My Favorite Blog

A few weeks ago I discovered the incredibly stylish blog of JENNY HOBICK. And I am obsessed! It has quickly become one of my Top 5 daily reads. Luh-ve!

Jenny is a fellow Bostonian who lives in Concord which is the only suburb I would consider if I had to leave the city and is home to some of my close friends. 

Her blog has the best ideas for entertaining (with beautiful photography and recipes).

Entertaining ideas

 Stylish homemade hostess gifts and so much more...


A Year Later

It is hard to believe that this weekend marks one year. Talk about grace under pressure. And still dazzling...

Privet House for Target

Privet House is one of my favorite spots to visit when I am home visiting my mum in Litchfield County, CT. (They also have a store in Greenwich).

The stylish duo behind these shops are Richard Lambertson and Suzanne Cassano. Right?? Don't you want to have a martini with them? HERE is a fun interview with them.

They have a fantastic selection of home goods, bar ware and hostess gifts. But the most exciting thing is that they are part of the new line THE SHOPS AT TARGET and will be in stores  across the country next week. Here are a few items for entertaining that you will find on May 6th. Luh-ve!


White Spring Centerpiece

One of my dear friends in Boston had her daughter's first communion this past weekend. They were so sweet to include me in this important family occasion. I did the centerpiece for the celebratory dinner after mass. Since all the girls wear white for communion, that set the color scheme. I used lilies, freesia and roses. I wrapped the oasis in aspidistra leaves (the secret that most florists use). So easy! 


For the Love of Orchids

I have a love affair with orchids (especially since you can now find them at such competitive prices). I have them in my home and in my office. I use them when I entertain in centerpieces and I love them for the bride, her maids or even the groom!
