Best Of 2019: Home, Entertaining, and Recipes

by | Entertaining, Interior Inspiration, My Home, Tablescapes

Here is the final look back at the Best of 2019: Home, Entertaining and Recipes.  This is some of my favorite content to create for Alicia Wood Lifestyle.   From the blog analytics, you love these posts, too, which is great because there is a lot to come in 2020!

I want to thank you once again for making 2019 a wonderful year for me and Alicia Wood Lifestyle.  You really embraced the rebranding and new AWL website and for that I am grateful.  It is because of YOU that I get to have this fun career sharing my inspiration for all things style, home, beauty and travel.    I posted all the Best of 2019: Style, Beauty and Lifestyle, Best of 2019: Travel and Top 50 Reader Favorites from 2019 last week.

I have several new home projects currently in the works that I’ll share the progress on Instagram before it makes a full blog post here.  I also have a few rooms in my home I’ve photographed but not shared!  Stay tuned for all of these. I’d love to know what you want to see on AWL so please leave m some of your ideas below in the comments!

Just like in the Style and Travels posts, there are items from years past that continue to bring traffic and serve as a reference for you like our Teen Cabana, Gluten Free Peach Cobbler, Bright White Breakfast Room with Pops of Hot Pink and Turquoise, Our Master Bedroom, Master Closet Organization, Our Family Room, Outdoor Living Reveal, Mexican Cauliflower Rice Bowl to name a few.  The Tablescapes section is a BIG favorite and that makes me so happy!

Collages for the Best of Home, Entertaining and Recipes are below.  To see the original posts, simply click the links under the collage photo.  I have also included the top home items you loved in a boutique below.
