My little Blakely is not in “school” yet but she does go to a little playschool a couple of days a week. I wanted to give her teachers a little something fun to
I’m declaring this the summer of citrus! From lemon chess pie to citrus iced tea sangria, I’m loving all things citrus! Of course, we have to have a gorgeous party tablescape for all those summer get-togethers! Even if you’re not much of a party hostess, I encourage you to still jazz up those family dinners. Headed outside to enjoy the weather? Swap your typical dishes for
Happy Labor Day, Y’all! I couldn’t rightfully allow fall to get into full swing without one last hurrah for summer! What better way then this darling “You Are The Pineapple Of My Eye” Baby Reveal for the talented Beth Beattie of Palm Beach Lately. The mini pineapples are just too cute and the pink flamingos? Love. I adore the bar cart styling and the sweet
Hi Pizzazzerie readers! Cara here from One Swell Studio! Summertime is in full swing! Around here, our days are spent playing outside–morning, afternoon, & evening. I can’t seem to convince these two little boys of mine to EVER come inside. They’re entirely too busy digging in the dirt, making mud pies and searching for earthworms. I’m forever trying to think of fun crafts and snacks
Summertime holds so many family memories of gathering with grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins while sharing family stories and enjoying favorite recipes. I spent so many summers in South Carolina where my grandparents taught me how to make the perfect peach cobbler, the tea was just a little sweeter, and you never saw a rocking chair empty! These family gatherings around the table were the perfect yearly
If there is one food synonymous with summer in my opinion, it’s watermelon! When dreaming up a picnic-worthy dessert (did you see yesterday’s bright and colorful summer picnic?!), I decided to turn this iconic summer fruit into a layered cake parfait. Desserts that are easy to pack as well as eat are the only way to go for a picnic, so leave messy treats at

Some of my fondest memories are picking blackberries at my grandparent’s house in upstate South Carolina with my family. We have this thing with blackberries…we LOVE them (proof: my brother’s blackberry jam recipe). They’re not quite as popular as the strawberry or the blueberry but if you taste them at their ripeness, you’ll fully understand why we’re obsessed. Blackberry cobbler is a personal favorite recipe
Hey, Pizzazzerie readers! It’s Cara from One Swell Studio. The school year is slowly dwindling to the end and if you have school-age kiddos, you might be wondering “What in the world am I going to do to keep them entertained this summer!?” (I know I am, at least!) When the weather is beautiful & the sun is shining, playing outside is always an option.
Happy Friday! I’m excited to share my nautical backyard summer dinner party with Target Home as part of a sponsored campaign with Socialstars #TargetCrowd. Though I might not live on the coast (I’m still struggling with the fact that Tennessee is landlocked after growing up in the Carolinas), I decided it was due time to bring the coast to Nashville. Thus, my dream of the perfect nautical backyard
Oh the warm weather, I’m so glad you’re back! Y’all, I’m just itching for spring and summer parties. The outdoors provide the perfect setting for mixing and mingling. You might remember when I shared a few of my favorite holiday hostess gifts from Mud Pie a few months ago, and now I get to share a few more faves. I styled up a simple nautical party to
