FEBRUARY 15, 2021

A well dressed porch makes me so happy! I get so excited about decorating my doors for each and every holiday! A great wreath dresses up your doors and adds a pop of color to any front exterior. It doesn't even have to be something fancy to make a huge statement.

I am a big fan of decorating my own wreaths. I have enjoyed making wreaths from scratch for our school auctions and friends. I love my @target #target eucalyptus wreaths as they make a great wreath styling staple. You can add a variety of details to it depending on the changing holidays. Even by itself it makes a gorgeous door accent.

This Valentine's Day came at the same time as Mardi Gras as it often does. This year I went with my Valentine's Decor since I really needed some pink in my life with everything going on this year!

During the month of February each year in Louisiana Mardi Gras is celebrated and looked forward to. If you've ever been to a Mardi Gras Parade you know exactly what I'm talking about!

If you'd like to learn a little about entertaining as Louisianians do during this time of year I highly recommend Essentially Lilly: A Guide to Colorful Holidays. It's funny, because Lilly Pulitzer hated the word "holiday," yet she was such an entertainer ("I will let you read about all that when you pick up the book!"). You can purchase it new on @Amazon #Amazon or eBay and many other discount online retailers have it in gently used condition. The Recipes are fantastic, and the photos are so much fun to browse through. I love all of the history and quotes from @lillypulitzer #lillypulitzer.
