Fancy coming over?



Luke has started building my deck! To celebrate it's completion (no actual idea when that will be) we will hold a lovely dinner party. The food might not be perfect (cooking is certainly not my forte), i hope the decor and styling may make up for my cooking skills!

I love the quirkiness evoked through the gorgeous colours, fabrics, details and femininity here. A stunning yet fun inspiration. Kellie x

Beautiful styling by Lolliop, thank you to the lovley Amanda at Weekend Host for the intro.... x
