Cheese Dessert Table

I’m drooling.  Literally.  I came across this A-M-A-Z-I-N-G cheese dessert table from Sunday Suppers today, and I just couldn’t wait until Monday to share this with you!  I love how tastefully done this is – from the cheese cloth tablecloth, to the simple white pedestals and glass cloches – it’s simple and sophisticated.  Not to mention […]

Winter Cupcake Bar

It’s no secret that I am a sucker for both plaid and cupcakes.  So it’s no surprise that this idea from Southern Living literally made my head spin with ideas!

Although tartan plaid is typically associated with Christmas, I think you can use it all winter long.  It’s the perfect accent to transition your home from Christmas […]

Bumble Bee Baby Shower

 

I am always on the look-out for gender-neutral baby shower themes, and as you can tell, I love putting a sophisticated spin on them.  I think it’s important to remember that the shower may be celebrating the upcoming arrival of a baby, but it is also in honor of the mom-to-be…..so it’s important to […]

Bridesmaid Luncheon

 

When planning your wedding, consider thinking outside of the box when it comes to thanking your bridesmaids for their support during the planning process.  I suggest hosting a Bridesmaid Luncheon the week prior to the wedding – an event that is full of pretty things, kind words of appreciation, and some quality girl-time before the big […]
