1. Thanksgiving Kids Table with Skip Hop





    I have shared so many beautiful ideas for my Thanksgiving table over the last few weeks, but I left out the most fun table of all… my kids table!! Anytime we have a family dinner party, we always set up a little table alongside the adults for the little ones to dine at. While I prep my table, my kids work alongside me decorating their own; they can’t wait to choose their plates, silverware, and even demand flowers! So I was so excited to partner with Skip Hop, my go-to for kids plates, cups and silverware, to create their Holiday table, especially with their adorable Zoo Collection!

    Reese instantly fell in love with the new unicorn design, while I just love the giraffe design for Brooks, although we also love to mix and match. The plates have a little division making it perfect for their Thanksgiving servings – the top portion for turkey and veggies and the bottom for mashed potatoes and cornbread. Then the matching bowls are perfect for dessert. Also my kids just love the thick silverware {the thickness combined with the soft side grips makes it so easy for the little ones to hold!}. Of course all the Zoo Tableware is made of durable melamine and is dishwasher-safe.

    To really get in the spirt, I chose a Thanksgiving theme, crayon-friendly, paper tablecloth {see it here}; perfect for any messes or simply occupying time while the adults schmooze post-meal. The finishing touch was my tiniest carnation arrangement in a kid-friendly vase, ie. a Skip Hop cup!

    I hope this inspires you to make your little ones feel just as special as the adults this Holiday!

  2. Restoration Hardware Baby & Child In Home Consultation


    As I shared last week, I am so excited to be partnering with Restoration Hardware Baby & Child to transform Brooks’s baby nursery into a toddler room. My husband and I have been talking about how Brooks is ready for a toddler bed rather than a crib ever since he turned two, so I was thrilled when we decided to team up with RH. As I sat down to talk about Brooks and what he does in his room, I realized he really has outgrown much more than just the crib. While I loved the baby blue color on the walls I wanted…

  3. Brooks’s Baby Nursery


    As you may have seen on my instagram, I am so excited to be partnering with Restoration Hardware Baby & Child to transform my little boy’s room from the sweetest nursery to a big boy toddler room. I realized that before I start to share the detailed process of working with their design team, I needed to actually share with you guys a closer look at his current room. I absolutely love this cozy space, as does Brooks. As I explained to the design team, it’s a place where we play quietly at the end of the day {the craziness after school…

  4. Fall Festivities


    Since moving to Miami, we’ve had to be really creative in creating “Fall vibes”… first, we decorated our house with wreaths and pumpkins, then we threw a cute kids Halloween party, and today we did some DIY apple and pear picking. Kind of like an easter egg hunt I sprinkled fresh fruits throughout the yard and gave the kids little baskets to collect their finds. Of course my youngest came back with equally as many rocks and leaves as fruits, but they sure had a blast. For Fall days, I love Reese in Old Navy Fit & Flare dresses. They are such an easy…

  5. Host a Kids Halloween Party


    This is our first Halloween in our new house so we couldn’t wait to get together with friends for a night of costumes and games. As I shared in a previous post, I hate that Halloween has turned into a total sugar-fest {especially with my kids being so young!}, so for this Halloween Party, I thought of some fun and festive activities for the kids to show them another side of Halloween. Who needs to overload on candy when there’s so much deliciousness with these adorable faces!! Decor: The party began long before actual guests arrived and it was a total group effort. I bought 30 mini…
