I don’t know about all of you, but my husband and I haven’t dined out on Valentine’s Day in probably fifteen years! That night it is overly crowded, and the food is always expensive. Most years we do a dinner out on another night and a family dinner on Valentine’s Day itself. But this year, it falls on a Thursday which happens to be a night my teens will be out at a weekly function. So I thought, why not do a special dinner at home in our own dining room? Candles, good food, uninterrupted conversation and no crowds or over-priced food – sign me up!
This year my Christmas decor has gone in a decidedly different direction, and I couldn’t be happier! Recently, I shared my kitchen tour and my entry way, both of them softened with blush pinks and white. So of course, for my first tablescape of the year, I went with the same palette! Today I’m sharing my Christmas Table Setting as part of the Seasons of Home Holiday Series, hosted by Kristen of Ella Claire.
Hello friends, and welcome to another edition of Styled + Set, the wonderful entertaining blog tour hosted by my friend Lory of Designthusiasm. I absolutely love doing this tour as there are so many talented bloggers, and I always get lots of inspiration from the gorgeous tables they all share! If you’re looking for even more tablescape ideas, be sure to take a look at my free e-book, featuring twelve of my favorite tables (one for each month of the year!)
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?
Today’s post is a special one that I’ve never done before, and I’m excited to share it with you! Lisa of Shine your Light, Kris of Driven by Decor, Pam of Simple Details and Jennifer of Dimples and Tangles do a Five Favorite posts every month and they always ask a guest blogger to contribute. This month is all about Summer Essentials, and I was thrilled that they asked me to join them! Summer is definitely a favorite season of mine, and I love that I get a chance to share my favorite summer essentials with you.
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!
