You’ve probably noticed these little design elements lately. So how do you decorate with poufs? And really, how can they be used in your home? Here’s a few ideas: (1) as a comfy ottoman to prop your feet, (2) as a sitting spot at the foot of your bed, (3) as fun seats in the kids’ playroom or (4) as a decorative accessory underneath the console table. Get creative, and try these textured and colorful poufs in your space.

SHERRIE’S SURPRISE SOIREE
Our Senior Financial Analyst, Sherrie, hosted a surprise birthday party complete with delicious food, a stylish set up and an entertaining game.
I wanted to do something special for my sister-in-law’s birthday this year to show her how much we all love her.
I went for a rustic winter theme and wanted it to be really casual and inviting. I set up a wine and cheese station on the Aldridge Extendable Dining Table with everything from pinot grigio to merlot and asiago to blueberry goat cheese (so good!). I used chalkboard place cards as labels, too.
There were two brands of each wine – expensive vs. less expensive. I covered the labels with brown paper and had guests mingle around to taste and then vote for their favorites. It was funny because we tallied the votes and the less expensive wine won.
It took some planning, but getting her there was the toughest part! She walked in an hour late, saw all of us and started crying. She had no idea! It was a lot of fun.
