In our house, summer is best spent outside. Partially because of the gorgeous weather, and partially because in our century-old house, there is no a/c and most of the time, it’s cooler outside in the shade of our wooded backyard. Regardless of my reasons, I think we can all agree that outdoor parties are part of what makes summer summer.
You guys have seen that I host sit-down dinner parties pretty often, but the majority of the parties we have start small. One friend stops by after work, then another sees some cars in the driveway and stops by, then before you know it, we’ve got anywhere from six to fourteen people pouring drinks, the music is pumping and the grill is firing up something we’ve pulled out of our fridge.
If we made a list of things I loved, we all know neutrals would be on one hand and on the others… tassels. Goodness, I love tassels. I have scarves, kimonos, necklaces, and napkins all with tassels.
I picked up this textured jute rug at World Market last week just because it was beautiful and only $24. I knew right when I saw it that I ‘d be fastening tassels to its edges and calling it mine. I feel like I’ve seen several other designs at super high prices, yet this one cost just under $30. That is a win.
I think we all know that sometimes the prettiest things are those that we create, and especially when they’re this inexpensive. Are you ready for it?
For a long time, I’ve meant to write this post. Life kind of took off and I stashed it to the back of the pile thinking it was past the point of resurrection. When I redesigned this blog in January, I gave it the tagline, “The New Traditional”. I had meant to clarify the choice, but kind of figured that people understood what it meant and I moved on. Then within the last few weeks, the reasons for not only the tagline, but the reasons why I write the blog as a whole came back around and hit at full force.
Happy Friday, Friends! I hope you've got a wonderful long weekend planned! Is there anything exciting on your agenda? We're planning on doing a lot
