You guys are ready for spring, aren’t you? I know I am, and I live somewhere that saw 70-degree-plus weather last week. So while we wait for the blooms to rise from the frozen ground, how about we just pretend that patio-drinking weather is right around the corner? These gorgeous frocks, all under $60, evoke a considerably brighter, cheerier season ahead.

Which one of these pretty floral frocks do you like, BABs?
These summer nights sitting under twinkly lights at the local watering hole, kicking back with my favorite people and basking in the love and friendship around me had me majorly inspired to dream up a pretty backyard wedding inspiration board. A beautiful, light gown paired with muted and understated earrings and a simple headband. Eclectic table accents include a sparkly runner and a lacy blue runner to highlight the varied tableware patterns and colorful glassware with proper amount of gold and color to delight and luxuriate.
Varied and gorgeous serveware and dishes can often be found for uber cheap at thrift or secondhand stores, and you can re-donate when you’re done. The table runners and paper lanterns easily translate into home decor items … or you can pass them on to a bride you know who would enjoy them for her wedding.
