This family gallery is in my hallway and it makes me smile daily. I wanted to mix color and black and white prints so keeping the style of photography and the color of frame similar (even though they are each unique) is what brings it together. Someday I look forward to larger mats and frames for these pictures that will make a larger statement on the wall, but right now these need to be out of easy reach to little hands and bouncy balls (we encourage playing ball in our house). I love our little family!
The Knick-Knack Nancys met again to craft up something fabulous. I hosted at my house and the project I chose was garlands (that’s the rule – each hosts picks the project and gets the supplies). I can’t say how much I love garlands (see header up ^ there). Sure, they’re great for a mantle during the holidays but they add such a great touch of whimsy and playfulness anytime of the year. I love them in a kids room but they are great in any room over a doorway or swooped across a wall or over a piece of art. Give it a try. It’s easy and, as shown below, can be made into a party!
I happened to be at the Haverty’s corporate office today and had a meeting at J.J. Haverty’s own 100+ year old dining table. I am relatively sure I couldn’t handle this kind of intensity in my own dining room but it’s pretty awesome. I wonder what would happen if crumbs were dropped from the table?
I was hired to style an outdoor fireside party last weekend for newlyweds Jesse and Yvonne. Just a few weeks after their wedding they had a lot of love and bountiful libations from the wedding to share with their nearest and dearest. Cozy decor, good music, delicious food, a photo booth and lots of plaid make for a dang good time.
Our cozy fireside party was casual but special. The guests ‘ooh-ed and ahh-ed’ as they came around the corner of the house to the back yard. Our hosts wanted their first party as a married couple to be memorable and we succeeded. If it’s not too frigid where you live, go ahead and create your own glowing event!
Last week I posted about attending a party benefitting Room Service Atlanta. Tonight I visited the United Methodist Children’s Home boys cabin and it was stunning! 19 designers took over the kitchen, bathrooms, common areas and several bedrooms. The full project images are being released for sale in a couple of weeks but I can give you this sneak peek!
