Craft Cocktails for Father’s Day

This post is sponsored by Farmhouse Pottery but the words and opinions are all my own.

I mean, it’s a tale as old as time – their love language is typically food and drinks, am I right? So why not just give them what they want?!

Within the last year, date nights were far and in-between and Nick started stocking a more delicious and accessible home bar. He was whipping up late night Old Fashions or weekend Margaritas with his own simple syrup and fresh squeezed lime juice. So as Father’s Day is fast approaching the idea of gifting him the Farmhouse Pottery Craft Cocktail kit was a no brainer. Granted, we’re squeezing in a date night, maybe once a month now, but we’re still at home a bunch and Florida is getting into full on Summer mode. Lot’s of pool days in our future and nothing goes better with pool time than homemade margaritas – especially when you have two crazy boys living it up in the pool.

Plus, the cocktail kit is beautiful – perfect to display in/around your home bar or pantry and odds are the kit serves more than the the desired audience. Win win!

If a nice drink and a bit of relaxing is all that dad wants this year – heck, I’d give it to him ten fold. With how hard Nick works and all the things he does around here for us (practically every.single.meal) I’d make him how ever many rounds.

Sooooo maybe cocktails aren’t his thing? That’s okay – what about coffee or baking!? Farmhouse is great resource for all things gifts and heirloom style pottery.

5 Things

a few things I saw and loved lately.

1 // Custom Book Covers

I mean it’s brilliant. Half the time I take the covers off and let the linen book speak for itself, but for books you want to use for decor and it doesn’t jive with your color palette I’ve always just turned the spines around… but voila! You don’t have to anymore. Get custom book covers made in the colors/sizes of your choosing and make your shelfs shine!

2 // Glossier Body Bar

I’ve been using this bar for 2-3 weeks now and I love it. I’m not a huge exfoliator but I love how it gently exfoliates, and softens my skin and it smells amazing. It’s a glorious beauty body bar and I’ll definitely order more once this one is gone. Summer skin here I come! Plus, it’s vegan and cruelty free. ++

3 // The New Currency

A quote I’ve saved in Instagram a dozen times. Let these words sink in a for a second.

4 // Dome Crush

Besides my huge crush on our own kitchen dome, I’m also loving this large dome moment – love how it’s white and goes so well with the bright space and warm kitchen island. image: @laurejoliet

5 // RAILS

Just received the Rails summer catalog and loved their photography, mood boards and overall color palette. I’ve seen bloggers wear Rails, but I’ve yet to purchase anything of theirs. Eyeing a few styles:

Farmhouse Pottery

They very rarely have sales – usually (2) a year so if you’re like me and love heirloom pottery pieces for decor and kitchen then you need to check out their Second’s Sale. Basically goods with minor imperfections that quite honestly, we probably wouldn’t notice but they do, and are selling just about everything an amazing discount. I have everything from their silo bowls, mugs, vases, crocks wooden bowls and pitchers! Classic handmade pieces that will last a lifetime and will look good in any home. Back in 2018, Hudson and I met Nick in Vermont and we stayed next to Farmhouse Pottery and I was literally in awe of their sweet shop and the quality of goods their produce.

Favorite Affordable Art Pieces

I’ve been sourcing art for clients lately and I’ve been stumbling upon some really beautiful pieces that I thought I would share.

Art can totally transform the space – whether you hang a piece on the wall or lean it against the wall. Layering art is also a beautiful way to add dimension, color and even personality!

5 Things

Some things I saved and thought about lately…

1 // #WORKYOURHOME

Yep, it’s a thing. Kinda my thing – but I want to see how YOU #workyourhome. I’d love to share my favorites and create an environment for folks to share home decor tips, tricks, hacks and just moments in time. Use this hashtag when you share all things home.

2 // Vignettes

Creating more of these little moments at home and for clients are really important to me. It’s a way to make a simple moment shine in midst of chaos, mess and real life. Not everything has to be perfect but little scenes like this one from Amber Interiors evokes happiness.

3 // Summer MOOD

a lovely palette and a lovely capture. so many new pins to my travel and seasons board.

4 // Summer Style

Jules can do no wrong and I’m in constant awe how she still (after all of these years) produces such stunning content. This whole look and vibe of her photos is so perfect. Let me live in this look all summer.

5 // Schumacher’s New Sister Brand – Backdrop

A cool new paint option since we don’t have enough 🙂 But their new collection with Dunkin’ is making me happy and hungry!
