Lighten Up a Summer Favorite

Posted by Katie Grabner on

    Are you ready for the easiest way to lighten up a summer favorite? Take your go-to Rose, and add a splash or two of La Croix 'Hi-Biscus' flavor. This lightens your Rose in the most delightful way. Serve it up in your pretty glasses and add a garnish of choice for guests. I linked some of my favorite etched glassware below so you can recreate this look at home. Enjoy!     JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser. Reactivate it to view this content.

Blue and White Chinoiserie Table Top

Posted by Katie Grabner on

            Over at our house, blue and white tends to work its way in to almost everything. I adore the color combination and cannot get enough of sprinkling it around when I can. So it's no surprise that I had to have these blue and white chinoiserie cork boards.

I did find the exact...

A Spring Tablescape

Posted by Katie Grabner on

        With Spring and Easter on my mind, I had to share this lovely floral arrangement. The colors have my mouth watering for Spring time and the beautiful blooms and weather that is to come. Whether for an Easter tabletop or an elegant brunch or tea, I'm loving these colors. Pictured are some antique china plates, antique linens, antique glassware and Tiffany & Co candlesticks. I hope this gets you inspired for some warmer weather!  Katie

Soundbot Multi-Unit Bluetooth Speaker Review

Posted by Katie Grabner on

   One thing you need to know about me is that I love to entertain. I don't get to do it as much as I'd like to as a parent, but I do love to play hostess when I can.  When it comes to having friends over, music is an important way to 'set the mood.' Music is always a great way to bring some good vibes into any situation, but especially a way to make a room not feel so sterile when friends are over. We've had a handful of wireless speakers, so we were excited to try out...
