We are so excited to be participating in the Heading Home to Dinner event this year at the Boston Design Center! Last year was the first time local designers put on this event and it was a huge success, raising lots of money for a great cause and having a fabulous time while doing it! The event is comprised of Boston area designers creating unique table scapes and bar carts. You can come see them all Thursday from 11-3pm! There is a great dinner event tomorrow night, but it has sold out already!
Here’s our table! We are so grateful to partners Duralee/ Robert Allen Group, Makkas Drapery Workroom and Juliska for their generosity in helping us create this gorgeous table. I wanted it to be a mix of traditional and modern, relaxed and formal and I think we really achieved that! I was inspired by the interiors and gardens of various notable style mavens like Bunny Mellon, Aerin Lauder and Tory Burch.
Today is my 13th (!!!!!!) anniversary with Andrew. I cannot believe we’ve been together now over 15 years, but also can’t recall life before him ( well I can, but I’d rather not). So a little revisit to our wedding feels appropriate, as it always does. I am so glad that still, 13 years later, our special day looks classic. There aren’t any glaringly obvious “trends” or choices that make me cringe at all, which is shocking — and makes me very happy.
I am honestly depressed the royal wedding is over. I was delighted out of my mind on Saturday morning watching it and thought it was the best royal wedding ever. Not only for it’s beauty but for the more relaxed (for royals) vibe it had as well as a serious feeling of true love. Like, Harry is HEAD OVER HEELS, it’s so obvious. She was cool as a cucumber, and he was a fidgety, teary mess! It was adorable!
Ok, so down to brass tacks– the church and flowers were AMAZING. Absolutely perfect, loose, garden-inspired and exactly what I was thinking they would do.
It’s HERE!!!!! Tomorrow morning I’ll be up bright and early to watch the event of the year. Of course, I had to post today about my final fashion guesses about the dress, hair, etc. but also had some fun dreaming up looks for guests (ahem, MYSELF). So here we go!!!
THE DRESS DESIGNER: BURBERRY
I think it’s going to be Burberry– no label is more British and yet also offers goods to the masses. Megan wants to be the new “People’s Princess” and this choice would be brilliant.
I wanted to post my Mother’s Day gift guide nice and early this year so everyone has time to order something special for their mama (or wife. or friend. or yourself!) I am loving so many of these items, I hope you do too!
