Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week?! Wow – this year has flown. (Thankfully, 2014 is coming quickly) Many of us are busy with work, friends and life bustling around us and taking time to spend time with friends during the holidays is a lot of fun. Enter – Friendsgiving – a 2nd opportunity to celebrate, dine and give thanks. This popular dinner party has created wonderful design inspiration as well and I love seeing all the fresh, cool and just fab ideas for creating the perfect tablescape for friends to enjoy.
Best tips for designing your own Friendsgiving table – be creative with your dinnerware (mixing and matching is 100% the way to go), flowers are awesome but so are other types of foliage – leaves, branches, rocks – all good and personalization goes a long way with special crafted plates per person, name tags or special gifts. Check out 4 gorgeous and celebratory tablescapes that any friend can enjoy.

Even though my baby is still ready and waiting (and kicking!) to come into this world (8 more weeks to go), I am loving all the creative, modern and cool things that she can enjoy as she gets a bit older, especially some tech options. I have seen my friends hand over their ipads and iphones to their own kids with “kid” games and haven’t been super impressed, to be honest. They seem to lack true creative options for kids. Finally – I am completely impressed and excited to see this genre grow and evolve with This Monster – a brand new app for kids by former kate spade creative, Juliana Goodman.
This Monster is a digital tale for kiddos (and adults alike) to imagine whatever they want. Full of handcrafted digital pieces, original music and color color color, the app appeals to creativity, expression and delight. Who wouldn’t love that? Check out the super sweet video below and click here to download the app for yourself, I mean your kids.
I’m sure like many of you, Instagram is now part of your daily life – a perfectly addictive spot to share daily goodies that inspire. So my life lately on Instagram….seems to involve a little baby prep inspiration, food, flowers and more. Check it out below and come visit me right here.
As a lover of gold-dipped style, these agate pieces certainly top my list. Part elegant, part jewel and all pretty, agate is a wonderful design addition to your home in all your rooms too. Classified as a volcanic rock, the natural lines and textured style is unique to every piece. Polished and cleaned, agate has become a very popular accessory in both home and fashion.
Below, check out five ways to enjoy agate. I personally love the large platter – perfect for housing a collection of accessories like frames or your jewelry. And you can mix your gold & agate jewels with simple bangles that you have in your collection.
