Kamp Kappa Delta 2019

This weekend, I hosted another Kamp Kappa Delta with my sorority advisor sisters. We host this retreat as an opportunity to get to know the newly elected chapter officers and help prepare them for their term. I always look forward to this weekend because we are fully immersed in our sisterhood for 24 hours, and it is truly a time to bond and learn.

Ringing in 2019

With just a few days to prep for NYE, I enjoy checking out shops in person to see what they have in stock for the celebration. This year I love what I found at Crate and Barrel. Their NYE collection is a collaboration with Layer Cake and it is perfection! I love the color scheme – a mix of pink, mauve, gold, and grey. I also love that it’s not specific to New Year’s, so I can use it for other celebrations throughout the year.

Noon Year’s Eve Charcuterie Board

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas holiday surrounded by loved ones! We had a lovely time celebrating with Chelsea’s family. Now, as we prepare to ring in the new year, I am excited to share a great idea for your party – big or small – a charcuterie board!

I don’t know about you, but I struggle to make it to midnight on New Year’s Eve, so I’m excited about the concept of Noon Year’s Eve, which makes going to bed at my normal bedtime of 9 p.m. perfectly acceptable. πŸ˜‰

A charcuterie board is nice because you can cater it to the exact needs of your group. You can also customize the amount of food based on the size of your group. And, it’s perfect for noon or a midnight snack!

Dressed in Holiday Style Party: Flower Arranging

Last weekend, I hosted the annual Christmas Party for my sorority sisters! I went with a line from the song “Silver Bells” for my theme, “Dressed in Holiday Style.” Yesterday, I shared all the decor details (see those here), and today I’m sharing all about our party activity – making flower arrangements!

Last year, we made wreaths and it was a big hit, so I assumed flower arranging would be met with similar excitement and it was!

Dressed in Holiday Style Party

This weekend, I had the pleasure of hosting the annual Kappa Delta Christmas Party for my sorority sisters! Read about our previous party themes here.

This year, I took a line from the song “Silver Bells” for my theme, and went with “Dressed in Holiday Style.” It was so fun to bring this theme to life in a unique way. Here’s how I did it…

My first step was selecting the invitations to set the tone for the party. I used my favorite online invitation platform, Paperless Post for the invitations.

Friday Favorites: ΞšΞ” Christmas Parties

Happy Friday! I’m taking today off of work to do some last minute prep for my annual ΞšΞ” Christmas Party with my sorority sisters! On my to-do list – the flower shop, Pottery Barn, Williams Sonoma, Total Wine… Whew, I better get going!!

Kaydee Christmas is an event I look forward to every year, and I love coming up with a new and different theme to change it up each time.Β Today’s favorites are reflecting on all the fun themes!!

My first favorite is the 12s Days of Christmas I put together back in 2014! This was a Seahawks-themed Christmas. For all my non-Seattle friends, Seahawks fans are referred to as 12s. The gifts were themed after the 12 Days of Christmas and the color scheme was green and blue. I loved that this theme was a little different than the typical red and green.

Incorporating Pets into a Wedding

This weekend I coordinated a beautiful Halloween themed wedding at a gorgeous old house in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. Check out all the details in my Instagram story highlights – L+M Wedding – here.Β  The bride and groom have two pets they love dearly, and since the dogs couldn’t be there in person, they found an adorable way to include them. It also reminded me of some other fun ways I’ve seen pets incorporated over the years, so I decided to put all these ideas here in one place! Continue reading
