Living Room Update- New Table



Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! We were at the beach with family this weekend and it was a such a nice getaway!

When we got home yesterday, our neighbors were loading up their truck with furniture they were going to donate. They asked if we wanted a round table....so I ran over to see it and said YES. I have been on the hunt for a round table to use in our living room for a few weeks now. Everything was either too expensive or too short for our needs. I wanted to spot in the living room for working a puzzle, writing a letter, or paying the bills. My hope was to provide extra seating as well for meals or for chitchat.



If you want to see more of this space before I moved things around last night, check out this post.


The new table is sitting in the back corner of the room with two benches under it. I stole them from the other end of the living room. The lamp behind it was in the bonus room but wasn't being used much. The globe is a recent flea market find for only $5 (because it has no stand- it's in a bowl until I come up with a better solution)



I am considering painting the top of the table. It's pretty scratched up currently. I will update if I do!


With the addition of the table, the Victrola that used to sit here needed a new home. It moved to the other end of the living room where my benches used to sit.


As always, I love changing things up! I am loving the addition to the room and I can't wait to put it to use!

4th of July Party

My mom throws THE BEST parties ever. She is so creative and I love her style. I really do want to BE her in all the ways possible, but especially in her hosting capabilities. 

This past weekend we were visiting my parents for the 4th and they threw a party for their friends. I snapped some pics for future party inspiration and I wanted to share those here! Enjoy!


She set up her bar on their screened-in porch, easily my favorite place in the house.




The mantle on the porch was also festive





We set up for the food outside but sadly it rained and we had to move it all in. 
I did manage to snap some pics before the rain came. 




Every little detail is so cute and festive!



There's my cute dad, grilling the food!


Back to the porch..



Festive appetizers...



I loved the way she set up and decorated! 

Here are some pics of my people...
My boys!

My dad, Noah, and me!

I hope you all had a great holiday weekend!

Breezy Playroom


We are really getting hit with heat this summer and we aren't even 2 weeks in. It is torture with the humid, sticky air here in NC. 

Lucky for me, my awesome hubby put in two fans in the bonus room in the Spring. It was a surprise for me! He installed them by himself while I was out of town. I was super impressed!


Now there is the perfect breeze up there!


Thanks Gabe! I love our little fans!
