How to Set up an Easter Waffle Bar

How to Set up an Easter Waffle Bar

Last year we had a mimosa bar as part of our Easter brunch  ( you can see it here ). It was such a hit with everyone, that this year I'm still going the self-service bar   for brunch. But with waffles!   The cute bunnies from our traditional Easter Printable Kit are the perfect match for this "Hoppy Easter" styling. I like that's it's not too girly, since my boy wouldn't approve anyways ;)

Tips for Hosting a Relaxed Dinner Party

Tips for Hosting a Relaxed Dinner Party

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of  Santa Margherita USA  . All opinions are 100% mine. The best dinner parties I've ever hosted, or at least the ones I remember most fondly; are the "relaxed" ones where I, the host, get to enjoy every minute of it as much as my guests! So throughout the years, I've tried to hone in on what works and perfect the art of dinner parties by  keeping it all as simple as possible. Whether I have days to plan ahead, or for a last-minute get-together. For me, simplicity is the name of the party game when dinner parties are concerned!

How to Host a Fab Super Bowl Party

How to Host a Fab Super Bowl Party

American Football is not no longer a sporting event that's celebrated in the US alone. The love of the game and the NFL Super Bowl has taken over the globe, and I'm happy to see so many bars where you can now watch the Super Bowl in London, Paris and all over Europe! So a Super Bowl themed party was really a necessity 'round here.  Even, if like me; you're in it just for the food & the beer ;)

My Modern DIY Thanksgiving Tablescape

My Modern DIY Thanksgiving Tablescape

If you follow along on Instagram (yes, you really should) you'd have seen sneak peeks of my studio and office make-overs this summer. I'm nowhere finished yet, but the lounge where I do all my photo shoots is at last painted and a blank canvas waiting to be adorned with party decor each season. And this simple DIY Thanksgiving tablescape is the first to christen the space!! It's quiet appropriately, as I'm super thankful to have this little nook to do my work in.  And for that alone, I'm extra giddy to share the photos with your today! :)

A Bright & Colorful Summer Party Fiesta

A Bright & Colorful Summer Party Fiesta

Fiestas are not only reserved for Cinco de Mayo. I personally, would have a fiesta any day of the week. Tacos, pinatas, Margaritas....the lot! So when my friend Gillian sent over her stunning party photos with a fiesta theme and get this, PINATA COOKIES (!!); I actually did a little dance. It's a softer take on the usually bright Mexican inspired theme. It has pastel colors and warm summer hues with a  stunning watercolor cake, and I reckon it would be PERFECT for a seasonal wedding, bridal shower, dinner party or girly birthday!
