Happy Weekend



Spring is here!

Here’s a peek from today’s shoot over at Living Social‘s 918F st offices. We created three tablescapes/ party decor looks for their marketing collateral.They have awesome event spaces which are a delight to decorate. I LOVE how everything turned out. Especially love the pics taken by Lisa Marie of Sweet Tea Photography. I am such a fan of her work and such a pleasure to team up with. Thanks for all your hardwork Lisa Marie.


Happy Spring, friends.

Oscar de La Renta Gift and Entertaining Collection

Oscar de la Renta, one of my all-time favorite fashion houses, recently unveiled their gifts and entertaining collection. You know how much I love tropical beaches so this island-inspired is just what I want to stock my entertaining cabinet with. Table settings crafted by artisans feature teak accessories, silver-plated flatware and indigo patterned cocktail plates.




Love the colors of this dip-dyed tray.


So Summer! My pick from the collection?


The shell crab condiment server! Makes a fun centerpiece too. See more from the ODLR gifts and entertaining collection here.
