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…

Christmas Trees-Part 2 (Rustic and Coastal)

Here are my other favorite Christmas tree styles-rustic and coastal (since we're moving to Florida).  Enjoy!

Use tea stained manila tags to create ornaments.  So simple, yet so cute.

This rustic tree has just the right mix of gold, silver and burlap...my faves!  The stockings are adorable too.

Christmas at the beach anyone?  Starfish make the perfect adornments for a coastal holiday.

Coastal blues bring this tree (and these presents) to life in this traditional home. 

This tree is full of more starfish and the hydrangeas and chartreuse color palette remind me of my wedding :)

Now to decide which style to use...or perhaps a mix of the styles is in order!  Do you change the theme of your tree every couple of years?

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…
