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 didn't stop there, I also loved the coasters, table cards and acrylic goblets too.  I picked up the plates and the planters and ginger jars in the background at an antique sale and a local estate sale not too long ago. I did find the exact...

Juliska Spring Tablescape

Posted by Katie Grabner on

    It was my absolute pleasure styling and photographing Juliska's new Berry & Thread Chambray collection. I cannot get over how gorgeous each and every last piece is! For those of you who know me well, you know I have a thing for blue. So when I saw this Chambray collection, I knew it was a match made in heaven for our house and our personal style. I styled two looks with this new Chambray collection. The first look is paired below with their also new Floretta Tidbit plates. I have spring on my mind around here, so I had...

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...

Christmas Eve Tablescape

Posted by Katie Grabner on

                                    This is the second year I have hosted Christmas Eve. It's been quite fun to have family over to our house to celebrate the holidays. It always ends up being more work than I anticipated taking on the day before Christmas, but it has always been so rewarding to have family together, celebrating the most wonderful time of the year! I also can never help myself to just go a little over-board when it comes to tablescapes. I know my family would have been completely...
