Weddings with Charactrer and Glamour.

Being invited to be part of a couples special day is a real privilege.  I am so excited to share with you pictures of  two of the weddings that I attended in London.  One wedding was for our very good friends' daughter at the Wokefield Park mansion and the other was my cousin's daughters wedding at the Savoy Hotel in London. 

With the usual England weather of grey skies and chilling temperatures, the wedding décor and venues compensated for the English weather!

What a treat it was to attend a wedding at the grandest and iconic Savoy Hotel with charm and splendour.  It is the first luxury hotel in Britain, which introduced electric lights, electric lifts and bathrooms in most of the lavishly furnished rooms.  It was renovated a few years back to it's original glory and more.


 




What a great way to listen to music while eating.  This Cello player was outstanding, she was invited to play at the Buckingham Palace.

Englands country side venues are classic and never go out of style.  The  wedding ceremony took place in Reading in a beautiful church and the reception in a Mansion House built in the 18th century with so much character.  The scenic country side and the grandeur are breath taking. The wedding was perfectly beautiful.



The tables were named after cocktails...of course Boston rules!


Beautiful patio for cocktails and scenery.

My week-end in pictures

The Perkins Gala is coming up and needed an outfit, so I dragged my husband and browsed around Newbury St, in Boston.  Didn't find an outfit, but look what I found!!!

Jonathan Adler needs no introduction to the design community...you will want every single item from the store.












H & M Home is another store to recon with and the prices are amazing!

Targe' aka Target! The good news and the bad news...

If you haven't been to Target lately, you need to run not walk!  First the good news, Target has some beautiful décor accessories for the home.  The good/bad news is that Target partnered with Lilly Pulitzer to create a "Lilly for Target" collection. The bad news is, it was gone within minutes of opening the store on Sunday.  I have some pictures (scroll to the end) of Lilly for Target collection I missed out, but dreamed of for days prior to launch!
 
Here are some of my pictures of the Accessories on the shelf and styled pictures using Target products from the net.

 Styled...love the natural elements and the beachy feel of this room.


Other Target ideas that won't break your bank.
 

With Macramé coming back into design fashion, this would make a good scaled back version of Macramé.




  
The vases are so pretty, you don't even need flowers in them.  Here are some of the Target finds at my home.

 Pillows

The white/gold and the green/gold pillows are from Target, thought it will freshen up for the summer. 


 
Now to the Lilly for Target collection...look what I missed.  These items were gone in a second.
