Valentine’s Day Bark

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!

I made chocolate toffee bark for a few people in the office last night (and wrapped them up this morning) as well as made a few extra for Josh to take to work.  They are SO freakin’ good and SO easy to make  (meaning – my mom could probably handle this one).   Get the recipe here from Deep South Dish.     (It’s literally 5 ingredients).    They are a bit gooey, so I wrapped them in wax paper in layers, pulled them in plastic bags from the Paper Source, and then tied with vintage ribbon.

Wishing you a super sweet and wonderful Valentine’s Day!

xx, Hallie

Cute 4th of July Decorations

Looking for last minute party decorations for your 4th of July festivities?  I just came across these awesome fun, and inexpensive decorations from Party City.  They have really cute stuff that really well make your 4th of July celebrations look awesome without being an expensive ordeal.

I’d love to hear how you are decorating for your friends and families this year!

Fluff decorations.  These poufs are so popular right now.  Buy a bunch of these and stagger them in different heights over the buffet table.

I like making flower arrangements.

I love flowers.

What girl doesn’t?! I also like making arrangements.  I’ve worked at florists in high school and college, and definitely have learned a thing or two from different website along the way.

Here are the arrangements I made for our recent Passover.  For dinners, I like arrangements to be low so that it doesn’t interfere with conversation over the meal and everyone can see each other.

Also, here’s another post with other flower arrangements I made for a dinner party at home with some instruction. Click HERE

EASY Entertaining: Putting together a cheese board

I am known for the impromptu little get togethers at my house… it may be two friends, it could be six…
BUT – whom ever it is, or for what…. it’s a celebration to me!
So, last week was Hanukkah and on the short notice, two of my best friends came over and here’s what I whipped up real quick!
An easy cheese board
- I like a variety of cheeses with different flavors and textures: sharp cheddar, brie, smokey gouda, and Jarlesburg (the Jarlesburg was the favorite of the evening)
- I also like to mix in fruit, so 1 package of blackberries, two apples cut, and a bunch of grapes.
-The entire plate cost $27 at the market, which for fast entertaining I think is great!
(For 3 girls, this was pretty much dinner, and some cupcakes but that’s not the point!)

I then laid out a vintage table cloth, brought out the Vera linen napkins and wooden block napkin rings and a simple little party was made.

** The plate used for serving is vintage Fire King.

2 great holiday decor ideas

I love this time of year!  Holiday decor is so fabulous!  
Here are two super easy ideas to dress up your holiday table and your home.
 I’d love to hear the creative home decorating you are doing this holiday season!
 This is too cute and super easy.  Don’t have fancy napkin rings – make some!  I definitely don’t like cheesy-craft-it-yourself projects, but this is darling.  Just string 2 small ornaments on a thread and tie around a napkin.  Easy!!

 I love this simple idea.  
Take multiple strands of ribbon and string a few ornament bells onto it and then hang on your doors.  
It’s such a fab idea and every time you open and close the door you will hear sweet chimes.

If I had an X-mas tree this would be THE ornament!

How Missoni is this?  
If I had a Christmas tree it would be based all around this ornament.  Love the bargello feel to it.
Presh!
