The Fox Holiday Home Tour, 2017

11.25.17

“May your home be warm, your holiday grand, and your heart held gently in our Lord’s hand.”

I can hardly believe it is Christmas time once again! It is truly the most wonderful time of the year. I am so excited to take part in my first “holiday home tour” alongside some extremely talented home decor bloggers. If you are coming from Eggshell Home, welcome! We are so excited to have you on our Cheerful Christmas Home Tour, and I’m thrilled to give you a glimpse into my own home decor for this Christmas season.

At the bottom of each section I will tag Christmas decor resources through Liketoknow.it, and any resources not tagged will be linked!

The Living Room & Kitchen

This year I decided to keep everything in our living room simple and neutral. I bought the matching mantle garland and wreath from Frontgate, and added the berries myself. The berries were bought from a store here in Houston called S Home Decor. I love the simplistic look of the greenery and white berries, and am really happy with the way it turned out!

The Dining Room

Does anyone ever feel like they set the table, it never gets used, and you have to end up re-washing the dishes before you even use them because they’ve been sitting so long? Well, me too… which is why I decided NOT to set my table this year unless we actually use it! I changed my dining room Christmas decor this year, but wanted to still keep it simple and neutral. I love the flow of the green neutrals in the living room and kitchen to the silver neutrals in our dining room!

Dining table & chairs – Manor House Trestle Table
Mercury glass chandelier – Restoration Hardware, no longer available

The Study

I’m not sure if I have shared this with you all before, but my husband and I are ultimate football rivals. He attended the University of Alabama, and I attended Auburn University. If you know anything about college football and this rivalry, then you probably know we tend not to talk much on gameday ;). Although I can’t stand that he is a Bama fan, I have gotten to the point that I can allow myself to decorate our study with BOTH Auburn and Alabama decor. I had a lot of fun decorating our study this Christmas with both our teams in mind!

Desk – St. James 76″ Desk from Restoration Hardware

A White & Gold Bridal Shower

10.29.17

“May your life together be full of love, and your love be full of life.”

I didnt take enough pictures of this shower because I ran out of time (dangit) BUT wanted to mainly write this post on how to order this fun (and really pretty) photo booth frame. This post isn’t sponsored, but instead just me wanting to share how EASY this was to get made and how amazed I was by the quality!


I ordered the photo frame file off of Etsy (linked below), and then simply uploaded the file to www.crowdsigns.com. It was made incredibly well, was super durable, and became the best prop for some fun shower photos.




The invitation, mimosa sign, and gold sequin table cloth were all ordered off of Etsy and are linked at the bottom of this post!








I LOVED showering my sweet friend alongside the other bridesmaids, and it was such a special, beautiful day!

Let’s Flamingle – A Couples Shower

10.01.17

This past weekend I had the joy of hosting a couples shower at my home for one of my best longtime friends! I had seen the theme of “Lets Flamingle” done for bachelorette parties, but wanted to use it for a couples shower… and I am SO glad I did. Yall, flamingo stuff is EVERYWHERE right now. Planning for this shower became so much fun, and I ended up finding so many flamingo items that I was having to turn my head and pretend I didn’t see them so I wouldn’t go bankrupt (like a life-size flamingo statue at HomeGoods).

Below I’ll share my favorite decorations from the shower, and at the bottom of the post I will link where I found them! By now I’m sure you’ve learned that one of my favorite things about showers and weddings are the details ;).

Invitations

These invitations were bought from Etsy (linked at the bottom of the post), which is my favorite way to get invitations made! You simply order the invitation, download it to a USB, and take it to your local UPS print store to get them made. I like to get mine made on white, linen cardstock. The quality is always beautiful!

Photo Booth


This was one of my favorite projects of the whole shower. First, I covered the walls with the white & gold polka dot wrapping paper. I attached this to the walls using poster tape from hobby lobby. Next, I added the leaves around the top of the paper and the balloons for a pop of color! These were easily attached with a hot glue gun. And finally, the “lets flamingle” balloon banner was added! The banner was attached using double sided tape. I was nervous that the poster tape wouldn’t be strong enough, but the bottom picture was actually taken the morning after the shower… so you can see (minus one drooping leaf) that it help up incredibly well. It wasn’t very difficult, and made for the CUTEST picture backdrop at the shower!

Florals


How cute are these pineapple flower arrangements? And they were SO easy! Using my new handy dandy pineapple cutter (linked below), we easily were able to remove the inside of the pineapples and insert small glasses to hold water. Add in the bigger flowers first, then smaller flowers, greenery to bring in the whimsical look, and you’re done!

This shower was SO much fun, and is definitely a theme I would recommend. I hope this post inspires you to throw your OWN flamingo themed shower or party! Thanks for stopping by, and if you’d like help finding some of the items mentioned above – see below!
