    As a follow up to yesterday’s post, where I shared my experience heading into Bed Bath & Beyond to create my dream registry, I shared 3 different registry wish lists that I would create if I could do it all over again today! Luckily for me, I actually got to take these pieces home and share with you guys how I would style them! Read on for my picks and some great inspiration photos for bringing your registry to life!

    My first registry recommendation was a list with everything you need to host a dinner party. I chose the Olivia & Oliver Harper Organic Shape Gold 5-Piece Place Setting for my dishware because it is simply elegant, plus I just love anything gold-rimmed these days. An added perk is that a simple china pattern like this one can easily be mixed and matched with other pieces you have at home {in case you have extra guests!}. Another thing I included on my list which I didn’t realize was incredibly important until just recently, was great bakeware. I hate baking things in the oven and transferring them over to platters… it’s added cleanup and often times ruins the display! I am all for something pretty that can go directly to the table or buffet, and this Le Creuset 10-Piece Bakeware Set which I chose in white, is it! See my full list below for everything on my table {when registering I recommend enough for 8-12 guests!}.

    Next up was my bar wish list. I think it’s so classy to have a glass for every kind of drink {and my husband loves it too!}. Fancy coupes for girls nights, low ball glasses for the guys scotch nights, and then how fab are these Brandy glasses?! No bar would be complete without a great wine opener {the rabbit is life-changing… you can open a bottle of wine in seconds!} and your bar essentials which come organized in a Top Shelf 6-Piece Bar Tool Set. See below for my full list! I recommend sets of 8 – 12 of each glass.

    Last but not least was a beautiful start to the day… everything to host breakfast at home. Here in my photos I focused on my new obsession in particular, juicing! The Cuisinart® Compact Juice Extractor is so easy, my kids love making our morning juices! Then I am all about a clean selection of whites for the kitchen, so the Everyday White by Fitz and Floyd at Bed Bath & Beyond were some of my favorites. Here is my full list:

    It’s amazing how different things look in a home than on a shelf, am I right? I hope this opened your eyes to a few new pieces you may not have considered for your registry. And if you are still in need of help, don’t hesitate to reach out to me, or to make an appointment online with a registry consultant at Bed Bath & Beyond!

    This post is in partnership with Bed Bath & Beyond. This past week I got the opportunity to register all over again {sounds like a dream right!!}. Even though it’s been less than five years since I registered for my own wedding, there is so much I would do over. The quantities I would request in dinnerware, the options that are now available in coffee makers and juicers, the list goes on. So I was so excited that Bed Bath & Beyond teamed up with me so I could 1. Share more about the registry process with you guys… how easy it is, my experience in…

    Well guys, Brooks’s big boy room is finished thanks to RH Baby & Child!! I can’t stop talking about how amazing their design services was right down to the finishing touches… the experience combined with the outcome is better than I could have imagined. Remember I had my in-home consultation, my in-store design meeting, so the final step was installation day!! In case you forgot what his old room looked like, check out the before in this FH post. First we chose “Cashmere Grey” as the new color for the walls. It’s a great grey…. so neutral, a great backdrop for any space, and looks amazing…

    Today I wanted to share a tablescape that I created over the Holidays… not for any specific occasion, but just because I ended up hosting endless dinners during the course of December, and this was too pretty not to share. What I love though is that you really can replicate the table year round, and for pretty much any occasion. A dinner party, bridal shower, birthday, or girls night. Some takeaways from my tables… 1. Note is that I mixed and matched my silver Villeroy & Boch plates and silver silverware with napkins that have gold embroidery… I am totally…

    Ok, so I wasn’t as organized as I hoped and totally missed the boat on Family Holiday Cards… BUT THERE WAS STILL HOPE!! As I shared in this post, Minted has amazing New Year’s cards that are beautiful and perfect for sending out NOW {especially with all of the family photos you captured over the Holidays!!}. I chose this design in a flat card, with double thick paper and white envelopes that have our return address printed on the back. Reasons why I love Minted: 1. Minted holiday cards are one of a kind because they are sourced from and support a global community of independent artists. 2. Their Luxe…
