There are a few reasons why I decided on artificial flowers for my outdoor flower pots at The House on High Street. I don’t exactly have a green thumb and watering plants is not on my priority list. Surprisingly, silk flowers can be a lot less expensive. And, not just in the long run! (They can last a few years as opposed to one season.) Last but not least, it took me only five minutes to put these pots together!
As you know, we recently celebrated Baby Berry’s first birthday at The House on High Street. It was such a blessing to host her Bio Family and witness all the love she has in her life! There were about 20 adults and my three nephews (the only children) in attendance. Even though it was a lot of work, I loved doing it! Not to mention, hosting a party at home is not as stressful as some may think. It’s less expensive and you have more control over the theme and ambiance.
A few weeks ago, I took Baby Blue to New York, to visit my friend Katie. I was Katie’s nanny throughout my college years. She and I have remained very close throughout the years. We try to visit one another, at least once a year. During my last visit, Katie introduced me to her Nespresso machine.
I have not been the same ever since.
So, you’re hosting Thanksgiving, this year? Congratulations! Or, shall we say, Good Luck? Last year was our first Thanksgiving at The House on High Street. I remember feeling excited and nervous. Thankfully, it was a success. I think the best advice I can give you is to plan ahead and pace yourself. I actually created my own Thanksgiving Countdown! So, here are some tips for you in preparing for one of the greatest holidays, ever. Have fun!
Everybody likes a good DIY Makeover story, right? Well, here you go…
I’m not sure why, but every time I turn around, my Mother-in-Law is dropping something off to my house. Evidently, Scott was a collector and cluttered up her house for twenty-some years. I think this is pay back time because almost every time she visits, we seem to collect more of his old stuff and some of hers, too.
I don’t know about you, but on one hand, it seems like yesterday we were celebrating our First Thanksgiving at The House on High Street. It was a success, and Scott and I had a lot of fun doing it. (I’m considering doing another Facebook LIVE series throughout the holiday season, so you’ll have to keep watch for that on Facebook.) As much as Pinterest, sometimes, overwhelms me- I remember finding some pretty extraordinary ideas on there. Such as these personalized place settings, that I made last year.
