When I was a kid, I never really understood why my parents and the other adults in my life loved summer so much. I mean, I loved summer because there was no school (clearly the best thing ever!) But why did they like it, when they still had to go to work? And now that I’m an adult, I think I know. Alcohol.
Are you ready for summer entertaining? To me, this time of year always seems simpler and just a little more relaxed than any other season. There is just something about lingering after a dinner party on the patio on a summer evening, don’t you think?
I’m so excited to be sharing my first summer tablescape of the season with you! I always love doing tables, and I have to say it felt so nice to be doing one again – I’ve been missing it! If you love doing them as much as I do, you have to check out my free e-book featuring twelve of my favorites!
Spring is always such a fun time to entertain. After the long days of winter (and I know some of you are still having those!) it’s nice to see spring-y colors, green hills, and fresh blooms. It makes me excited to have spring dinner parties and start planting my garden!
Today I’m finally sharing the details of my trip this past fall to San Francisco and Napa Valley with the Zephyr Blogger/Designer Retreat, and I’ve also got an amazing giveaway for you! So make sure you read all the way to the end for all the details on how to enter!
I’ve been a little uninspired in the decorating department since taking all the Christmas decor down, but with Valentine’s Day coming soon, it’s the perfect excuse to break out some pretty pink decor! Today I’m joining some talented blogging friends for the Styled + Set Entertaining Blog Hop. If you’re coming here from our host, Lory of Designthusiam, I’m so glad you’re here!
