Today I’ve teamed up with Gordmans to put together 3 different summer centerpieces perfect for all your outdoor entertaining! I love to entertain outside during the summer and one of the keys to a beautiful spread is a pretty centerpiece- whether it be on you dining table or serving table. All 3 of these centerpieces are super quick and easy to put together and every single item I’m using came from my Lexington Gordmans store! Even better, the total of all the items together was less than $150 and these are all items you can use again and again both in your indoor and outdoor decor. All three styles are fun and summery but each slightly different: a preppy and colorful ginger jar arrangement, a simple, neutral boho arrangement, and a natural, beachy arrangement.Read More
I feel like I say this every year, but this really IS my favorite porch yet! I usually do lots of pattern and color all over but this year I decided to do a lot of cream, white, and neutrals with just a few small colorful pops! I recovered all my patio cushions using drop cloth and I could not love the finished product more (I’ll be doing a separate blogpost with more details on this too!). A lot of the newer items I added were from Target’s Magnolia Hearth + Hand line and I love the slightly retro and classic feel of them. Shop my favorite pieces and new additions and check out more of my porch details below!Read More
I love to use houseplants throughout my home to add a little color and texture to my decor. Unfortunately, so many people are afraid of trying real plants because they are SO worried about killing them and wasting their money. Trust me, I’ve killed my fair share of plants and am definitely a lazy plant owner, but through much trial and error, I’ve figured out the best plants to use that require hardly any maintenance. I’m highlighting 5 of my very favorites below and many of these also work in low-light areas too! Most of these houseplants are nearly impossible to kill (and can even be revived if you *think* you’ve killed them!) and you’ll only be watering about once a week and that’s it!Read More
