Pretty Ordinary gives you a sneak peek into Lily & Val behind the scenes! On Lily & Val Living!

For the Pretty Ordinary series, we’re documenting snapshots of our week that may not be the prettiest or the most interesting, but we enjoyed each instance and want to remember them! These are the behind-the-scenes, in-between moments – the small peeks that would otherwise be forgotten. Join us as we use this series to scrapbook the unedited, memorable happenings at Lily & Val and what is inspiring our team!

Holiday photo shoot, The Holiday movie fun tradition, olive branches to create beautiful centerpiece for party1. “Behind-the-scenes of a special mini photo shoot we held in the office this week! I’ll be able to share what it was for very soon!” Valerie

2. “Mak and I started a new tradition this year. We always watch The Holiday, but this year we made “Christmas fettuccine” to eat while we watched. We also popped a bottle of bubbly! It was so much fun.” –Valerie

5. “I’m not a huge fan of the white stuff (I know, I know…I live in Southwestern PA, I should be used to it or quite complaining!), but I will admit the view from my balcony of the horse farm covered in snow is pretty magical.” -Maureen

6. “Lily & Val Marketing Director, Alivia, got these adorable felt ornament crafts for my 4-year-old daughter to do.  My daughter was so excited for our Christmas craft and to hang the finished products on the tree!” -Maureen
