Friday Finds

Thank goodness for finds! :) Here are a few great deals that I've recently stumbled upon. Hope you enjoy them...and your Friday!

This 5' x 7' Safavieh "Soho" Turquoise Area Rug from Macys.com is on sale for $598.99. I know that might not seem like a great deal, but considering it was originally $1,129.00 and is a hand-tufted wool rug, it's a GREAT deal! The colors and medallion design are right up my alley. Simply beautiful.


If you don't want to spend that much, check out this other stunning rug from Macys.com. This gorgeous golden 5' x 8' Surya Area Rug is on sale for $329, originally $549.


If you have a thing for vintage glassware like I do, then these vintage inspired plum beauties from World Market are for you. Unfortunately the pitcher is all sold out but the dot tumblers and juice glasses are still in stock and on sale for 50% off! Originally $15.96 for a set of 4, they're now $7.92. I love the hint of color and textured glass. Oh so charming. Don't they just make you want have a patio party and make some lemonade?


This antique style wire chair from Urban Outfitters would be the perfect edition to a casual breakfast nook or an outside patio. I love the sleek lines are married with the rustic finish. Originally $78.00, they're now on sale for $49.00.


These glass pillar candle holders from Z Gallerie are a must have. They are perfect for a casual or sophisticated look, fitting into any decor due to their simple design and glass makeup. And better yet, they're on sale! Originally $16.99 (11") and $14.99(9"), they're now $9.99.

Unfortunately, Jon will be out of town for the next 4 days so I'm thinking I need a new project to keep me occupied. I'm about to head to Hobby Lobby, so the possibilities are endless!

Southern Gentleman Baby Shower

Last month I helped throw my best friend (we met in 9th grade speech class :)) Lauren's baby shower for her soon-to-arrive baby boy, Gunner.  The shower had a "Southern gentleman" theme complete with bow ties, silhouettes and gingham print.  Personal touches and family items were used throughout, including baby Gunner's dad's bow ties :)


Gunner's daddy's "going home" outfit greeted guests at the sign in table, along with a framed "Southern gentleman in the making" print.


A variety of centerpieces graced the tables with groupings of baby mementos, flowers and photos.

An antique baby basket helped house the gifts.
The drink menu consisted of milk, apple juice (one of Lauren's cravings), fruit-infused water and coffee.
The menu was made of a variety of brunch goodies including fruit, doughnuts, muffins, shrimp and grits, breakfast casserole and a waffle bar. 
And of course no shower is complete without a little something sweet. These b…

Planes or Pearls? Gender Reveal Party

On Friday, June 28th, Jon and I headed out to see the gender of Baby Reutter.  Jon wanted to find out as soon as possible, and I wanted to wait to be surprised with everyone at the reveal party the next day. So we decided that he would find out and be the one set up the "big reveal."  Baby Reutter didn't want to cooperate on the first attempt but after some cold water, walking around and sweet patience from the ultrasound tech, we got the "money shot."  I'm not going to lie, it was a bit torturous at first to not be in the know with Jon, but after the first few hours, I was good to go and so excited about the surprise for the next day.  Here we are about to head out to the reveal appointment.
Now for the reveal party on Saturday...As mentioned before, I wanted a unique theme for the party.  Since Jon is a pilot, I thought planes would be a cute idea for a boy.  For the girl, I thought of pearls; they're sweet, feminine and also happen to be my birthsto…

Giraffe 1st Birthday

Over two months later, I'm finally getting around to posting on my nephew Cohen's first birthday!  Because he was born just six days before Christmas, it was important to my sister, Meredith, to have a party to make him feel special, separate of the normal seasonal celebrations.  And I'm always up for a planning a good party!

Since Cohen was little baby, he has loved giraffes.  First introduced with the paper mache bust hanging over the changing pad in his nursery(here), my sister says he's been a fan ever since.  Using that as the inspiration, the party planning began.  Meredith found an invitation she liked at Tiny Prints and thus the color palette of green, yellow and brown was established.


Cohen wore a monogrammed yellow chevron coverall on the big day, and the cheerful pattern was also used throughout the party.  To create a prominent backdrop on the fireplace mantel, we covered a remant piece of beadboard with chevron fabric.  It made a big statement with little…
