Everyday Decor: A Splash of Halloween

Can you believe October is almost over? Going through our calendars yesterday, we realized Halloween is around the corner and neither of us had done an ounce of decorating, let alone bought a pumpkin! Considering it is already the 22nd, we knew we had to act fast, so we threw together this simply stated look for the upcoming Halloween holiday. We assembled it on an entry table in Marion's house, but we think it could look great on a mantle.

We gathered eucalyptus, greenery, white pumpkins and some decorative votives and layered them together on the table.

Voila, an easy way to add a splash of Halloween!

Everyday Entertaining: Sunday Morning Coffee (part two)

Last week, in this post we showed you a simple/clean coffee setup for your overnight guests. We had so many people tell us how much they liked the post, that we decided we needed to do a second installment. So, here is part two!

We like to use a tray to create a "station" for your guests. It let's them know that, "This is out for you to enjoy."

Snip some greenery from a nearby plant to make the area a little bit brighter.

Don't forget to show us how you entertain on instagram by tagging us and using the hashtag #ODentertains. You might inspire our next blog post!

Friday Favorites

We are one day closer to unveiling our new website, branding and updated blog look. We think you are really going to like it! In the meantime, here is a round up of our Friday Favorites.

1. We were excited to read about Lauren Lail of Library Vintage on the So Good this week and then we were really flattered when we saw that she mentioned us in her feature as one of the "Can't-Miss Spots for Gifts".  Whoa, thanks Lauren!

2. Last night we went to the Fall Runway Show at Hampden Clothing. It is always so exciting see what looks they have created.

3.  Great news, our horn bangles are back in stock! Buy them here.

Have a great weekend,

Everyday Entertaining: Sunday Morning Coffee

Everyone loves waking up to the smell of coffee. We like to think it's the perfect way to greet overnight guests. But...sometimes your guests may wake before you, so it's a good idea to set up the coffee spread the night before. No one wants to fumble through the kitchen looking for mugs or forgo sugar because they couldn't find it. Here is one of our favorite early morning coffee spreads.

It looks pretty inviting, right? Just make sure your coffee maker is set to brew or leave out a few pods for the Keurig. What other tricks do you have for entertaining overnight guests?
