Sunday Brunch

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!

Egg Bake

I served the egg bake with greens and bacon.

It was a lovely brunch!

Gift Basket 101

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.

New York Recap

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!

Drinks in Brooklyn

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!
