GIFT GUIDE: FOR THE HOST /HOSTESS /ENTERTAINER

One of my favorite things about shopping for friends and family members at Christmas is buying something special that they wouldn’t normally buy for themselves; after the year that we’ve all had, every one of us deserves a little something luxurious, right?!

AN EASY WAY TO DRESS UP INEXPENSIVE POTTED ORCHIDS

Potted orchids are one of my favorite hostess, teacher, housewarming and “just because” gifts; with the holidays quickly approaching, it’s so easy to pop into the grocery store and grab one to take to dinner, along with a bottle of wine for the hostess, or send a few to school for teacher’s gifts for Thanksgiving!…

BEAUTIFUL NEW DESIGN BOOKS TO ADD TO YOUR CHRISTMAS LIST

ORGANIZED CHAOS + A ROUNDUP OF CHIC TRAYS

Last Friday night after the littles went to bed, I cozied up with a cocktail and immediately fell down a Pinterest rabbit hole of chic solutions for organizing all the random chaos around my home! I may share pretty pictures of my house here and on Instagram on a daily basis, but the truth is,…

FINALLY! A NIGHTSTAND FOR MOMMA’S SIDE OF THE BED

Patience was definitely not a virtue I was born with, but as the years have gone by, I’ve learned that good things really do come to those who wait and to also never settle for anything less than what you absolutely love! My nightstand may be a very poor example of this, but it’s something…
