table decor; wine and cheese party

Sunday Suppers created this gorgeous dessert cheese table for martha stewart weddings blog. I love the palette {cream + white} and the rustic inspired table decor. I also really like how they have cute signs for the cheeses and individual plates on porcelain boards. And I really really want a farmhouse table like this one. I wonder if I can convince the huz to construct one by reclaiming wood planks in our yard.

We loved the idea of taking a huge artistic display, and breaking it down into little tastings for each guest. – sunday suppers

Not only am I drooling as I write this, but am totally inspired to host a wine and cheese party. I might even try one of the cheese recipes from Thomas Keller’s book The French Laundry.

holiday tables; glam in gold + pink

Hello dears. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and weekend. We hosted our very first thanksgiving dinner for a few friends and were joined by more friends for desserts. A very fun night! I made mashed potatoes and this salad as well as this cake and this tart for dessert. My huz made his first turkey and delish bourbon sweet potatoes! It all turned out gob smacking good!

Thank you so much for all your lovely emails and comments about the table decor. I went with the gold, amber and ruby decor for the table. And because SO SO many of you asked for it, I have decided to feature a table decor idea everyday during the holidays. I will try to feature as many of my own designs as possible too. Perhaps some inspired by fall/winter fashion as well. For the rest of the holiday season, you can find a good collection of table decor ideas right here, under category holiday table decor.

This table features classic tableware by villeroy & boch. the napkins are by busatti. I saw similar ones at macys. You can also easily handmake them using material from your local fabric store. Zgallerie has several glam napkin rings to get this look.
