What are you up to this weekend? Do you have BBQ plans? Memorial Day is fast approaching and it marks the first official weekend of the summer season! Memorial Day may be known as the propriety marker for wearing white, but it is most importantly a day to remember those who have served and defended our country. Usually, we commemorate this tributary day by surrounding ourselves with family, food, fun, and lots of summer-ish sun.
This week, the team at PL wants to help you spruce up your BBQ table with some cute commemorative crafts. Red, white, and blue cupcakes and cookies are always fun to make, but this year we love the idea of fresh berry cone cups for a healthier take on a patriotic-colored desert. Just wrap some construction paper into a funnel and fill with the season’s sweetest blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries and you’ll have a little bundle of berries that are sure to satisfy any sweet-tooth. Rather than going overboard with red, white, and blue decorations for your Memorial Day table, we love the idea of mixing small American flags with antiqued tin cans, white linens, and small votive candles for a clean and simple Americana vibe. All you need is a touch of patriotic flare to make your Memorial Day come alive!

What is your spring pattern inspiration? Are you on team stripe or team solid…or… are you searching for a new fun fabric to flaunt this season?
This spring, the team at PL is crazy for CONFETTI! Yes! We love the little bits and pieces of glitter and dazzle that stream from the sky at weddings and New Years celebrations. And, although CONFETTI is usually reserved for those very few times a year when we want to rejoice and revel, the team at PL wants this fun-tastic, exciting explosion to be a part of our everyday lives. CONFETTI can be a reminder that life is vibrant and worth celebrating every single day. Why wait and wonder at the delight of tiny colorful cut-outs only a few times, when there are so many wondrous and extraordinary moments in our lives. So, this season, the design team at PL has highlighted CONFETTI in our SORBET COLLECTION to add a little bit of celebration and playfulness to your daily routine and to remind us all that there are so many moments to marvel in our lives! So celebrate with us and sport some CONFETTI this season!

May is the month of the mama! And this week’s post is directed at all the PL moms out there! Although the team at PL believes that every single day you should show your mom how much you love and appreciate her, May is especially dedicated as the Month of the Mom. Mother’s Day is coming up this Sunday and we hope you all are going to take the day to enjoy being your amazing mama-self! Treat yourself to an extra cuddle with your kids, soak in some bubbles, sleep in a little bit on Sunday, get a mama-loving mani/pedi, take time for yourself. Whatever you choose to do to celebrate yourself this mother’s day, we hope you know how special you are. You are the front line warriors, the greatest influencers, the supreme support system, the main role models, the leading ladies in your children’s’ lives. No one could take your place.
