These silver trophy vases and mercury glass votives are my new favorite item in our store – they instantly dress up the table or mantle even when empty.

The gold beaded chargers are new in our Debi Lilly Design for Safeway collection – and are a must for setting the table, bien sur.

Style me Pretty Wedding Feature



Oh what fun – a beautiful feature on beloved Style me Pretty today!


We are in love with every single beautiful detail planned for our bride and groom, Anjali and Jon, at Gallery 1028.

These Debi Lilly Design dual bud vase/glasses are still a favorite from last year’s Safeway collection…can’t get enough of them.


And can you just guess where this pretty petit vase came from, last summer?

A Paris flea, bien sur.



Wedding photography stylist secret: Did you know a little rain on the streets and sidewalks makes your photos sparkle and shine?



These two.

Oh, I simply couldn’t get enough of them.

I so love it when I get to hang out with the little wedding party vips.

I wished they would never have to go home and go to bed that night…


Just breathtaking, every single bit, non?
