This weekend I’m in San Diego visiting my sister and my darling nephews, going to swimming lessons and reading stories and snuggling. I’m also doing my best to put the burn on my sister to move to Northern California so I can see more of them, and so that I have someone nearby who’s more addicted to sweets than I am – I’ll let you know how that works out.

Paloma’s Nest is one of my favorite sponsors, and last week they celebrated the grand opening of their flagship boutique in Austin, Texas! Guests enjoyed charcuterie and desserts, Paloma cocktails, and went home with some little pretties. Q Weddings sent over some photos of the party…

How cute is this e-vite for the grand opening?!

Paloma cocktails are made with grapefruit, tequila, seltzer and lime.

The dessert buffet featured a nest theme, including a nest cake topper (complete with macaron “egg”) and sugar cookies painted with little nests. Kristy Rice from Momental Designs created a custom table runner for the dessert table.

Party favors were little porcelain ornaments in the shape of Texas, with a heart over Austin in honor of the first brick and mortar location of Paloma’s Nest.

If you’re in the Austin area, be sure to stop by Paloma’s Nest for gifts, ring bearer bowls and other modern heirlooms. And for the rest of us, from now until June 30th, save $5 on any online purchase of $50 or more by using coupon code CELEBRATE.

I’m so excited to welcome wedding photographer Jen Lynne as one of our newest sponsors! Jen shoots weddings in both digital and film, and you know how much I love film. Of course all you really need to know is that her photography is lovely, but I’ll let the images speak for themselves…

Jen Lynne offers several wedding photo packages (all of which include complimentary engagement sessions), as well as hourly rates. And even though she is based in Michigan, Jen will travel anywhere you can think to get married, and right now the cost of travel is included in the package price, so definitely take advantage of that! See more of her beautiful work on her website and her blog – I hope to see some Snippet & Ink reader weddings posted there soon!

Do you ever have those weeks where you get totally thrown off, and think Tuesday is Wednesday and Thursday is Friday? Well, that was this week for me – I don’t think I ever knew what day it was! Needless to say, I’m hoping the weekend will help me reset my brain. Steak-and-eggs breakfast with dad will help, right? How are you celebrating your dad this weekend?
