We've all been there. One week before Christmas and there's still shopping to be done! Well, we are here to help you complete the challenge and get all of those presents wrapped up before game time! These gift ideas are perfect for anyone on your list who has a new home, who never purchases pretty things for themselves, or who is just an interior design enthusiast!


If you live local to the Nashville area...


The Golden Slipper:

Shop local and swing by this adorable little store in Germantown. You'll find gifts for everyone and your last minute Christmas dinner necessities. Their candles are poured in house and everything is special and unique. The matchstick holder below was a gift I received this year and it has been my favorite! You can also order online and schedule for pick-up to make things quick and easy.




Onyx + Alabaster:

Located in Downtown Franklin, this amazing interior design firm doubles as an interiors market, where you can pick up the perfect finds for someone on your list. The market is so beautifully curated, so you can be certain that anything you choose will be well loved by the homebody in your life.


OAK Nashville:

This whimsical shop is located in Nashville. They define themselves as a curated collection of unique finds to help you re-imagine your home. You won't have to worry about purchasing the same gift as someone else if you shop here.




If you're hitting the mall...


Pottery Barn

They have tons of great gift options for the cocktail maker in your life, the newlyweds, the decorators, the sleep-in-laters... seriously there is something for everyone. I love the idea of gifting photo frames. Fill them with photos you print quickly from home or at Walgreens- or leave it for their favorite memories. They also have these stunning St. Jude's bell shaped candles- when you purchase 25% of proceeds is donated to St. Jude's Hospital.


Crate & Barrel

Crate & Barrel is my go to for kitchen and bar-ware. They have the best quality items for a reasonable price- and they are always stylish and fun. If you need a host or hostess gift- this is the spot to go.





If you're shopping online...


Target

Come on.... you knew there would be a list from Target. I can't tell you how many times this year we've said "Target is going to put everyone out of business." Now, don't get me wrong, we don't want that to happen- and that's why it's important to support those local shops as well... but, sometimes you just have to make a stop at target. Stop by your local store or order online by Sunday to receive on/by Christmas Eve.


Amazon

Here again... Amazon is another guilty pleasure. We are a small business and we love supporting other small businesses. But, we are all human and sometimes we wait until the last minute and we have to turn to Amazon to save the day. Here are some of our favorite Amazon home decor finds. Just click the photos below to follow the link!

Merry Christmas!




If you read the last post, then you know how much I love laying around the day after Thanksgiving. Black Friday shopping has never been my thing (except when I worked in the jewelry industry, but that's a story for another time).


That doesn't mean I don't love new things or a good sale. Everyone does, right? But, if you're like me and you hate waiting in lines, maneuvering carts, looking over people's shoulders, people looking over your shoulder, and all of the general Black Friday madness... then you also know that TODAY... Cyber Monday is our jam.


So, to get you a jump start on the day- we wanted to share some of our favorite Cyber Monday deals for your home. Just click on the images for links!

This is just the tip of the iceberg! Don't sleep on Pottery Barn, Williams Sonoma, Rejuvenation, and even Wayfair. If you're on a budget, we highly recommend saving a little on your smaller pieces like side tables so you can lend that money towards things that really make a difference- like your lighting or seating.


Let us know what deals you find today! We're off to find deals on actual jewelry... and boots, sweaters, holiday dresses.... and clearly we'll need to find more hangers while we're at it.

This year looks a little bit different for us all. 2020 has had more than it's fair share of hiccups, hardships, and heartache. In the midst of this, I think we've all learned to slow down a bit and focus on the things that bring us joy. Which is why Christmas may have come a little early for some of us. 2020 needs as much joy as it can get, so if Holiday decorations make you happy... put those trees up!



What makes me happy? Being able to stay in a food coma on Black Friday and spend time with my family. Most years, you'd find me struggling out of bed the day after Thanksgiving and loading my car with bins of ornaments, heading off to squeeze in as many holiday clients as we could! This year, we decided to do things a little differently and decorated for 5 of our long-term clients... the week before Thanksgiving.

Unfortunately, that meant we weren't able to take on as many holiday projects as usual. So, we brainstormed a way to spread the joy. We're sharing some of our favorite trees and where to find the goods to bring our ideas to your home.

If you're dreaming of a "White Christmas" and you're ready to "Let it Snow."

Large beaded snowflake ornaments, extra & unique string lights, neutral personalized stockings for the family, pre-lit flocked garland, natural colored peacock feathers, and a faux fur tree skirt make up this snowy scene!


If you're ready to "Deck the Halls" for a "Holly Jolly Christmas."

This client had two Christmas trees in her home and wanted to do a little something different in the family room, but still wanted it to be festive! We opted for a plain garland, attached to the mantle and built in cabinets using command hooks. Add a few (or a hundred) shatterproof ornaments to the garland for a truly magical focal point.


Your kids will definitely want to live in this "Marshmellow World."

This was our absolute favorite tree this year. This little project started when the client called and said "let's put a little mini tree in the kid's play room!" Lots of candy ornaments, pink sparkly mesh, colorful pom pom garland, and a 7.5" tall flocked tree with color changing rainbow lights later.... we created every little girl's Christmas dream.



Leave a comment and tell us which tree is your favorite!


Happy Holidays!
