Thanksgiving 2015!

DSCF7419

Every year I host my family for Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday of the year. (You can see how much better I got at it, because it's all here on the blog!)  This year I was lucky enough to have both my side and David's side over - a total of 23 people including kids! Every year, my favorite part is the table setting. (Last year Goop instagrammed my table!) I use my wedding china - it has a feeling of abundance perfect for thanksgiving- and fresh veggies to decorate. I try to tie in rustic elements, with linen and twine and loose sweet flowers. Those elements counter act the ornate place … [Read more...]

TABLETOP | Surrey Lane Lookbook.

DSC_7257

Last spring, when I was 8.5 months pregnant, I shot and styled (with an amazing team) a beautiful lookbook for the Brooklyn based tabletop store Surrey Lane. We shot in an absolutely lovely home, and I really love the shoot and all the photos, and seeing as how we are now heading into "entertaining season" I thought it would be a good time to post lots of photos of bars and drinks...  Truth be told, the shoot kind of got lost in the shuffle of my life, because I had the baby right afterward. I'm currently in the process of doing what I like to call "Administrative" tasks for my household … [Read more...]

FOODIE FRIDAY: Sangria Tastes like Summer.

DSC_1913

It's officially SUMMER 2013! To celebrate, let's have drinks by the pool... I've already told you all about Julibox, the cocktail of the month club that my hubs and I are obsessed with. This month they sent us a liquor I've never heard of called Esprit de JUNE. It's literally a liquor made from certain wine grape blossoms that bloom only a few days a year in June. Uh huh. (Side note: You can also use St Germaine for this drink instead of the Esprit de June. Much easier to find and has the same effect.) The cocktail that you are seeing here is a "Sangria Parisienne" a blend of Kettle One … [Read more...]
