    As a continuation from Monday’s post where I shared a recent project styling for a luxury furniture rental company – today’s reveal is the second portion I styled. This was the “Manly Edition” aka the “Mad Men Inspired Bar” debuting Please Be Seated’s new wooden bar {the Jackson Bar Facade} alongside their leather armchairs {the Albert armchair} and copper nesting tables. To bring this project to life I envisioned a bar packed with some of the best whiskeys and gins, endless bar tools for mixing and shaking {like this bar set and a martini shaker}, masculine gold accents like this Scoppio Sphere and a gold decanter, and bar snacks like salted nuts. The look was simple – but a place I knew my husband and his buddies would totally appreciate. Shop the accessories at the bottom of this post!

  2. Outdoor Bridal Shower Party

    Right when I moved to Nashville I met Mary Huddleston the owner and founder of Please be Seated, a Luxury Event Rental Company. We immediately clicked lunching over party stories, decor concepts, and being mothers {our daughters are the same age}. So when she mentioned partnering for an upcoming photo shoot showcasing her new bars and ghost chairs to create the perfect feminine wedding vignette, I was excited to volunteer myself to style it! Debuting in the shoot where Please Be Seated’s new bar, the Vivian Bar Facade which is a gorgeous natural wood bar with a custom panel design {with white and grey…

  3. Retail Me Not

    The kids are officially back-to-school which means pick-ups, drop-offs, and after school activities have arrived! While short on time I decided I would try out Hello Fresh {a food delivery service} so I could at least cross the grocery store off my todo list! As I perused the different options for meals I wondered if there was a discount online somewhere for new customers. My friend recently told me about a site {and app} RetailMeNot.com where she goes for coupons and deals before shopping, so I checked it out, and what did I find? An AMAZING deal for new Hello Fresh customers, 3…

  4. Host a Fall Dinner Party: Harvest Inspired

    Now that Fall has kicked off, I am excited to start creating an array of harvest-inspired tablescapes for my upcoming dinner parties. And, what I love most about these tabletops is that with all the fabulous Fall veggies in stores, you really don’t have to go crazy on flowers to create a beautiful centerpiece arrangement! For today’s post I partnered with Pier 1 to create the perfect Fall Tabletop and I was ecstatic because I have been eyeing their copper collection, like their Moscow Mule Mugs and matching pitcher for some time. {See my moscow mule recipe here.} They also…

  5. Fall Adventures

    To mark the first day of Fall, the kids and I headed to the grocery to pick up an array of pumpkins, squash and gourds to decorate the house {and the kids couldn’t be have been more thrilled!}. Once we got home we spent all afternoon finding little nooks to place them, starting with our front steps, moving all of the way to this corner of our back gate. The weather was so nice that it was hard to convince the kids to finally head in for dinner! Thanks to the recent shift in weather, I went on a bit of a shopping spree on…
