Tell Me Something Good

Does anyone else have that song by Rufus and Chaka Khan in their head now?  You're welcome.  Or I'm sorry, which ever applies.

I lied.  You don't have to tell me something good - just tell me something about yourself.  Yes, that's right.  I'm usually the one doing all of the rambling talking on here, but today I'd like to hear from you guys, my readers.  As I've mentioned before, I'm very thankful for all of you.  Thankful and clueless really.  While there are some of you that I know, many of you I don't.  House of Hydrangeas is growing every day.  With over 4000 views this past month alone, I can't help but wonder who in the world (or world wide web) I am talking to.  So I think you should tell me.  

You seem to be a quiet bunch so to bring you out of your shell (i.e. get you talking, commenting more- don't be afraid!), I'd like you to tell me this... 

1. Your name (or nickname is your prefer a little anonymity).  
2. Your favorite type of thing I write about on the blog
3. Your favorite room in your home.

That's it!  Easy peasy.

Here, I'll even go first to give you an example.
1.  Mallory, aka Mal Pal 
2.  Personal stories and before and afters
3.  I love my dining room!

Feel free to go into more detail if you'd like, but even just a little something (I know your time is valuable) will make me smile.

And even if you think I already know you read my blog, I'd still love to hear from you!  Your comments always brighten my day!

I get back from Virginia tomorrow...my goal is to have just as many comments as I do views for the day.  Are you up for the challenge? :)  I'd love to come home to an inbox full of comments... and my sweet hubby and Remington of course!

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…
