In Season :: Kale & White Bean Crostini

‘Tis the season for holiday parties to begin… I don’t know about you but I (Jeanine) am still pretty darn full from Thanksgiving. So today I thought I’d offer up a healthy holiday appetizer idea. Of course, healthy still has to taste really good, so here’s what I did to make these little bites delicious: […]

Holiday Crafting at Anthropologie

Remember when I announced the holiday crafting event that I hosted with Anthropologie a couple weeks ago? Well the big night has come and gone, and it was even more festive and fun than I could have imagined… I wish that you all could have been there! (but for those of you who missed it, […]

Gift Guide :: Lizzie Garrett

As the unofficial resident tomboy of the Camille Styles team, I (Jennifer) couldn’t be more excited about revealing the first featured guest of our 2012 Holiday Gift Guide Series. Lizzie Garrett is the author of one of my very favorite blogs as well as the gorgeous coffee table book from Rizzoli, Tomboy Style: Beyond the […]

Fine Print :: Folkloric Gift Tags

Have any of you gotten started on your holiday gift wrapping? Each year we get giddy just thinking of the different packaging possibilities, and this holiday season we thought we’d reach out to one of our favorite creative ladies to help us lock down our gift wrapping concepts. Avalon Mckenzie, blogger and graphic designer at […]

Merry-Making with Minted Party Decor!

As much as I love dreaming up the perfect party theme and spending hours crafting all the little details…the holiday season is way too busy for me to DIY everything! I was so excited when my friends at Minted gave me the scoop on their new line of party decor suites full of all the decorative […]

Thanksgiving Snapshots

Looking through photos from Thanksgiving this morning, and thought I’d share a few of my favorites. It was such a special day full of family and the best food… and needless to say, Phoebe was showered with endless amounts of attention by her grandparents, aunts and uncles (she’s the first grandchild on both sides.) Thanks […]

The Perfect Bite :: Homemade Baileys Irish Cream

Is anyone else having trouble buttoning their pants today or is it just me? Jess here and on this blissful Black Friday, I’d be silly to bring you something that you’d have to chew so soon after your Thanksgiving feast. Accordingly, I’m pouring up the most decadent of all sip-able holiday indulgences…Baileys Irish Cream. Most […]

A Very Merry ShoeMint Soirée!

I’ve mentioned before that I’m a big fan of ShoeMint (the members-only site with super on-trend designs by Rachel Bilson & Nicole Chavez), so when they asked me to design a collection of holiday soirées inspired by ShoeMint styles, I couldn’t resist. C’mon, pretty shoes plus Christmas parties… what’s not to love? I’ve been craving […]

A Day of Thanksgiving

Today I’m thankful for… Being married to my best friend and favorite person in the world. Having the most talented, fun, smart and creative team I could imagine. You girls make work not feel like work. Cappuccinos every morning. The friendly, relaxed vibe of Austin. Yesterday I was out running Thanksgiving errands and was once […]

A “Friendsgiving” Feast

As the workweek comes to a close, I’m counting down the hours until family arrives from out of town, wrapping up emails and getting ready to shut down my laptop in favor of unhurried hours spent talking around a blazing fire. Now’s the time to transition into the holiday mentality and focus on the things […]

My Life, Styled :: Up And Away

We are headed to Austin this week for the holiday and I (Jen) am counting down the minutes! I am also already planning my day-of-travel outfit, which is pretty much my airport uniform at this point. While there are plenty of instances when getting dressed is purely a fun, creative expression of style, dressing for air […]

Last-Minute Thanksgiving Guide

Did anyone wait until the last minute and save all their Thanksgiving planning for today? Guilty as charged. I’ve been crazy busy prepping for a series of holiday collaborations that we’re working on with kate spade new york, plus a full editorial calendar here on the blog and last week’s crafting event with Anthropologie…all while […]

The Thanksgiving Table :: Nicolette Camille

As we enter the home stretch of Thanksgiving preparations, (did it sneak up on anyone else?!) let’s all hit pause for a moment and share a deep relaxing breath as we gaze upon the beauty of the last installment in our fall florals guest series. Feels good, doesn’t it? I can’t think of a better […]

DIY :: Thankful for Leftovers

If you’re like me, you go into the Thanksgiving meal feeling like you could eat an entire cow. You’ve starved yourself all morning long and pulled on those stretchy pants in preparation for the most important meal of the year, and then after one trip to the buffet table, you’re stuffed (womp womp). That’s right, […]

Thanksgiving Favors for you, from Style Me Pretty

And we’re off! Thanksgiving week has officially arrived, and with it the mad dash to check off the grocery list, iron the table linens, polish silver (may or may not happen), craft the place cards and search for the perfect spiked cider recipe. And what about something special to leave at each guest’s place setting? […]

10 Best Dishes with a Twist

Aside from the crisp weather and family time, I think a big part of what makes Thanksgiving (and all holidays, for that matter) so special is the tradition that that gets passed down each year… especially when it comes to the food. Of course it’s hard to argue with time-tested seasonal ingredients, but I love […]

In Season :: Poblano Cornbread Stuffing

I (Jeanine) come from a very traditional midwestern family where some Thanksgiving traditions are not to be messed with. I don’t know how some of these culinary delights came to be, but I’m sure many of you can relate… the infamous canned green bean casserole made with canned cream of mushroom soup and canned fried […]
