    Getting your House Ready for Guests

    Getting your House Ready for Guests

    Although I am not hosting for the holidays this year, I love to find quick ways to spruce up spaces! We currently live in a tiny condo (we are building a house), so prepping for guests will not happen this year. I mean....I have no dining room or coffee table!
    EVERYTHING is in storage!
    That is another story, for another day! 
    Ways to spruce up spaces could be as simple as changing out your pillows on your couch, changing a dining room light, or switching up a mirror.
    Take advantage of the CYBER MONDAY sales too and you could walk away with a fantastic look and a fantastic deal! Our lighting+pillows+mirrors are 40% off right now! Wowza! Check out our great sale!!
    Mirrors.......
    Mirrors are easy to change out and can make all the difference. Guests will be using your powder room like crazy so that may be a fun place to change up your mirror!
    Some mirrors that we think have a very similar look to these inspirations pics.....
                
    Pillows......
    Check out some of these fun pillow combinations.....
    A touch of texture and color is always a nice way to change up the look in your living room or bedroom.
    Lighting......
    Changing out your lighting can make all the difference! 
    Lighting we are currently swooning over....
    That was just the tip of the iceberg on prepping for holiday guests.....Now you need to get out all the fun holiday decor and get your tree up!
    Have fun decorating!!

    Chattanooga Events

    Chattanooga Events

    Chattanooga has been voted the “Best Town Ever” by Outdoor Magazine…twice. So when it seems like we’re boasting about this city we are lucky enough to call home, at least we can back it up, right?! As the fall approaches, we’re busy planning away the events at the shoppe. We’re also getting giddy about all the amazing outdoor events around the city!

    1.3 Sister’s Music Festival

    This riverfront event has been held in the scenic city for the past decade, the event brings top Bluegrass artist every year. Although coolers will not allowed, I'm planning a pre-party beforehand and feature a few of my favs….maybe a taco bar from Taco Mamacita! Our Chips + Dip Napkins are perfect for the occasion! Toss all the sauces + dips into our recycled glass bowls for a easy + clean set up!

    2.Wine Over Water

    Falling on the same weekend as 3 Sister’s, Wine Over Water is celebrating it’s twenty-third year. This event begins on Friday evening with a silent auction + wine tasting at the Chattanoogan Hotel. The following day, the event will take place on the historic Walnut Street Bridge. Check out the complete schedule here! After the event is over, I know i’m going to be picking out my favorite wines and wanting to grab a stemless wine glass + enjoy! Don't forget that wine + wrapped in a tea towel is the perfect hostess gift!

    3.Oktoberfest

    Known as Chattanooga’s oldest and largest Oktoberfest, this local event is held at the Chattanooga Market October 14 + October 15th. The event boasts local breweries and food vendors. Grab your favorite beer from the festival + fill up our recycled conical glass. 50 Places to Drink Beer + Elk Bottle Opener can be your go-to gift of the season for all the beer connoisseurs in your life.

    4.Boo in the Zoo

    This family-friendly event will have fun for you + your little ones! I’m taking my sweet niece + cannot wait to see her excitement! Get your house ready for Halloween with fun decor the kids will enjoy! Jack O’Lanterns + Black Cat Pillows + Metal Pumpkins

    5.Head of the Hooch

    This annual event is one of the largest regatta rowing competitions in the country. Held the first weekend of November every year, Head of the Hooch attracts thousands to the scenic city. Andrea Davis’ artwork shows the different views of the Tennessee River where the regatta is held.

    Happy fall y'all!

    Tailgating 101

    Tailgating 101

    The most wonderful time of year is upon us (in my opinion at least)! Football season, oh how I love the loud cheers + constant competition + yummy treats. Whether you are an SEC fan  or a NFL fan (Titan Up!).....tailgating (or grovin' as we like to say in Oxford) should always be the start to your weekend's in the fall. Here are a few of our must have's to throw the best tailgate party this season!
    A fun basket to cart all of your goods to and from the game....
    (Easy stop...Whole Foods Chattanooga before the game for all the goodies)

    This runner is on it's way to the shoppe...we can't wait to use it! (Let us know if you want us to save you one!!)

    Swooning over this set-up...
    Serve it up…add a Bloody Mary Bar to your tailgate to begin the morning. I love feeling the bar up with all the fixings!
    horseradish + tabasco + bacon + lime are just a few of my favs.
    One of the best recipes is here! Oh so delicious!
    Instead of Sweet Tea or Coca-Cola in those mason jar...How about this take for the fresh Bloody Mary's...If you are from Chattanooga...stop at Imbibe before you head to the game)
    I am loving this take for your silverware (yes silverware is a must at Ole Miss!)
    Quick idea...Add these containers to our Wooden Handle Box to transport + display!
    Here is a great idea for condiments and salads too.....
     
    An easy + quick go to is a charcuterie board...build it on a custom board! Such a great gift idea too!
    Whether you’re cheering on the Vols or the Dawgs, these napkins are universal. Display your favorite dip (our current fav: warm charred brussels sprouts dip with ricotta and bacon...featured in the cookbook...DIPS + SPREADS) Using a bright R.Wood platter in your teams color to display...equals instant team spirit.
    We hope everyone is serving the perfect drinks + snacks + cheering on your favorite team...enjoy this season!
    Have a lovely day + Hotty Toddy!

    Fall Favorites

    Fall Favorites

    So technically autumn does not start until September 22----but I can't help but get the ball rolling and set out some touches of Fall. Some people consider the start of Fall when the "coffee bars" release Pumpkin Spice Lattes (PSL) and fun cinnamon spiced concoctions.

     We consider Fall the day after Labor Day. (For the record my favorite fall drink is: The Great Pumpkin Latte from Milk & Honey)
     
    Our fun Fall goods have started to roll in at Sophie's and we are so excited for the change of season. Here are some favorites......
     
    Spiked Cider by Rewined. Definetly a favorite candle at Sophie's this fall scent is filled with apples, cinnamon and clove...ahhh. A classic fall scent that we always swoon over. Rewined has created a candle line crafted in recycled wine bottles + mimicking the flavors of wine. 
    So far this little fella has been a hit at the shop. More are on order-----!! How fun and whimsical. Get on the list to get one when they come in!!! We're all OBSESSED. 
    A forever favorite at the shop and easy to decorate as the season changes. Our five votive holder can easily transition with the change of the season...think filling it with......mini pumpkins, acorns, or candy corn!  
     
    I had a first glimpse of pumpkins and mums out at one of my favorite produce stops. I can't wait to set up my porch at home---or at least dream of setting up my porch. We are still building our farmhouse....so here are some of my favorite porches that I will have to wait til' next year to pull off.
     
    Our fall candles should be delivered any day......
    Back in stock soon-----Harvest Gold and Orange Rind+Spice. Mmmmmm! The best!
     
    Happy ALMOST Fall Ya'll.....
