without chopping all of our hair off? Megan and I both came to the conclusion (separately) that we were interested in revisiting the bang. It would just be so nice to do something different, and how cool and effortless do these bangs look in these images?
Anyways, what do you think? Do or don't?

Dinner, Dessert & Elderflower-Champagne Cocktail

This past weekend we celebrated lots of birthdays, one being Megan's mother Ginger. There's nothing better than sharing a meal out on the back deck during Spring. The whole family contributed food and drinks and it was a lot of fun celebrating her! 


The super fun "HOORAY" sign is by Oh Joy! For Target


The pavlova was made by Megan and you can find her recipe for it here.

And the cocktail for the evening was an Elderflower-Champagne Cocktail. It was such a hit. 
We found the original recipe here on Zested. But here is a quick version of it:

Ingredients:
Dry Champagne
St. Germaine
Thinly Sliced Cucumber
Mint

Directions:
Fill a tumbler with ice. Fill 3/4 of the glass with dry champagne. Add thinly sliced cucumber and fresh mint. Top off with St. Germaine.

It's that easy!

Happy Friday!

What are you up to this weekend? We are finishing out some busy projects on our end are excited to spend some time relaxing and enjoying the nice weather with family for Easter weekend. Below are just some random pics as of late. Megan did food and food styling for a recent shoot for Inspire Weddings & Marriage Magazine. You can see it in their summer issue!

We attended a really fun flower potluck at Queen City Church. Everyone brought pretty flowers and it was so fun hanging with all those girls. 


We attended a Spring Garden Party hosted by Studio White. Bonfires, cocktails and meeting new people. Lots of fun. 
And we got up really early for a shoot with Karisa of Nectar Floral Designs for her spring flower portfolio. Karisa is so awesome and you can read an interview about her that we did here. She also manages McGill Rose Garden in NoDa. If you're ever in the area, you should stop by the garden and walk around. It's so fun to be surrounded by so many beautiful flowers and foliage!

And tomorrow we will be at the MorningStar Spring Festival
Megan is selling treats and I will be setting up a photo booth. You should totally come out if you have kids, rain or shine. 
Have a great weekend!
