Decorative Holiday Accessories: Gift Guide!

The time is now! If you’re like me, you’re waiting until it’s officially December to start shopping for the Holidays. Whether it’s a small token of appreciation for your host, something for your artsy friend, or something for the mom who’s in her sixties and “down sizing” ;), I’ve corralled a few of my favorite decorative accessories for the home, Holiday style!

Slide1

  1. Wooden Quirk Hotel ornament by Morris + Norris – I recently discovered these RVA makers while perusing RVA Antiques. At just $10.00, it’s the perfect gift for your girl or boy about town.

2.Β Geometric Gold Trees – Love these! Glam without screaming Christmas…guys, I’m not a Grinch, but you know what I mean!

3. Majestic Tassels Ornament – OK, 2017 was the year of the tassel earrings and all things unicorn, and this adorable little ornament combines the two!

4.Β Modern Art Ornament –Β I know this is the third ornament on this gift guide, but the tree is always the star of the show, and Dana is the best!

5. Yuletide Embroidered Pillow – I love how this pillow is subtly Christmas-y and has that Suzani-boho feel that I love.

6. Fresh Winterberry and Pine Wreath – Wreath’s aren’t only for the front door – hang these pretties over a standing or hanging mirror or even inside, so you can smell that fresh pine all through out the house!

7. Eucalyptus Wood Gold Dipped Candle Holders – these are perfect for your outdoorsy, smoothie drinking, folk loving friend, and you can leave these up all year round!

8. ‘Red Pearl’ Amaryllis – Amaryllis’ makes me think of New Year’s because usually every year, my mom gets gifted amaryllis bulbs or one that has already bloomed. Such an elegant flower to have around during the holidays!

9. Gilded Cafe Mirror Tray – One can never have too many trays, especially during the holiday season! The sky’s the limit with what you can put on them, but I’d say, start with a cocktail πŸ˜‰

I hope this Gift Guide was helpful and got your wheels are spinning as to what to get that person who has everything. Cheers!

Happy Thanksgiving!

unnamed (26)

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It’s all about gathering with family and friends to celebrate and give thanks. What could be better than that?! 2017 has been the year of the gratitude journal, of which I have sat down first thing on in-consecutive mornings and listed off the many things and people I am grateful for. So on this Thanksgiving morning, here are just a few things I am thankful for:

  1. My family. In times of uncertainty, I am so thankful to have the love and support of my family.
  2. Good friends. My good friends are so important to me. Whether we’re laughing or crying or laughing until we cry, there is nothing better than connecting with friends who will lift you up.
  3. My positivity. Again, in times of uncertainty, I am grateful for my positive outlook and my ability to focus on the things I can do and the tools I have to achieve success, no matter how bumpy the road is getting there.

I hope everyone has a wonderful day celebrating with family and friends!

NOW GET COOKING!!

Love,

Ellen
