A New Way of Hanging Decorations

Wednesday, November 25th, 2015

I about died over our glitter Christmas cards from Tiny Prints this year (HERE). I am obsessed with glitter, it makes everything better…Christmas cards being no exception!

I really wanted to make a feature of my favorite glittery snowflake decorations this year. Instead of hanging them on the tree as I normally would, I decided them to tie them onto a wooden hanger with string to make some glittery wall art for the holidays!

I am so happy with how it turned out! It makes such a such a statement instead of my favorite decorations being lost on the big tree.
I also love that I can hang this anywhere! A door, hook, or any wall, it brightens up any space.

Inspired by Christmas Cards

Monday, November 23rd, 2015

I was beyond thrilled when my rose gold foil Christmas card arrived from Tiny Prints… so beautiful and shiny (see HERE).
Copper and rose gold are classic, but so on-trend this year! My dining room was just screaming to match!

It’s amazing how a few touches of metallics grouped together make everything seem so glamorous and festive. Just a few pieces goes a long way to make things merry and bright!

I cannot wait to host a few parties in this space and show everyone my lovely Christmas cards too!

Ice-Cream Topped Hot Chocolate

Friday, November 20th, 2015

On freezing snowy days in college we’d meet our friends post classes for a favorite treat/chill session before hitting the books again.

Choose your favorite hot chocolate. Prepare as you normally would and top with your favorite ice-cream (big scoop please).

Oh those days of yonder when we didn’t give a hoot about calories.
The holidays are all about having a good time and treating yo’self, and we are big believers in this in the food department (no surprise there)!

We dare you…invite your girlfriends over one night soon for for this delicious combo and a good old fashioned catch up.

We promise, good times are to be had! xxx

Cookies in a Box Thanksgiving Gift

Wednesday, November 11th, 2015

December is always so insanely busy!
With shopping, parties, and everything else we’re trying to get ahead and are giving our neighbors’ gifts the week of Thanksgiving in lieu of Christmas this year.

Cookies wrapped in parchment, boxed and tied in string, accompanied with a gratitude note will do the job nicely.

We think this would work great for c0-workers and friends too.
A nice little gesture of thanks and getting ahead on Christmas….holler!

PS. Boxes are from HERE!
