{Friday Finds} Lovely Things from Blogland

First week off work and I managed to not do a thing productive. 
Not exactly what I was going for….
but, I have been really enjoying it! 
One of the many things I have been doing is reading a ton of blogs. 
Today’s {Friday Finds} is all about the fun things I’ve been finding and enjoying out there in blogland. Maybe you’ll find something pretty to inspire you for your next event, 
evening out or even just a simple soiree.
  • The girls of eighteen25 have changed my blog reading life! I’m always reading blogs on my phone and saving posts with “STARS” when I want to comment, blog about, or “pin” an item I saw (it is difficult to do from my phone). But, then when I am in my reader I am constantly needing to open tabs to see each post. Not anymore! A simple tutorial has made it super easy for me to travel through my many subscriptions on their actual webpages. If you use Google Reader then you should check out their page!
  • Hank & Hunt is a member of TWIPS (an online community for people in the wedding industry) and they recently redesigned their website. I seriously JUST discovered this site and am already in love with the new DIY area! Plus, look at the beautiful design of the website!
  •  Our City Lights is currently participating in The August Break (an idea from Susanna Conway)— If I had known about this BEFORE setting up some posts already for this month I would have totally done this the entire month of August! But, instead I’m going to be doing this sort of in and out this month. Days I don’t have posts lined up (or am feeling incredibly lazy, pregnant or exhausted from new baby) I will participate in The August Break and leave up a photo on the blog for my post that day. 
Oh, and because I can’t let you forget 
that I am actually writing a blog devoted to parties…
here are some parties that have really inspired me of late:
  • A Happy Modern Housewarming Brunch featured on Hostess with the Mostess— I LOVE the use of the egg printable throughout the party and the cute, punny sayings!
  • Jenny from Hank & Hunt did a guest post over at Lovely Little Details that included her list (and some pretty amazing pics) of her “fete closet” supplies. I love the products she has included and own many of the same items in my own party closet!
  •  This Princess, Pink, Pinwheels, Pandemonium Party makes me SMILE. The name alone is awesome.
  • I love garland… and I love garland that can be reused and easily stored EVEN more. So, I’m loving this tutorial from Ashley Anne’s Under the Sycamore for an ombre colored garland made out of a bed sheet!
I hope you came across something new and fun while looking through these Finds! If you’ve found anything in Blog Land recently that you think I might like please link it in the comment section!
Happy Weekend!
