Fashionista Favorites ~ Rose and Gold

Tomorrow is the Fashionista’s birthday.

We are celebrating by everyone working a full day….booooo! However, the family does have plans to meet her for dinner.

I’ve also compiled some wonderful décor and DIY ideas featuring her current color crushes ~ rose and gold.

Let’s start the celebration with cake!

This sweet “naked cake” features French macarons~ a favorite of the Fashionista’s.

Stunning gold and pink themed naked cake by Juniper Cakery:

Miniature animals wearing party hats, why yes, she would love that!

DIY Gold Animal Cupcake Toppers- using craft store animals and gold spray paint. Love the look!:

Simple washi tape flags and gold foil liners could easily elevate store bought cupcakes.

Over the weekend we celebrated with glasses of Peach Amour De Paris sparkling wine from Trader Joe’s. If only we had had edible gold glitter on the glasses!

Rose and Gold / Champagne Drink with Gold Sugar Rim:

Pink paper straws elevate everything.

Inspired Design:

For the birthday table décor bring on the gold flatware. Dollar store chargers are easily updated with a bit of spray paint and a few white flower offerings can be gathered from the grocery store.

Add a touch of glam to your home decor with copper and gold hues that will warm up any table setting.:

We could use these fabulous plates from Studio One Studio.

A few months ago I stumbled across the gorgeous work of Lindsay from Studio One Studio via Instagram.  I love love dishes, and handmade pieces always appeal to:

Pink vintage glassware is always a win in her book.

We Love This Simple And Pretty Tablescape With A Lovely Outdoor Vintage Flair. The Pink And Gold Color Palette Is Amazing Too!:

Glittered rose gold coin purse place card holders…indeed.

If it’s warm enough, let’s dine al fresco.

But first, we need to put more fairy lights on the patio…

Place some indoor furniture outside.


Set up an outdoor lounging space complete with potted cactus in pink pots.


As for a few gifts…

You can never go wrong with adding to her teacup collection.

Old, but gold beautiful china:

Or a new journal and art supplies…

DIY marble and copper stationery 2

…as well as office supplies.

The Rose Gold MacBook Is Officially Here:

Candles and books forever!

The fashion “must have” list is endless.

Polished temples add eye-catching metallic shine to the sides of these classic shades by Gentle Monster with subtly chic, oversized frames.:


asos crushed velvet foldover clutch:

As are the beauty supplies.

What's in my purse! ♡

Of course a big ticket item would be a rose gold stove…oh wait, that would be the perfect gift for me!

Favorite Space (this gorgeous copper kitchen via My Domaine):

But the girl does make one mean charcuterie board.

Copper Cheese Knives, Set of 3:

She has been wanting to add more plants into her life yet lacks the space. A terrarium might just be the perfect gift.


This lovely party combines so many of her favorites.

Of course, in my opinion, the ultimate rose gold combo is this amazingly beautiful, wonderfully kindhearted, tremendously talented, one of a kind, birthday girl.


Happy Birthday Alyssa Lou!
