1. Decorate your Bar Cart for Halloween


    I have been having so much fun decorating the bar cart on my patio, and while my Fall display was beautiful, the kids were excited to shift gears towards Halloween ever since we started brainstorming costumes! To create my Halloween Bar Cart I added cutesy details like a cup full of Halloween straws, and assorted size jars filled with m&ms in candy corn flavor {yes, that’s a thing!}, faux pumpkins, and copper accents like this hammered pitcher. Then the finishing touch was twirling an autumn garland {similar} around the side of the cart! But the real fun part was whipping up…

  2. Kids Halloween Party with Nestlé Pure Life


    I’ve partnered with NESTLE® PURE LIFE® to create this post! Enjoy! I love Halloween! I love dressing up, I love the pumpkins, and I love the time of year! My kids also love the holiday and have been talking about Halloween for months – what costume they want to be and how they want to carve pumpkins. It’s so sweet!

  3. Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt


    You may remember in last week’s post I talked about how we switched all of our door hardware to Schlage, taking our house from an outdated and rusted gold, to a modern and fresh silver look.

One of my favorite locks that we added from Schlage though was to our kitchen door, which is on the back side…

  4. Pretty your Tailgate Party


    Football season is here! I must admit that this time of year wasn’t always something I looked forward to, in fact it used to be a huge struggle because my husband sat glued to the TV all Saturday and Sunday, rarely coming up for air. I quickly realized if you can’t beat them, join them. So I started hosting fun tailgate parties alongside my laser focused husband, with a hearty lunch, endless snacks, and of course lots of drinks. Our house quickly became “the” place to go… dare I even say the guys thought I was cool? {It was probably in my…

  5. Dinner Party Spotlight: Randi Garret Design


    I have been a long time fan of Randi Garrett Design… she creates beautiful tablescapes, she has decorated the most gorgeous home, and she’s a mother of five {talk about goals!!}. Simply check out her Home Tour {or more recently her Fall Home Tour} and you too will fall in love with every space she touches.
