1. Holiday Bar Cart

    christmasbarcart_blogsize-1christmasbarcart_blogsize-3

    After sharing my Holiday Home Tour I had to share a closer look at my gorgeous Holiday Bar Cart display! A bar cart is such an easy way to transform a party from average to festive. Welcome guests with a bar cart right at your entrance filled with a display of welcome drinks, or pull up your bar cart alongside your couch for an added side table display of nutcrackers and mini pine trees. By placing this one in my family room, I had a fab new space to display an array of gold and glittery Holiday pieces.

    You probably remember these World Market Nutcrackers from last year’s Holiday Fireplace Mantel. Then alongside my nutcrackers I have a few bottles of Splash Mixers – a delish party cocktail mixer that’s all natural and only 20 calories {I have to say the bottle is so chic!}. On my top shelf I have Chandon’s Limited Edition Holiday 2016 Brut Classic created by fashion designer Rebecca Minkoff, which I plan to serve in my favorite stemless champagne flutes that say “cheers” in an array of languages {from Z Gallerie}. The crisp-white Festival linen cocktail napkins by Sferra are my go-to “dressy napkins” for the Holiday season {and make for a great hostess gift!!}. And lastly, the “Merry Christmas” drink mixers were a last minute find in the Target dollar section {see other fun party props here!}.

    Cheers to the Holidays!

  2. Decorate your Fireplace Mantel for the Holidays

    It’s officially the Holiday season, and in my opinion one of the prettiest Home Decor seasons of the year! I love decorating little pockets of my home to be festive and this year I can’t get enough of whites, golds, and glitter. I headed to World Market’s Christmas Shop where they have some of the sweetest Holiday decorations and got started on my favorite place to decorate in my home, my living room fireplace mantel. To create the look I first found a set of 3 nutcrackers which I place in the center, on either end of the mantel I placed white glitter…

  3. Decorate your Dining Room for Christmas

    Sometimes simplicity can be the most elegant of all. So when decorating my dining room for upcoming Christmas parties, I focused on just that. I am in love with the Christmas decorations by Simon Pearce {you know well how I love white, obviously!}, so their pieces couldn’t be more perfect to create the aesthetic I was going for. From an assortment of glass and frosted glass trees that I placed on my mantel, to a variety of glass ornaments that I placed on garlands throughout the room, I am excited to share today how it all came together! To create today’s look, I started…

  4. Decorate your Foyer for Christmas

    After decorating my mantel for the Holidays {see here}, I couldn’t wait to swap my foyer from Fall to Holiday as well. I took out an array of gold and white vases to house some of my favorite Holiday flowers and plants, and then I headed to Import Flowers {my go-to spot for flowers in Nashville} where I found the most stunning boxwood wreath. To compliment my festive look I wanted to be cozy and chic, kind of like the new display. I chose my new M. Gemi Onda Boots which I also wore in this post paired back to a…

  5. Holiday Decor in Photos

    While I love elegant decor for the Holidays, for today’s post I wanted to share a more intimate and cozy display that I created with our kids for a night of Holiday presents. We headed to CVS where we printed some of our favorite family photos, ones with cousins, grandparents, and even great grandparents, and hung them from a sweet garland on our fireplace mantel. Reese especially loved the display, pointing to each photo saying “Oh that’s me and Gigi in Miami” or “Look, there’s Uncle Chundy!”. Then when it came time for gifts, we ditched the usual gift tags and “labeled”…
