i’ve always been really terrible at going to the grocery store. i don’t know why, i just always procrastinate or get busy and end up either eating out or cooking canned beans and brown rice for every meal. so when a friend of mine told me that WHOLE FOODS DELIVERS…my eyes lit up. i’ve already done it a few times and it’s amazing. pick what you want online and it’s at your front door in 1-2 hours. (seriously, this is not a sponsored post, it just saves me tons of time and figured you should know! especially with the holidays coming up.) the first time it’s free and then it’s a super low minimum after that. very worth it! and they save your order so that the next time you can easily re-order your items.
they even have recipes where you can just buy everything from the list. genius. check it out here!

I’m trying to gather some inspiration for the Holidays (they are creeping on us by the way!) I’m looking for a new color scheme this year, far from the traditional Christmas color palette. These ideas are right up my alley! Would you dare go bright & bold for your Holiday decor? –stephanie

this year moon canyon and i decided to host a holiday wreath workshop and i think it might have been the start of an annual tradition.
each student started with the same base and then kristen allowed them to come up and select their own variety of foliage to build around their wreath. she recommended stating with a type of cedar and/or eucalyptus and then adding accents from there.
students had the option to adorn their wreaths with unexpected additions like persimmons, artichokes and dried lotus pod (pictured above).
it was amazing to see how stunning each one was in the end. everyone took their vision in a completely different direction and created something that they would feel proud hanging in their home this holiday season.
room forty created an amazing holiday spread for us. the tomato soup with mini grilled cheeses on top were a huge hit.
and the cutest mini pies and deviled eggs. their food presentation is on point! a big thank you to brittany wood for capturing the day so perfectly.
one of the best parts about the wreaths is that they’ll last you through the entire holiday season! get together with your girlfriends and start making some. you can follow this DIY here.

there are very few occasions where flowers are not an appropriate gift. they’re the perfect thing to bring to a friend in need, celebrate a special occasion or simple say “i love you.” we wanted to put a twist on the traditional bouquet wrapping so i worked with maddy nye to create several different graphics (that you can download and print below) and then my favorite moon canyon made three perfect arrangements for us!
once you print the graphics, cut it into a perfect square and fold the edges over to create a cone and seal with double sided tape. if the steams of your flowers are wet, put a plastic bag around them before placing inside your cone.
i think the “you’re fresh” one might be my favorite, what about you?
