Flower Chic: Holiday Flower Ideas

Kelly
December 16

I love an oversized centerpiece for a holiday buffet and this one features some my favorite flowers of the season including: holiday greens, flannel flower, hellebore, amaryllis, scabiosa, gold painted eucalyptus, and baby’s breath.

You can pick up the ingredients to make this arrangement at Fabulous Florals and you’ll need:

- 1 mixed bunch holiday greens

- 3 amaryllis

- 1 bunch hellebore

- 3 bunches flannel flower

- 1 bunch gold spray painted eucalyptus

- 1 bunch baby’s breath

-1 bunch scabiosa

I used an oversized wrought iron urn, you can find sometime similar at your local garden store. Since this container was hollow on the bottom, I put wet floral foam in a mini bucket and overlaid it with chicken wire. For bigger arrangements like this, chicken wire helps to keep the flowers and the foam together. Begin by placing your big greenery pieces to create your shape. Layer in gold eucalyptus and baby’s breath. Place your amaryllis and then the smaller flowers, hellebore, flannel flower, and scabiosa. Happy arranging!

Fashionable: A Cozy Sweater at Apple Lane Farms

November 18

Who doesn’t love a good orchard and Apple Lane Farms in Solvang is among my favorite fall spots. It’s open to the public and you can pick your own apples (the BEST apples ever and stay tuned for an apple chip recipe I’ll be posting on Wednesday). For a nippy fall afternoon I’m loving this chunky sweater which I paired with a simple white T, classic black jeans, my staple Frye boots, gold chain bracelets, and a nude purse, cat eye tortoise shell sunnies all available locally in Santa Barbara at Chapala & Parker. I loved my Brigette- inspired hair and makeup that Jess Wilcox did! And the photos, well I’m pretty sure Lane Dittoe knocked it outta the park.

Santa Barbara Presidio

I love a good full, high-waisted skirt, throw in some graphic green and white stripes, and I’m sold. I paired this skirt with a simple white T (I bought mine locally from Chapala & Parker, similar here), vintage earrings (similar), and a high pony tail complete the look. I really loved how the white walls of the Santa Barbara Presidio popped the skirt. A big thank you to my dear friend, and amazing photographer, Kirsten Ellis of Beaux Arts Photographie for the beautiful photos.

Fashionable: Casual Santa Barbara Style

Kelly
October 14

While it may start be a touch cooler in Santa Barbara, its still by in large flip flops and tank top weather. This look is pretty much my uniform for most of the year…

A pop of gold from some gold reef shaped earrings, similar here.

Jeans are Stevie by Anthropologie and are consistently the most perfect style of jean I’ve found.

I love the back on this top, coral ombre? Yes, please.

Fall Dinner Party Ideas

Kelly
September 16

I love a good cozy dinner party, and with fall upon us ,I thought I’d share a few quick ideas for fall entertaining…

1. Gather mismatched taper candle holders (check out your local thrift store or try Etsy) and group them together for an easy centerpiece.

2. An herb centerpiece can be a quick and pretty solution. Either at a local garden center, or possibly your regular supermarket, pick up some potted herbs. You can re-pot them if you have time, like this in a herb window box centerpiece, here, or simply wrap around the plants brown craft paper, and tie up with twine or jute.

3. I like to use food as part a table’s centerpiece and a charcuterie plate is pretty and tasty. This cutting board right here is pretty perfect.

4. Champagne is a personal fav, I like to setup a champagne bar with garnishes and mixes. Some of my favorite champagne cocktails? This ginger sparkler.

Happy fall!
