ONE I love this wall sconce for the simplicity of the design and the seeded glass.  I want to use a pair in my bathroom above the mirror! $105 each from Lamps.com. TWO someone outbid me on the faux trees I wanted from EBTH.com, so I’m looking into alternate options.  I’m drawn this french market olive tree from Wayfair, although at $199, I think I also might have a way to DIY one (stay tuned!). THREE I dip, you dip, we dip! Dipped mugs are cool without being kitschy! $28 each from Poketo. FOUR I think this set of brass candleholders are very classic and could be a mainstay on the dining table. $12-$20 from Crate and Barrel. FIVE I love pretty much everything in the new Mark & Graham catalog, but these monogrammed leather gloves are topping my wish list! I love the moody aqua color!! SIX A printed melamine tray is perfect for entertaining since it’s dishwasher safe! Indian Lace tray from Nicole Porter Designs for $36.

 

Happy **FIRST FALL** Friday guys!  It’s been a long and busy week over here and I’m so excited it’s the weekend!  I have a big launch party tonight for the Thread flagship store that is opening and it’s the first store to carry my line, Grandiflora Home + Decor!  Exciting, huh?

Aside from the party, I’m going to be sticking close to home working on a couple of big upcoming projects, but will try to take some time to soak in some of the warm fall weather and eat all the honey crisp apples I can stomach.

What is on your first fall weekend agenda?

ONE vintage Indian chopping bowls are new in the shop and I’ve loved styling mine up (because I had to keep one!) $148 from Grandiflora Home + Decor. TWO antique porcelain tea set looks precious for fall tea!  $48 from Milly’s Collection. THREE Nate Berkus’ new collection for Target has wonderful stylish neutrals, including this ‘peaks’ throw for $29. FOUR Deep indigo is a beautifully natural way to get navy into your decor scheme!  I love this batik-like pillow from Serena & Lily for $68. FIVE I love elephants, so these cute Jonathan Adler for JCPenny elephant bookends are right up my alley!  They’re subtle but stylish and are on sale for $38.

 

Happy Friday! It’s been a busy and wonderful week for us!  Today we’re taking our entire Grandiflora line to the first store that will be selling our designs here in Columbus!  It’s an exciting day and a big step for our business!

I have TWO wedding flower consultations tomorrow and a wedding on Sunday, so it will be a busy and fun weekend!!

Have a great one, guys!

ONE  The Citizenry is a new-to-me shop which has lovely neutral pieces from around the world.  This grey geo wool pillow is calling my name!  $95. TWO It’s funny that I like dressers so much, because we don’t even have one in our house. I think this metal rimmed chest from World Market would make a great addition to a family room or dining room for additional storage, and I love that little shelf on the bottom!  $549. THREE bees please!  the cutest bee print dopp kit is just $24(ish) from Jenna Rose Handmade. FOUR I hate when super specific seasonal decor is expensive, so these pretty ‘dia de los muertos’ plates from Crate and Barrel had me sold at their $4 price tag. FIVE another one from the Citizenry!  I love this simple black and white wool rug made by artisans in Argentina!  It’s a bit pricey at $475 for a 3 x 5, but looks like it would be a wonderful quality piece to add style for years to come! SIX if anyone is as obsessed with the fall or with Harry Potter as I am, you’re gonna love a little butter beer!  This recipe calls for Rum extract, which I will most definitely sub out for actual Rum. Wouldn’t this be so fun for a Harry Potter movie night?

Fall is totally in the air and I am ushering it in with open arms!  We are in Chicago this weekend where it is forecasted to be around 60 the whole time – perfect in my mind.  I can’t wait to really amp up the fall posts and get you all ready for the season of harvests, apples, pumpkins, leaves, and spice!

This week we have a $250 GIVEAWAY going on!  Enter at the bottom of yesterday’s post!

 

Have a fabulous September weekend, guys!

ONE talk about obsessed.  I saw these raised polka dot towels in my local West Elm and although they were out, I immediately ordered online.  They’re $24 each (which is a bit pricey for towels) so I bought two and will use them as the display/hand drying towels in my bathroom. TWO holy sconce! The geo sconces are simple, gorgeous, and on sale from Wisteria!  $174 for the set of four. THREE an antique dough bowl which is (surprise!) an upcoming Grandiflora item! Get emails with our new items by signing up here! FOUR I don’t know what I love more, the color or the scent of this ‘Woods’ scented candle from Sydney Hale, $30. FIVE it’s black and white which automatically draws my attention, but the buffalo check on this plaid blanket is totally on trend for fall and would be cute throughout the entire holiday season.  It’s 100% wool, so it’s worth it’s $120 price tag. SIX put a ring on it… Moose head ring holder is a darling decor object for fall and would also be a wonderful holiday gift (let’s get ahead this year!).  It’s just $8 from Z Gallerie.

 

It was a short week, but it sure didn’t feel like it to me!  I did the flowers for a wedding this past weekend which is always a lot of work, but this one was amazing!  I made 30 feet of eucalyptus garland for the altar area and for down the center of the head table!  I’ll be sharing more photos soon, so stay tuned for those!

This weekend, I will be headed to an Ohio State football game tomorrow (I’m excited!) and will be cleaning up around the house a bit. A weekend in LA followed by a weekend doing wedding flowers means my house is a wreck.

What is on your agenda?

ONE our Imogene Mirror is made of white washed wood and a calm neutral accent with loads of style for $188.  TWO the Margot Globe Lantern is fabulous with both a candle inside or some flowers.  We’re gonna love using it this fall to fill with acorns and pinecones! $48 THREE our Rosey Preserved Boxwood topiaries are real, preserved greenery and will look gorgeous from fall into winter.  the small is $44 and medium is $48.  FOUR Let’s Have Another!! This simple lucite tray has a gold glitter message urging friends to, well, have another! $34.  FIVE this simple white washed stool or side table comes dipped in gorgeous silver leaf to give it an extra does of cool for $220.  SIX my absolute favorite piece from the new collection is our Claudia Silver Weave bench.  It’s perfect for an entryway, the foot of the bed, or even as a coffee table.  The price is just right at $368.

 

We keep getting closer and closer to the full launch of our Grandiflora Fall 2014 Collection with each passing day!  Today, I wanted to share with you guys a few of the things I’m really excited about!  Not only will we keep piling on more new peeks as we get closer to the launch (follow on insta @shopgrandiflora for other updates) but we’ll also continue to carry some of what I consider to be our ‘Signature Collection’ from last holiday.
