Favorites Of The Week {a little of this & a little of that}

This is going to be an exciting (and stressful) weekend.  My brother is going to be setting up all of our electronic and computer stuff today (which always results in a few new gadgets) and we’ve got a little more packing to do.  And tomorrow the movers come to move all our furniture.  As of Monday we’ll officially be in our new house and the unpacking will begin.

Even though I didn’t manage to do a lot of blogging this week, I did find some down time to round-up my favorites of the week.

 Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Entertaining Inspiration: Fall Tablescape

Fall Entertaining Inspiration


I love conceptualizing beautiful tablescapes and finding the unique elements that bring my vision to life.

For my fall table this year, I’m dreaming of blue and white decor with pops of orange and accents of wood.  I want the table to have a rustic but elegant feel with a vintage vibe.  Here’s how I see the table coming together…

My Fall Tablescape–Natural + Gold


Hello friends and happy Friday!

 It seems that the mother nature is going to bring an early taste of fall to Atlanta this weekend with temps in the 70’s.  Perfect timing since I just pulled together this fall tablescape and I’m beyond ready for the season to be here.


This year I decided to create a table featuring natural hues with accents of gold.  I love how it turned out and hope you do to.

 Enjoy the photos and cheers to the season!
