A holiday home tour is one of my favorite parts of the Christmas season!  There is nothing more magical than seeing room after room decked out in holiday cheer- it adds a joy to our souls and puts everyone in the Christmas spirit! I am thrilled to host a virtual holiday tour of the fabulous home of Beth Pressley of Birmingham, AL. You know when you walk up onto the porch, that you are in for a holiday treat!  Look at the fabulous garlands, bows, wreaths, and nutcrackers!

Beth and I went to Auburn together and were sorority sisters- and Beth was as fabulous then as she is now.  It’s just part of her DNA!  A leader in every aspect, Beth embodies a goodness that people are drawn to and a spirit of love and warmth! As you will see diplayed throughout her home~

As you walk in the double doors of the front of Beth’s home, you are treated to a host of Christmas trees, ornaments, greenery, nutcrackers, and all things Christmas.  Enjoy a cup of cheer and all of the gorgeous eye candy offered by Beth and her decorating talents…

I have so many favorites when it comes to all of the decorations, but I think this wreath with the bow and the bottle brush trees below might be one of the top ones for me!  I just love how cheerful and bright it is!

The breakfast nook is gorgeous all dressed with a Christmas table setting- and the tree is stunning.  Did you notice the plate wreath hanging in the window? Beth left no detail out when she decorated her home!

Beth added a miniature tree in the master bedroom and placed the tree in a beautiful blue and white oversized pot. The nutcracker tree has lots of personality and is the perfect addition to a bedroom.

Speaking of bedrooms, Beth has a daughter that is especially fond of The Grinch! I love how Beth goes all out for her so that she can enjoy the special time of the year with one of her favorites in her room!  Look at how fun~

There is nothing like the bright colors and happy prints of Lilly Pulitzer to make every day feel like a party!  For my daughter’s 12th birthday party, she wanted to decorate cakes~ Lilly-style!  So, in order to decide how to mesh the two, I kept thinking “if Lilly had a cake shop instead of a juice stand”… I have to admit, this was one fun party to plan!  It is a blast to see where ideas go in the hands of a TWEEN!  Enjoy and remember, “…being happy never goes out of style!”. 

CAMILLE’S CLUBHOUSE ~ Confectionery, Soda Shoppe, Spa

My daughter had lots of ideas of what she wanted to do to celebrate her 10th birthday!  She wanted to have lots of cookies~ and have a soda shoppe ~ and set up a spa for nail painting!  With so many ideas, I knew we should come up with something that would tie it all together.  And, that is how Camille’s Clubhouse became the theme- the Clubhouse is where you can find lots of her favorite things!  We sent invitations with a an insert that had a “password” that had to be unscrambled and brought to the party for “entry”.  That was an easy way to get the guests involved before the party even started!
