It’s hard to keep our greenhouse and glasshouse obsession under the radar, but can you blame us? What’s even more obvious is our infatuation with Shop Terrain in Glen Mills Pennsylvania! What’s not to love about this house merged garden center and their focus on wellness, sustainability, and design? Featuring a dreamy hothouse situated within a fabulous garden shed and a tasty restaurant, chic café, and stylish shop on site, it is no wonder author and agriculture guru, Annie Novak decided this would be the spot to throw her trendy and green-inspired event!

“To all the ladies in the place with style and grace….”  If the month of May means pops of pastels, placin’ bets on ponies and raising a little hell with a beveled bourbon highball in hand…  all the while cocking your chic chapeau of course, this #BirthdayBucketList is for you. We’ve been chomping at the bit to put this gamblin’ gathering at the top of our #BirthdayBucketList but we figured in this case, slow and steady would win the race.

We wanted to unearth an experience worthy of your group of gorgeous gals where tradition took a bit of a turn… you didn’t think we’d be all big hats and mint juleps did ya? (Not to worry, both of these beautiful traditions remain solidly a part of this story) For this bucket list you’ll still worship at the alter of the Churchill Downs but your “Old Kentucky Home” is a decidedly more modern, chic and art-filled after party at relative new kid on the block, 21c Museum Hotel Louisville.

So gather your favorite guys and gals, grab those fabulous fascinators and head to Louisville to host a bourbon-filled bluegrass bash at the Derby and 21c – our cards are on the table and baby, they’re just showing hearts.

REPORTER: Katie David

Nothing good ever comes easy. It's a simple fact hard work pays off and without it, you miss that glorious sense of accomplishment oft copied but never really duplicated.  It takes a special person indeed to see potential in what others overlook.  The sparkling turquoise beauty you see below wasn't always as shiny and polished as it is now, at least not when Tiffany Caliva-Talledo a graphic and motion designer living in Ventura County, CA purchased it. She runs a small motion design company called FarmHand Studios and was looking for a diamond in the rough to renovate.

Her story of this beautiful, little beach house's discovery and subsequent transformation is an inspiration not only to us design & gathering gurus, but maybe it's a lovely lesson for all of us to dig a little deeper, look a little closer and take a second glance at something (or even someone?) we would normally pass right by.  As for it's current state, we'd say this beach house is picture-perfect for a bohemian beach bachelorette party, gorgeous girls getaway or sweet weekend escape. It's almost booked through 2016 so get to gathering!

Imagine a sunshine-drenched suite on the second-floor of an estate house with verdant green stretching itself toward the glistening horizon; then a giraffe peeks its head in and you casually feed it a treat. A scene this whimsical and colorful is by no means some fever dream harkening back to your childhood hope of wishful living. Giraffe Manor is the real deal, somewhere magical in the world; somewhere you can stay. And it’s this week’s #BirthdayBucketList.
