A Children’s Bedroom Ready for Christmas

Friday, December 15th, 2017




Happy Friday Everyone! We hope you had a good week and have a weekend planned full of Christmas festivities!

We just wanted to pop on to show you the twins’ bedroom decked out for Christmas. One thing we love about decorating with neutrals is that you only need to add a few pops of color to change things for the season… we just fell in love with these happy red pillow covers that were only $6 at Ikea. Red ribbon, fresh holly and berries and a few red toys and we’re done.

Ahh, if it only it stayed this nice and clean for more than five minutes!

A few sources: red cushion cover HERE | tea set HERE | picnic set HERE | London playset HERE | play kitchen (similar) HERE (we love this matching apron and oven mit set HERE) | dolls cribs HERE | white Christmas jammies HERE | little people nativity HERE.

Merry Christmas!!!!
Sarah and Emily xoxo

The Simplest DIY Gift Wrap & Sarah’s Christmas Cards

Thursday, December 7th, 2017


When it’s time to order our Christmas cards, we are always inspired by so many design choices. We love browsing through all the options Shutterfly has to offer, and no doubt, we are always thrilled when our cards show up.

This year was no exception! Sarah chose candid photos from the year with a gate fold opening to a family photo. Making all the photos black and white is an easy way to give consistency to photos in any grouping, whether that be a gallery wall or a Christmas card. We just love the classic look of black and white (did you see that buffalo check envelope liner?!).

This idea inspired us to have some fun with gift wrap. Multiple designs with a simple palette of black and white. We used printer paper for small gifts and butcher paper from the craft store for larger gifts. A black coloring pencil, crayon, or marker is all you need to start doodling away.

In a matter of seconds you have your own unique gift wrap we know every one will love Christmas Day!
