Friday Finds

I hope you are all getting ready for a long Labor Day weekend.  If you happen to be shopping during the holiday, I have a few finds you should check out.

This chain-link pattern Noble Essence shower curtain from Dillard's is just divine.   The good thing about bathrooms is that they're small so it doesn't take a whole lot to make them stunning.  This curtain would go a long way in transforming your space.  And best of all, it's half price!  Originally $50, it's now been marked down to $25.

Now that the weather is finally cooling down, why not spend more time outside?  These Palmetto all-weather wicker accent tables from Pottery Barn will help you do just that.  You can use it as a table or a stool in your outside area.  For $74 (originally $149), why not?

Since football season is beginning and Halloween and Thanksgiving are just around the corner, it's time to start entertaining!  What better way to showcase your yummy treats than on Martha's (yes, we're on a first name basis) adorable cake stands.  Originally $42, this 12" round cake stand is now $25.20 at Macy's.  If round isn't your preference, they also come in square shapes.  All sizes are on sale and look great stacked.



Want to get your table into the fall spirit, but in a subtle way?  Try these Sonoma Home napkin rings from Kohl's.  On sale for $1.99 (originally $3.99), they will add just the right touch of fall to your dining space.  



And let's not forget our pups.  Look at this adorable windbreaker by the Humane Society of the United States.  It's on sale for $5.98 (originally $11.98) at Toys R Us.  I think our baby, Remington, might need one of these :)

 I hope everyone has a fun and safe Labor Day weekend!  We're off to spend our's in Dallas!

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…

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…

Auden's First Birthday-Pumpkins and Pearls

It's only been 6 months now, but better late than never, right?

Auden turned one on November 11th and we celebrated at our home with close family and friends.  The theme of the party was pumpkins and pearls.  Pun'kin is one of the nicknames I called her when she was little and pearls bring a girly flair and tied into our reveal party when we found out we were having a girl so it seemed perfect.

I had so much fun creating her invitation and all of the party printables.  And for a little extra adornment, the invites were tied with jute twine and placed in scalloped envelope. Invites available for purchase here.

Here's the sweet birthday girl in her homemade hat.  I love how the bow on top turned out :)  Her birthday stats poster is now available here.

The smash cake table with our go-to milk jars (Starbuck frappuccino glasses) with paper straws.  The tree slab plate they are sitting on was also used at our wedding.  The smash cake was a $10 cake from Public and Auden LOVED …
