Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2017
0

IMG_4155

I cannot believe Mother’s Day is next weekend! I’m headed back home to Cleveland. This will be the first time in years I’ll be able to spend Mother’s Day with my mom. I know we’ll spend it doing just what we love – watching movies on the couch or shopping at Beachwood Mall, of course.

Today I’m rounding up a few different gift ideas that are sure to say “I have the chic-est Mom, ever!” A lot of my favorite gifts this year are from Tuckernuck. From accessories like sun hats and earrings to home decor like barware or cocktail napkins, Tuckernuck has so many cute gift ideas you can shop this year. I personally love this blue and white striped bath robe. Plus it’s under $100 dollars. This sun hat would be great for the beach & this red and white wine tote bag reminds me of L.L. Bean’s classic tote bags.

Last but not least, you should definitely check out Aerin Lauder‘s new line for Williams-Sonoma. If you love blue and white as much as me, this line has so many great gift options. My mom (and ok, me) need these ikat napkins.

My Favorite End Tables From Horchow
0

If you have been following me for a while, you know I am a HUGE fan of Horchow. In case you missed it, take a peek at a few of my favorite items from Horchow and my 5 tips for choosing the perfect sofa.

As I mentioned in my 5 tips post, I ended up going with Horchow for my couch because they exactly had what I was looking for when it came to my sofa. I wanted a white, slip covered linen sofa that was 40″ deep. After much research, Horchow ended up having the perfect sofa for me and I have been obsessed with it ever since it was delivered to my apartment back in December!

It’s taken me much longer than anticipated to finish my living room because I’m still waiting on my Wisteria coffee table. Similar to my couch, I did a ton of research when it came to finding the perfect coffee table so I decided to stick it out and wait until it was back in stock vs. picking something out that I don’t absolutely love. I’m pretty much using this rule of thumb when it comes to all of my furniture. Next up are my end tables. There aren’t many end tables I love at first glance. However, Horchow has several that have caught my eye. Insert this Louie Round table and this gold end table. I’m a huge proponent of mixing the styles of end tables as well as the material. The Louie Round Table has that Hampton’s beach vibe that you guys know I love while the gold end table provides a polished finish.

Keep reading for my entire round up of end tables from Horchow! Where are your end tables from? Xo. Lauren

Entertaining At Home With Rueda Verdejo Wine
2

Lauren-0006-Edit

Ever since moving into my one bedroom apartment on the Upper East Side, I have been entertaining constantly! I love having my girlfriends over for wine and treats. This past weekend I teamed up with a Spanish wine region, Rueda,  to host a fun wine-filled afternoon. Rueda is known for their refreshing Verdejo white wine and I have to admit, it’s delicious! If you like Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio, you will love Verdejo from Rueda. It’s vibrant and complex, yet effortlessly drinkable! In addition to having a few bottles of Oro de Castilla and Shaya Verdejo wine on hand, I also picked up some tea sandwiches, scones and sweet treats from Alice’s Tea Cup, an Upper East Side must-try. It definitely made for a sweet afternoon!

To help freshen up my space, I picked up a few of my favorite blooms to decorate my dining nook and bar cart. In case you didn’t know, cherry blossoms are insanely pretty this time of year. You can typically find cherry blossom branches for around $12 dollars a branch from your local florist! And in true lauren-nelson.com fashion, I also had white hydrangeas on hand to spruce up my bar cart.

With each new season, I like to switch up my dishes and dinnerware. I absolutely loved these pink floral dishes and these pink glasses from Villeroy & Boch. They matched perfectly with the cherry blossoms and looked oh-so-cute under the tea sandwiches.

If you’re planning to entertain at home any time soon, or just want a refreshing glass of white wine, make sure to look for Rueda in your wine store or order it directly from wine.com with the code “RUEDA” for a 10% discount! Cheers!! Xo. Lauren
