Comments Off on Taking Out the Scarves and Decorating the Tree for…Easter? A Unique Easter Tablescape!

With weather in the high 80’s…you would think it’s time for us to put away our scarves…but not here at 3P.

The funny part, was that we realized the scarves...

Comments Off on Spring Has Sprung!

By now our readers know that we really enjoy the changing of our decor from season to season, and Spring is no different! A few 3P Basics we always keep in mind during the changing of the seasonal decor: 1. It’s okay to add to, or take away from your everyday pieces to keep it simple.  2. Classic and tasteful decor can be easily created, no need to over do it or feel overwhelmed. 3. A clean house is a clean canvas…clearing the clutter will give room for creativity! 4....
