The Carroll House: Before

The Carroll House: Before
Well there's no better way to strengthen (or test) a marriage than a good, old-fashioned home remodel. This Park Drive home came packed full of mismatched wallpapers, atrocious paneling, and good bones. It is a beauty in the making.

Crazy Over White Pumpkins

Crazy Over White Pumpkins
Today's table was inspired by my new obsession: white pumpkins. I used white pumpkins as my focal point and built off of them. To center the table, I filled our dough bowl full of cute, little, white pumpkins. I added boxwood shrub clippings as a base to place our dough...

Cotton Harvest

Cotton Harvest
It's that time of year again. On a drive through West Tennessee last week, cotton fields were blooming aplenty. There's nothing like a crisp breeze in the air and a field full of cotton. So for this week's table, we decided to bring the crisp breeze and field to you....
