Life at the Counter with Serena & Lily

My baby brother (we’re actually only 19 months apart) finally found THE ONE, and their upcoming wedding is just weeks away. T-minus 7 weeks to be precise. I’ll finally have a sister and I’m so freaking excited about it!

As the seasoned old lady of the group (also known as the Matron of Honor), I have had the pleasure of planning the bachelorette party and it’s surreal to think that the festivities will commence in Miami tomorrow! (It’s been about 10 years and two kids since the last bachelorette I attended, but fingers crossed I still know how to have fun!)


In preparation, I had my soon-to-be-sister-in-law, Lindsey, over yesterday evening so I could share some details on what to pack…a girl’s gotta be prepared after all!


We went over all the outfits needed while we enjoyed a glass of rose in our new comfy Serena & Lily Balboa Counter Stools. I mean, hello rattan beauties!


The quality of these chairs is apparent from looks alone, but then you sit down and quickly realize “oh wow, these aren’t just a pretty face, they are actually really comfortable!” And major bonus points on these babies coming with removable cushion covers and in Perennials performance fabric!

Is it just me or does this chair scream “I’m a grown up now!”

From entertaining with family and friends for special occasions, to sitting at the counter with the boys in the morning for breakfast, or helping with homework in the afternoons, making memories around the kitchen counter is one of life’s simple pleasures.

Whether you’re drawn to the classic with a twist Sunwashed Riviera Counter Stool, the enviable Carlson White Counter Stool, unique Oceanview Counter Stool, quirky Avalon Swivel Rattan Counter Stool, or simpltimeless Riviera Natural Backless Stool, Serena & Lily has the best selection of family-friendly, beautifully-designed kitchen counter stools that everyone can enjoy!

A big thanks to Serena & Lily for partnering with me on this post! As always all opinions are my own.
