you guys know i have a soft spot for events. and creating. so, when stephanie {the owner of gatehouse no. 1 in orem, utah} asked me to be a part of her open house i was thrilled! plus, i was able to teach a fall decorating class and plan a make & take with one of my all-time favorite ladies – courtney snowden! double thrill!

if you came to the open house, thank you so very very very much – it was such a fun evening packed with festive cheer. gatehouse no. 1 is a really impressive home furnishings store, and if you are coming to utah, plan a visit!

(sela requested that we wear matching outfits for the night. she loves events like this, and even more loves being my little assistant. in lieu of matching outfits, we attempted to coordinate our outfits by both wearing track-style pants!)
