“3!…2!…1!…” this gorgeous Gold & White New Year’s Eve Party by Ashley Drummy of Poppy & Plum Events has some of the design elements that I’m always drawn to — gold, glitter, and classic lines.

Happy first Monday of December! Does is feel odd you that it’s already December? Because I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around that fact myself – the gap between Thanksgiving and December 1st was way too short this year.
