Dinner in a Small Town

One Friday after work, we jumped in the car and headed about an hour down the road to the small town of Ridge Spring, SC to eat dinner at Juniper, where a friends friend was the musical entertainment.


Adorable back room. How cute would this be for a big dinner party to have to whole back room?  

Drinks were served in mason jars.  Yummy biscuits with homemade peach butter to start. Mediterranean Pasta Salad as a pre-dinner snack from the chef.Salad was up next.
  Some opted for soup.

A sampling of entree’s from the table

  

We asked for dessert but only if the bananas foster could be made in our presence.

Others opted for brownie sundaes!   

Love these girls!

If you ever want an adventure, road trip down to Ridge Spring and enjoy a great meal with great service. Thanks for a great night Juniper!

Rent the Runway

Back in October I rented this dress from Rent the Runway for a work event that ended up getting cancelled due to the flood. So I decided that have a photo shoot so the dress wasn’t a complete waste. I did get cash back through Ebates when renting the dress. It also happened to be around the time of my birthday, so it became a birthday photo shoot as well 🙂

Armoires

I found a fun website the other day, Chairish with beautiful armoires and decided it would be fun to style the top of the armoire. While looking through all of the armoires on their website, it was so hard to choose my favorite. They are all fabulous and make me want to redecorate my house!

I LOVE white furniture. When I moved into my house and my mom offered to buy me new bedroom furniture, all I knew is that I wanted it to be white.

I absolutely love that you can see inside this. Even though this would be used for storage, anything that you don’t want seen can go in the drawer at the bottom. It’s perfect. I am all about decorating. As I am sitting in my bed writing this, I looked around my room and see that the tops of none of my furniture is bare.

The first thing I would add to the top of this would be a live plant, something that maybe hung down a little bit.

Secondly, I would add a painting with a pop of color. Since it is white, I would want to add some color into the room. Possibly something by Megan Carn or Teil Duncan.

Teil

I’m a simple girl, so would just start with those 2 items, maybe add a big candle or mason jars.

Which armoire would you choose and how would you decorate it?

An InLinkz Link-up

So as I went to write this a few weeks ago, my phone rang. My dad was calling to see if I had seen the news on Twitter. I said no. He said that Spurrier was retiring. So then my farewell post to Steve had to be written first.

When you get invited to a tailgate, if they are providing everything for you, it is nice to give a gift to thank them for inviting you. I’ve round up a list of some fun and creative gifts for your tailgate host.

 These cute trays from Kaileys Monogram are a great tailgate addition or home decorate for a big fan.

Wine. These Ray Tanner bottles of wine were fun when they were released after Back to Back National Championships. Check to see if there is wine for your team that you can bring pop open during a tailgate.

Everyone loves a great coffee table book. I know they are currently working on the 2nd Edition on this book! Gridiron Belles goes over tailgating, traditions and information of each SEC school and football knowledge.

Everyone always needs another tote or basket to carry more tailgating items in. Kailey’s Monogram has so many colors and styles to choose from. Go check out their Etsy shop to see!

You know that you are going to snap a great picture during the tailgate, so give your host a frame to put it in so they can think about tailgating all week long, instead of just on Saturdays 🙂 And of course you will need something for yourself 🙂

Happy Tailgating Ladies!
