birthday inspirations

The countdown is on to 'birthday week' at our house. Ry's and my birthday are just 2 days apart, so it's always very exciting coming into May. Not sure what we are up to this year, but for now, I'll dream of what it could be, would be, should be! To start off, we'd better be sportin' some killer outfits, starting with this gorgeous dress by Top Shop and a sweet man-cardie for Ry, compliments of JCrew for Men (not sure if he'd wear it, but I'll try!).

And if we're outdoors, how hot would Ry look with these RayBan Sunnies?! So cute!

And the photographer in me has always wanted to try having a photo booth at a party! They look ridiculous and fun, so why wouldn't I want one!

Living in the Okanagan Valley, we are influenced by the fabulous wine culture, so when I saw this drink chiller made from the reclaimed remnants of a wine barrel, I thought, I need one! This Wine Barrel Chiller from Viva Terra is pretty sweet, but I think this could also be a DIY project for someone super handy - like my dad (hint, hint).

And lastly, if we're having drinks, we've got to cute them up, and what better way to do that with feathers?! DIY drink stirrers with a little duster at the end. Love it! Thanks 100 Layer Cake girls for the idea! Love, love, love that blog!

Happy Friday, everyone!
