Our Magnolia Trip

To say this post is overdue is pretty much the understatement of the year. Earlier in the year Erin and Jeri made a trip to Waco, TX to embrace all things Magnolia and maybe catch a glimpse of Chipper and JoJo. Unfortunately, Chipper and JoJo were out of town putting the finishing touches on their book. 

Waco is a wonderful town and the downtown is going through a major revitalization thanks impart to the Gaines family. 

Here are a few suggestions for a Waco Weekend:

1.  Go to Magnolia on a Thursday or Friday and get there right when the doors open. Saturday’s are a bit crazy. 

(This was Saturday 20 minutes after opening)

2. Arrive 30 minutes before the store opens to get a good parking spot in the lot directly behind the store. 

3. Start in the back of the store in the discount room and work forward. 

4. Stay for lunch! They have some amazing food trucks and a huge yard that you could bring your kiddos and let them play with all the games available. Or walk through  Joanna’s garden and pose for some photo ops.  Now the bakery is open so you can also grab a delicious Gaines’ family favorite dessert. 

5. Visit Harp Design Company. They have such a cute little shop that you can see where Clint and JoJo bring their talents to life. 

6. Find a local and ask about the other wonderful places in Waco. Wacians are some of the friendliest around and love telling you about the great BBQ, coffee, college, and hidden gems of Waco. 

Jeri’s favorite coffee was at Common Grounds. She still orders coffee from them and has it shipped to her house. 

Last but not least be prepared for the drive from Dallas. It’s almost 2 hours but worth every minute. Erin and Jeri stayed at the Hampton Inn in Waco. It was a wonderful stay with a great southern breakfast every morning and friendly staff. Ask for Corey and he will be glad to direct you to the best BBQ in town. 

Welcome to the World Nursery

Remember Erin’s travel themed baby shower? Well this theme didn’t stop there! Erin decoded the perfect travel baby nursery.

The large wall map took 4 people to hang! 


Kyle and Erin love to travel and want Bennett to be prepared when they start filling up his first passport.

These cute plane string art came from Target

This large map was bought off Amazon – it gets hung like wallpaper!

This was a neat find by Ally

TJ Maxx for the win!

Target – are we surprised?

Changing table complete with Emily Ley’s sweet baby book.

Some fun facts about B’s nursery:

•The dresser was Erin’s mom’s growing up.

•The crib was used with all of Jeri’s girls and is now living a new life in the Warner family.

•The map of OH is a tribute to Erin’s home state.

The Warners are adjusting well as a new family of 3! Below is a current picture of Bennett who is 2 months old now.

Travel Theme Baby Shower

We started our summer celebrating with one of our own {Erin & Kyle Warner} on their new little one. 

Ally and Jeri (with the help of Terri the soon-to-be grandma and mother-in-law of Erin) planned a travel themed shower to celebrate the littlest Warner arriving into the world. 

It was just a fun day helping Erin prepare for her little one. 

We’re happy to report Bennet Lincoln Warner made his arrival on

Vintage June Wedding

We started our wedding season off with a bang. 

R + T picked a gorgeous venue in Goshen, IN called Bread and Chocolate in the Old Bag Factory. 

We were happy to be the designers of this gorgeous wedding. The bride was a fellow Type A personality like us and just needed our help for florals and pull together her design vision.

We were able to one of our amazing preferred vendors Maeve Vintage Boutique and Rentals. The ladies of Maeve are always a joy to work with and our styling guru gals!  

No day is complete without a photographer to capture all the details that make your day unique. Bekah Taylor Photography was able to tell the beautiful story of R + T through her gift of photography. Click her link to see more of this lovely vintage, warehouse wedding. 

Thank R + T for letting us be apart of story!
