In our Pining For Pinterest posts, we prepare our readers for the upcoming season with interior shots alongside decor and event details in a fresh, new color story and overall look. Spring has sprung! The sun is out (off and on), the flowers are blooming, and dining outdoors is officially in season! It’s our favorite time of year! Please enjoy as we take you through our inspiration for two totally different concepts that stay true to the essence of the Side by Side Design model of Interior Design and Event Planning going hand in hand. These events, whether casual or over-the-top, are meant to take place where you feel most at home. Get it?

Tami’s Pins: What’s “pin”spiring me this season? Mamas and macaroons! Therefore, throwing a party for all of your mama friends (with macaroons, of course) is your best idea yet! Have it at home or your fav local spot, get flowers galore, and give thanks to those who have the most thankless job around. Happy Mother’s Day to you and all your gals!

Not a bad place to lounge, while waiting for your guests to arrive!

Have everyone gather in your home …

… and quickly take a few cars full of mamas to this top secret location! Isn’t this table stunning? It is done just right with florals and custom menus for you and your gals. No wonder you chose this as the perfect lunch spot!

As a special gift, provide beautiful take home gifts such as these with each mama’s photo attached.

Wear perfect pastels!

Sip champagne …

… and enjoy every last bite!

Lauren’s Pins: What’s “pin”spiring me this season? Taking a walk on the wild side! Bold patterns mixed with hot colors is all the rage right now, and I just love how you can still make this look classy when done right. We wanted to give you two completely different looks for Mother’s Day this year, and this one is for those wild mamas we all know and love!

I love the unexpected color story in this living room, and it totally leads to something fun when party planning.

I am obsessed!!!!! I mean, how can you not be?

A fun patterned umbrella makes you feel like you have left and gone somewhere tropical, and I just can’t with these decor elements. Simple yet done so right!

Even the bar menu is on theme!

The hostess with the mostest … 

… and these pink margaritas in the perfect shade!

For dessert, I went with French macaroons too, but printed to fit my theme.

This Spring is beyond busy, and we truly feel like we have brought the events “Side” of our business to the next level. We look forward to all that is coming up this season and using some of this inspiration in our own planning. We would love to work with you in creating the right look this Spring by tying in the inspiration of your event with the essence of your home decor. Contact us at for more information.
