Trend Alert: Hanging Decor

I don’t know what it is lately….but I am just plain obsessed with any type of hanging party decorations!  Whether it’s fabric covered letters hanging on a wall, or tiny votive candles hanging off floral branches – I just love the vertical element it adds to a room! And they would be perfect for [...]

Real Party: Modern Safari Ladies Night

Chris Nease from Celebrations at Home sent me this darling “modern safari” party she styled for her monthly ladies night.  It’s full of amazing DIY ideas that could be used for a bridal shower or birthday party.

Her inspiration came from the hot pink zebra striped cocktail napkins, and was reinforced after seeing Amy Atlas’ pink & orange [...]

Earth Day: Dinner Party

Earth Day is the perfect opportunity to invite a few friends over for a dinner party inspired by nature and your local farmer’s market.  Bring the outdoors inside by creating a table setting full of white dishes and natural elements, such as bark and potted plants.  I love the idea of using coasters of [...]

Spring Placecard Idea

I’m loving this placecard idea from weddingchannel.com for Spring!  They inserted gerber daisies into a pot of grass, but you could easily take the same concept and simplify it for your next table setting.  Try placing a gerber daisy into a small bud vase at each person’s place….and then pin a circle tag in the center [...]

Corned Beef: The Day After…

Corned beef – you crave it once a year around St. Patrick’s Day – you cook it, it tastes amazing – but what do you do with all of the leftovers?!  Corned beef sandwiches are great (check out this post from last year for a delicious idea!), but if you are looking for something new, give [...]

St. Patrick’s Day Dinner Party

I’m Irish.  Like, freckles and reddish-hair, Irish.  Have I ever told you that?!  So, not only do I come from a big, Irish family…but so does my husband!  Since St. Patrick’s Day falls mid-week this year, we had our two big family celebrations on Sunday.  I thought I got the holiday out [...]

Tartan Dinner Party

These late winter months always have me at a bit of a loss when it comes to setting a pretty table for a dinner party.  I mean, what I am really craving are bold, Spring colors, fresh flowers, and light dishes.  But when there is 10 inches of snow on the ground….that [...]

Flowers Dress Up Everything!

It’s true.  Flowers really do dress up everything.  Use this idea for Valentine’s Day or just as a simple way to dress up your dinner table.  Instead of putting the flower inside the vase, tie it to the outside of a votive candle, or a vase full of candy hearts for Valentine’s Day.  The result will [...]
