My favorite holiday: Friendsgiving
4 years. 6 girls. 1 night.
After months of planning and pinning my life away on pinterest - friendsgiving came and went. It was successful to say the least. Friendship means so much to me and I love getting 6 busy girls to come together and talk about the year we had and the memories we made together.
This past weekend I hosted our fourth annual friendsgiving in my home. I had so much fun really taking it to the next level with the decor this year.
My vision was simply rustic and chic. I've been really into mixed metals - combining rose gold, copper and silver. There's something really effortless about combining them all. The woodsy textures and gold accents is where rustic and elegance meet. I guess you could say I was living out my pinterest dreams with this one.
I hope the decor and my little DIY additions inspire you for the upcoming holidays. Hosting can be stressful but so rewarding in the end! Enjoy xx

Thank you to Olfactory for gifting my girls my personalized FTHU fragrance. To be honest, I was super nervous they wouldn't love it as much as I do but they did!! It was the highlight of my night to see they enjoyed the scent I created.
Check out Olfactory on Mott St and personalize your own scent for $75. The experience is so much fun + it's the perfect gift for him or her. Also - my FTHU scent can be yours too. Just ask for it when you visit :)
To create name card holders, I used a few stems from the picks (leftover greenery centerpiece), twigs, and baby's breath. I used twine to tie it altogether in a bow. I truly think the holders were the perfect detail on the plates to keep the woodsy, outdoor theme going.
