Revelry. Everywhere. Everyday. We believe in living a lifestyle of celebration. Taking up our stashes of confetti making today special. Baking cakes just because they taste good, and because that cake stand is too damn pretty to be sitting in the cabinet! Enjoying every moment. Because REVELRY is waiting for you everywhere, you only have to create it. Welcome to the party.

I love cakes + balloons + garland + easy party hacks & making every holiday more festive!

Our first book, Materially Crafted, is a passion project of mine – think of it as your crafting bible.

A Subtle Revelry the magazine was created in 2011, because I am crazy and thought this little blog, just couldn’t hold everything I wanted to share. I like to think of it as the art of merrymaking in editorial form!

I am Victoria, I am a mom of twins! I’m married to my best friend and college sweetheart. He’s also my editor and self-titled V.P. of Common Sense. I have a huge passion for finding Revelry in the everyday, because life can be hard and every day deserves a celebration.

This is how we teach our kids dinner party manners if you’d like to see.

With a background in interior design and event planning, I love combining my skills and passions to create this online space. With thousands of followers worldwide I’ve been styling, creating and sharing a lifestyle lived festively for over 5 years.

Heather Siri – Our team crafting direction and maker off all things pretty!
Hi! I’m married to my one and only love going on almost 8 years now. We have 2 little kiddos and 1 fur-baby that I get to hang out with all day long. I’ve been crafting from the moment my parents taught me to use scissors, leaving paper chain garlands all over the house. My need to create runs deep and to say I’m obsessed with making pretty things of all kinds is a bit of an understatement.

What’s your favorite flavor of cake: Any kind of pumpkin flavored cake (or chocolate!)

What’s your most likely way to spend a free 1/2 an hour: I love tv so probably catching up on a favorite show while enjoying a warm (or cold) beverage.

What’s your favorite balloon shape: Those giant balloons that look like they could lift adults off the ground if you put enough helium in them.

Ashlyn Lee – Team photographer
Hi, I’m Ashlyn! I am a college student and photographer here in Reno. I love having the opportunity to work with my fellow “creatives” to share some wild, super fun ideas with all of you on the blog!
What’s your favorite flavor of cake? Funfetti, always.
What’s your most likely way to spend a free 1/2 an hour? If I am free for half an hour, you will most likely find me cuddled up to my puppy editing some photos.
What’s your favorite balloon shape? My favorite balloon shape would have to be the big letter and number balloons- they are so cute for every occasion!
Jessica Harper – Editor
Hi! I’m Jessica, lover of Jesus, iced coffee, warm-scented candles, being outside, gym time, and creating fun dishes. My days are spent chasing after an energetic little boy, making Target runs, walking our tiny dog around the neighborhood, cleaning up messes, and catching up on Netflix over a good glass of wine with my husband.
 What’s your favorite flavor of cake? Chocolate, without a doubt. And if it’s got chocolate chips in it too, even better!
What’s your most likely way to spend a free 1/2 an hour? Getting lost in a book. I absolutely love to read.
What’s your favorite balloon shape? Heart-shaped balloons because they remind me of my childhood. My parents would always let me pick one out every time we went to Disney World.

Do you and your husband the same birthday?

Why I thought you’d never ask! What a normal question. Yes we do! Hence the always combined celebrations. We were actually born in the same hospital within 1/2 an hour of each other – nursery date! We met for the first time in college and married a week after graduation. How’s that for a soulmate! Also, we rented out a Starbucks for our wedding, the best idea ever – you can totally steal it, I won’t tell.

OMG you have twins? So do I!


This is honestly the title of hundreds of emails I’ve received over the years. Yes, we have twins. No, they do not run in my family. Here’s a quick recap of our experience with IVF, if you are interested. Yes, the first year was brutal – although now I think I have it easier. They are my absolute treasures.

Can I work for A Subtle Revelry?

One of my favorite parts of running this site is the staff team I get to work with. I am always looking to add new talent to the mix! If you are interested in joining up as a contributor email [email protected] with a link to your site or portfolio and I’ll check it out.

Can you teach me how to grow my blog, make money blogging, or start a new blog?

It was because of all the emails I’ve received that I initially began giving personalized business consultations. It’s a great option if you are interested in launching, growing, or monatizing a blogging site. I share lots of juicy details about our process and the triumphs and trials of building a profitable blog. I also write monthly posts here about blogging, and how it’s a lot like dieting.

Can I post your photos & ideas?

Thanks for asking – I’m flattered, really! Having friendly sites feature my work is a HUGE way we’ve grown this site and I am always thankful for a kind mention. Since all the work on this site is protected by copyright, I do have a few rules: Please only feature one photo from any post or project – I do not allow a complete project to be reposted anywhere, anytime. Please always link back to the original article here on my site whenever a photo/idea is run and please always credit the project designer and photographer in your feature. Thanks!
