[ENTERTAINING] SOPHIE CONRAN 

{Living in Store}

These entertaining buckets by Sophie Conran are so clever. The Drink Bucket is a homemade lemonade and cordial kit and contains a recipe book, muslin square for straining, funnel, glass bottles, drinking straws and ice bucket. The Eat Bucket contains a portable BBQ, charcoal, matches, tongs and recipe booklet. Both buckets would come in handy if you like to entertain or they would also make fantastic hostess gifts.

[READ] HANDMADE WEDDINGS

{Photographs by Sally J Shim}     {Book Photographs by Joseph De Leo}

I'm kind of late to singing the praises of Handmade Weddings by Eunice Moyle, Sabrina Moyle and Shana Faust, but better late than never! Chronicle Books sent me a review copy several months ago and I snapped some shots of my favorite projects and foolishly forgot to post about the book. This is the Hello!Lucky ladies second "handmade" book [the first was Handmade Hellos, which I was lucky enough to contribute a project for]. There are so many cute + clever projects in this book and I love how they break it down by style, Retro Homespun, Girly Romantic, Happy Graphic, Organic Minimal and Modern Classic. The layout, photography and styling is so clean and fresh and I love how all the projects can be tailored for non-wedding events as well. [If you haven't checked out the cute Handmade Weddings video you should!]

* Disclosure: Please note that although the book was sent to me by the publisher I only write reviews for the books that I truly enjoy. All thoughts regarding the book are my honest opinions.
