sweetworks candy display and giveaway!!!!

SweetWorks candy company sent me a box of Halloween / Fall treats to sample eat decorate with, and I wanted to share with you! I mean seriously, I'm 38 weeks this not every pregnant girl's dream? Come home to a BOX of candy on your doorstep. I think so. Gestational diabetes, what???

Here's a little about SweetWorks that is taken from their website....

I recruited the help of my mom - - who happens to have an unspoken love affair with Sixlets, that I knew nothing of. Seriously....had to watch her like a hawk. 

I knew I wanted to do a candy bar of some sort, especially with the variety of candy that they sent! Speaking of, be sure to scroll through this entire post because they are giving away candy to TEN lucky winners!!!

Here was the final product of our candy bar! It starts at my front door, and then continues on to the dining room table. I LOVE using not traditional centerpieces on my dining room table. And I especially love that the candy is fall AND Halloween themed. 

I change out the decor by my entry way for each holiday / season. So I thought it would be precious to do a candy bar since it's Halloween.

I also change out the centerpieces on my dining room table, so I carried the theme over to there as well!

Aren't the jack-o-lantern gumballs, so cute!?!? I left some of the orange ones out, just randomly laying around the candy jars. 

The candy used was:

introduction: makin' my home pretty

So my dear friend Emily just happens to be an amazing talent when it comes to interior design. She is now mommy to the cutest little boy, Thompson & has transitioned to being a SAHM. (She was a visual manager for Macy's).

Check out some of what she has done:

This is her son's nursery!
You can't see it, but there is this AMAZING white, fluffy rug. 
BittyBeau & I love just going into the room and sitting on the rug :)

The bedding was custom - I love her fabric choices, don't you?!?

This is her cousin's living room - she had wanted to add color....

I'd say Mission Accomplished!

Emily has also this amazing eye for restoration....look at these old pieces of furniture that she re-purposed!

She used a gray paint, and changed the knobs. One dresser is in the guest room, with the nightstand (not pictured)....and the other dresser is in her son's nursery. Did I mention that she bought these pieces at an estate sale for a STEAL of a price!? Just goes to show you what a good eye & a little elbow grease can do!

Needless to say I am one of her BIGGEST fans and I absolutely can not WAIT for her to make my home pretty! She came by yesterday to see the mess & boring-ness she has to tackle.

Expect several more posts on the progress including before & afters!

Do you have an eye for design?
How would you categorize your home decor?
