ENTERTAINING PRETTIES FOR FALL + THE HOLIDAYS

October 16, 2022

I’ve never been the biggest fan of decorating with shades of red, but I have to say, lately I’m loving wine paired with lots of texture, silver, a little ironstone and, of course, a few topiary for the table! I found the prettiest gingham napkins in burgundy and they inspired me to do a roundup…

DIY HALLOWEEN BATS

October 13, 2022

I shared a photo on Insta yesterday of some bat decorations I put up every year for the kids and I got so many questions about where I found them, that I decided to do a post on them here! I actually made these myself years ago; I printed out a bat template online and…

JULY 4TH 2022

July 5, 2022

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend and a fabulous Fourth of July! The tropical storm that was supposed to blow through diverted and we had the most amazing weather, which lent itself to an equally incredible long weekend with friends, family, food and pool time and it was truly one of the…
