Fall Table Setting With Dried Flowers

Throughout the year, I save a few flowers from any bouquets I receive and dry them. Some of my favorites to dry are roses and hydrangeas. The colors become rich and are the perfect accent for your Fall tables. For roses, I hang them upside down and using a rubber band secure them to a door knob for a week or two. Hydrangeas do not need to hang upside down, they will dry perfectly in the vase.

So give your flowers a longer shelf life, dry them and add a pop of vibrant color to your tabletops. Enjoy!

Good Collaborations In Art, Fashion & Home Decor

I am a huge fan of Kelly Wearstler, she is the ultimate interior, product and fashion designer extraordinaire. She’s fearless with her designs and continues to push the envelope. I was so happy to see her team up with another fearless artist, Shantell Martin.
The two have created one-of-a-kind pieces ranging from homewares to a scarf and leather jacket. Some of these limited items are still available at 1stdibs.com.

Graphic Designers Jessica Walsh and Timothy Goodman have created another crazy project that I’m loving. Quotes on Shit (yes, that is what it’s called) is the simple idea that we all use and waste too many things in our lives.

Through paint and typography, they breathe new life into items that have been thrown away. You can follow this project via Instagram and make a bid for any items that you like.

Another cool collaboration that happened last month was Pharrell Williams teaming up with Colette-Paris.
The music producer produced 14 very snazzy items that were sold at the concept store during ‘Pharrell Week’. This is the second collaboration between the two, so I’m sure another will be coming soon.

Five Creative Holiday Decor Ideas

The holidays are quickly approaching, and each year I try to think of creative ways to change up my decor. It can get pretty boring using the same decorations, but it can also be costly to purchase new items too. Here are some easy, inexpensive ways to update your decor and add a little pizzazz.

Yarn Pine Cones – It can’t get any easier than wrapping pine cones with colored yarn. You can use any color. I think gold, silver or bronze metallic yarns would be very pretty too.

Holiday Card Display – I love the idea of including your holiday cards within your decor. It’s so thoughtful and such a treat to receive cards, so why not put them on display for all of your guests to admire?

Seashell Garland – Think outside the box with garland, you can use not only seashells, but anything that can be strung.

Handmade Crayon Wreath – Kids are sure to love this wreath! You would simply glue the crayons to wooden embroidery hoops, which can be purchased from the craft store.

Bottle Cap Snowman Ornaments – Instead of throwing away your bottle caps throughout the year, save them and make these cute, whimsical ornaments.
