Our Fall Bucket List

We put together a list of our favorite fall activities to get you excited for the new season! Fall in Charleston can sometimes mean 90 degree weather but we hate to miss out on the festivities!

Apple Picking

Going to an apple orchard is a fan classic, and one that we continue to look forward to.

Wanna make this fun fall activity even more memorable? Use those delicious apples to make some caramel and candy apples! Check out this fun tutorial from Aww.Sam on how to jazz up your candy apples!


Make a pie!

Use those freshly picked apples from the orchard to make an apple pie, or you could even use those pumpkins from the patch to make a pumpkin pie! With endless types of pies, chose one and perfect it!

Pumpkin Painting

Paint some cute faces on some pumpkins! this is a great way to add some extra charm to your pumpkins and they are great addition to your fall decor!

Go hiking

Fall really enhances the beauty of nature, so what better way to watch those color changing leaves than to be right in the middle of a forest! Visit our favorite forest, Francis Marion National Forest!

Watch a scary movie with your girl gang

What better way to bring on the spooky season then watching a scary movie? Our favorite is Hocus Pocus! Use a projector on a white sheet and set up a mini theater right in your backyard with blankets and pillows. Don’t forget the popcorn!

Make some cute treats

From orange pumpkin shaped rice crispy treats to mummy or ghost cake pops, you can create any type of treats and spice it up with a fall theme!

Have a Bonfire

light up a hot fire as the sun goes down in your backyard! Gather your friends and share spooky stories around the fire! Top it off with some s’mores!

Update your fall wardrobe

Enjoy this sweater weather with some new outfits more fit for the chilly weather. Add in some neutral and dark color tones. Check out our fall accessories post on The Tiny Tassel for some fall inso!

Meet Audrey!
IMG_3103.jpg

Were so excited to welcome Audrey as our new fall intern! We asked Audrey a couple of questions so read below to get to know her!

Q. Where is your hometown?

A. “I was originally born in Connecticut, but I ended up moving to Massachusetts during middle school and now I have lived there ever since!”

Q. What school are you currently enrolled in, and what’s your major?

A. “Right now, i’m attending the College of Charleston and I love it so far! I’m majoring in marketing and minoring in hospitality and tourism management with the hopes to work in corporate fashion, event planning, or maybe running my own business”

Q. What are three fun facts about yourself?

A. “Well for starters, I definitely love being involved in fashion whether its going to runway shows, shopping, or sharing outfit ideas. My next fun fact is that I have a dog named Kingsley. He is a Bichon Frise (A.K.A a small white fluffy dog), and I love him so much!” My third fun fact is that I’m really into health and fitness. I love researching different workouts to new smoothies recipes I can make at home!”

Q. What is your favorite coffee shop in Charleston?

  1. Although there are so many amazing coffee shops in Charleston I have yet to discover, you can never go wrong with a classic Starbucks drink! But, I am really interested in trying Blondies Bagels & Cafe.

And finally, here are Audreys three favorite pieces from TTT!

I Scream, You Scream!

What’s better than ice cream on a summer day?

Our rainbow striped Ashley dress + ice cream with sprinkles on top!

Summer stripes are paired perfectly with strawberry ice cream, heart sunnies, and an ice cream mani of course! Our friend Angela of Lu.nu.la Nail Lab always creates the cutest nail art & when she suggested a little ice cream cone and sprinkles, I just couldn’t say no!

My mom joined us for Ice Cream Sunday!   Must try: sweet tea ice cream, strawberry ice cream, & my mom loved their coffee, it was the perfect mid-day pick me up! We love stopping into local shops like Off Track and can’t wait to go back again soon!

School is out and the air is HOT! Those are signs of summer if you ask us! We know, we know, technically speaking, we’ve got a little time before summer officially begins. But until then, we are kicking off our unofficial start to summer with Ice Cream & Tassels !!! What could be better?

Ice Cream and Tassels are our go-to for many occasions, name a better duo :), so what better to celebrate the unofficial start to summer!

Memorial Day in Charleston

We are spending ours taking bike rides South of Broad and wearing our favorite festive tassels!

Memorial Day in Charleston is a kickoff holiday for the summer season! There are countless fun things to do on a holiday in Charleston, here are a few that we suggest:

  1. Take the water taxi ! It is a really cool ride and showcases Charleston well, you might even spot a dolphin or two!

  2. Go shopping on King Street ! You will come across some of the best holiday sales just in time to start summer!

  3. Walk the Cooper River Bridge ! Here in Charleston, the heat is in full swing, but the walk up the Cooper River Bridge is very beautiful and the breeze at the top makes it all that much better!

A look into my office with Society Social!

I first fell in love with Society Social when I was in college. The second I laid eyes on their gorgeous furniture I knew that they were meant to be. I’m a lover of classic prints, fun colors & practical workspaces so over the years I’ve slowly compiled pieces from Society Social and beyond to create the perfect workspace for me.

Transitional tassels: from winter to spring!

Cooler temps put me in the mood for a cozy sweater, lots of hot tea, & tassels of course! Our Bennett tassel earring is the perfect pop of tortoise to bring in a little color to any outfit all year ‘round.

Gingham, girly & most of all comfortable!

Retailer Spotlight: An interview with Escapada!

As many of y’all know, we wholesale our tassels to many shops across the U.S. & Escapada Living store was one of my favorite retailers in Mount Pleasant. I held many tassel workshops and had the privilege of sharing my tassels with them over the last few years. When they reached out to learn a little more about The Tiny Tassel, I was thrilled to share!

