Happy friday friends. Thank you so much for you visits and comments here this week. You are the bestest ever!

Any movie buffs {like me} out there excited for the Oscars?

What better way to celebrate the movies than to get together with a bunch of friends for an oscars viewing party!

Here are a couple of ideas for those hosting a red carpet fete –

Hostess with the mostess has some great printables {napkin wraps, popcorn labels, placecards etc} to glam up your par-tay.

And on the menu – how about a popcorn bar?

or/ and a dessert bar

Play this fun equally clever printable oscars bingo to see how your predictions for the winners match up.

Who are your favs for this year’s oscars?

Have a great weekend. xo

8 kitchen ideas inspiration

My husband and I love to entertain and a gourmet kitchen was high on our list when we were shopping for a home.

So when we fell in love with our current home with its TINY, after-thought, hallway-sort-of kitchen, we knew a kitchen reno was inevitable.

For years I have been collecting tear sheets and inspiration pics for when we start the kitchen reno project. I have to admit that looking at GORGEOUS kitchens, rooms and homes on a daily basis doesnt make it easy to narrow down that wishlist.

Here are the latest additions to the kitchen inspiration folder.

How brilliant is this use of under staircase space as kitchen storage?

Love the ceiling in this one. Natural light!

Skylights and wood ceilings would make me happy too.

Island/ peninsula with white carrera marble/ corian countertop and dark wood floors. Love the orb pendant lights too.

Chalkboard and beverage station

Stylish cabinetry.

Two-way cabinets and counter space.

Butlers pantry

What’s on your kitchen wishlist?
