Dear Genevieve


Does anyone else feel compelled to immediately go scour flea markets after watching Dear Genevieve?  Maybe it's just me... as if my urge isn't bad enough already.  She and her team always snatch up the best finds.  Yet another reason why New York City is so great and should be frequented by me much more often :)
This is one of my favorite designs she just recently did on her show.  This NYC studio apartment needed a major overhaul in the living room--luckily Genevieve was able to transform it to a thing of beauty.  And even though I don't normally go for pink, Genevieve totally rocked the pale pink walls.  This space is a perfect mix of eclectic antiques and modern charm-bohemian romance I like to call it.

*Please excuse the TV photos.  HGTV may be good at a lot of things, but they are horrible at posting pictures from their shows.  Lucky for you, I still had the episode saved in our DVR and was able to pause the scenes and snap a few shots.*

Group a collection of mirrors and photos together to make one big art piece.


Genevieve Gorder is her name and built-ins are her game.  As usual, these built-ins look stunning and like they've been here the whole time.   The scalloped arch is to die for.

P.S. You know another reason why I love Genevieve?  She didn't go to school for interior design either.  Nope.  She was a graphic design major (my minor) and look at her now!  Now she's designing beautiful spaces that I would proudly call my own.  

Oh and she totally used the coffee table that I want from Wisteria on her last show!  I told you we had the same taste :)

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 …
