The Season Ahead

It is truth when they say that the older you get the faster time goes by.

 I remember like it was yesterday when i was at the Atlanta Market choosing our merchandise for this year's Fall and Christmas seasons. that was back in january.

So much has happened since then, Mr Porterfield fell from a ladder and spent three months in rehab, my father passed away and it has been one of the toughest experiences i have gone through in my almost 34 years of life, I started and finished an immigration process and that has brought so much joy in those moments of darkness AND we transition our store to Fall.


It took about two weeks to get it all done, two long weeks of pricing and merchandising the floor but the results are very pleasing.
soon i will resume my blogging activities and i cant wait to show you all



Also i have started to decorate my home for autumn and i am super exited to show you guys what i am working on, this week i had a LIVE showing of how to put together a swag for you door, if you don't follow me on facebook i recommend you do, i will be doing LIVE classes all throughout the season.

Outdoors Tablescape

I have been dreaming of outdoor dining for a while now however the weather here in the midwest hasn't allow for any of this lately, temperatures have been on the triple digits for a few weeks here but I will not let the heat discourage me from planning an evening of fine outdoors dining with friends soon. 


This is a tablescape I put together a few years ago for a dinner with a few of my closest pals, I remember how I ran around the house looking for materials to pull it off because the evening was shaping up to be so nice.



white tablecloth and a burlap runner were the base for it, i wanted the table to look clean and crisp.


Three little bouquets in the center of the table alongside candle votives, I thought it looked simple and elegant at the same time .


The little details like the flower on the folded napkin is what my friends remember most at the end of the evening.

i love to entertain outdoors, i think mother nature blesses us with so much beauty and we MUST take advantage of it as much as possible.

LIVE... Would You Watch?

There is something I have had in mind for quite a while and was wanting to share with you guys.
I was wondering if you might be interested?
Ever since FACEBOOK started doing live feeds i thought i would do a  LIVE class for anyone who follows me to tune in and learn some of the trick of my trade.


As i am sure you know i work at a flower shop called Porterfield's Flowers and in the past two years I've gathered priceless knowledge and information about flower arranging and seasonal decor.


So tell me would you watch? what day is more convenient for you all? a weekday or sunday evening.
i really think it would be pretty cool if we all share some of our tricks with the world.

Click ( HERE ) to Follow me on Facebook if you are interested. 





I will be joining this parties.
