Every day on my way to the baseball field, I pass an authentic vintage truck with the bed full of baskets of fresh peaches. I’m almost embarrassed to admit it, but I’ve never stopped! BUT that could change soon, because now, a visit is officially on my summer (and #southerndoin) to do list. Nothing could be more appropriate, actually, because August is National Peach Month! Yum – just another reason to love August! In honor of this juicy fruit, we’re rounding up our favorite sweet as a peach finds for you. Keep an eye out for a few more peach-centric posts throughout the month!

A. Keep cool on hot summer night with this Peach Tea dress from ModCloth. This softer shade of Nicole’s favorite color is sure to have you looking sweet.

B. Peachy-colored invitations definitely make for a fun twist on the classic ecru. We love this modern square style.

C. We can’t help but include this Serendipity Romper from our friends at Love Ophelia. Even Emily’s favorite, the former Bachelorette, Ms. Maynard, is a fan!

D. After seeing this shade of Essie on my girl Ashley Brooke, I can’t help but be obsessed with this peach polish called Tart Deco.

E. Poms are one of my favorite easy-peasy decorations for summer soirées!

F. I think adding these adorable stripe straws to sweet tea at a bridal shower or bridesmaids’ luncheon would be the perfect detail to any peach party!

G. This cult classic Georgia Peach blush from Benefit may be my secret weapon for bright summer skin! It gives the ultimate peachy-keen sheen on cheeks without being overpowering!

H. Looking for a unique hostess gift? This waterproof vessel combines the ombre trend with a soft pop of peach color sure to brighten her day!

It’s time for another winner round-up! We’re always happy to host these giveaways because we know that when we wish we could enter them, too, they must be fab!

Last month, Andi Mans Photography and Design partnered with us to giveaway one of her adorable ceremony backdrop streamers. We asked you to tell us where you would use them.

Congrats to Suzette K. who said, “I can just picture this background behind our Candy Table at the reception. Our theme is vintage/shabby chic with a very Southern twang! The reception will be at our church gym so needless to say it will need all the decorating it can get… a breezy backdrop like this would be lovely.”

We wish we could attend the aptly-named, Swoon Event! We’re happy, then, to giveaway two pairs of tickets! We asked y’all what makes you swoon about weddings.

Yeehaw to Katherine C. who said, “I love watching the bride walk down the aisle and seeing the look on the grooms face – makes me tear up everytime!” and to Taylor L. who said, “The best swoon moment at weddings is looking at the groom while the bride walks down the aisle! All the love is written all over his face!”

We’re thrilled that MM Ink and Betsywhite Stationery teamed up to provide y’all with custom calligraphy and great paper products in one! To celebrate, we were giving away a custom set of thank you notes and gift tags.

Congrats to Taylor J. who said, “I just love the Willow calligraphy style! It is so classy and would be a fantastic way to introduce us to the world!”

Winners, be on the lookout for an email from me!

Didn’t win this time? That’s okay — there are plenty of giveaways coming up!

    Now that Emily has started us off with some winter wedding inspiration and Marissa has given us the run-down of practical but pretty Southern style, I’ve rounded up some finds to turn these ideas into a reality.

    Madi said she envisioned a Southern barn wedding with “mason jars, cowboy boots, great food and beautiful floral arrangements.” Though a summer wedding may not be in the cards, there’s still a way to incorporate all of those elements! Southern hospitality never fails, even when the weather is unforgiving. Play up the rustic details, which are as beautiful as ever in the winter and keep your guests’ best interests in mind by providing a warm atmosphere (candles and string lights are a favorite in my book) and comfy details like blankets and warm drinks. They’ll feel right at home and ready to celebrate!

    A. Warmth is a priority when you’re wearing a dress! Keep a (faux) fur stole, jacket or wrap close by. If fur isn’t your style, try a warm wool cardigan or a sleek white blazer.

    B. Want some jewelry that looks lovely in winter weather without reminding you of sparkly (and cold!) snow? How about these pearl Kate Spade earrings?

    C. Keep makeup essentials and a hanky handy in this geometric clutch from Oatmeal Lace. Bonus? It’s just casual enough to be used after the wedding!

    D. Dress up those comfy cowboy boots with some warm lace mohair socks! The little side buttons are adorable!

    E. Crocheted netted wrist gloves will keep your fingers warm without being bulky. We love this pair from BHLDN. Want something a little warmer? We love these, too.

    F. Cotton bolls will last even in the dead of winter. Tie name tags to a boll for Southern escort cards (see our Fab Finds in V4!), or put a few in a mason jar for a centerpiece.

    G. I love the warmth of glowing string lights. The view of your reception area flooded with yellow light will immediately let your guests know where the party’s at!

    H. Keep the small details rustic, too. These monogrammed cuff links will surely look dapper on your sweetie’s sleeve.

    I. Warm pie and goodies from the dessert bar will look scrumptious on these silhouette dessert plates!

    J. Nothing beats warming your hands by the fire. A round fire pit in your lounge area gives guests the opportunity to get some fresh air while staying warm.

    K. Dressing up your table without the cost of out-of-season flowers is easy. These Epsom salt candles pick up the winter theme. Place them in mason jars for an added Southern flair.

    L. S’mores are great favors for winter weddings, and guests can break into their supplies while they sit around the fire pit. You can put these together easily by placing a few graham crackers, chocolate pieces and marshmallows in a cellophane bag. We love packaging them inside muslin bags (we use this source and Amazon.com) that you can stamp with a custom message. Want another warm favor idea that involves less work? We think these hot chocolate stirrers will be a hit.

    M. Stock your lounge area with these comfy (and affordable!) cable-knit throws from Ikea. After the wedding, you and your beau will love snuggling up with them on the couch.

    N. Warm up your guests with a rich signature cocktail — milk punch!

    What do you think of our winter wedding finds? Are there any ideas that you’re dying to share with us? Tell us all about it in the comments below!
