Stylish Super Bowl Party Tips

Our guest blogger, Dawn Smith, Creative Director of Not Just A Mommy, has put together these fun party tips for us on creating a Stylish Super Bowl Party!  However you celebrate, we hope you enjoy the big game -- and Go Hawks! 

Here in Seattle, we are still in shock and awe over our Seahawks' amazing victory in last Sunday's game, putting us on the road to the Super Bowl! If you are rooting your team onto victory by hosting a Super Bowl party, here are a few stylish tips that are fabulous yet won't offend your menfolk...mix and match to your heart's content.

Lighten your workload and feed your game day crowd by inviting a few friends to bring their favorite chili recipes. Set up a chili bar complete with all the fixings and serve in Rosanna's aptly named Comfort Food Bowls.

Don't just set out bags of snacks and cans of nuts; class up the joint and serve your finger foods in Luxe Moderne trophy bowls.

Cover your table or counter with black butcher paper or chalkboard paper, and write in chalk to mimic a playboard.

Toy trophies are easily found at party supply store; turn them into fabulous place cards and food labels with Glitter Guide.

Frog Prince Paperie's very clever DIY football centerpiece repurposes many items you may already have around your home.

As if your guests weren't engaged enough during game-watching, download free bingo cards from Better Homes & Gardens to keep them on their toes.

Make and fill Super Bowl cascarones from Camille Styles with confetti, raffle tickets or game-day fortunes.

Simple Ideas for Updating Your Living Spaces in 2015

After months of celebrating back to back holidays from Halloween to New Year's, doing loads of shopping, visiting family and friends, and entertaining, it's nice to get back to the routine of everyday life.  The new year always seems to bring a need for change, especially around the home.

But, if you don't have the time or resources for major overhauls like purchasing new furniture, small changes can create a big impact.

Here are some easy ways  to update your living spaces in 2015 with Rosanna collection pieces.

Kitchen counter tops and shelves are valuable real estate; our Stockholm canisters are an excellent accent to a contemporary kitchen or a fabulous way to breathe new life into your kitchen.

For a more rustic feel, our American Orchard collection, with authentic produce crate labels on porcelain, can create striking art for kitchen or pantry walls.

Instead of tossing personal items into bathroom drawers, display them in Alhambra canisters. With its Moorish architectural flourishes combined with 60's revival style, they will provides lovely pops of color in your space. 

The Belle Boudoir Volnay tray on a bedside table or bathroom counter makes a fabulous catch all tray for jewelry, loose change and more.

It's the small, one-of-a-kind details that make your visiting guests feel extra special  We love how Waiting On Martha put together a gorgeous welcome tray with a 'house' cocktail featuring our Luxe Moderne double old fashioned glasses.  Have your own version waiting in your guest room for the VIP treatment.

Create a playful statement in your child's bedroom or play area with Vintage Postcard trays.

How do you plan on updating your living spaces? Leave us a comment, we would love to hear about it.

2014 is coming to a close and it's time for reflection and excitement for the future. If you are hosting a New Year's Eve soiree, our La Cité and Luxe Moderne collections are the perfect mix of old-fashioned cocktail glamour and modern sophistication that celebrates the passing of the old year and celebrating the new.

Welcome guests with a fabulous beverage like a pomegranate-champagne punch served in La Cité double old fashioned glasses and easy hors d'oeuvres presented in nesting catchall trays.  Cheese, fruit and crackers are a timeless classic; step up your game with these helpful tips.

These beautiful napkins are a simple DIY from Freutcake and make a lovely addition to your cocktail area.

Perfect for setting nuts, olives and candies throughout your party space, our Luxe Moderne small trophy bowl's elegant and playful shape works with any decor style. Our Hexagonal Tray's sleek look is the perfect compliment...I fell in love with it and just ordered my own.

Sugar Hero's Disco Truffles are a fabulous touch of sparkly for your New Year's Eve spread and are so easy to make.

Invite guests to share their resolutions, well-wishes and goals for the New Year on a simple butcher paper backdrop via the Hostess Blog.
