Sparkle for the Table

2015-fall-kim-seybert-laurel7mHello! Welcome to the final days of 2015.

Last week, I took a little time off to spend with family and just make the most of the merriment, but I sure missed being here. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, and are winding down 2015, while gearing up for 2016. So many people I know are out of town this week, but I truly love being home. I’m cleaning out, getting organized and taking advantage of some prime family time.

With most of our friends out of town, I won’t be hosting a big NYE celebration, but if I was, I would absolutely be setting a table full of sparkle and glitter. It’s one night where “more is more”. Layer it on… the more glam the better.

I was admiring some tabletop items by Kim Seybert and then realized she has the most glamorous placemats, runners and napkin rings out there. Makes me want to have a party!!2015-fall-kim-seybert-mirror4m 2015-fall-kim-seybert-mirror3m 2015-fall-kim-seybert-fete6m 2015-fall-kim-seybert-diamond2m 2015-fall-kim-seybert-city-slickerm 2015-fall-kim-seybert-aurora2m

Are you hosting a fancy NYE celebration? Even if it’s just a party for 2, it’s the perfect night to pull out all the stops.

Here’s to ringing out the year in style!


Friday Fashion Find: Twig & Twine

Earthy. Organic. Statement pieces. That’s what sisters, Elizabeth Stafford White and Jacquelyn Stafford Buckner, have created with their new line of jewelry, Twig & Twine. Each piece is one-of-a-kind and features their signature suede strap, along with naturally sourced eco-friendly materials from around the world. 
With price points from $50-$250, these necklaces are wearable art.

I knew I was on to something when I saw who stocks their pieces. Among them are 2 of my favorite shops, Charlotte-based Poole Shop (housed within Capitol) and And George in Charlottesville, VA.

I went for an antler, which suits my Texas roots, but the shell version would be so pretty at the beach.

And speaking of chic, someone is going to start their weekend off right, with a new set of Lettermade cocktail napkins! 

The winner of the give away is: melissabinmo! Melissa, send me an email at so we can get these out to you! 
Let’s get this party started!
