As the days get longer and Spring begins to whisper it’s arrival, it’s hard not to get excited! There’s a lightness and joy that comes with Spring, as nature (and me in many ways) comes back to life. Budding trees, animals coming out of hibernation and the celebration of Easter, just a few of my favourite things when it comes to Spring.
Summer is all about dining al fresco. And there is nothing more I love than hosting friends for a casual and laid back summer meal. But with only a small, seven feet by eleven feet inner city balcony, creating an inspiring place to host my dearest required some creativity. Today I’m sharing the tricks I used to create an enchanted inner city outdoor entertaining space for anyone with a small, perhaps uninspired patio or balcony.
With Christmas less than two weeks away, it’s time to start thinking about your Holiday Tablescape. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I take my tablescapes very seriously. I start planning them months in advance; I’ve also been known to set the table weeks before Christmas and then not let anyone touch it until the magical day arrives.
While perhaps a little crazy ;-), planning so far in advance allows me to slowly pull together pieces to create the perfect setting. Because I have so much fun designing tables, this year I thought I would offer you three very different tablescape inspirations to help you create a beautiful table to host family and friends.