1. Tell us about a day in the life of you! What's your usual routine?

Wake up by 8am & walk Gizmo, our rescue pup! My favorite morning pit- stop has been to pick up an Electric Mermaid bowl from Playa bowls, then head to work for the day at  our shop Cannonborough Collective! My day can be filled with everything from making tons of tiny tassels to blowing up lots of balloons! After work I head to Barre South for a good work out before heading home to cook a fun dinner! I try to stop working at 8pm but that usually doesn’t happen, it can be hard balancing it all! Some nights I end the day with a face mask from Motherland Essentials and then get a good nights rest so that I can do it all over again the next day!

2. We can't get enough of your tassel earrings - they're the perfect finishing touch for any outfit. Can you tell us a little more about how your business got started?

Thank you! My sister gave me a pair of hot pink tassels for my birthday & I started making tassel earrings for fun a little over three years ago! Before I knew it months a couple of passed and I’d created an Etsy page and began adding tassel bracelets & necklaces! After about a year of working in retail management & running my side hustle at full speed, I was so blessed to be able to take on The Tiny Tassel full time & the rest is history! I know this will sound cheesy but I’ve loved being able to wake up everyday and do exactly what i’m meant to be doing right now!


3. Where do you find inspiration for your jewelry designs?

Charleston offers me so much inspiration everyday! The Tiny Tassel is known for being colorful and happy so our cheery town lends so many fun ideas! 


4. How would you describe your personal style?

Colorful, preppy & comfy! 


5. Can you tell us how you styled the Daphne Dress?

This was the perfect dress for exploring Atlanta! I paired it with a couple of our Barre tassel bracelets for a fun arm party, Cooper lucite tassel earrings, comfy tennis mesh shoes from Tretorn & of course my classic L.L. Bean tote- adorned with pins from some of my favorite places! I loved the Daphne dress because it was an easy, no fuss look & not to mention super comfy to hang out in all day!

6. Let's say you have a friend visiting Charleston for one day, and you want to show her the highlights. Where would you take her?

First stop, breakfast at Blue Rose Cafe — second, we’d explore the Cannonborough/ Elliotborough neighborhood to stop into our shop Cannonborough Collective & all of our favorite local shops in the neighborhood. Stop for a sweet treat from Sugar Bakeshop then head to pineapple fountain (of course) for a few fun photos! After living here for almost nine years, I still love taking strolls around town and just getting lost in the beautiful neighborhoods downtown. 


7. What place(s) are on your travel bucket list? Why?

Currently can’t wait to visit LA & Palm Beach! Can you tell I still have summer on my mind? Would love to travel to Tokyo again soon to visit family and take them all tassels!! Paris is my number one on the list right now, can’t wait to visit one day & eat all the cheese!

Summer Stripes

Summer is officially here! Our current obsession with all white outfits leaves room for the perfect pop of color AKA our tassel earrings. I paired our limited edition, 4th of July, Devereaux tassel earrings with my favorite white jeans from J.Crew and a simple tee. This look is so easy and it let's you have fun while picking your accessories!

 If you're wondering what the deal is with this fun bike...it's an exclusive J.Crew X Tribe bike. I won it (!!!!) for participating in the #nationalstripesday contest on Instagram! Thank you J.Crew!! Biking is my favorite way to get around Charleston so it was the perfect surprise. Enjoy these fun photos from Aneris Photography

Spring is in the air!

The flowers are blooming and we're so excited that spring is finally here! I recently got to spend a fun filled afternoon with Sirena of Aneris Photography & Alyshia of Addie J. Beauty. We started the day off at the Harbinger cafe, one of our favorites. It's located on upper King St. and has so many yummy treats plus the perfect outdoor patio. After the Harbinger, we took to South of Broad to stroll the streets and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. Flower boxes, horse drawn carriages & the perfect pastel homes made us ooh and ahh in every direction that we turned. Here's a few shots from that afternoon, they're definitely a reminder to get outside and explore our little city more!

A Sweet Gathering!

Donuts, galentines & tassels, oh my! 

Last weekend I gathered a few girls and some sweet treats for the yummiest Galentine's gathering!

IMG_8360C.jpg

Fresh florals, cocktails & custom cookies made this day even sweeter! Frampton's of Charleston have the most gorgeous blooms & their arrangements are just stunning! I'm still daydreaming about these beauties! 

The most gorgeous custom cookies blew me away from Cookies by Cat of Columbia, they were just too pretty to eat! Her Valentine's design were so detailed and delicious too.

For a sweet sip, we mixed up a raspberry love potion with Jackson Morgan Cream! We mixed up their Salted Caramel Southern Cream along with a raspberry liqueur & garnish it with fresh strawberries & blackberries. It was the perfect pink drink! 

How cute are these minis from Jackson Morgan?! They made for the perfect valentine's for each girl and we added a tassel, of course! Paired with these classic monogrammed cocktail napkins from South of Libbie, it's a gift that each girl could treasure in their home forever. 

Sugared, chocolate dipped & glazed are just a few of the delicious flavors from Glazed Gourmet. Their raspberry donut is by far my favorite!  

Every gathering needs fun balloons and sweet treats! Our treat table was sure to give you a sugar fix! From waffles dusted with powdered sugar to homemade biscuits from Callie's Hot Little Biscuits, I wish this could be my brunch setup every Saturday!

Missed some of your gals? These simple but sweet Galentine's cards from Anson Paper Co. are sure to but a smile on their face! Snail mail is the best mail!

I wish Galentine's Day was more than once a year, we shouldn't need a holiday to get the girls together for a day filled with sweet treats!
