Always in the business of making new buddies here at ModCloth HQ, we’re clamoring to befriend multi-hyphenate extraordinaire Ree Drummond from the blog The Pioneer Woman. We’re always impressed by people that can juggle what seems like everything, and Drummond, who lives on a working ranch in Oklahoma, is also a bestselling author, popular photographer, and television personality. No biggie.

But what caught our eye this week, aside from the plethora of mouthwatering cakes and pies on her blog (hey, it’s pi day, we have food on the brain), is a cool story that she wrote about us. Ya know, We’re always blown away when we discover new fans on the Interwebs, and because we’re in an especially good mood (and admittedly, stuffed to the brim with said pi day-inspired pies), we wanted to take a moment and share the love.

So if you’re…

Dreamy Gender-Neutral Baby Shower


How pretty are these Baby Shower Invites!!!

Originally posted on Tie That Binds Weddings Blog:

When Elizabeth was tasked with honoring her bestie with a baby shower, she knew Tie That Binds was the place to start. Inspired by the surprise that would be the baby’s gender, Elizabeth wanted a shower invitation that would set the tone for the entire shower. It needed to feel soft and luxurious, not too feminine, and uniquely sweet, just like the mother-to-be. What resulted was a luxurious watercolor lamb stationery suite with golden envelope liners, a monogrammed laurel motif, and the sweetest lamb you ever did see illustrated by the super-talented Hadley Hutton.

Gender Neutral Shower

Elizabeth flexed her planning expertise and coordinated thoughtful food, decor, and even a pianist to play during the shower. Her mother graciously offered to host at their home in South Tampa, Florida. Positioned on a gorgeous lake and surrounded by lush trees and Spanish moss, they arranged for a professional set designer to drape over…

Love Corinna’s wrapping ideas!

Wedding Month on the Corinna Wraps blogMacarons — there’s something very luxurious about these meringue-based French confections. And if you’d like to hand them out as favours at a wedding or other special event, you’d better make sure the packaging is as sophisticated as the treat. Try one of these four elegant ways to wrap macarons without hiding the sweetness inside:

1.A frosted gable box gives a hint of what’s inside while keeping the sweets protected. A little wood fill or paper shred on the bottom acts as a cushion, while ribbon and a leather rose broach dress up the outside.

macarons favours — clear pillow box

2. Show off a pair of macarons in a clear pillow box tied with a ribbon.

3. For a variation of the gable box above, try a frosted Chinese takeout container.

macarons favours — wrapped in cellophane to look like candy

4. This is an idea that I shared in an issue of Food & Drink magazine: wrap each macaron individually in cellophane so they look…

A Fun Saturday!

Saturday June 15th….. A baby shower for my dear friend Val. Val is the cutie that is pretty in pink, with sis Christine,  who put on a darling party! I made the ombre tufted cake, complete with handmade edible baby shoes atop the smallest tier. All of the guests made a scrapbook page for the baby book, each with a specific theme, ‘baby girl’ ‘Valentines’ etc. so so cute. Val picked 3 of her favorites and the winners received beautiful gifts!

A sea of pink gifts were so stunning we barely wanted her to open them:) Baby Tinnely will be adorable in her new wardrobe.

All were treated to a tasty Italian style lunch. We left the party with a pretty baby pink nail polish favor as a reminder of our fun afternoon.
