New Party?

We so often share about ourselves, but aren't we all so often inspired by what we've seen elsewhere?  Those of us who blog, often do this already so it really wouldn't be something new, but what if we had a party to celebrate our inspirations?

Here's an example ...


I love wedding magazines, websites, etc.  I've been married for 6 years so why do I like them so much?  Do I want another princess moment?  No.  The answer is flowers. 
Martha Stewart Weddings

This is a white astilbe wedding bouquet, but wouldn't that be beautiful as a centerpiece?  I think it would look great exactly as it is laying flat vs in a container and surrounded with a few scattered votives down the middle of the table.
What has inspired you this week?


What do you think?  Would you be interested in joining me for a weekly Inspiration Party?  As in the example above, it doesn't have to be decor, or a DIY project (although it could be).  Is there a recipe you'd love to try?  Did you see something when you visited a shop that you just thought was beautiful?  Is there something new you'd like to try?  I'd really love to know.  How does
Inspiration Tuesday sound?


  1. Hi Melanie, thanks for stopping by the High Street Cottage, and for the lovely comment on my Swedish Inspiration Post. I love Martha Stewart. She's inspired so many women, Linette Jennings too! Have a wonderful day, and thanks again, tami

  2. I think it's a great idea - but I am notoriously bad about remembering to post for parties! I'll try, though.


  3. Claudia,
    I don't anticipate closing parties so you would be welcome to post when you remember.

    The idea came about when I thought of organizing inspiration ideas along the same lines as the paper photos, articles, etc. but in virtual form. I'd just have a tag for Inspiration rather than a folder. I thought others could do this as well with their own posts.


  4. sounds good to me, I find inspiration everywhere!

  5. I love seeing what inspires others. I think it would be a great party.


Comments? I love comments!
