Friday's Fancies

I'm out with KVP + LRT + Woody for a fun weekend in the Outer Banks, assisting alongside my fave stylista, Lindski at a wedding!

So excited to help Linds make some ladies "be pretty!"
Working behind the scenes with such professionals is such an honor!
I'm ready to dive in and learn what I can on how to make the process of a wedding day run smoothly.

In order to get through the day, comfortable clothing is a must!

Where to turn? Bright cafe capris, a soft and cozy sweater, flat espadrilles, a bag large enough to hold all the essentials and a sock bun to keep your hair in place and styled all day long!


Hope my all my lovies have a wonderful weekend! 
Anything fun going on this weekend?
Do share!

Spring Tablescape

I had the amazing pleasure of working on a tablescape design over the weekend with two of my fave DIY blogger sisters from Two Delighted and it was oodles of fun!
If you haven't checked them out, you absolutely must!

Meg and Colleen have such a terrific talent for all things creative and as we started planning out the vision of our spring tablescape, we had no problem bouncing ideas off of each other, thinking outside of the box and executing plans down to every last detail. 

Everything from the planning, to the antique and fabric shopping, to implementing the design of the tablescape was such a fun and exhilarating project. I particularly loved the styling and setup phase. Matching fabric swatches, gathering a little of each others dinnerware and stemware, to picking out the perfect amount of gold accents was more than a designers dream! 

Of course I was thrilled to create custom designs for the little menus and place cards!
Can we talk about the amazing Painted Silverware {DIY} that Two Delighted did?
I must get out some of my old silverware and try this one out!

Look at the incredibly romantic ambiance taking over as it got dark, with candlelight 
and twinkling bistro lights. 

Many thanks to my favorite duo, Megan and Colleen, for including me in 
such a treat of a styling project!
I'm already itching to help create the next one!

Check out more details and photos over at Two Delighted!

Have you set up any tablescapes lately?
I'm sure your Easter tables were just dashing!

She's Back!

Oh my goodness, my sweet lovies! I have been neglecting the café for far too long!
It all comes with wonderful news, though, and I have been dying to share it with you!

I was hired by the amazingly talented, beyond heartwarming and all around incredible woman and photographer, Kristin Vining of Kristin Vining Photography
When I met Kristin a couple months ago, I knew she was a rare jewel. 
You can tell from the second you meet her how much passion and charisma she exudes. 
When she offered me the position as studio manager/graphic designer I was ecstatic!
This is by far a dream come true and I thank God over and over for letting us cross paths in the first place!

I will also be working alongside another outstanding talent, Lindsey Reagan Thorne, who you might remember from our Bloggers Night Out. Lindsey is practically every girls very best friend! 
She's sweet, hilarious, gorgeous, talented, spunky and somebody you can be your total self with!
(She also happened to beautify me in the pic below with hair, makeup and styling!)

I am out of this world blessed to have an opportunity such as this!
I can't even imagine the wealth of knowledge and skill I will gain from this amazing team 
and my role as a studio manager!

But just so you know,
Coral Café is back in action, here to stay and still evolving into the best it can possibly be!
Excited to share this amazing new journey with you!

Saw this video on Glitter Guide and just had to share!
Net-a-Porter is one of the perfect sites to find luxurious and trendy pieces.
Most of all, their shoes are on fire!

Indulge yourselves!
