Back to School Edit

Back to School is here so I thought I would round up some of my top picks for fall. Mignonne isn’t quite old enough to go to school yet but we couldn’t help but get into the school spirit. We’re all about those fun plaid prints and florals for fall. Check out our picks below!


By Invitation Only

I’ll have to admit one of my favorite things about creating a fabulous tablescape is designing the paper products to coordinate with it. This one especially was fun because I have always been a lover of pink and green my whole life. Once the tabletop picks were selected by my friends Paige of the Pink Clutch Blog and Mary of Mrs. Southern Social, my brain immediately starting ticking and I was ready to create!


Summer in Lilly

When in Palm Beach you must wear your Lilly Pulitzer! It wouldn’t be right if you didn’t! About two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of going to Palm Beach to work with three talented ladies, Paige of the Pink Clutch Blog, Mary of Mrs. Southern Social and Andrea Kinnear Photography on a fabulous tablescape and other brand projects. When I began packing for my trip, Lilly Pulitzer reached out to collaborate and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect.


Palm Beach Table

The three amigos are back with another amazing tablescape and this time in the dreamiest location Palm Beach, Florida. For those of you that are new to my blog, I had the opportunity to team up with three other talented ladies that I met through the Southern C Summit. I’m lucky to call these girls my dear friends. We all share the same interests so this collaboration just felt natural and easy.


Patio Reveal + Memorial Day Sales

Happy Friday friends and Happy Memorial Day weekend! Summer is officially here and we finally got our patio ready just in time to enjoy it. We moved into our home a year ago and getting the patio ready was not the first thing on this list. I am one of those people that I would rather have nothing there until I can get exactly what I want. Furniture can be expensive so we waited until some of our favorites went on sale. Lucky for you almost all our furniture is on sale this weekend so I thought it was the perfect time to share it.


Charleston Part 3: Ladies Who Lunch

You know you’re living your best life when you get together with 5 talented ladies in Charleston to create a fabulous tablescape! It began with a phone call from my friend Mary Huddleston of (Mrs. Southern Social) to design paper products for an upcoming project she was working on with Paige Minear (The Pink Clutch Blog). I have been a friend with Paige for a few years so of course I said YES! I’ve always wanted to work with Paige and Mary. They are both creative mommas and Southern hostesses so it was a no brainer to work with them on this. I’m the paper queen so us 3 combined I knew it would be fab!


Charleston Part 2 : Callie’s Biscuits

If you love homemade biscuits and carbs then you will love this read! When Paige, Mary and I decided on visiting Charleston we knew we had to grab some of Callie’s biscuits while we were there. We all met Carrie Morey, founder of Callie’s Charleston Biscuits, at the Southern C Summit conference back in February. She was a guest speaker at the summit and her story was inspiring for me, especially being a mother and entrepreneur too.


Charming Charleston

When two of my best friends invited me to join them on a last minute trip to Charleston a few weeks ago, without hesitation I said YES! Of course I had to check with Brett and make sure I could find some help for Mignonne, but everything seemed to align so I booked my flight and a week later I was in one of my favorite cities with the very best company.  I’m usually not a spontaneous person, especially when it comes to travel, but this seemed like the perfect opportunity for a fabulous collaboration and some time off for this momma.
