What’s not to love about prosecco and pretty little things, right?
I can’t seem to get enough of romance and weddings this month! One of my dearest friends, Lily, is getting married soon so Melanie and I decided to throw a ‘Prosecco and Pretty Little Things’ soiree for the bride. Since Lily already has a home, and plenty of household items, ‘pretty little things’ sounded just right to make her feel special before the big day. I used a rustic look tablecloth from Spain, a vintage tray and roses-in blush and cream- to decorate the space at Wine Time-our regular spot for girlfriend get togethers. I used Lily’s wedding invitation, drawn by her daughter Ramona, to personalize the space. Isn’t it darling?
Melanie and I had fun shopping together for the ‘pretty little things’ at Heavenly Blue in downtown Chico. Our beautiful bride seems to like our gift–and I have a sneaking suspicion her husband-to-be will like it even more!
Lily is not only a bride-to-be, but also a busy mom, so we mixed the sexy lingerie up with a little something more sporty from Target.
Lily, Heather and Melanie-girlfriends for a lifetime!

I wore a blush skirt, blush/black wedges and oversized pearls, but I dressed my look down with an asymmetrical black t-shirt.

While I love a handwritten invite, some events call for an online version, like this ‘pretty little one’ from Paperless Post. The details are just perfect for our little soiree and they have a range of stylish options.
Speaking of true friends, you may remember these two girls, who met as babies at a dinner party at my house. We celebrated their high school graduation recently, with a lovely party, and soon they will be off to U.C. Berkeley together. Their moms and I are also girlfriends for a lifetime.
Girlfriends…. what would we do without them? I’m feeling grateful for these women-true friends-girlfriends for lifetime, that grace my life. I’m also appreciating the blog friends I’ve made along the way. Thank you to those of you who linked up with Jennifer and I at the #stylefocus Lifestyle Linkup. I’m feeling the blog love and I appreciate my genuine, kind-hearted blog friends more than I can say. xx
Finally, I want to share this updated and the comment about my invite to The Knot’s Dream Wedding in wine country…
I received this message from the beautiful bride Samantha on Instagram:
sinclairndipity “Such a beautiful blog about our wedding thank you so very much!💗 Wish you could have made it to our big day as well but I agree it was a worthy reason to miss…ironically enough my mom was a special education teacher and a great one at that! Takes a genuine soul to be in such a field and I send all my best wishes to the graduates! Hope you had a wonderful celebration and glad you could follow along from afar☺️ Cheers all around!😘🍷”
Love, true friendships…a gift to be celebrated.
Do you have girlfriends for lifetime?
