My Love for Garlands...

September 16, 2013

Fall is my favorite season. This weekend it finally cooled down enough for it to really start to feel like fall and it was wonderful! I took full advantage of the crisp morning to decorate my mantel....and I LOVE how it turned out!

If you follow me on Instagram you know I love me a cute garland. And this "give thanks" and leaf & pumpkin garlands from Aidie's Hideaway are no exception. I'm totally head over heals for them!

Aren't they perfect?

I've been a fan of Andrea's (the designer behind Aidie's Hideaway) garlands for a while now. I ordere this bow-tie garland for Hudson's birthday party and it was the perfect touch to our drink station.

And I'm excited to bust out this beautiful flower garland that I bought a few months ago sometime this spring!

Andrea is so sweet and great to work with. If you follow her on instagram (shopaidieshideaway) you can view and order all of her amazing designs. And trust me, it's so hard to not buy them all! I decided a long time ago that I only want to feature items on this blog that I truly love and stand behind. And I can happily say that Aidie's Hideaway garlands really are amazing and beautiful. They are  made by someone who really loves what she does...and loves her customers too! Andrea sent me this 4th of July star garland a few months ago just because she knew I loved it. How awesome is that? I love it so much that after the holiday was over I put it up in Hudson's room.

So, needless to say I was thrilled when Andrea offered to giveaway a $25 shop credit to Aidie's Hideaway for one lucky reader!

Meet Andrea below and keep reading for your chance to win!

 Hello there! I am Andrea, the creative mind and hands behind Aidie's Hideaway. Aidie's Hideaway got started shortly after the birth of my now five year old daughter. My love for crafting quickly turned into a production of all things pretty for my little girl, especially hair pretties. Before I knew it I found myself selling my handmade hair accessories at a holiday boutique.

My handmade line has changed and grown over the years but one of my favorite things to make is still a bow. Something about cutting, pressing and stitching that cute bow shape together makes me happy. 

Currently, the most popular item and what I spend the most time creating are garlands. In the same way that the hair accessories and Aidie's Hideaway as a whole were born out of my own desire to create, so were the addition of garlands.

 I had made myself a garland of hand cut felt holly leaves and red and burgundy felt berries a few Christmases ago and was encouraged by friends to add garlands to my shop. I tried it and they were an instant hit. I love coming up with new designs for garlands. I think they are such a fun touch to any party or room decor.

For me, creating is the perfect outlet for me and an expression of who I am. The addition of people liking what I create and wanting to purchase it to have in their home or worn on their child, just makes it even sweeter for me.
