Plum Organics World Baby – Taste of Italy: Sponsored Post

Right now I have many, many things on my crazy, preggo brain!  I am trying to get out of the spin cycle at work and get ahead of the curve on my desk, so that I can actually have this baby somewhere other than my office.  I am thinking about how nice it is that […]

Green-spiration – A Gold, Green & White Tablescape

 Green, white and gold is a simple and classic color palette for a Spring table.  The green and white is bright and cheery enough for daytime entertaining, but the gold dishes and accents can also take you into evening for an elegant dinner party.  The table runner for this table is a “leftover” of sorts […]

Peonies and Pizzazz for a Mother’s Day Tablescape

Purple Party Reprise

Remember how I mentioned that after the Mary Lillie Memory Club Luncheon that the decor got a repeat for a precious co-worker that is getting married?  Well, here it is in all the detail.  I apologize that the picture quality isn’t top notch, but occasionally a busy hostess just doesn’t have time to stop to […]

Mary Lillie Memory Club Luncheon – A Pretty Purple Celebration

It all started with some pillows from Joss & Main.  I quickly got hooked on the orchid trend and from there the “party room” decor and color palette for the luncheon grew.  I didn’t want the room to look a scene from the chorus of “Purple People Eater”, so I decided that aqua blue would […]

Roasted Beet, Lentil & Grapefruit Salad with Goat Cheese & Walnuts

Who says a salad can’t still be a salad without lettuce?! I recently hosted a luncheon in honor of my grandmother’s memory for some very special ladies at my house.  We affectionately called it the “Mary Lillie Memory Club”, because the attendees were some of the ladies that loved my grandmother the most and she […]
