To Do | Summer in DC 2015

As you may know by now, I’m known in my group of friends for having ambitious to-do lists for each and every season throughout the year. I love having so much to look forward to, I like having ideas for when we need something to do, and I love to explore my city and the surrounding areas… there’s just so much to do and so much life to be enjoyed!

SUMMER IN DC 2015

What’s on your summer to-do list? I’d love to hear what events and activities you’re most looking forward to!

PS: Here’s a past summer to-do list!

Hand Dyed Silk Ribbons

With a styled shoot on the near horizon, plus a smattering of weddings, I’ve been on the hunt for gorgeous silk ribbons for my brides’ bouquets! Frou Frou Chic, Silk and Willow, and Silk & Tincture are my three go-to sources for hand-dyed ribbons. All three shops offer the most lovingly made, gorgeous, ethereal, and natural silk ribbons. I’m always wowed at the difference between these organic ribbons versus a basic spool of silk ribbon you’d pick up at a craft store, and the differences are so noticeable. I love the science, the art, the stories, and the passion that go into making all of these hand-dyed silk ribbons; it’s astonishing! I cannot wait for some of these ribbons to complement the floral designs I’m creating – they would be the perfect adornment to a bridal bouquet!

Do you have a favorite source for gorgeous, unique, natural ribbons? Or are one of these three shops a favorite of yours?! I’m always scouring around for new ribbon shops, boutiques, and sources, though I adore all of these so much!
