Coffee Talk, Entertain, Fashion, Featured, Interiors, Lifestyle, Travel

At last! A week ago, I shared an exciting piece of news on my Instagram stories that I'd been keeping under wraps: I'm opening an online boutique! L. Avenue has been a part of my world for five years, and I have so enjoyed finding fashion treasures around the internet and sharing them with you--from labels that were new to the scene to my tried-and-true favorites.

We have a big Christmas dinner with my family from Ohio every year at this time, so I started working on the tablescape early. I wanted the table to feel like the decor in my home: festive and fun with pops of color and a mix of traditional and vintage touches.

A simple, classic Christmas tablescape

Fashion, Holiday, Interiors
I'm officially adding "tablescap-er" to my list of random hobbies. I love putting together tables for any occasion, but I especially enjoy the process during the holidays.
