Holiday Table

I can’t drop gobs of money on holiday decorating but I adore a gorgeous holiday table. I find if you take a great idea and multiply it by many the effect is fantastic! Case in point is the idea below which I discovered on Design Love Fest and was devised and created by the Bash Please girls. This idea is
simple, creative and impactful! Read more about the details and how to pull it together yourself here. 
This would make a perfect piece for a buffet table and at a smaller scale and lower height the dining table. If you weren’t up for or didn’t have time to paint the holiday balls with color, I think it would look just as snazzy with various sized silver or gold balls!

Color Me Pretty: Christmas

The holidays are beautiful in almost (key word here) every way and entertaining for the holidays is fun and festive. Below I’ve shared some fabulous holiday greatness and goodies!

3. The table: layer silver and gold balls in bowls over a plaid table cloth,  finish it off with a mix of white blooms.

Happy Weekend, Happy Holidays

Remember Cottage Living? Of course you do! I loved receiving that magazine for it’s stylish yet affordable interiors. An all time favorite were the holiday photos of Lee Kleinhelter’s snazzy digs in Georgia. (Image one) Those window treatments and that tree are beyond good! I dug into the archives and shared a few of their other holiday shots with you. I’m heading to Vermont for our tree this weekend. I hope to share some holiday snippets via Instagram. I really need to get that account up and running!! (I sadly recently joined and sharing more work with you all is on my “hit”list)

Deck the Halls

Besides the warm sunny days of July and August, the holiday season is my favorite time of year. Decorating your home beautifully doesn’t need to break the bank. Here’s a round up of holiday decor that will add a bit of sparkle and warmth to your home. I tried to include an array of ideas, hopefully one of the styles appeals to you! Happy Decorating. I’m heading Vermont with my kiddies to chose our tree this weekend. It’s becoming a favorite holiday tradition in our home.
