NY International Gift Fair

This past weekend, we were both in New York City for the NY International Gift Fair. This was our first time to the NYIGF. Last year, we went to the Atlanta Gift Show. These shows are trade shows for retailers who are in design, decor and gifts. It is basically floor, upon floor, building upon building, of products for your home. The first showroom we visited was the Global Designs showroom. Now, some vendors are protective of their products and ask that no pictures be taken, but many were more than willing to let us snap a few … [Read more...]

shhhhh…BlogLove secret…

For a few years, we have hosted BlogLove Networking Events in Minneapolis and Baltimore. If you've never heard of or attended a BlogLove Event, we wanted to show you what they're all about. Each event is unique! When we set out to create events, we knew we wanted our guests to walk away with a few things. One, to be inspired! Two, to experience something new and unique. Three, to connect with brands and last, to make great new friends! Here's a quick glimpse at some of our past events. Click the pictures to read more on … [Read more...]

Winter Whiteout Cupcakes for a Wedding

The table was set. The candles lit.  But what to serve for a simple, wedding in my home? I wanted to honor the bride's request to "not make it a big deal". But, if my home was decorated with winter whites, what would be so wrong with adding a little dessert treat that wore the same color? I'm a chocolate lover and was never a big fan of white cake until I made Whiteout Cake from Baked's cookbook Baked: New Frontiers in Baking. There is nothing boring or nondescript about this cake! I made the recipe for the cake but decided … [Read more...]

Our Friendship Story ~ Beads

I remember as we left the nursery after the first time we met Devon and Kristin that the nursery care giver had said, "I never saw two babies that age actually seem to interact with each other." We figured if our small babies got along so well in the nursery, their parents probably might get along too.  And, so we hoped for the best.  We enjoyed their son's first birthday and then our son's. One afternoon I sat, round and pregnant folding laundry on my sofa.  To my surprise there was a midday knock at the door.   I could see … [Read more...]

Winter Tablescaping for an Intimate Wedding

We had a fun start to the New Year! At the last minute we were asked to host an intimate wedding for good friends of ours. I was thrilled! The bride really wanted the event to be low key and not "weddingy" at all. (They are planning on a large celebration in the spring when the weather gets warmer.) I totally get that, but you know me, I wasn't going to pull out paper plates and paper napkins...I mean, it was a wedding after all! So, I decided to "decorate for the winter" in my home. Since my dining room was going to be the best … [Read more...]
