Conrad's 1st Birthday

Wednesday, November 26, 2014
Conrad turned one last weekend! We had a small birthday with mostly just family. He was the only baby there. Quite a difference from Arden's first birthday! Ha. I wanted to go all out for Conrad's as well, but with his birthday, my birthday, the holidays, work and some travel - things have been pretty crazy this month.


I actually had no idea what I was going to do until a week before. I found this adorable shirt on Etsy and things kind of went from there. Thank god for Amazon prime!

forks | cupcake wrappers | cups | pants | plates | berry cups 



We served Conrad's favorites: homemade mac & cheese (kept warm in a crockpot), homemade panko crusted chicken nuggets, mini quiches, small easy to eat veggies, berries, cheese & crackers, etc. 


I made a smash cake (can you tell?). It was all organic chocolate cake, whipped cream and raspberries. We also had burnt almond cupcakes (the Mr's fave) and vegan black bottom cupcakes (my fave) by Erin's Edible Indulgences in these cute tulip cupcake wrappers.



The runner was made using kraft paper and a star stamp.

The only family picture we managed to get, slightly blurry, but beggars can't be choosers ;) I'm just happy we actually got one!



Here's a video of us singing happy birthday and you can watch and see how much he enjoyed his birthday cake ;)



He was a big fan of his party balloons. He walked around carrying them everywhere!



A few of his favorite birthday gifts :)

Copy Cat Chic Room Redo | Wintry Den

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

Traveling home for Thanksgiving means it's time to feature one of my favorite Atlanta-based designers, Melanie Turner, and this cozy-as-can-be den she designed. I have long coveted a pair of chaises parked side by side, and I'm positive this image was the inspiration behind that dream. Can you imagine a better spot to catch up on magazines or watch your favorite guilty pleasure TV Shows? Add a toasty fire and I'd be practically glued here for the holiday season.

One of my favorite aspects of this space is the mix of textures--from fluffy sheepskin to natural sisal and rough brick to gleaming brass. Boxwood topiaries and pharmacy lamps add ultra-traditional style, while the abstract print and glossy tables swing the look back to transitional. Also have no fear: no sheep or turtles were harmed in the making of this room! 

I wish you all safe travels this week and hope you can enjoy some rest and relaxation surrounded by loved ones in a space as cozy as this.
