Delightful Dinning

This weekend we had my parents and Chris’s parent over for dinner. We had such a nice time. First thing to prep was to set the table!

I went with my grandma’s china, mikasa black and white chevron and some of my new glasses from my shower.

Happy Friday

Hope to find some time to work on my chairs this weekend. I am going to paint them a turq and upholster them with some pink/orange ikat fabric and maybe some solid coral for the cushion. Fingers crossed I find time!

Dinner Party This Weekend

This weekend we are having my parents and Chris’s parents over for dinner as a mini thank you dinner before the wedding. I have been thinking of my menu all week.

I think we will do steak and lobster for dinner with the risotto I made 2 weeks ago.

Rasberry Sorbet


I really want to try out my new kitchen aid ice cream attachment that I got for my shower so I think this sorbet sounds amazing!

I will be sure to share pics from the dinner and the finalized menu on Monday!

Wedding Wednesday: Bachelorette Invites

I can’t believe how close the wedding is getting. I was even more excited when I got my bachelorette invite in the mail. Made by my sister, I thought they were so cute!

Do you like them? We are going to be doing a fancy dinner party outside for the celebration. I can’t wait!

Happy Monday

Sorry I was on hiatus for a week. We were in wedding invite mode trying to tie up all the details with that. But they are officially in the mail and I am feeling much calmer!


Anyway over the last week I did get some cooking in. I tried this risotto recipe. Super simple and easy but SO delish!

new tea cups

I got to play tea party with my new Wedgewood tea set I got from my last shower. I am in love with them. seriously!


And this past weekend Chris and I celebrated getting the wedding invites out, and planning our honey moon, with a toast at brunch. Our favorite spot Trocadero. The next two months are going to be super busy leading up to the wedding and I have a couple work travel trips. Lets just hope I remain sane until it is all done!
