I love dressing up a table for any occasion. So this weekend I decided to have my friend Mary over so we could catch up.
I busted out my favorite dishes and did some print mixing.
Dishes shown: Wedgewood Tea Service, Kate Spade Dot Accent Plates, Crate and Barrel Napkins (no longer available).
As for food I tried this new recipe from Martha Stewart for the appetizer, Roasted Tomato and Ricotta Crostini. I made individual egg bakes from my own making. The little bite size desserts I just picked up from whole foods, but I think next time i am going to try and make them. I don’t think they would be too hard!
I served the egg bake with greens and bacon.
It was a lovely brunch!
In the new County Living this month they featured Vivienne Westwood Wallpaper and let me tell you I am loving her new prints. Plaids and florals. Check them out!
I think gift baskets are so fun! It is always a welcomed gift because I fill them with small indulgences that you would usually not buy yourself. I pulled one together for my mom’s birthday this week and it was a big hit.

This weekend I was at my parents house. I always love going over there because my mom has beautiful dishes to play with!
Her china that we used is this Lauren by Ralph Lauren Collection.
Also over the weekend I helped my mom do a little update to her dinning room table. She was getting a bit tired of her previous decor so we spruced it up with some stacked ginger jars! Don’t you love!!
I’m back! I have been in New York for the week for work. This visit was fun because I went in early to visit with a friend and I actually got to see a bit of the city!
First we hit up Brooklyn. It was fun to hang out here! I have been before but only for work dinners so I haven’t really had chance to experience it!
Next up was the Highline. I have wanted to visit here for some time. So beautiful! A little oasis in the city!
Hooray for ABC Carpet and Home! I love visiting here. I get so inspired by all the beautiful things!
And we had to pick up macaroons at Laduree. So delish and the interior of the shop is heaven. I mean look at those gorgeous window displays. So beautiful!
Well back to normal work in Milwaukee! Hope everyone is having a great week.
Got myself caught up on adore last night. Love all the bright beautiful colors in it!
First I have been saying for some time that a roof top party is a must in my future. I just need to find one to borrow for the night. You can see my outdoor dinner party from last year here. And my outdoor bachlorette party here.
love all the print here and the pop of wallpaper print peeking out from the back!
love love love!
Last we all know the last thing I need is more tea cups. But these beauties were featured in Adore this month and I might have to give in to those stripped black and whites….so pretty. Find them here!
