Friday Finds

Macy's is having a closeout sale on so many items.  This Crestview table lamp is one of them.  Originally $149, it is now $49.97 and oh so fabulous.


In case you didn't know already, Elle Decor now has a line at Kohl's.  You can't beat Elle Decor style for Kohl's prices...especially when those prices are even lower because of a sale!  This Elle Decor box was originally $39.99 and is now $19.99.  It would be great for housing jewelry or for holding remotes and other trinkets that clutter your coffee or side table.

These stools are a nice spinoff on the saddle stools that everyone has now.  I love the detailing in the legs and the slightly distressed look.  Originally $104, these Powell Pennfield stools are now $52 each with free shipping!

This jute and bamboo collapsible tote is available at World Market.  These totes are great for carrying things around the house (as shown here), to a tailgate or picnic, home from the grocery store, etc.  They usually run around $30.  I have a red nylon one that I use all of the time.  But I really loved the look of this one...jute, bamboo...yes please!  In fact, I loved this tote so much, that I ordered one for myself!  And it helps that it's on sale for $9.99 (originally $19.99).  These make great gifts too!...especially when monogrammed.


Happy Friday and happy shopping!

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…
