Festive December





Hey, tribe! The holidays are upon us and we’re feeling festive! We are so pumped for December because we have a month FULL of exciting activities, posts, contests, and a gathering lined up for YOU, our readers!


Starting on December 1st, we will be sharing our hearts as we work through Naptime Diaries’ “Make Room” Advent study. Every morning, we will be posting a recap of the daily devotional on our Instagram (@thewildrevival) We would LOVE for you to follow along + join in! You can buy your copy HERE for $22. We pre-ordered ours and it came in the mail this week and WOW!…it is so nice! Make sure to use #TWRAdvent when you share your advent study, photos + thoughts. Join us as we make room for Jesus this Christmas season.

Festive December


We will be sharing our holiday gift guide during the first week of December. We spent a morning at Target finding great gift ideas, and the best part is — they’re all under $30! 


Contests are so fun, right?!  Be sure to follow The Wild Revival’s social media pages to get in on the goodies we will be giving away in December! 


Our beauty contributor, Allison, will be sharing holiday makeup tutorials to help get you ready for holiday parties and get-togethers. We encourage you to try out her looks and make them your own using #TWRHolidayGlam. Doing that just might enter you into a contest to win some free makeup! 😉 but we can’t give away all of our secrets just yet!


The most exciting announcement of all is… The Wild Revival’s Holiday Gathering! After a month off from hosting, we’re so ready to bring you all together for a little bit of creativity + connection. We’re looking forward to gathering together with our favorite ladies in a cozy, laid-back atmosphere full of festive touches. We’ll be making DIY Christmas ornaments while
enjoying live music, complete with a hot chocolate bar + sweets. 


You can get your tickets HERE. A portion of each ticket sold will be given to our local Salvation Army Angel Tree program to help provide Christmas presents to
children in need this season. 
Once you register + pay, we’ll send you an e-mail with details and directions to our event location.


This is going to be a lot of fun! Bring yourself (and a friend!) and join us for our holiday gathering! We want to get more women involved in our gatherings. 

Autumn Evening | Fall Dinner Party

When we started The Wild Revival, we had this vision of holding gatherings. Hosting an Autumn Evening has been on our heart for awhile. Our purpose behind it all is to bring together a community of women who can honestly share in life experiences with one another, have a little fun, and forget about the stresses of life for a while. We said we wanted to create a space for women to feel comfortable, accepted, and worthy of good things. We knew we wanted the table to be the focal point of these gatherings. And now, after hosting 3 of them in 8 weeks, we can truly say that magic is happening, and it’s happening around the table.
 

 

Our love and passion for life around the table didn’t start with The Wild Revival; it started with our families and the many traditions we had growing up. Sunday dinners, birthday parties, impromptu get-togethers…they all took place around someone’s table. Tables that likely had scratches, dents, imperfections, mismatched chairs and dishes, and were always overflowing with amazing recipes passed down from older generations. What we remember most when we recall our upbringings though, isn’t necessarily the food. It was the people, the conversations, the hugs, the peptalks, and the roaring sounds of laughter. No matter what was going on in our lives or in our families’ lives, we all put EVERYTHING on pause to be together. That sense of unity we felt when gathered around a table was our safe zone. And we are striving to recreate it in our adult lives… and we want you to be a part of it.

 

Something happens when you invite someone into a space where all they have to do is be present. A place they can just show up to and sit down; where they can stop running around like crazy, bouncing from thing to thing, and just be. We live in a society that glorifies busy, better, faster. But sitting at that table, eating and taking in the simplicity of life in that very moment is both nourishment for the body + the soul, and it revives something in us that feels lost at times. The table, we feel, is when walls tend to come down, the masks come off, and the conversations start to flow. And when the people at the table don’t all necessarily know each other, we’re dedicated to finding that common ground among a group women. 

 

Earlier this month, we held a private dinner party for a small group of our girlfriends. This night is one that we would like to relive over and over. It was a great evening filled with women we love. This night made us think about the stories we are all writing and telling with our lives. We are women who are chasing + building dreams, women who are busy, struggling, and loving on others through it all. Seeing it all come together was kinda magical. But was it the food that made it magical? The outfits we had on? The table setting? Yes and no to all of those things on some level. But what really made it so special was the people we had there, laughing, and telling stories as the sun went down and the cool fall breeze crept in. Those things make moments like this so much more magical than all of the perfectly planned out details ever could. 
 

 

*** And now for our big news! . . .

 
In November, we will be releasing our very FIRST eBook, entitled “Hosting with Heart.”  It will be a curated guide to life around the table, and will include recipes, tips + stories of how we intentionally host our guests with a lot of heart + soul. We hope you will download it, print it out, and use it during the holiday season to create an atmosphere of connection around your tables. We can’t wait for you to see it!

Behind the Scenes | Flower Crown Event Prep

 Our Saturday was filled with the all the things we enjoy most. We started the day off at a local antique shop
where we were on the hunt for cups + plates that would go well with our
whimsy, boho style for the upcoming |Flower Crowns + Food| gathering.  

We loved so many things at the shop, but left with nothing
that morning for this particular event. (I’m sure we’ll be back!) 
Next stop was A.C. Moore to pick up the last of the supplies for our flower crowns.  We found these great letters on sale while shopping!
So excited to dress these up… possibly using this
((tutorial)), but you will have to
stay tuned for the finished product! ; )

Can we take a second to appreciate Marrissa’s OOTD? This kimono received compliments at every stop during our outing. You can never go wrong with Forever 21!

RUGS.FOR.DAYS… What a find at Ollies!
We will be using these rugs at the gathering around our table along
with some neutrals. We had the aisle floor covered in them; it
was so hard to only pick a few! They were such a great purchase for only $8.00
and we will be using them post-event in our office space.

We stopped to grab mexican food for a quick lunch, and then got
back to work: DIYing + working on a mock table setup for the gathering.
Amanda was working on the last step of our table: applying Annie Sloan wax over the chalk paint that we used. 

 

Prepping for this event has been a lot of fun. We still have to purchase our blooms for the flower crowns and buy the food. Other than that, we’re ready to go! 


We can’t wait to see it all come together on Saturday. We’ve dreamed of doing this for such a long time. What we’re looking forward to the most is stepping back and watching you build relationships + enrich your life in the space we have created for youIt’s scary to put yourself out there…trust us, we know from experience. Meeting new people in a new setting or sharing a dream with a world of
strangers– it can be somewhat difficult and uncomfortable; but at the same time, it’s so life-giving when you finally do. We hope the low-key vibe we’re creating makes you feel at ease and ready to have some fun!

 

You were not meant to
walk this path alone and we’re really looking forward to walking alongside with you. We need people in our lives who help us come to love ourselves more. People matter. People doing life with other people matter. 



Please register today and/or message us to arrange a small, private flower crown event. How fun would that be for a bridal shower or baby shower? 


….Hey girl! Did you miss our #BTS on Instagram? Well, head over there to see some more photos from our day.
