Delegate the Derby: Part 2

No Derby party is complete without a fabulous bar set-up. Now that we’ve shared two tablescape ideas with you (read Part 1 here), it’s time to talk about the cocktail bar. It was actually really fun pulling together all the details and accessories to style our Derby-themed bar. For décor we used items that I alreadyContinue reading “Delegate the Derby: Part 2”

Delegate the Derby: Part 1

And just like that, we’re off to the races yet again! May is such a crazy month for events, and it feels like everything is back-to-back, especially with Easter so late this year. There’s the Derby, Cinco De Mayo, Steeplechase (for all my Nashville friends) and then Mother’s Day. It’s just too much to celebrate.Continue reading “Delegate the Derby: Part 1”

Delegate the Fiesta

It takes a village to raise a child, and it certainly takes a village of vendors to pull together a first birthday party. I’m only kind of joking y’all. If you’re looking to achieve that “Pinterest-worthy party” without spending months crafting away or investing a fortune buying things you will never use again, you’ve gotContinue reading “Delegate the Fiesta”

Roller Disco Party

I’ve come to find out that adults love roller skating as much as kids do. We’re also often just as horrible at roller skating as a child first learning. Yet, that doesn’t stop us, and it’s still a blast. And because Nashville experienced an unusually long and rainy winter, I’ve spent quite a lot ofContinue reading “Roller Disco Party”

Bubbles and Brunch Party

Shop the party: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 I’ve decided that when “partying” with my girlfriends, I equally love lounging in pajamas as much as I enjoy glamming it up. There’s a time and place for both, and this “high andContinue reading “Bubbles and Brunch Party”

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”

Delegating with Draper James: An End-of-Summer Tablescape

Well friends, we’ve made it to the end of the summer, and I’m actually excited for the change in seasons here in Nashville. Maybe it’s because my kids go back to school, and as much as I love them, mamma needs a break. I’ve also already purchased a new closet-full of sweaters and swapped outContinue reading “Delegating with Draper James: An End-of-Summer Tablescape”

This Party’s On Fire

I will try and restrain myself from using too many “on fire” jokes in this post when referring to the firetruck-themed birthday party I just hosted, but I can’t make any promises. If you’re like me, you probably seriously stress over making sure you include all the “perfect details” for your child’s birthday parties. Well,Continue reading “This Party’s On Fire”

Yellow Everything

I used to be scared of the color yellow. Now, I find myself almost always gravitating to it when looking for flowers, linens or other decor items. It’s a no-brainer for summer parties, but I also love using it for early-fall entertaining. While I was procrastinating writing this post and spending way too much moneyContinue reading “Yellow Everything”

Getting Your Summer (Rat)TAN On

Summer entertaining brings to mind several materials that embody outdoor dining, one of those being rattan. I love everything rattan from furniture to dinnerware, and it’s become very popular, so there are plenty of places to find reasonably priced pieces. As you know, we’re all about making entertaining as stress-free and simple as possible aroundContinue reading “Getting Your Summer (Rat)TAN On”
