Delegate the Tailgate

Well y’all it’s the middle of tailgate season, and I’ve got a few hacks to help you remain the hostess-with-the-mostess, without breaking a sweat. Now, given that it’s been hotter than hell here in Tennessee the entire month of September, you’re still probably going to sweat, but hopefully none of it’s stress-related. I can tellContinue reading “Delegate the Tailgate”

Spring Tablescape with Fete Nashville

Pull out your parasol and crumpets, because today’s post is so southern and “old-fashioned- chic” you just might swoon. If Scarlet O’Hara was alive (and real) today, I’m pretty sure she’d be proud to dine at this table. This is why I love living in the south ya’ll. Chinoiserie and toile are alive and well,Continue reading “Spring Tablescape with Fete Nashville”

Not Your Mother’s Milkshake

I love a fun new dessert trend. Usually I’m not one for the word “trend,” but I do believe that serving dessert in a unique way or offering something unexpected, is a great way to enhance an event without too much extra effort or expense. For example, the donut wall. Genius. Kids love them (soContinue reading “Not Your Mother’s Milkshake”

Breakfast in Bed for Mom: Keep it Simple and Sweet

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see that I clearly love wearing matching outfits with my 5-year-old daughter. She loves to match as much as I do, but I know it’s short-lived, so I’m taking full-advantage of it while I can. Our latest find is the mommy-and-me matching pajamas from the Beaufort Bonnet Company.Continue reading “Breakfast in Bed for Mom: Keep it Simple and Sweet”

Delegating Mother’s Day Gift Guides

Gifting is my love language. And I’m pretty sure most moms agree that a gift on Mother’s Day is always welcome and enjoyed no matter how big or small it is. One common theme you’ll notice amongst my guides is that I don’t suggest anything that requires additional “work.” Meaning, there are no cooking tools,Continue reading “Delegating Mother’s Day Gift Guides”

Mother’s Day Brunch

I’m not going to lie and tell you that I host the perfect Mother’s Day brunch, lunch, or even a snack. Since becoming a mother myself, I always request to eat out for Mother’s Day. I barely want to get out of my pajamas on the one glorious day of the year that’s “all aboutContinue reading “Mother’s Day Brunch”
