I heart stripes...dots...and checks...part 2 of 3

I love plain and simple patterns. Polka dots and stripes and checks, oh my. Hello, and welcome to part two of my patterned party pretties series. I found this little guy on the front page last week, and fell in love with him. Therefore, our topic today will be checks, gingham, plaids, you name it. Isn’t he adorable? I also love anything with the name Henry. (hmmmm…wonder why???) I am doing new photos for my shop soon, and I am working really hard to find a way to incorporate this little guy into the shots. Maybe he should just sit on my shelf next to my doxie bookends…Henry by Fernanimals.

Most everything found for today is gingham. I have a special place in my heart for Tartan, but I just can’t bring myself to post about luscious wools when its 102 outside. Call me crazy. Just wait until fall and I’ll have so many pretties posted you’ll be seeing plaid!!!

Stunning outdoor wedding? Add a smidge of gingham for the groom. I don’t know where she found these lovely vintage gingham leaves, but I have a new love for vintage wares (as if the list wasn’t long enough already.) The color combinations in her delicates are beyond lovely. and perfect. I think you could base a whole wedding around one. Country mouse pussywillow boutonniere by the French Mouse.

Here is some lovely gingham for the ladies. I would wear these every single day. There is something about gorgeous, large and fun earrings that has me absolutely mad lately. Floral Mum earbuds by Stella James Designs

When I did my sister in-law’s baby shower earlier this year I had Grandma-to-be make jam favors in itty bitty jars. I made my own printable for the tops, but I must admit they were not nearly as cute as these. Gingham labels by Lelo.

What party couldn’t use a pretty bunting? I am partial to the raw edges on these. I love a little disorderly conduct in sewing when it’s executed on purpose. I just think it’s prettier. Preppy Navy and Pink Gingham Bunting by justpretty.

This fabulous one stop shop was here last week.  Haven't been there yet.  Put this gorgeous little dear in your favorites, like today. Pretty in plaid baking cups at Bake It Pretty

Favors? Baked goodies? I love this set that comes in three sizes. Love the plain black and white. Gingham paper bags by CakeWithLove

These little lovelies are just plain awesome.  I love labels that I can change over and over.  That means I can use them over and over for anything I want...yay! Gingham chalkboard labels by Bradens Grace

This company does oodles of party printables, even candle wraps. This is by far my fave colorway.  Gingham printable box by ThePoshEvent

Hold on - don't go just yet... Are you using clear cellophane bags? Mix and match these to add a touch of pattern to an all white affair. Cute twist ties by marchare

  1. So summery! There is something so perfect with gingham that makes me want to sip lemonade in the shade while the kids are playing in the sprinklers. Crazy that a print can evoke such emotion! :)
