Styling Two Spaces and Celebrating Halloween with At Home

This is a sponsored post by At Home

Halloween decor can have so many different looks, from spooky to chic to traditional and modern! Using decor from At Home, we styled two main areas of our house, a spooky but fun Halloween front porch and a chic tablescape.

Creating Halloween front porch curb appeal doesn't have be a daunting task! We will share a few tricks with you to make it easier.


Head to your local At Home store, where they provide a full solution for your home, with a large selection of specialty products for Halloween. Here is the list of items we picked up, the life size poseable skeleton, a few black crows, bag of bones, spider fence, giant black spider, striped spider, smooth chain, chain with shackles and a few colorful pumpkins





We started with a wooden chair, we painted to match our decor. Draped a creepy cloth over the chair and sat the life size skeleton down and posed it waving at friends and family. 



Add a spider and a few black crows to the skeleton's body, for a fun flair. 


Take the two chains and wrap them around the chair and the skeleton's feet. 



Place the bag of bones in a black lantern or vase for the full creepy effect. 


Next add the spider fence around your display and you can call it quits. But if you'd like to add more, like we did, simply add the fun colored pumpkins and the giant spider to the stairs, if you have them. 





Our chic and modern tablescape is one you will want to take note of, especially because of the everyday low prices At Home has, it allows you to decorate on a budget.




You will notice we used some of the same decor elements you saw on the front porch. We decided not to go with the traditional orange and black, but instead with the turquoise pops of color. It adds a little mystery and chicness. 


Aren't the place settings fabulous? We found these metal spider wall plaques in the Halloween section and just could not pass them up! We knew they would be perfect on the table and they are the perfect size. 



The black crows, mini skeleton heads, spiders and colorful pumpkins make this table perfect for your Halloween soiree. 




Have fun with your decor, like we did when we posed the life size skeleton drinking from his wine glass or this one above holding a mini pumpkin! Halloween decor is all in how you style it. It can be fun, creepy, traditional or modern. Whatever you do, make it your own and have fun!

Tailgating with Sophistiplate

This is a sponsored post by Sophistiplate.
It's football season and you know what that means.......TAILGATING! If you follow us on any of our social media channels, then you know we LOVE sports and tailgating! Because they go hand in hand right?! Right!! We've partnered again with Sophistiplate to style two college tailgate tablescapes! We were asked to style one for Duke University and one for Ole Miss! We are thrilled how they turned out!

DUKE UNIVERSITY:







It was so much fun to create and style these tables using props we had on hand and a few new items from Sophistiplate and Hester & Cook! Don't you just love the ruffle plates? They add so much style to any party! If you remember, I partnered with Sophistiplate here. How about those football place mats? Have you ever shopped Hester & Cook? They have beautiful home, gift and paper products. 

OLE MISS:








Mixing and matching the plates is always a fun idea! Adding a Hester & Cook football runner down your tailgate party table is just plain fabulous! Incorporating elements such as referee bottle coverswhistles; megaphones; red and yellow flags which represent penalty and under review flags; glasses and utensils in the colors of your team help pull the party table together. 

We hope we have inspired you to style your own tailgating tablescape!

Tropical Flamingo Fest


Let's be honest, my kids birthday parties are just as much for me as they are for them! They give me the perfect excuse to buy fun props and items I have been eyeing for a long time, such as this letter board! If the parties were truly just for my kids, we could just fill a room with their friends, pizza, soda, bottled water, lots of candy and electronic devices! 

BUT...birthday parties to me are like a right of passage for us moms! Celebrating another year with our great survival skills!! 

All kidding aside, my kids love to pick out their own theme, then I go for it! Taking ownership and responsibility seriously, is the way I roll. Designing and styling a Tropical Flamingo Fest so perfect for any age but totally enjoyed by my 11 year old daughter and her friends, was so much fun!  

This year she helped me with so many of the decorations, from spray painting the flamingos to blowing up the balloons to styling the table {I think I have a creative stylist on my hands}! 






































I start the party planning process once the theme is decided upon, then I create a vision board to help me get the creative juices flowing. We wanted a very bright and cheerful color palette which we had not seen before for a flamingo party. What color is better than yellow to make everything more cheerful? The broad yellow striped fabric was perfect and matched the invitation to a T! Next I brought in the greens and pinks to match the tropical flamingo feel. 

Designing the invitation was the easy part, now to match and color coordinate. A HUGE thank you to all the brands who helped us take this party from ordinary to extraordinary!
