Decorating for Valentine’s Day

Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day? It’s okay, I do too. However, decorating for Valentine’s Day unlike Christmas or even Halloween, is more subtle. I keep it simple and don’t overdo it.

Today I’ve teamed up with the super creative folks at Minted to create a festive, yet fresh tablescape for cupid’s favorite holiday. As you’ll see – it’s not all about hearts & arrows – I’ve mixed in some none traditional prints such as the partridge table runner and modern stitch napkins to the mix – these patterns could be used year around which is a win-win. I also included red roses for a traditional touch and a double fudge chocolate cake for something sweet – a Valentine must! The bay window was the perfect place for garland & bunting to deliver a special “love you” message to family and friends.

Now… can we just talk about how darn cute the Minted classroom Valentines for kids are?

My kids selected “You’re a llama fun!” and “I like the way you roll” Valentines for their friends. So cute and I love that they are personalized. Here are a few more Valentine favorites for the kiddos from Minted:

“I love you to the moon and back”. It’s a saying that’s used a lot in my house and so when I spot moons in home decor, it always makes me smile. I particularly have been drawn to the moon phase photographs at Restoration Hardware. They would look amazing in just about any space!

To celebrate my love for the moon in all it’s phases (and recent lunar eclipse), I’ve rounded up a few favorites!

It’s true. Because the holiday season can be so hectic, I’ve already started to shop for family and friends. In fact some gifts are already wrapped! To avoid the stress that holiday shopping can bring, it’s always a good idea to get a head start.

Last week I kicked off the holiday gift guides for 2014 with a focus on hostess gifts. Today, I’ve hand-picked items I adore and that would perfect for women of all ages. From a coveted Rebecca Minkoff bag to cozy Sorel winter boots – there’s a variety of fun gift ideas ranging in price. Perhaps some of these items will end up on your own holiday wish-list too!

Getting Organized :: Stylish Desk Accessories

As we look forward to 2014, many of us are setting new year’s goals and resolutions. High on most lists is getting organized (no surprise here I’m sure!). For me I struggle with desk organization and aim to keep it more tidy this coming year. The right desk accessories are key to creating an efficient work-space, yet so many are ho-hum and aren’t pretty. That’s why I’m thrilled about teaming up with See Jane Work at Office Depot to help me create a beautiful, streamlined desk that reflects my personal style. Their collection combines fresh style and smart organization – can’t get better than that! See Jane Work’s chic office accessories come in fresh patterns and color palettes perfect for mixing and matching. I selected items in hues of blue, pink and white and love how it coordinates with the items I already owned.

Organizing Tip: Write down your list of to dos and cross them off as they are completed – prioritize them for even more efficiency! Here I’m using See Jane Work’s “To Do” sticky notepad!

See Jane Work’s desktop letter sorter in a blue and white herringbone pattern (above) is so chic and I love how it keeps my stationary close at hand. Awe, doesn’t it feel good to be organized?

Happy new year and happy organizing,

Cristin
