It's a Celebration!

Hello, readers! Today is a VERY exciting day here at The Finer Things. Why, you ask? Today we celebrate…

1,000th Post Image

To start the celebration in honor of the 1,000th post on The Finer Things, let me give you a little background on the blog:

The Finer Things began in October of 2007 under the care of Kati. You can read the very first post {here}. Kati quickly made The Finer Things a place where readers could go to learn about stationery trends, style trends, entertaining, etiquette and so much more. Kati’s amazing style and appreciation for the arts was evident in her fantastic posts. Being the first author, Kati established The Finer Things in the blogging community and made many lasting relationships in the industry.

In October of 2008, Kati passed the blogging torch to Jess. You can read about Jess {here}. As a new mama with impeccable and classic style, Jess brought a new voice to The Finer Things. Her sweet posts really showed off her love for entertaining and fine living. Jess continued to develop The Finer Things in the blogging community, building even more relationships as time went on. When it was time to welcome a second snuggly baby into the world, Jess knew it was time to pass on The Finer Things to another author.

That brings us to The Finer Things' third and current author… me! I was introduced in April of 2010 and have been bringing you daily posts for just under a year now. If you’d like, get to know me {here}. I was beyond excited to begin designing inspiration boards and writing for The Finer Things, but knew I had a lot to live up to after all the wonderful posts by Kati and Jess. I quickly found my niche, and have loved blogging and communicating with all of you since!

As we celebrate this day with our 1,000th post, I’d like to take a look back in time at the most viewed posts by each of the three authors of The Finer Things:

Kati’s most viewed post is entitled “Pink and Black Party Inspiration”. This post is also the most viewed post of all time on The Finer Things! You can read the post {here}. Below is the inspiration board for the post:
