  1. Peacock Mirror. Hang this stunning mirror over a fireplace to turn your home’s hearth into a focal point. Mix and match metal candlesticks and vases on your mantel to enhance the affect.
  2. Chantal Table Lamp. The tiny mirrored tiles on this elegant table lamp will bounce light around any room you place it in. Try putting one on your nightstand for a playful nighttime glow.
  3. Dumont Mirrored Chandelier.  A stripe of mirrored tile softens the strong lines of this circular chandelier.  Try hanging it in a darkly painted room for a little extra glam when the lights turn on.
  4. Willow Nesting Tables. Mirror-topped tables with bronze legs give this sophisticated style a slightly rustic undertone.  Place a table lamp on top to light up a room instantly.
  5. Park Mirrored Tower Dresser. This tower dresser can fit into the tightest spaces and brighten up the darkest corners of your house. Try sneaking it into a hallway for some unexpected shine.
  6. Marnie Mirrored Bedside Table. Whether your bedroom style is classic or modern, feminine or eclectic, these mirrored bedside tables can fit right in with the right accessories.
  7. Etched Mirror Frame. Not ready to fully embrace the trend with mirrored furniture? Start small with a few mirror frames. The etched design gives the stylish material a slightly understated feel.
  8. Antique Mirror Medium Jewelry Box.  This elegant, geometric jewelry box has an antiqued surface treatment that makes the glass look aged and slightly smokey. Place this in a tabletop vignette you want to draw attention to.
  9. Bevel Mirror. We like to stack these square mirrors on top of each other or in grids. Light reflects off of the beveled edges, making your home feel bigger and brighter.

Forget the Tupperware: Wrap Up Your Thanksgiving Leftovers In Style

Entertaining, Holiday | | | Leave a comment

Thanksgiving leftovers are a blessing and a curse. Pumpkin pie and mashed potatoes sound great for breakfast the morning after, but come day four of a turkey sandwich lunch, and you’re probably singing a very different tune. Your best bet? Pass some of that deliciousness on to your guests before it goes to waste.

Instead of piling up plain’ ol plastic Tupperware with cold mashed potatoes, turn it into a post-feast take home treat that feels a little more special. These four bloggers came up with clever, DIY packaging that gets extra leftovers out of the house in a surprisingly stylish manner.

Printable Leftover Pie Labels by Striped Cat Studio for Studio DIY

1. Kelly Lanza of Studio DIY worked with Striped Cat Studio to design some adorable printables for guests to take home an extra slice (or two) of their favorite pie.

2. Jenny Steffens Hobick of Everyday Occasions stuck to the basics with a simple paper box topped with twine and an elegant label.

3.  The elli blog took it a step further and amped up their leftover kit with cute plastic cutlery, a patterned napkin and a to-go cup for coffee or hot cocoa on the drive home.

4. Want to keep your leftovers to yourself? Take a cue from The Garnish Blog, which put a cute (but firm!) warning on their leftover boxes.

How are you getting rid of your leftovers this year? Are you passing them on to friends? Or do you have a favorite recipe for Thanksgiving leftovers? Share your thoughts and ideas in the comments section below!
