Show Recap: Atlanta Gift Show

We're veterans at this whole "trade show" thing now. But that's not to say we don't love it just like we did the first time (or that it's any less tiring...)

This year though, one of our favorite parts was getting to share the space with some wonderful companies, and exploring some of the other incredible brands on our floor and others. I'm pumped to share with you some of what we found... because you're seriously missing out if you don't hop on board with these makers.


All-natural beauty goods are all the rage right now, and I'm here to tell you that Green + Lovely is absolutely nailing it. Her responsibly-made beauty and skincare products are my new favorite thing. I got the detox facial grains wash and a clay mask. Both are to die for. My top pick, though, is the bee herbal cream. It works unbelievably well and it is not greasy (which is a BIG deal!) I have definitely found my new skincare line!

  • Other brands in our space:

  • Jackson Morgan Creamed Whiskey for happy hour (salted caramel flavor) Everyone loved it, and was looking up the closest place to grab their own bottles.

  • White's Elixirs Moscow Mule mix is always so fun to serve during happy hour, too. Customers love his mixers, and we do too!

Pie Provisions:

Pie Provisions is a new company that one of my maker friends and I saw in the "Gourmet" section of the show. Their branding is fabulous and their product could not be cuter! They put everything you need to cook a gourmet pie into the cutest package. This is my new favorite gift idea!

Bogg Bag:

I had heard about Bogg Bags before, but finally got to checked them out at the market. The company shared a booth with one of our dear friends and collaborators, Beer Greetings! These are totally fantastic and I will for sure be getting one ASAP.


Heirloomed's newest "Simple Blessings" line is one I have fallen in love with and I cannot wait to get my kids in a new apron! 

Really, the best part about this July Market was the launch of our new sister company, Heartward. My business partner and friend Heather and I worked so hard to get things up and running, and it was so fun to see how much everyone loved it. I cannot wait to start shipping all the orders out. 

Thanks to all who stopped by our booth... we seriously appreciate each and every one of you.

Thanksgiving in Our Household ♥

Giving thanks is something we're sure to do year-round in our house, but it's easy to get caught up in the day-to-day and forget to stop and say a simple "thank you." That's why Thanksgiving rocks.

Everyone is home and together, and we dedicate a whole 24 hours solely to saying "thank you" and appreciating what we have, instead of thinking about what we don't. We also eat. A lot. (Duh). 

This year was big for us because we spent our first Thanksgiving here in Nashville, and I cooked the whole dinner... which I'd never done before. Matt was on turkey duty and did an awesome job, and of course our little ones helped. 

There are a few things we just had to make sure to have on our table, like bourbon & vanilla bean cocktails made with White's Elixirs and sweet and sour whiskey drinks. We decorated our table with the heirloomed "Blessings" napkins and runner, with my favorite vintage tablecloth beneath it that I've had for years and years. We used my favorite set of mismatched serving pieces and plates, and tied our napkins with bakers twine and fresh rosemary. I just love rosemary, so we used it for the centerpieces, too.

It was so fun to teach the kids new traditions, like putting notes about all the things we're thankful for into a mason jar and sealing to open next year. We also taught them how to make a wish on the wishbone - that was just too cute. 


We loved having quality time to give thanks and love each other. From your friends at Breathless Paper Co., we hope you had just as beautiful of a Thanksgiving as we did.
