Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend gearing up for Christmas! Last week I was thrilled to have my home for the holidays featured on Style Me Pretty Living.

This Christmas marks the first year where Drew and I could actually decorate our home for the holidays. In years priror, we were either in the process of building or traveling with family so it’s been really exciting to finally purchase our first Christmas tree!  I wanted to select ornaments and decor that had a classic and timeless Christmas feel so I can re-use it all for years to come. I love how it turned out and how it’s brought the most cozy and inviting feel to our home (I’m wishing I could leave it up all year long).

xo, Rach

  9. Glad you and Drew are now at a time and place that you can decorate for the holidays in your home. I had been living in Africa the past 3 years so i complete understand.

Rach Parcell

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
