Fall Tablescape for Simon Pearce

Last week I held a small event at Simon Pearce on Newbury Street at which I decorated a fall themed tablescape  in their store (still there for the next week or so if you want to check out in person!)  I really love how it turned out so I wanted to share it with you along with some tips for setting a fall table for entertaining!

Tempting Tabletop Collections

I’ve always loved a good tabletop setting, oogling many a dinner party set up on Pinterest with the best of them. Yet I personally own pretty boring stuff to set a table with. As of late I’ve been picking up some interesting pieces (striped plates from OKL, a set of fabulous Herend salad plates from my mother in law) and hoping to keep adding to that collection -where I’ll store it all, I have no clue!  I’ve said before I regret not registering for patterned , fancy china (particularly this set) when I got married.  I mean, when else are you going to spend the money to get such stuff?  The answer: never!  So I try to encourage brides to not think about their lifestyle now but down the road when they maybe actually own a dining table and want to throw parties.

So here are three new collections I’m loving- starting with this amazing collection from Raynaud in partnership with the fabulous wallpaper company Fromental.  I love this style wallpaper, and so obviously I love it translated into china!  You can get just some salad plates to add to simple white dinnerware or perhaps register for the whole shebang.

Crafting A Summer Cocktail Party with OKL!


This weekend we were out planting and cleaning up our back patio and garden and it made me think about having a summer cocktail party to celebrate the fact that winter actually left!  I think we here in New England are finding this spring especially sweet, so I suspect there are a lot of folks planning and scheming to do some outdoor entertaining this summer.

So I pulled together some items that I think make for an awesome summer cocktail party from One Kings Lane, my favorite source for fun tabletop goods (I bought those striped plates a few weeks ago!)  I kept the theme to blue and green but wanted to try mixing tons of patterns to create a loose but cohesive look. When throwing a casual outdoor party don’t worry too much about matchy-matchy things and focus more on color, texture and FUN.

What I’ve Been Missing In My Life

I didn’t even know it until I saw this article, but a cocktail tower may be the secret to happiness. :)

Yup, there are people in this world who have gorgeous structures on their property expressly for drinking cocktails while watching the sun go down.  I can’t even wrap my brain around this awesomeness, so I’ll just let you take a look:
