I placed a huge nail polish order from HEAD2TOEBEAUTY because the prices are just hard to beat!  I already have another order going because I am literally obessed with polish.  I cannot  drive down the highway without seeing a car and thinking to myself, “that would look great on my nails!” (Obsess much?)

I think I want to make polish?  I know people do it..it would be fun! Ya, I could be a crazy wild nail polish maker…like, why do people make these limited edition colors and then they don’t come back again…Why are holos so hard to get?  They are freaking beautiful!  Just look at these two I just bought:

Color Club Fashion Addict

They do kind of like radio active, but they are so beautiful!!!  I need more polishes like this in my life!

Color Club Wild At Heart

I mean, are they filled with lead? I want CHINA GLAZE OMG.  Just bring it back already…or I am going to become a crazy wild nail polish maker.  Ya, that is my plan.

Until  then,  you can watch below to see what I bought!

I saw this today on BizBash Toronto and thought that this was so elegant…and I just might be able to pull this one off.

A new take on Tartar

Basically, these are just deep fried cones made from wonton skins, filed with roasted tomatoes, topped with a parmesean creme fraiche and basil.  The color is amazing, and I am inspired to try!  Love how they are served standing in salt too.  I must try.

Just saw this sweet little DIY project on the Hostess With the Mostess site…and I just had to share:

These are great, no nonsense and simple to fill with flowers.  That always seems to be the hardest part for me, making the flowers look good in a traditional vase.  These would look great with one giant sunflower and some greenery….and the wrap around the bottle really makes them look special.  Find the instructions HERE.

The Fruits de Mer display is impressive and simple!  Loads of fresh cooked and raw seafood chilled.  Prepared earlier in the day then set out for your guests to enjoy.

Check out this great demo from the Pottery Barn as they shows you how you can create your own!

I am in love with the silver tiered tray!  I must resist the urge to order one now! :)  Gorgeous!!  For more details and photos, check out the Pottery Barn site.

How cute is this?  I haven’t been on the Amy Atlas blog in some time, and boy have I been missing out…she does exceptional work, and the things she finds are worth seeing.  For instance…have a look at this birthday cake for a birthday party.  Have you ever seen a cake that looks like a bubble gum machine?

So cute…I would totally hate to cut this!  I love it!  It was created by Blissfully Sweet Cakes.

Click the image to see the rest of the styling on this party.  Really adorable!

One of my biggest inspirations for party making comes from The Party Dress website…it is pure eye candy, colors and textures, gorgeous inspiration.  Well, there is now a quarterly magazine filled with beatiful images and ideas…this one is full of Easter/Spring goodness!  You must check it out!

You gotta go and look!

The mimosa bar on the front cover is enough to shake me from this partiless life I have been leading…I gotta have an intervention! :)

I hope you all are well…and I hope to have some pics of my own on this blog again soon!
