Spring, you wily temptress! I think she and her delightful weather are finally here to stay. Here are some fancies to help inspire you this warm weekend:
Giddy up, Good Magic! The finest horse race in all the land is on Saturday and here’s a little something to whip up at your bar. I always rely on my Mrs. Lilien Cocktail Swatchbook for an elegant elixir; her punch bowl treat the Lawn Party will be your new spectator favorite.
Hydrates a crowd of 6:
- 1 cup bourbon
- 1 cup Pimm’s Liqueur
- 1/2 cup simple syrup
- 12 mint leaves
- 1/2 cup lemon juice
In a large punch bowl or pitcher, add 1 cup bourbon, 1 cup Pimm’s Liqueur, 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice, 12 fresh mint leaves and 1/2 cup of simple syrup. Stir well. Add 2 cups of ice cubes, garnish with mint sprig.
A hybrid of sandal and espadrille to add feminine charm to any ensemble. My size is sold out or I would have snapped them up in a heartbeat! Shop them on Tuckernuck here.
PRETTY ON PAPER
I have to share these dear announcements done by C. Buxton Designs for Walton Street Stationers that I had made up for Louisa. Our Christmas cards always have an image on them but I was keen on the idea of having the announcement stand alone and including a separate picture in each envelope just like the old days. The custom monogram will be a lovely keepsake for her nursery! If you’re looking for classic paper goods, these two sources deliver in spades.
Speaking of Louisa, I don’t believe I have formally introduced her on the blog yet! Our muffin is already 5 months old and such a joy. She is very active, a total card and has her own little brand of particularity (don’t come near her with a pacifier! Teethers are okay in her book though!). I’m so excited for all the fun ahead but also savoring these yummy baby moments, they’re going by too quickly!
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
