30 DAYS OF COOKIES

It’s the season of festivity and food. I don’t cook but I have been known to bake on rare occasion. Very rare occasion. Even though I don’t spend a lot of time in the kitchen I am always on the lookout for recipes, particularly for cookies and dessert, “just in case” I ever need to whip up a few batches of sweet treats. If you plan on gifting cookies to friends and family this holiday season or plan to attend any cookie exchange parties, Williams-Sonoma has you covered. This year they collaborated with 30 bakers and bloggers to come up with 30 holiday cookie recipes and all of the recipes are currently shared on their website. Try one or try them all. There’s nothing better than baking on a cold day with the oven to warm the house and having the smell of freshly baked cookies permeating through the air. Print the recipes even if you don’t plan to bake this holiday season because they can easily be adapted for anytime of the year. And if you need any baking supplies, be sure to take advantage of the free shipping they are currently offering. And don’t forget, you can also save money by signing up for The Key (read this post). Don’t these look yummy?

Sharing is Caring: Save with The Key Rewards Program

Last week I received an email introducing a new rewards program. I’ll be honest…when I first read about it, I thought to myself, “great…another program to keep track of” since it seems like there are reward programs for so many things these days. But this new program really sets itself apart. If you are here then you share my passion for design and home decor and the new reward program called “The Key” can help you save on purchases for the home and office. By signing up, you are entitled to earn 3% back in certificate “rewards dollars” for purchases made at Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Teen, Pottery Barn Kids, William Sonoma Home, William Sonoma, Mark & Graham, and West Elm. This is actually a limited time program and here is how it works: register your email and shop at these stores (in-person or online) during the months of September and October 2017 and in November you will receive your reward certificate in November. It’s that simple! Check out the website for more details and to sign up. the key rewards program pottery barn william sonoma west elm reviving charmThis post wasn’t really intended to be a shopping guide but it’s never too early to get in the spirit of entertaining for the upcoming holiday season before the good stuff is gone. To help get a jump start on things, I thought I’d share a select number of items from some of the stores participating in The Key rewards program.

I have always loved the idea of having monogrammed dinnerware. The Poinsettia china dinner plates, salad plates, and serving platter from Mark and Graham are a wonderful way to dress up a table during the holidays. mark and graham custom monogrammed poinsettia dinner plate large platter Reviving Charm

I think the Vintage Etched Glassware collection from Williams Sonoma is so pretty and can instantly add a hint of vintage styling to your home. Mr. B and I have been talking about buying new glassware and this might do the trick.

These custom embroidered dinner napkins from Mark and Graham can actually be used all year long. I am partial to the script font but I love that a variety of other font styles are also offered.mark and graham custom emboidered linen napkins_RevivingCharm

Add a dash of color and a touch of warmth by placing a cashmere throw on the back of a sofa, chair, or to place in a guest bedroom. I’ve chosen to show red, but a variety of colors and patterns are available through William Sonoma Home. They can also be monogrammed, which would make for a lovely gift. cashmere throw william sonoma Reviving Charm

The pineapple is the universal symbol representing hospitality. The Pineapple Soap and Towel gift set is perfect for gift giving or to display in your own home. 

Slice and serve your favorite cheeses with this set of 3 marble and copper cheese knives from West Elm.
