My little boy is ONE! How in the world did a single year go so fast, yet so slow all at the same time? To be honest I am not sure I remember the first few months, but have plenty of pictures and videos to help!

One thing I knew I wanted was a professional to capture for little guy on his first birthday, and I could not have been more trilled when I received the images from Courtney Leigh Photography. Courtney not only captured our sweet little family, but Barrett’s little personality and all of his little furry friends.  

It’s safe to say we are obsessed with the neutral color palette of the new Hearth and Hand Collection by Magnolia at Target! It is the perfect setting for Friendsgiving, or Thanksgiving, and allows you to add pieces to your collection you will be able to use for celebrations to come!

For the center of the table we simply walked out into the backyard and snipped a few magnolia branches. The great thing about Texas is these trees are everywhere. Simply add them to a few vases down the center of the table and you are set!

Remember those dishes we spoke about? The black and white is such a classic combination and can we talk about this matte black flatware! Perfect for everyday, holidays and celebrations.

A simple knotted napkin can elevate any place setting, while still allowing for full flatware. The napkin doesn’t get in the way, stays crisp and is a fun twist on a classic napkin fold.

What do you think? Would you like to pull up a chair at this dinner table? We think the simple setting, neutral colors and comfy dining room create the perfect atmosphere for beautiful food and wonderful conversation!
