FALL INSPIRED TABLETOP

i definitely get my love for tabletop decor from my momma. she is literally obsessed with themed tables, so i always grew up watching her work her magic. this season, we were asked to create a fall-themed holiday tabletop incorporating some of our favorite target items. i found so many items that i loved from the line and we went to town….

i kept imagining greenery floating over the table in this all white space and luckily kristen and amy from  made it happen for me with some string from the ceiling. we bought a bunch of linen for the tables to keep it very simple and elegant (tip: you can buy linen at your local fabric store for under $5/yard), added the bentwood chairs and let the table decor stand out.

i was able to stop by my friend video shoot (see the final one !) set for target a few weeks before i started on my table ideas. first of all, i love seeing my powerhouse lady friends in action! there was like a 75 person crew there, and she rocked it. it’s also fun to see them recreate these rooms from scratch and how real they look once you are in them. it’s all pretty fascinating. so i hung out there for a while, got inspiration from their styled tables and picked out a few of my favorites to use in our shoot.

i think my favorite product from the target collection are those i love the varying heights to create the , which i find a little more interesting than just one larger arrangement.

the perfect cheese plate has a lot of variety and textures. colorful fruits, nuts, and olives in small containers to keep things separated. salami, pre-made crostinis, and lots of cheese options. we always have fun putting together new variations! we used this agate tray, which blended perfectly with our fall colors.

shop this scene: above:  white hurricane and serving tray. below:  wood center piece tray rose gold flatware drinking glasses, and  cake stand. 

try a simple white cake with greenery around the bottom. it looks so stunning and it’s so easy to create at home. we added little floral bundles and watercolor place cards on each plate. and how great is that and ?

shop this scene:  dinnerware, wooden salad bowl, and  hostess set for serving. 

my mom always taught me to pay attention to every last detail. even something as simple as drinks that fit the color theme make such a difference in the look of the table! also make sure to think about your textures! we mixed simple white linen with wood bowls and rustic bread to complete the scene.

persimmons look amazing in the arrangements, and also just laying around on the table to add an outdoor vibe.

what did you take away from these table ideas? are there any you would like to recreate for your home? we hope you are feeling inspired for the upcoming holiday months!

SALT & STRAW

when we heard that LA was (finally!) getting the portland based raved about ice cream shop, , i knew i wanted to send the girls over there to check it out! i heard they seriously lived up to their reputation… (sad i didn’t get to join them!)

“we sampled so many of their delicious flavors, some of our favorites were stumptown coffee, cinnamon apple donuts and surprisingly tomato water and olive oil, which sounds kind of crazy but it was mild and refreshing.”

“they make all of their ice cream in 5 gallon batches and source local ingredients for all of their seasonal flavors. and the flavors actually taste like the description. they don’t add a ton of extra sugar so you can experience the ingredients which was pretty cool.”

“and they are insanely hospitable, we spent quite a bit of time in there and watched them dish out no pressure samples with a smile to lots of hungry onlookers.”

if you’re in LA check ’em out! their new shop is
