I love any opportunity to entertain family and friends, and I especially love being able to create a beautiful space on our patio in order to host dinners and brunches. Because we have a big family but a small dining room, creating an outdoor dining room is a fun (but challenging) project and I try […]
I’m so excited to be back! It’s been so long. I started a new business and it’s taken me by storm. It’s busy and very exciting, but I’m very happy to be able to share a fun project I did for my sister with you today. So a few months ago, my little sister got […]
Tips for stress-free entertaining. I had a Girls’ Night In and threw a Wine and Cheese Ornament Exchange party! On a weeknight, no less. Easy and fun!
You know it’s coming. Along with the avalanche of school papers that will start hitting your house come September, so begins a steady stream of birthday party invitations.

Our annual Mother’s Day Brunch was a bit smaller than usual, but it was still filled with love, laughter and some really good food. I know some people think it’s a bit unusual that I (a mom) want to have hostessing/cooking duties on Mother’s Day, but I enjoy it. Me and my beautiful mom. Love […]
