Ends In Style: The Year In Review

It's been a year of blogging, and what a year it's been! I think we've done a pretty good job, especially considering that we're only one! One year olds typically can't even talk yet, right? And here we are, typing away--practically prodigies! 

As we reflect over this past year and look forward to the future; planning our next steps as a photography/styling/blogging duo, we are taking the time to go back and enjoy our favorite posts from the past year. So here they are, our top five posts from year one of Ends In Style!

Last October, we put a different spin on Halloween entertaining and we think you'll love it! Click here to read the entire article.

These spaces by designer Jennifer Schoenberger are a wonderful example of livable, comfortable, and relaxing design. The use of patterns and colors throughout the connected spaces tie them together and make the home feel like one continuous, harmonious space but with a few distinct characteristics in each room to keep them interesting on their own as well.

For Mother's Day this year, we styled an intimate little backyard party with friends and parents. It was a beautiful day with beautiful company. We again used layering to create a more interesting table top with varied colors and textures and mixture of wood and metallic tones.
