I recently stumbled upon a friend I’ve known since 6th grade(no, I will not say how many years that is!).  The irony of the story is that I stumbled upon her fabulously popular blog, Pink and Polka Dot, about slipcovers, thrifting, and overall musings of a mom.  She has a very engaging online ‘voice,’ and when I […]

Stylish Food Presentation

I think it’s been documented here before, that I love stylish food presentation. So when Mandy Revzen sent over the pictures from her recent Housewarming Party, I was quite happy….then I was hungry!  What I love is that there are no fancy or gourmet recipes to fuss with.  But presented on skewers, and uniform rows, it […]

I’m excited to share this party with you as I think it is perfectly suited to any Ladies Night, Bridal Shower, or Birthday Party!  I actually did this for my own monthly ladies gathering Friday night.  The inspiration for ‘Modern Safari’ came from the fun cocktail napkins above, and was reinforced when I saw the […]

Crafty Flowers

One of my favorite ‘crafty’ design elements is faux flowers.  There are so many different ways to use them in your entertaining decor.  Add a few faux flowers into a bouquet of real flowers, create a centerpiece entirely of hand crafted flowers, create napkin rings, table runners, hanging decor…the possibilities are endless!  And depending on the […]
