See all New Year’s here!

The PCP is going to work with his daddy today, much to his delight!  I’ll be taking down Christmas – at least it comes down quicker than it goes up…

Flattered for the feature at No Minimalist Here!


  1. Amanda,

    Maybe you've said before, but I looked back & didn't see if... would you mind sharing where you got the clock faces? Thank you!

  2. Christi - They were from AC Moore last year in the scrapbook section. Hope that helps!

  3. Very elegant blog. Your home is gorgeous. Love this post. Thanks for sharing.
    I would love to see you on my blog:)
    Hope you had a dazzling Christmas.

  4. So fun! I am going to make those champagne cupcakes for New Year's Eve! Being a Southern girl myself, I really loved the collards in the silver cup, that is too funny. Your menu sounds divine and perfect for New Year's Day. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Just beautiful!!!
    The clock faces are such a pretty touch for New Years!

  6. Does is normally take a while for the jello to set? I made the champagne Jell-O shots last night and it still has not completely set. Just wondering if I messed something up. Thanks!

  7. Hi Jen - I haven't made them since last year but they definitely set over night. Eek.. Don't know what to tell you!

  8. Amanda, Happy New Year to you and your family. Your table is beautiful and I love the centerpiece. Your tablescape is being featured at this weeks Open House party. xx, Sherry

  9. Lovely blog your home looks beautiful.Thanks for sharing.
    Blessings from Canada

  10. Collards center piece? Now that's creative. LOVE it! Great tablescape too.
