Entertaining and Design that celebrates life.

A few blooms for our guests arriving this afternoon. I love the wispiness of herbs in a flower arrangement & it’s so convenient to pull them from the garden!
Donuts on a stick? How’s a girl to resist? Darling party idea! #minishoelover (at DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse)

I was introduced to the designs of @laurenliess by a friend a few months ago & cannot stop swooning over her images! Her styling, which has been seen in @dominomag, is impeccable! I know you’ll love her feed as much as I do! #ff
