Good morning, our wonderful friends! We are counting down the days until the family gathers and we are surrounded by people we love.Until then, it’s time to get cooking!
When it comes to cooking and prepping and organizing, few things are as useful as a beautiful kitchen island.
It’s where we’ll prepare Christmas Eve dinner, our traditional “Company Chicken,” brown rice (the kind with the butter and consumme, not the healthy kind), biscuits, marinated asparagus and yummy rocky road fudge.
It’s where we’ll prep breakfast casseroles to pop in the fridge for cooking Christmas morning.
It’s where we’ll decorate gingerbread houses that are far from masterpieces but full of memories.
It’s where we’ll sit and have a morning cup of coffee when Santa arrives far too early…
And where we’ll finish off Christmas Day with a heaping helping of whatever leftovers we can find.
Maybe most fun of all, the island is where we’ll create cookies for Christmas Eve and beyond.
They won’t look at beautiful as these. No doubt about that.
But there comes a time when we all have to realize that, sometimes, looking good isn’t the most important thing. To that end I had the pleasure of visiting Your Carolina yesterday to talk about creating a wonderful kids’ table for the holidays. We had the best time! Take a peek!

For those last soirees of summer, the bar is by far one of the most crucial elements of entertaining. When your bar is as beautiful as these you’ll be ready for an impromptu celebration at a moment’s notice!
Mixers, spirits, lemons and limes… These are all bar must haves!
Since we have only two house tours left before Labor Day, we’ve been thinking pretty hard about where we want to spend these last couple of weeks before summer. Today, we were thinking Sullivan’s Island, SC sounded pretty great!
Hi, friends! We hope you had a wonderful holiday and are gearing up for a fabulous 2015. If sprucing your space is one of your goals for this year, look no further. And if you want to hear more about our goals for 2015, check out our guest post on The Enchanted Home!
