Tis the Season {The Parlor: My Home Tour}

Tis the season to be jolly and decorate! I showed you the facade of my home in an earlier post, so now it's time to open the front door and come inside!

The parlor tree is decked in silvers, golds, and reds. The parlor tree features my ceramic oyster ornaments, clip-on candle lights, and mercury glass acorns. The tree is very elegant in the parlor.

The mantle is always a favorite place to decorate. Live mixed garlands are draped with real oyster shells. I always add a little bit of Southern flair to my decor. Oyster shell trees and collections of fox and deer make the season bright.

I am looking forward to sharing some good ole parlor patter this holiday season.

Tis the Season {PRC Holiday Home Tour}

Saturday was the most picture perfect day for the annual PRC Holiday Home Tour in the Garden District of New Orleans. The weather was cool, breezy, and sunny which is unlike the 80 degree temperatures of the past two years. When it is cool here, it feels like the Christmas season.

The homes featured this year were beautiful. It is always fun to venture into the homes of others and surmise what goes on in them.

You can read all about each of the homes on tour this year. Click HERE!

My favorite home was actually one that I snubbed my nose at on the outside, 2352 Camp Street. Once inside, I could tell that designer Shaun Smith waved his magic decorating wand. Magnificent! 

Photos could not be taken inside the homes, but I did my best to take some of the exteriors.

If you have not experienced the PRC's annual Holiday Home Tour, I definitely recommend it.

NYC 2017 {#cheersthroughnyc}

During our NYC stays, J & I love to have cocktails at the cool bars in the city. This trip was no exception.

Some of my favorite places are:

Park Avenue Winter

Bar at Clement {The Peninsula}

The Polo Bar


The Bar {Baccarat}

Monkey Bar

Add these to your NYC list!

And yes, I even had a couple Bloody Mary's in first class on my way back home.

Cheers through NOLA, y'all!
