Ampersand for Command // Trend: Sugar Plum

Next up for our How to Holiday looks for Command: Sugar Plum!!

Pop the champagne! Sugar Plum embraces the fizzy, sparkly, glitz of the holiday season! Jewel tones have played a major role in the past, but 2015 embraces the spectrum of lighter hues. Pastels are a surprising and refreshing twist on a holiday palette! Think blush, lavender and sky blue. Pastel pink is a big player and looks rich mixed with metallics. And, as we think of metallics for this look, keep in mind the whole range of matte gold, glittery bronze, and smooth rose gold!

To bring this look to life, we envisioned this Mixed Media Garland draped across the wall! We created and gathered all of the pieces but realized, hanging it might get really tricky. And, it turns out, without our new favorite Command products, it definitely would've been a nightmare. This look could've caused too many holes in the wall than we'd like to imagine. We're SO thankful we were partnering with Command on this!! And here is where Command™ Brand products are genius. We have loved Command™ products forever, but didn’t realize they had a whole collection of products designed specifically for throwing a party! There are a range of hooks specifically for hanging balloons or honeycombs from the walls and ceiling and others designed for hanging banners. We put a new twist on the awesome Command™ Party Banner Anchors and used them in layers to create this look. You guys, seriously, we were giddy! We sounded like a Command commercial the way were were going on and on about how awesome they were!

Anyway, hop over to Command for all the details about the Sugar Plum trend, including how we made it come to life with this Mixed Media Garland, head to Command.com!

It's really SO hard for us to keep a secret. We'd like to think we are good at it, but it's really complete torture and we've been sitting on this little secret for a while now. So we are pretty much wanting to shout from the rooftops that we have a brand new line of calendars and planners!!!!!!! Can you hear us squealing???!!!!

We know it's ironic that if you look at our workspaces, you might think we are a bit of a mess (that's putting it nicely). But when it comes down to it, both of us are absolutely OBSESSED with our paper planners and calendars and keep them psychotically organized. We really don't go anywhere without a coffee in one hand and our planners tucked under our arms like a blankie. We're very particular about the type of paper, the layout, the month vs week pages...really all of it. We have been using planners for a long time and have learned exactly what works and if it works for both of us, then we know it's a win. So this new partnership with the super-awesome company, Blue Sky, is such an organization-lover's dream!

Today we are sharing a little peek into the first round of calendars and planners sold at Staples! We partnered closely with the brilliant minds at Blue Sky to design the perfect planners that incorporated everything you need in a calendar but also infused a little hit of fun pattern and color (we couldn't help ourselves)! There are various sizes of Weekly/Monthly planners, a Desk Pad and a Wall Calendar and they are all for the July 2015 - June 2016 Academic Year which means they are PERFECT to get started with very soon! We sure hope you guys love them!

Check out our first collection right at Staples HERE!

We will have a small group of these calendars and planners on our own etsy shop in the next week or two, but you'll have to move fast!

We're taking over The Land of Nod today!!

There are a few companies out there that we have dreamed of partnering with. The type of companies that think the same way we do. The kind that create high quality products that are well designed, functional, fun and always forward-thinking! The Land of Nod is one of those companies! We have been brainstorming, sketching, collaborating and dreaming of the perfect pieces for our first collection designed exclusively for The Land of Nod and TODAY IS THE DAY for our BIG REVEAL!!!! We have a fun little group of rugs, quilts, sheets, pillows and other kids room decor that is all launching on the Nod site as we speak!!!! (Have we mentioned this is literally a dream come true?!!) So today, we are taking over the Nod instagram to share some behind the scenes peeks into our design process and finish the day by sharing the new products! We cannot wait for you to see it all and we sure hope you like it!!! Make sure to follow along on instagram at @thelandofnod! We promise it's gonna be fun!!! #AmpersandforNod
