Every holiday is a reason to celebrate, and when you live in Savannah – St. Patrick’s Day is more than just any holiday. It’s a way to keep traditions driving us forward year after year. Every memory gets sweeter and every tradition becomes more true with each passing March 17th.

This year we introduced a brand new line of personalized St. Patrick’s Day items for the shoppe, and for your home! In order to be the greenest and most festive on any Isle, the final day to order personalized St. Patrick’s Day items is tomorrow! February 18th is the date that you can make your final decisions of everything you need to be the best hostess this side of the Atlantic.

Coming up right here in The Shoppe on Abercorn this week, we are bringing back our hostess hour after a brief holiday hiatus! One of the most fun nights of every month, it’s high time we talk about people we adore – our guests. Being a hostess isn’t just fun, it’s an honor to spend time with those who mean something to you in your own home. When we create a guest room, the purpose is to make sure your visitors know that this area is theirs and they can escape to it at any time they please, and they’ll certainly want to when it’s fit for a king and queen!

Join us this Thursday at 5:00pm to learn how Emily does it. Hint: you’ll love it, and you’ll want to go right home and fancy up your guest room. Now then, we’ll see you soon.

It’s 2017, and we couldn’t possibly think this year was any more gorgeous. How could it not be? Last year was our biggest and best year ever here at The Shoppe. The Emily McCarthy brand reached new heights and expanded to new countries. Our team grew from just three, to eight! It’s impossible to put into words how incredible it feels to know that we have another year in store, that can be just as big… if not bigger.

What has stayed the same, however, is our commitment to creating content and irreverent design. There will never be a pattern or item that you can get at our shoppe that hasn’t been carefully curated and born just for you and yours. We want your home to feel branded, your life to feel elegant, and your world to be enhanced because we are in it. We live in a world of sparkle and possibility.


We look back at 2016 and see COLOR! Vibrant color in every way. From our beautiful collaboration with Style Me Pretty Living and our favorite boozy ice cream social, especially. (We still cannot get enough of the flavored Cathead vodkas when making signature cocktails.) The addition of our Kate Spade pieces set this apart as one of our favorite, and tastiest, shoots to date. You definitely want to re-visit the post and have as much fun as we did! Click, click!


With our beautiful space, we decided we needed to have our best girls over as often as possible. So, we started a hostess hour to share our best tips and tricks. From personal style to decor to how to create the perfect bar cart – we can’t wait to bring you even more fabulous ideas. (Re-live the fun of our very first Hostess Hour by a click here! Emily hosted a “Build-a-Bar” workshoppe.)


Paige Minear made a guest appearance to show off her signature style for August’s Hostess hour. She is fashionable, bold, self aware, and fearless. a perfect example of who we cater to here. Full recap by clicking here.


With the shoppe always aiming to please our busy clientele, we introduced our curbside service. Though we promise there is always plenty of parking, we can easily run your orders out to you when in a rush. Perfect for when you have to rush to a bridal shower, or back home to host your own fete! We won’t let you down. Click here to learn even more about our curbside service.



Savannah Weddings magazine was the perfect place for us to unveil a brand new pattern – our capri tile. Not only did we have a ball creating this gorgeous Bridesmaid luncheon, we were honored to be featured. Capri tile can be purchased to bring a touch of opulence to any room in your home. From pillows, to trays, to tea towels – we love to see a home outfitted and elevated in this pattern. To see all the gorgeous details of this shoot, read the full post here. 



Woven Font | Emily McCarthy

Life is better with your friends, so we teamed up with Moon & Lola to create a brand new set of products for you. This collaboration went hand in hand with the introduction of the newest font that Emily created – Woven. We were able to display this beautiful font on bracelets, key chains, necklaces, cake toppers, and even Christmas tree ornaments just to name a few. Classic with a modern flare – our favorite way to innovate! Click here to re-live the fun in our post! 


We upped the ante with custom decks of playing cards. We also upped your gift giving game with this one. Click right here to learn more about our custom card decks!


Emily had some fun in Charleston with her favorite blogging girls at The Southern C conference. The Southern C has been such a valued part of our brand and culture here. Click here to see their website and revel in their content.

Joy and Grand Opening (8 of 13)TEXT

We made it our specific business to help you Invite Joy into your life and the lives of others. With every purchase we remind you to put joy at the top of your list – for yourself, and everyone you meet. A portion of all proceeds from our shoppe goes right back to the community to a different charity that we choose yearly. For our inaugural year, we chose The Next Generation at the Children’s Hospital. Visit our “Invite Joy” page to read more!


Emily was able to join Engage 2016 at Sea Island. The wedding industry is a passion of hers, and it’s a passion here at the Shoppe. How can we make your wedding day more elegant and special than you ever dreamed? How can we elevate your personal style to be laced into each and every detail right down to the invitations? We are constantly learning so continue being the best of the best when it comes to weddings.

fallpatternsFall gave us another chance to unveil fresh new patterns hand designed by Emily! We are absolutely in love with the colors that we got to surround ourselves with all fall.


And look here, a dream come true for Emily! We introduced the Holiday Paper Shoppe. Now anyone can inject their holiday cards with a higher level of elegance than ever before. Emily spent countless hours designing and perfecting these customizable holiday cards for you to send to all of your loved ones. High quality paper and gorgeous layouts mean that your cards are easily the most fun and chic to give and receive any holiday season! We hope you’re already excited for your 2017 holiday cards.

The gang was all present to cut the ribbon and clink glasses!

