I used our layered […]

Don’t get me wrong, I love summer entertaining…especially the simplicity of it, the casualness, and the availability of outdoor space. BUT….there is nothing more exciting to me than the idea of Fall coming. I love everything about it! The crisp, cool air, the cozy, cableknit sweaters, the rich colors, and the delicious […]

I am absolutely in love with this gorgeous centerpiece I saw from a recent wedding featured on Style Me Pretty! It’s such a simple and inexpensive idea – gather a series of glass vases and hurricanes, fill with water, and place a floating candle in each of them. Clustered together the glow makes a huge impact!

Pop ruby red and canary yellow against the black and white patterns in accents such as napkins, cocktails or […]

During the summer months, I indulge in a love affair with zucchini and tomatoes. My husband does not exactly share my infatuation (at least not with the zucchini), so in order to keep my love affair going strong, I need to step up my game and bring some new recipes to the table! Epicurious has just […]
