I’m so excited to share this post with y’all!  In case you missed it, earlier this month I shared what I wore to my Ohio baby shower in this post.  The shower was hosted at the Sheraton in Cuyahoga Falls, in the room overlooking the river.  I’m sharing the shower and all the fun details with you in today’s post.  This week on Hello Bump Podcast, Matt and I chatted about our trip home to Ohio and the shower…  But now, I get to actually show you how everything turned out.

First up, and let’s be honest, most importantly, is desserts.  The desserts and dessert table were adorable.

My mom and cousin Mindy made these darling white and pink wreaths that you see above.  If you look closely, the details are so cute.  The wreath on the far left has a rocking horse and the wreath on the far right has a tiny white dress.  Don’t miss the white pumpkins with pink tutus ad rose gold pumpkins along the ledge as well.

My mom and cousin repurposed this changing table as the welcome sign at the entrance of the shower.  I love that they found a Hello Gorgeous pillow.

The gold pumpkin on the top shelf was our guestbook.  Guests signed in with a white marker, so cute!

The pom poms on the middle shelf were all over the shower and so cute.  The tissue paper pom poms were from Paper White Designs.

On the bottom shelf, the white blanket was mine as a baby and was knitted by my mom’s best friend’s (my  Mama Jean) grandmother.  Don’t you love the Hello Bump sign?!  Under the sign is a stack of my favorite books as a little girl.

I loved this little corner.  My mom and cousin Mindy made these pumpkins: UGA for daddy, the glam pumpkin (hello pink lashes) with a baby pink pumpkin in the belly for me and even a Soka pumpkin too!

Along the other wall was a clothesline of baby girl clothes from one of my favorite brands, Little Me.

My Aunt Patty made these cute Welcome napkin holders paired with gold straws for each place setting.

Last but not least, the favors.  Essie nail polish is hands down my favorite polish brand, so of course I’m going to pass down my pink polish love to my little girl.  Loved the personal touch of the Essie pink polishes with the “Tickled Pink” tags made also by my Aunt Patty.

Aren’t all the details and special touches so perfect?  The shower couldn’t have been more perfect.  I loved the pink, white and gold, “our little pumpkin” theme.  Everything was so pretty and feminine and special.  The amount of thought and time that everyone put into the shower was evident in all of the pretty little details.  A huge thank you to my mom, cousin Mindy, Aunt Gina, mother-in-law, cousin Jen and more who all pitched in to make this day of celebration so beautiful and full of love.  I hope  you enjoyed this peek into our special day.

Dining Room Reveal & Thanksgiving Tablescape

150 150 Angela Lanter

My first home tour on Hello Gorgeous was back in 2013.  I was a newlywed and a new blogger at the time.  When I look back at this old post, it’s so crazy to think of how far we’ve come in just four short years.  We now live in a different house and we’ll be a family of three before we know it.  So crazy!

I haven’t shared a tablescape post since 2013 for one simple reason…  I didn’t have a dining table.  Sounds crazy, I know.  Sometime after our first married Christmas, Hello Gorgeous began taking over our home.  We chose to forego our dining room, to have extra space for work.  We had a breakfast bar that we ate 99% of all our meals at.

I really enjoy decorating for holidays; however, practicality won out on the dining room space because of the other 11 months of the year.  Our new house has the space for a dedicated studio/office for me AND a dining room.  Cue the dancing red dress girl emofi here!

It’s been so much fun picking out new pieces for our dining room.  So without further ado, here is our dining room all decorated for Thanksgiving.  Just a head’s up, this room isn’t 100% finished yet.  We’re on the hunt for the perfect buffet and wall decor still.

We fell in love with this dining table in April while visiting 30A, but we had no way of getting it home.  I was able to track it down on Wayfair and it turned out to be the perfect piece.  We paired it with french round back chairs and upholstered end chairs from Restoration Hardware and achieved the exact look I wanted.  Once I find the perfect buffet and wall decor, I’ll show even more of the room.

I wanted to create a beautiful table setting with warm tones.  I’m always looking for a reason to use gold flatware and Thanksgiving is the perfect excuse.  I’m really happy with the way this setting turned out with the burlap ruffled placemats, scalloped charger and delicate Thankful plate.

This post is so delayed because of my centerpiece.  I wanted to create my own centerpiece that fit the room perfectly.  I love to DIY when I can, but sometimes life just doesn’t allow me to put the time into a project that I’d like to.  I decided to keep my everyday soft green runner and began decorating with these cute little white pumpkins I snagged at TJ Maxx.  I added in other pumpkins in various colors and sizes from Hobby Lobby and Homegoods along with my white wood candle holders from World Market.  Something was missing…  So, in came the fairy lights, pinecones and greenery…  Voila!  My centerpiece was complete.

How do you decorate for Thanksgiving?  We have a hybrid of Thanksgiving meets Christmas going on in our house and honestly…  I love it.  We put up our new flocked Christmas tree in the family room and it’s stunning.  I haven’t decided how to decorate it yet, so Pinterest is calling my name!  All items in my table setting are listed below.

5 Tips for Minimizing Christmas Shopping Stress

When it comes to Christmas shopping, I like to plan ahead.  I started my gift list that I’m going to buy weeks ago!  Does that make me a crazy Christmas lady?  Probably.  I’m totally cool with that though, lol!

A lot of us should keep a budget in perspective when it comes to holiday shopping.  I wanted to share some of my best tips for maintaining your sanity (and your budget) during Christmas:

    • Make a list of people you plan to buy for, then decide how much you want to spend on each person.  Planning out holiday spending in advance will keep the stress (and marital disagreements) down to a minimum.
    • Be realistic about your shopping list.  You don’t need to buy a gift for everyone you know.  Audit your list- remove anyone you don’t absolutely have to buy for.
    • Save Christmas money throughout the year.  A Christmas savings account helps to equip you financially for the hefty spending you may be planning to do come December.
    • Choose gifts wisely.  You can find affordable gifts that the people in your life will love.  For instance, the Burt’s Bees Essential Kit holiday gift set is the perfect way to give the gift of natural beauty products to a beauty lover in your life.  It makes a great last minute stocking stuffer for under $10.  This gift set comes with five trial-sized products so you’re able to sample different, new beauty products.  I have been a fan of the Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm with Vitamin E and Peppermint for years!  It keeps my lips moisturized and conditioned while the peppermint leaves behind a cool, tingly feeling.  I also love the Burt’s Bees Body Lotion with Milk & Honey…  It’s non-greasy and smells so yummy, plus the scent is 100% natural.  You can purchase the Burt’s Bees set exclusively at your local Walmart and Walmart.com along with so many other affordable gifts this Christmas.  Walmart has everything you need for to prepare for the holidays this season!
    •  Keep the real reason for Christmas in mind.  It’s so easy to allow the stress of Christmas shopping, and all that comes with it, to steal our holiday joy.  The best part of the holidays is being with those you love, so don’t allow the pressure to turn you into the grinch.

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Burt’s Bees. The opinions and text are all mine.
