DLAG: Rory's Birthday Parties

 I love this dollhouse and the fact that it is never actually used as a plaything anymore, but for decoration. Here it is in a bedroom, where it works great with the decor, but later Lorelei puts it in her living room, where it works just as well. A great way to display a meaningful piece of childhood, although personally I would put it in a girl's bedroom.
This white wrought-iron shelf is perfect for storing plants on the porch and that is exactly how I would use it.

DLAG: Kill Me Now

I love this pale sage green wicker patio set. And it goes perfectly in the corner of a wrap-around porch, as seen here. I also like that Lorelei uses a lantern on top of it.

Decorate Like a Gilmore: Pilot

New segment for the blog is starting today: Decorate Like a Gilmore. I will be sharing the best home and business decor ideas inspired by the show. There won't be a post from every episode because the decor doesn't change every episode but there will still be plenty of ideas!

So let's get started.

This is one of my all-time favorite decor ideas from the show: the classic Luke's mug shelf. This could be an easy DIY. Just nail together a couple of two by fours, paint a cute color, and hang on the wall to display mugs or some other collection.

Another iconic piece is the Gilmore mailbox. Very rustic with that small town charm. For this DIY, I would take a regular mailbox, stencil on your last name, then distress it a bit.

This is one of the few elements that you can't DIY, but I love Lorelei's living room. From the built in shelves in the corner to the brick fireplace with that mantle. Very quaint!

Bon Voyage

Rory gets a job following the presidential campaign of one of the candidates running for president. While she prepares to leave in a mere three days, Lorelai adjusts to the idea that she may not see her daughter again for weeks, even months. Meanwhile, Luke is still trying to sort out how he really feels about Lorelai after they locked eyes at the karaoke jam. To see Rory off before she leaves for her new job, the entire town puts on a farewell party, despite the presence of rain.

Unto the Breach

Lorelai and Christopher are reunited at a party Emily and Richard throw in honor of Rory's graduation. Logan surprises everyone at the party by proposing to Rory, but she is too shocked to give him an answer. Then, on graduation day, Rory and Paris receive their diplomas, and Rory finally gives Logan her answer. Meanwhile, Lorelai is embarrassed about her recent karaoke serenade to Luke, and Luke is hurt when he overhears her saying it didn't mean anything.

Lorelai? Lorelai?

Rory stresses out as graduation approaches, which leads to a day of eating and shopping with Lorelai. Later, with Luke in tow, the Gilmores hit the bars, where Lorelai takes the stage for a karaoke number obviously intended for Luke. Logan returns from a business trip and looks to discuss his and Rory's future with Lorelai.

It's Just Like Riding a Bike

Lorelai heads to Luke's for her first breakfast there in a while -- overall, it's an awkward experience for them both. Later on, when Lorelai's Jeep breaks down, Luke helps her shop for a new car. They argue and fight, which Lorelai thinks is ultimately a good sign. Paris considers breaking up with Doyle so she can be free of influences when it comes to picking which law or medical school she will attend. Rory receives a letter that will certainly influence her future plans.
