Mixed Metal Farmhouse Christmas Tree

My home style is all about farmhouse living with a modern twist. Our home is decorated in warm, earthy tones. I wanted the tree to fit in and feel right at home in our living room so I incorporated gold, white and green ornaments and mixed silver, gold and brown metals. 

This year we upgraded to a 12′ tree. I purchased and started to decorate a 9′ tree but when my hubby returned home from a trip, he vetoed my 9′ tree and we un-decorated it and exchanged it for a 12′!… Read more

Fall Home Decor and How I Decorated Our House

Fall Home Decor and How I Decorated Our House

Fall is my favorite! The crisp weather, terra-cotta and earthy hues, pumpkin everything, I live for it. I thrive in fall and our home accepts fall decor so well because it’s basically my decor palate year-round. I didn’t get too wild with fall home decor this year, but I did add a few touches around the house and I thought I’d share.

Fall Home Decor

I always start with seasonal decor on the porch. Our home has a lovely wrap-around porch and I love to spruce it up and decorate the entry stoops. For our main entry, I used corn husks attached to the posts framing our front door and added a few mums, pumpkins and fall wreaths from Target a few years ago. In October I put the skeletons out and simply remove them after Halloween.

For our side door, I layered the cutest “hope you brought wine” doormat over a  buffalo check indoor/outdoor rug. I love to decorate for fall with heirloom pumpkins. Little did I know my chickens would enjoy them for a snack!… Read more

A Simple Easter Table on the Patio

A Simple Easter Table on the Patio

Easter is right around the corner! If you need an idea for a simple Easter table check out this one I put together. The weather has been so nice so consider taking your Easter gathering outside and set up on the patio or another outdoor area in your home.

A Simple Easter Table on the Patio

I used the outdoor dining table on our patio. To elevate the look of the dining table, I covered it with layered tablecloths. I used a light weave nude cloth over a white tablecloth. I happened to have two vintage folding garden chairs that fit into the color scheme so I used them in place of two of the stools. Use what you have, friends!

You don’t need much to make a beautiful tablescape. In my simple Easter table, I used a gorgeous floral arrangement as my show-stopper moment (thank you Florist Fire) and used what I have to create the rest of the table decor.

If you’re hosting an Easter brunch, consider mini smoothies for everyone. Not only are they cute but smoothies are delish and perfect for a spring gathering.… Read more

Remember our pretty St. Patrick’s Day tablescape? We’re so excited to have it featured over on Pizzazzerie today! Head over to Courtney’s blog to see the entire feature.

For our soft, elegant St. Patrick’s Day table centerpiece we used a minty green linen runner with white and green florals in a large urn as the focal point with smaller flower arrangements along the table.

St. Patrick's Day

This St. Patrick’s day table centerpiece was inspired by an Irish garden and features a living runner of moss and florals along the length of the table.

I love the idea of incorporating green cabbage for a St. Patrick’s Day table centerpiece. Use the cabbage as a vessel to hold a small floral arrangement or use small heads of green cabbage mixed in with florals to create a unique centerpiece.

I love the use of the green handled tin in this example.… Read more

NYE Rosé and Dessert Party

Ladies, what better way to ring in the new year with your girlfriends with a NYE rosé and dessert party? For NYE inspiration this year we created a heck of a party, right in the Daly Digs dining room, proving you  too can deck out a space at home for some festive entertaining.

Serve a welcome cocktail at the door. 

Welcome guests with a tray of self-serve cocktails. Prepare a large batch in advance and just before guests are scheduled to arrive, pour over ice and serve. Try a cocktail fitting for fall like a spiced pear cocktail.

12 oz Vodka
Seeds of 1 vanilla bean
Dash Cinnamon
Sliced pear for garnish
Blend & serve over ice
(makes 8 cocktails)

As you all know, I’m obsessed with tablescapes so here’s a last minute Thanksgiving idea for styling your tabletop.

Add an unexpected element. 
Impress your guests with a fun and unique element. We created individual charcuterie boards for each guest which is a cute alternative to a large charcuterie board. For another impactful moment, we repurposed a large round candle holder as a focal point floral centerpiece.

Vintage All-American 4th of July Party

Summer is here and it’s almost the 4th of July! Are you planning a 4th of July party? Today I’m sharing inspiration for a vintage all-American 4th of July party featuring a killer burger bar and tablescape with traditional Americana elements like vintage soda bottles, Cracker Jacks and motorcycle vibes.

Check out this awesome 4th of July stationery! You should know by know that I’m a big fan of sending coordinating invites when hosting a party.
What better way to celebrate 4th of July than a burger bar? To style our vintage all-American burger bar I used vintage soda crates, an American flag backdrop and vintage accessories. Burger labels coordinate with the invitations. Look at those cute motorcycle cut outs I love the idea of displaying French fries in these friers! You could even place one at each place setting for your guests. Indigo textiles, wood tones and vintage books round out the display.  Vintage-inspired condiment containers are a must! Home Depot has some, they’re awesome!
4th of July party decorating can be pretty!… Read more
