Certain things, they just don’t go out of style. Classic blue and white décor has stood the test of time, since Chinese porcelain used for decoration made its debut in the 14th century. (That’s 700 years, y’all). We’re giving tips on blue and white décor and how to add them into your home.
In the bedroom, powder room, living area—we’ve been spending lots of time swooning over blue and white wallpaper samples lately. Wallpaper makes such a statement and is a classy and elegant way to add color to your space. Sidenote: Our founder, Heloise, recently wallpapered her bathroom in classic blue and white, and we are low-key obsessed. Check out our Instagram for recent photos.

- Ginger Jars
If you’ve spent any time on our site, you may have noticed our love for ginger jars. On bookshelves, on the floor—can’t stop, won’t stop. Group these eye-catching beauties on the floor or table or use them to as accent pieces. I think our favorite way is as a floral vase. Try some blue or white hydrangeas. *Swoon*.

There’s nothing quite like a great blue and white rug. Find the perfect one, then keep the rest of the décor simple and classy. We love a blue and white rug paired with a gold coffee table. Can it get much more gorgeous?

We love the way a lamp can add a bold pop of color. Try bold blues, classy whites, or blue and white patterns to bring style to your bedside or side table.

We like our Bloody Marys to be a meal so for us, the more fixin's the better. Right!? We're talking bacon, cheese, okra, stuffed olives, cheese straws, pickles, hot peppers, celery and old bay dusted shrimp to name a few of our faves. Also, the spicier the better in our book!

We're so thrilled to have Emma Newell of Defined Designs Blog here sharing her favorite Mintwood Home party-ready products to help ring in 2016!
Nothing is more fun than push-pop confetti, however, we do recommend making this an outdoor activity...we speak from experience. We also love Emma's idea to use the quartz rock box for collecting each guests best moment from 2015 and reading them allowed after midnight.
We think that every NYE party cocktail should be served in a gold rimmed glass! Coasters are also a must-have when entertaining, scatter them around before guests arrive and hope for the best.
You already know that anything black and white and gold is a must-have in our book. Serve up a classy charcuterie board and a fruit salad for your guests.
Summer's in full swing and on sunny days there's nothing better than an outdoor oasis to escape, unwind and entertain. With that in mind, we wanted to share some inspiration and tips just in time to plan some weekend projects...or pour a glass of rosé and relax out back.
Happy Monday! In honor of everyone's favorite day of the week...we're each sharing our five favorite blogs.

Some you've heard of, some maybe not but we're pretty sure they'll brighten and inspire your Monday just like they've done for us over the years.
Now, can someone please pass the coffee!?

It's getting to be the time of year when we're just itching to set a pretty table and invite the girls over for delicious food & drink!

Take a look at some fun (and simple) ways we used some of our favorite spring linens!
