5 Southern-Belle-Approved Things to Do On Your Birthday in Nashville!

5 Southern Belle Approved Birthday Perks

Last week I spent one day running around Nashville hitting up 5 favorite spots for my annual FREE day! If you sign up for enough birthday perks you can easily spend an entire day without pulling out your wallet! There are dozens of birthday freebies and discounts in Nashville to enjoy but today I’ve rounded up my top 5 freebies Southern girls will love! Start with a morning of treating yourself with the 5 stops below, then head to your favorite local bar with live music (we are in Music city after all)! Depending on the bar, if they know it’s your birthday, you might score a free drink too! That’s just an little extra perk of living in a place known for its hospitality!

DIY Mother's Day Story Book Gift with American Greetings

Mother’s Day has always been one of the most joyous holidays to celebrate in my family! My brothers and I are beyond lucky to have a Mother who has been unconditionally there for us through every stage of our lives, and every year we love having a day to make it all about her! At different stages in our story of life one or more of us hasn’t always been nearby to celebrate with her, but we always pause for a moment on that day to contact her so she knows we are thinking of her. As I’ve grown older I’ve enjoyed learning about the person she was before she became a Mother. Being a Mother to 4 children is only a small part of who she is as a person, and this Mother’s Day I wanted to create something that reflects the story of her life through my eyes in a memorable way!

One of my favorite requests to receive from friends and family is my help finding a gift for someone special.

These photos are of a ‘mock’ basket of ideas that include gifts I have personally received that would be perfect to give for Easter! (Of course, I’m keeping all of these items, but you get the idea!)

Cocoa Couture Easter Tablescape

Cocoa Couture Easter Table Scape

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of entertaining a group of incredible women for a Progressive Brunch. A progressive meal or “Safari Supper” is made of successive courses prepared and eaten at the residence of different hostesses. This involves consumption of one course at each location. Each of us ladies prepared a part of traditional brunch and Ubered from each of our houses to the next, after each course, enjoying the company and styling of each person’s take on a brunch tablescape!

My house was the first stop and I hosted the Mimosa and fruit course! I wanted to share my tablescape with you because I have to show you how easy it is to design a party table without spending a ton of money on theme décor. Every element of the design are DIYs I’ve blogged about previously with a few drugstore Easter isle props thrown in!
