Welcome to this week’s Wednesday Watch List, where I share the random things that captured my attention and stole my heart over the past week!
1 – My friend Tammy was just featured in the special Halloween edition of Better Homes & Gardens. Her Halloween inspired wedding shoot is beyond stunning (not usually a word you use with Halloween, right?). The photos are such great inspiration for more than just a wedding – a brunch, Halloween party, fall decor, and so much more!
2 – I came across this chunky knit throw recently in the Serena & Lily catalog and immediately knew I had to have one. Until I saw it was $598 (not a joke). I searched high and low and high again and for a regular throw size, the closest I can find runs at least $300, even on Etsy. Side note: you have to be careful on Etsy because many of the prices listed are for 20″ x 20″ which wouldn’t cover much. I found this version that’s just under $100, which is still a lot, but a lot closer to a real budget. I can tell in the photos (the one with the room) it’s definitely an overscale cable knit.Has any one found other alternatives? I also found this tutorial if any of you brave souls wants to attempt to make their own (supposedly it only takes four hours)!
3 – These birch votive candle holders are so pretty and perfect for fall and winter months! They add so much great texture to a space!
4 – It’s almost time for our annual adult Halloween party. This year’s theme is simply ‘the 80’s’. I haven’t finalized a plan yet, so I’m loving this round-up of 50 genius costume ideas for everyone from your pets to your kids to yourself. And if you’re new-ish around here, I’d be remiss if I didn’t share our couples costumes the past two years (2014 and 2015). Kurtis is starting to have way too much fun with his costume each year 😉 I found this ‘Can’t Touch This’ Cactus costume particularly clever. Qas MC Hammer the 80’s or 90’s? Either way, I think my friend Jill and I are going to be My Little Ponies.
5 – Tory Burch is having a killer sale and although most of the sandals I wanted for next year are out of stock in my giant size, I am still contemplating these rain boots (that look nothing like rain boots). They are still available in almost all sizes and are so cute!
