This was the week that it hit me: the holidays are coming! I heard bits of festive music on the radio, started shopping locally for thoughtful gifts and began mulling over some recipe ideas for a few big feasts we're planning. Mostly, I'm stoked to decorate our new casa for the season!
WHAT WE'RE LOVING THIS WEEK
Foraging for floral gold is seriously one of the best ways to spend a beautiful afternoon in our sunny state. Veronica strolled around her adorable Miami neighborhood in search of green additions to her store bought flowers so she could create a stunning centerpiece for any fall tablescape. The step-by-step process was captured by Miranda Hattie Photography so, no excuses! Grab your shears and get to it!
Some natural beach style inspiration we can totally get behind!
Hard to believe it's been one year since our Floridian reLaunch Party. What a blast!
I'm such a sucker for incredibly bright, unexpected pops of color like this red, orange and gold combo.
My jaw literally dropped when I saw this ceremony backdrop centered by a large scale dusty miller covered frame. Love.
These dip dyed escort cards are so delicious don't you think?
There's been Friendsgiving chatter amongst some local pals so I'm rounding up a few ideas starting with a pomegranate mulled cider, then a shaved brussels and cranberry salad and finishing with these mini bourbon pecan cheesecakes. Yum!
We're still working on making our new house a home, so I can appreciate these personal tips that remove some of the overwhelming thoughts surrounding this task.
I'm currently working on inspiration for an extra special room and this modern dreamcatcher fits in perfectly!
