I have been dying to share the Valentine’s Day wreath I made. Recently, a few crafty girlfriends and I had a wreath making party that was TONS of fun. Everyone had a unique spin on the holiday and the only theme throughout were the colors red and pink. I had so much fun having this party with my friends in Austin, I wanted to do it again with my friends online!

Pantone’s Color of the Year

Pantone’s pick for color of the year is Marsala, a beautiful, earthy shade named after the famous dessert wine from Sicily.

A rich, reddish color with a deep brown undertone, it leads a broader palette assembled by Pantone as a refreshing return to nature. Described as sophisticated yet grounded, Marsala is a robust color that is meant to evoke feelings of strength and confidence.

In this post, we show you how you can declutter your home and put some post-holiday polish on it using your very own holiday décor. Look around your home before you take your holiday decorations down and you might be pleasantly surprised at what you’ll find. (more…)
