Tacky. Pastel. Nope.

Historically, Easter has not been one of my favorite holidays. I’m all for church, easter egg hunts and giant bunnies but I just can’t seem to get on board with Easter decorations. That’s why I’ve been so excited to see the trend to take Easter back into the realm of cool. By mixing in some unexpected GOLD with those ever-present Easter pastels, we can elevate Easter to…dare I say…Glam!?!

Below are some of our favorite gold and glam-tastic Easter decorations:


1. Somebunny Love You print by justabirdprintables 2. Bunny Placecard Holders by The Sweetest Occasion 3. Pastel & Gold Table Setting via Pinterest 4. Graffiti Eggs by Paper + Stitch

Goodbye, Summer

Hello, Fall!! Tomorrow’s the official first day of the autumn season and we say bring on the sweater weather! But before we start ‘Pumpkin-Spicing’ every thing in sight, we thought we’d ease you into the season with a few new additions to our Parlour jewelry collection. We think these dark-hued Agate necklaces are a great way to add a little autumn flare, without having to break out the scarves just yet!

Here’s to a happy, happy Home Ec season!
