Hi, guys! Our annual holiday gift guide is here. From Christmas tree ornaments, candles, candle holders, tabletop, plants, home decor and dinnerware…etc.We are putting together something quite special for the year of 2020 and we are living blogging our gift ideas right here on our blog. Please check back constantly for updates. Happy Black Friday Shopping!
In the year of 2020, we want to go a little bit extra bold in our holiday show-house design. The reason is simple that we are all so desperate to go on a journey of adventure after we have stayed in our home for so long. As we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel( yes, several of vaccines for COVID-19 are coming), let’s still practice all of the safe social manners. And rather, let’s play a little bit of magic at home. In this year’s holiday show-house, we introduced some bold patterns such as leopard prints and folks art. We put things that don’t seem belong to each other together to create fun, playful and the one-of-the-kind holiday decor that helps express ourselves with some cheers and dreams in this special moment.
We usually have a back-to-back workout schedule over the weekend –long distance hiking and running. So it is pretty tiring at the end of the day. And recover is the key for us to get back to the weekly track. We usually do carbs loading over the weekends and find it is really help accelerate the recovery. One of our favorite things to do after the hiking and running is to just chill out in our backyard by the fireside and enjoy some garden fresh–some we got from the farmer’s market and some we picked up from our backyard. We feel those rich autumn colors really put us in a festive mood.
We have blogged about Thanksgiving decor tips in the past several years from the front door, entry decor to tabletop and food. We thought it would be a good idea to put them together here in case you need a little bit extra inspiration to host your own Thanksgiving dinner party during this on-going corona-virus pandemic. Our mantra is always about creating memorial moments in life.
And yes we all know that means a good-looking table top and some interesting recipes besides traditional ThanksGiving dishes. So, we share 6 tips to set up table-tops in an elegant way and hope you will get inspired. After all, life is about celebrating every special moment, specially those with family.
Yes, pumpkins, pumpkins and pumpkins for your Thanksgiving dinner table–all different colors and sizes. They look particularly festive when paired with greenery and fresh jewel-tone flowers. Read more…
Fall decor is all about layers and colors. So I feel it is an exciting season to create something fresh, warm and inviting in the chilled weather. At the end of the day, we all love to come back a beautiful home and rest well. Plus, as we all know, the holiday season is approaching. So we can always start somewhere to make some changes. Since we are on the way to wrap our hill project in Orange county, I am going to talk about fall decor we incorporated for the entry. Read more…
Christmas and New year are officially in count-down now. Hope you are in a mood for just being festive to celebrate the end of 2018.
One thing that fascinates me about holiday is the cheerful jewel-tone color palette. I feel that most people are just too scared to use the rich jewel-tone colors on the regular days. But those colors are not just for holidays and they do make you happier and enhances your appetite. And most importantly, they are from Nature. So this rich color jewel-tone palette can actually put you at ease and remind you it is time to celebrate. I finally find the time to put together our Thanksgiving table set and will sure update this post soon. Enjoy! Read more…
Hope everyone just had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. We usually dined out or went to relatives houses for a big family Thanksgiving dinner. This year, we decided to do something different maybe because of LA’s traffic. I am just joking although it is kind of true. The major motivation is that we have some fine China at home and we want to eat healthy as much as we can. Plus I was in a good mood to make some fresh flower arrangements and a Thanksgiving tables cape. So here is what we did. Read more…
Hope you feel these tips are helpful. This year, together,let’s pray every family safe and well.

Hi, guys, happy Boxing Day. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Day.

I did both and quite understand that hectic shopping experiences. If the physical shopping is not your thing( I know some of you may really enjoy that), I have something quite special for you today.

I just purely love all of the creative processes.
The flowers and greenery for our Christmas tabletop—yes, they are garden-fresh and are all from our backyard. I used Juniper branches, lemons, lemon leaves, camellias, red Christmas berries. They really help make such a lush and festive centerpiece for our Christmas tabletop. I love fresh real plants, branches and flowers. The natural smell always make me feel we are hosting a party in an outdoor wonderland.
2. Vintage plates. It is quite special to use some vintage plates on Christmas day to show off our special dishes. I always appreciate the details on those vintage pieces.
3. We’ve got some special drinks in stunning crystal cocktail glasses for this year’s Christmas–keto egg-nog
4. Last but not the least, we had some of these cuteClassic Bluecrystal bear miniatures and they truly light up our Christmas dining-table.

I guarantee these bar cart ideas will warm up your heart immediately and make you just want to jump start your own bar cart stying immediately.
So what do you think? After going through all of the above beautiful pictures, I bet we all feel that bart carts are must-haves for our home right?

As you can see here , by just adding some holiday greenery, sparkling unique wine glasses and our whiskey collections, the bar cart suddenly become our holiday decor super star. So here are 4 ways to style your bar carts for this holiday season:
Focus on essentials. All you need are a few quality spirits to make the classics, a good set of cocktail tools(lime squeezer, muddler, strainer, and mixing tin are key), and some interesting glassware. Plus, buying less means you can splurge on higher-quality spirits. If you have a surplus of wine or liquor, choose the best-looking bottles and store the rest in the pantry.
Use pretty accessories for a layer of Interest and playfuness. Now that you’ve got your basics, it’s time for a shot of style. Color, pattern, and texture all come into play when styling your bar car. Vintage bar accessories such as cocktail stirs or picks are also a charming addition.
Go green and red palette with a touch of crystals, brass and silvers.
Pair with a stylish elegant chair or an art work to create that ultimate holiday vignette.
