Styling with Mirrors

Now that the holidays have come to a close, it is a wonderful time to “fluff and puff” areas of your home.   Once all the decorations are put away, it feels like a clean slate to change things up! For this post, I am sharing a great way to create drama and great styling with mirrors and do it inexpensively.  You could create this look over any buffet, sideboard, console, fireplace, over a bed, in a stairwell or other areas in your home that needs a lift or an update.

Styling with Mirrors

Typically, dining areas are smaller than other living areas in your home. Using mirrors are a great vessel for opening up these smaller areas. In my case, my black buffet is 82″ long, so I needed and wanted a huge mirror for maximum impact.  This is when the light bulb went off! Time to break the rules…

Top 7 Posts of 2017!

Starting this blog only a couple of months ago, it seems crazy to be able to talk about “top posts”.  However, I have been so pleased with the responses and support so far making this journey so rewarding!  These last few months have been filled with so many opportunities for entertaining and decorating for the “season” and I have loved sharing what has been going on around here.  Now, that we are in a new year, I will be switching gears a bit to take on more home decor topics so stay tuned!

Gold and Silver Table Setting – New Year’s Eve or Christmas

New Year’s Eve is such a festive time of the year!  We like to stay in on New Year’s Eve to avoid some of the craziness of the night.  Typically, we like to host neighbors so it is easy for everyone to get home safely.  It was so much fun putting this gold and silver table setting together for this special occasion.  Actually, once I finished up taking the photos I realized that the centerpiece and place settings would also be suitable for a Christmas celebration or even a birthday dinner!

Silver and White New Year’s Eve Table Setting

Beginning a new year is most certainly a great reason to celebrate! We like to stay in on New Year’s Eve as it can be a crazy night for a lot of folks. Typically, we host a small dinner party with neighbors. This way, it is easy and safe for our guests to walk home after an evening of food and libations!

During our recent trip home to Dallas for Thanksgiving, my mom wanted to pre-plan her table for their own New Year’s Eve dinner party.  My parents entertain even more than we do and have inspired my desire to host guests often.  They have been very excited about the premier of my blog so my mother was especially eager to have some fun designing her table setting for New Year’s Eve.  It has been so nice to have their support.

As I sit here writing, the snow is falling and it now appears that we will have a white Christmas.  Being born and raised in Texas, having any amount of snow on the ground on Christmas Day is truly special!!  Because of the snow, it is especially “beginning to look a lot like Christmas” around here!
