Spring is officially here and I could not be more excited! I love hosting this time of year– in addition to the abundance of beautiful blossoms, there are so many fun entertaining pieces to use for a fresh spring table. I also love that recipes are light, fresh and colorful. Below are some of my favorite tableware pieces for spring as well as some delicious seasonal recipes. Happy brunching!
It’s Henry’s first Easter and I’m so excited to have his first Easter basket complete. Although he’s a little too young to fully understand, I still wanted to start the tradition and am looking forward to having him “open” it on Easter morning. I stuffed it with books and toys and am linking some of my favorite gift ideas for your little ones here!
We had such a special weekend celebrating H’s baptism with family and friends. I served finger sandwiches and an orzo salad, and of course set out a large cheese board for snacking. For dessert, we had custom cookies and a homemade angel food cake with berries and lemon curd. It was a beautiful, sunny Sunday that we will remember forever!
This ocean-front shingled Gambrel style beach house by Patrick Ahearn (architecture) and Katie Rosenfeld (interiors) has me falling in love with color! Katie’s goal was a colorful and eclectic interior that still felt sophisticated and fresh, and it’s clear that she nailed it. I love this mixed with the classic colonial architecture.
There’s no denying my first love of stripes, but gingham comes in a close second. It’s such a classic pattern that can be used anywhere– from pillows to headboards, skirts to tablecloths, couches to dresses. It’s both feminine and masculine and mixes wonderfully with other patterns. It also does not have to mean country bumpkin… unless of course you want it to!
Who doesn’t want a potting room?! In the home I have dreamed up in my head there is a big, beautiful one with a dutch door out to my big, beautiful garden! Here are a few potting rooms I’ve found that have provided inspiration. xx
