Dressing Your Family for the Holiday Card Photo

A classic fall tone cape. A pair of leather riding boots. A felt hat. A beautiful little girl. Bring all these things together, incorporate a photog and the results are breathtaking. Repeat the same process except with the older male sibling and you create a fashion shoot fit for the J. CREW CREWCUTS catalog. The cards we send to our loved ones over the holidays should convey a simple message of caring and interest. Nothing more. Nothing less. To display your family well in a festive card is a special skill and the families below are masters of the craft.

First impressions are often expressed and interpreted through our wardrobe. These first impressions say: "I'm stylish. I'm confident. I'm photogenic. I'm personable."

I present to you Little A., Mr. C., Little E. and the Z. boys. The bottom line: These kids and their mothers have great style.

Meet Little A and Mr. C

Sweet Piper Lane

I'm a big fan of supporting small businesses. There is something about a product made by hand that makes it extra special. While I enjoy lovely stationery from Target, TJ Maxx, Home Goods and Marshalls, I love all of the beautiful sets you can find on Etsy.

Ultimately, personalized stationary is one of my favorite gifts to give. There is nothing like pretty paper, especially when it arrives in the mail! My sweet blogger friend, Sara, from Social Sara, opened an Etsy shop - Sweet Piper Lane - this year and has a variety of gorgeous sets. Her choice in envelope liners are to do die for...

I love my cards from Sweet Piper Lane, especially the one with metallic polka dot liner!


Nate Berkus for Target

Nate Berkus never disappoints. Each and every time I head to Target, I find myself browsing the end caps to see if any of the Nate Berkus items have been marked down.

I was a fan of Nate since his first appearance on Oprah. I followed along when he made the move to FOX to host his own show. I would eagerly await the 5 pm hour, so I could tune in for quick tips on home design. I was devastated when his show was cancelled.

Nate - Please come back to TV. You are missed!

Until his return, I will have to get my fix from his Target line. Here's a sneak peak to his newest items...

1 - Stoneware Relic Urn Vases

2 - Brass Frame

3 - Stoneware Drip Vases

4 - Basketweave Comforter Set

5 - Hexagonal Wood Tray
