Patio Perfection!

As summer and my patio project draw to a close I am craving the opportunity to throw an al fresco dinner party. And after seeing Domaine’s spread featuring Nicole Richie’s outdoor space all dressed up for an evening of food, drinks and friends my desire quadrupled!!




I absolutely LOVE the blues and greens in this bouquet!!!


Gold flatware simple HAS to happen for me. Has to.



Twinkly lights make everything better.
