Friday Faves 11.7

friday faves 11.7

ONE I’ve heard great things about Martha’s new One Pot Cookbook!  I might treat myself to it this weekend since it’s just $16 on Amazon! TWO these gilded stemless wine glasses from World Market would be perfect for entertaining from Thanksgiving straight through until Christmas and at just $19 for a set of four, they’d make a great gift too.  THREE If you want a great live wreath that will bridge the holidays, try one made of Bay laurel.  It smells awesome, but is totally appropriate for before Christmas. This one from McFadden Farms is just $34 which is a steal for a live wreath.  FOUR isn’t this rust colored arrow rug gorgeous?  Would you ever believe it was just $149 from Urban outfitters?  I might have to snag it! FIVE I’m still on the lookout for pretty B&W patterned pillows for my bedroom makeover.  These from Chanee Vijay Textiles are printed on greige hemp which makes them look more rustic and natural than start black and white can be. SIX if you’re looking for a good beverage bucket for entertaining this year, look no further than this planter from Ikea.  It’s just $19, which is such a deal.


Happy Friday guys!  Have you ever actually had a week where Friday gets here too soon and you’re left with a long to-do list still?  I know its a little crazy, but I kind of wish I had just one more weekday to get some things done which would allow me to enjoy my weekend a little more.

This weekend, I have friends coming in from out of town and we’re going to do all of my favorite columbus things and eat at my favorite columbus restaurants.  We’re starting this morning with a trip to Pistacia Vera, doing a little Short North Shopping during the day, eating tonight at 3rd & Hollywood.  Tomorrow we’re heading out east to Wyandotte Winery then doing dinner at Basi Italia.  Of course there’ll be a trip to Jeni’s thrown in there as well.  Any suggestions to show my guests?

Have a happy November weekend, all!

ONE the prettiest little plates by Nate Berkus for Target will go with anyone’s style – $20 for a set of 4. TWO coming soon to the shop!  Our Grandiflora Holiday update includes a cake plate in beautiful white marble (a perfect complement to our Britta Marble Turntable which is a best-seller this season!) The cake stand will be $48. THREE I found the classic lines of this dark slate sofa to be absolutely perfect from a design perspective, and then I saw the $599 price tag and about fell over!  It’s from Ikea and is part of their new Stocksund line.  FOUR who doesn’t love cozy plaid blankets for fall?  100% wool is always a great investment and will last forever.  $148 from Terrain.  FIVE for the hip entertainer in your life, this copper pitcher is gorgeous and a good size!  It’s one of those pieces that looks as good sitting out as it does in use.  $88 from Terrain.  SIX I know I don’t usually post shoes, but I thought this whole line of handmade flats from Spain were too good not to share. The navy blue scalloped are my fave right now, but check out the whole collection from Ele Handmade.


Happy Halloween!! It’s one of my favorite days of the year and I hope you’re enjoying the crisp fall-ness of it all! Today, I’m getting our Grandiflora holiday collection finalized and it’s a beautiful complement to the items in our fall line. I’m excited to reveal the new goodies! Tomorrow we are heading to a Halloween party where I am planning to be Maria Von Trapp.  I need to find a guitar case today to complete my outfit!

Next week I have some wonderful things in store for you!  An AMAZING dessert recipe for your November festivities, the new headboard DIY, and details for our upcoming Friendsgiving celebration! Can’t wait to see you back here on Monday!

Have a great weekend!

ONE light lavender is one of my favorite colors for this winter.  A little card case is the perfect place to get a trendy color into your everyday (check out their hair calf style too!) $20 from Gift Shop Brooklyn. TWO for my new bedding scheme, these herringbone patterned sheets from Crane & Canopy are on my list! $169 for King. THREE the smoky, undefined line of this ‘dipped’ pillow makes it so modern! $159 by Rebecca Atwood. FOUR if only I didn’t have a glass door!  This hexagon door knocker is perfection! Someone needs to get it so that I can live vicariously through you! $85 in Oil Rubbed Bronze. FIVE what a statement piece! The price of this glazed terra cotta salad bowl is a bit steep, but it would make a wonderful gift for that hostess to has everything. $225 from Huzza. SIX I just bought four of these grey linen storage boxes to stow away some summer clothes, let the winter prep begin! $16 from Ikea.


Happy Friday, guys! I am getting into full wedding flower mode over here and am spending the majority of the morning cutting stems, getting all of the blooms into water, and cleaning vases.  After flowers are processed and vases are clean, the arranging will begin!  Follow along on insta for some photos of the process!

After the flowers are delivered tomorrow, I’m going to lay low and spend some much needed time with Matty. Sunday I think I’m going to sit in my office and organize the next two months my life – menus for parties, decor to make, and gifts to buy (christmas is just two months away!).

What’s on your weekend agenda?

ONE a little marble box is subtle, but so stylish! Its from a Danish shop called Stilleben and is about 58 usd. TWO a geo copper pendant is the perfect jolt of cool for any style of space and is £189 from Ruby Roost. THREE this scandinavian cross cushion cover is priced right at just $17 from Emily Beauty. FOUR light cranberry color on these dipped stoneware mugs is just right for the fall transition! $36.40 from Dahlhaus. FIVE what a piece!  The striking texture of this woven bench from Serena and Lily is a statement piece for the more minimal at heart (me). $950.


Greetings from Sunny Islamorada!  I’m busy busy doing flowers for a gorgeous wedding and can’t be happier.  I’ve got my island rhythms playing and the windows open.  We’re arranging up a storm.

This weekend after the flowers are delivered, I’m going to relax.  I know I say this every weekend, but every weekend it doesn’t happen so it moves back onto the to-do list!  I just got this new bookand I’m excited to dig in.  Has anybody read anything by Nesbo?

What’s on the docket for your weekend?

ONE a little french humor iPhone case from Cat Coquillette on Society Six is just what I need! $35. TWO wood grain glazed dinner plates from Anthro are beautiful and so so perfect for fall entertaining! Unfortunately, they’re sold out online, so snoop into your local store! THREE another sconce!  This one is such a pretty mix of reclaimed and classic lines. $123 (with free shipping!) from Arcadian Home. FOUR So many pretty fall invitations on Paperless post!  I’m picking out my ‘friends giving’ invites as we speak. FIVE glazed pottery is such a beautiful thing to collect.  These mugs are $28 each from Recreation Center. SIX knotted Bardia Rug from Anthro is a very textural way to add dimension to a neutral home! $98 for the 2 x 3.


I’m pretty happy it’s Friday!  Last weekend was a total whirlwind in Williamsburg and for the next two weeks I’ll be hunkering down and working on florals for a few weddings (one of which is in Florida) so it will be very busy.  This weekend is the calm before the storm, so to speak, so I’m going to stick around home as much as possible and prepare!

What is on your weekend agenda?


P.S.  I designed a full outdoor dinner party for The Home Depot and it’s LIVE TODAY!  Check it out here!
