Entertaining with Rebecca de Ravenel

Designer Rebecca de Ravenel (remember her gorgeous home?) loves to entertain and has been sharing a bevy of hostessing tips online. Recent features on One Kings Lane, Vogue, and Tory Daily, show off Rebecca’s serious dinner party skills. I love her unconventional mix of table linens, dinnerware, and serveware. Many of her pieces were collected on her travels, something I love to shop for while abroad as well (“how did you fit all those cabbage plates in your carry on?!” -my husband). Below, find some gorgeous photos of Rebecca’s table settings and my suggestions on how you can get a similar look at your own soirées. READ POST

Aerin Collection for Williams Sonoma

Today is my birthday (31 feels good!) and I am delighted to share the day with the debut of the AERIN collection for Williams-Sonoma. Tastemaker Aerin Lauder was inspired by her family’s home in Palm Beach and I’m all about the line’s timeless, tropical vibe. From champagne buckets to bamboo frames, the new collection boasts a wide range of blue and white dinnerware, gilded decor, and chic woven outdoor furniture. I’m especially coveting the ikat linens, scalloped plates, and basketweave cachepots. I should treat myself for my birthday, right?! Below, find more lovely pieces from the AERIN for Williams-Sonoma collection. READ POST

My Top Picks From: Pier 1 Imports

As you know, I love finding treasures in unexpected places. Pier 1 Imports may not be on your regular shopping circuit, but lately, they have some great stuff (and it’s a total steal). Their thousands of online products can be a bit overwhelming, but I waded through them all to weed out the chicest pieces. Below, find over thirty great finds from Pier 1 Imports. Above, some classic cabbage dinnerware. READ POST

Best of Etsy: Rochaix Cookie Cutters

Do you love to bake? I don’t, but I love to eat cookies. These playful designs from Rochaix Cookie Cutters on Etsy have me wishing I had more skills in the kitchen. From animals to emojis, the shop sells just about every design imaginable and they’ve sold nearly 10,000 cookie cutters to date. Explore some of my favorites below (the pug!), and shop the full collection here. READ POST