Perhaps the most special moment of all – we opened our brick and mortar store. The emerald green doors weren’t just the way to enter into the shoppe – they were a beacon of light showing us what hard work can achieve. There is no dream too big. That, we believe whole heartedly. Cheers to 2017.

Let it be known far and wide that you are never too old for ice cream! We will declare it a fact, at that. One of the fun parts about getting older is being able to enjoy a cocktail, don’t you agree? Well, two of the most wonderful things have come together in our latest collaboration! A boozy ice cream social. Cheers, indeed!


Flavored vodkas can be a lot of fun, if you know what we mean! They can take a cocktail and turn it into a dessert. The best of both (naughty indulgence) worlds, right?


(Blackberry Patch Strawberry Syrup *Available at Publix + Cathead Honeysuckle Vodka + Chocolate Espresso Cookies from Grey Ghost Bakery)

Cathead vodka, from the first legal distillery in Mississippi, is Southern charm to the core. Three flavors to choose from, each carefully crafted and completely legendary. We decided to see what we could do with each of the three flavors: original, honeysuckle, and pecan!

(Blackberry Patch Blueberry syrup *Available at Publix! + Cathead original vodka + Lemon Sugar cookies from Grey Ghost Bakery)

As usual, it’s all in the flare you add to it. The truth is, cookies and ice cream will taste great no matter what you add to them – but the styling is what will take this ice cream social to the next level.


Part of that very flare would be the sprinkles. Who knew adults could have so much fun with colored sugar? These were visually pleasing and really added to the colorful look overall!

Monogrammed Martini GlassesAt the end of every day, having fun is the most important aspect of any special event. Emily added a little extra fun by utilizing her favorite drink of all – prosecco! Adding the Blackberry Patch syrup took it up a notch, and putting in a dollop of Halo Ice Cream was the true finishing touch!

Sunny days at the beach are truly among the best days on record. Sometimes, however, getting together the perfect beach bag and accessories for the day’s outing can seem like a never ending task. You’ll need refreshments, of course, and the perfect bag.


Our stemless acrylic tumblers don’t just bring the party, they practically are the party! Double walled and ready to hold onto your favorite beverage (juice for the kiddos, maybe some wine for you?) they’re durable, and they’ll add a touch of class.


Choose your favorite color combinations and fro the little kids to the big kids, everyone will love their new sippy cup!


Finally, take a look at this sneak peek of Emily McCarthy for Hayden Reis! This beach bag is so chic, so durable, and just what you need to tote your necessities in.

Make them both yours for this beach season! It’s going to be a hot one.

A true celebration was had this weekend: Lillian’s Flamingo Fete!

LilliansFlamingoFete (4 of 202)

The littlest shoppe girl at Emily McCarthy Studio celebrated her 1st birthday in true coastal fashion. Planning her birthday party and deciding which special elements to use from the shoppe was a true joy! As you may recall, it was just over a year ago that I created the flamingo bamboo pattern specifically for Lillian’s nursery. Little did I know this special ode to my sweet daughter would be a shoppe favorite, selling in upholstery, coasters, folded note cards, wallpaper… and so much more!

It’s all about details, especially first a first birthday party! We stayed true to the tropical, Southern flare we always love. The frosted flamingo party cups were just the beginning of the flamingo fete fun. You can see that there were notes of the classic Emily McCarthy favorite emerald green tied in, as well.

Sweet Lillian received a very special gift reminiscent of her great grandmother, the first Lillian. Grandma Lillian made a baby grand piano for me when I was a young girl, and it was (and is) one of the most special gifts I’ve ever received. I wanted to do something special and memorable for my own Lillian.

The joy in her face as she played with her newest instrument was just as real as the joy she experienced when she got to take her brand new wheels for a spin! Decked out in her own custom monogram, she can now travel the world (or the driveway) along side her big brother until her heart’s content!

Aside from the gifts… what about the food? We can admit, often the decor is more a nod toward Mom and Dad’s tastes (for a first birthday!) but the food has to be all about the guest of honor! We chose easy foods that Lillian loves, and made sure the presentation was fun and accessible for little hands.

While it’s hard to believe an entire year has passed, it’s hard to imagine life before this perfect Red-Head joined our family. Making this day special for her was an honor and a blessing, just as having her in our lives is to us. Looking forward to more special, styled events for the youngest McCarthy and the entire family.

You know the age old saying, “Never show up empty handed.” We take this notion very seriously. When someone has created an event and invited you into their home, the smallest gesture is so truly appreciated! Being a hostess, even when it’s something you enjoy, can be a lot of work and stress. To have a guest give a special token can really make the day even more special.

At the Emily McCarthy studio, we have always had hostess gifts on our minds. Now with the new store, we even have a perfectly placed gift bar! We’re so excited about this and have grabbed some of our absolute favorites to share with you. Do you have any parties coming up that require attendance? You’ll be best in show with any of these in hand!




The items we chose to show you are a great range, high to low. Whether you choose the slate cheese server or something as simple as personalized wooden swizzle sticks, the extra touch is something that will help the party feel so much more special! We also love the versatility of the personalized foil coasters. These can be picked up as is in the Shoppe, or specially ordered online in a variety of colors to best suit the home! Same with the cocktail napkins. Choose the white and gold at the gift bar, or opt for something a little more colorful by selecting your own options from the website (also available to order in store from the shoppe hostess)! For a gift that will literally be used over and over again, we can’t recommend enough our low ball glasses (right now ONLY available in store!) or the stemless wine glasses. You can get the hostess one set of each, and easily be the favorite guest. It’s your choice, and it’s sure to be loved!

Show us how you use our products in entertaining!
