Happy Birthday, Papa

I'm so excited to head (back) to Vancouver tomorrow and - more importantly - to celebrate my Papa's 80th birthday party.

We have an amazing party planned and I'm just working on a couple of the final details. Per his request, we're planning a party with a yellow palette, a jazz soundtrack, and delicious food. (I'm clearly over the moon excited for all of the above).
You rock, Papa.

So, for some last-minute-inspiration...

Our florals will consist of spring buds in a few larger arrangements, several smaller vases, and a number of bud vases. We're planning on a combination of yellow tulips, daisies, and daffodils with bear grass.

I'm currently jamming to the amazing soundtrack of Nina Simone, Oscar Peterson, Billie Holiday, and Frank Sinatra I'm compiling on my iPod.

The Menu will be brought to us by none other than the Lazy Gourmet, Susan Mendelson's amazing Vancouver-based catering company. Their Menu is too-die-for (I was hungry after reading it) and the hospitality, amazing.

Since I wasn't able to get my act together to put a blog post together, I thought I'd share my favourites of the week found here-and-there... enjoy:

Cookie Love: I will be trying this recipe as soon as possible.

Colour Crush: I'm trying to figure out how I can incorporate burnt orange into my home & my wardrobe (I think this purse would do the trick).

Flower Power: I'm lusting over this wallpaper (& trying to figure out how I can con the b/f into letting me paper a wall in our home) and this centerpiece (gorgeous).

Sleepy Time: It's official. I need these bookends in my life.

Black Beauty: I'm dreaming about this dress and beautiful poppy bouquet. **Amazing**

Paris je t'aime: I want to move to Paris and dress like this adorable lady (see more of her, here).

That's a wrap for me, this week.

Whatever your plans are, I hope you enjoy .
