Spring & Summer

Delegate the Decor – Beachy Vibes in Nashville

It’s been rainy and chilly in Nashville lately and I’m dreaming of lazy days at the beach. Luckily, my last photoshoot included this fantastic take on a beachside dinner that brings ALL the sunny vibes. While we’re counting down the days until summer vacation (almost there!), I’m relying on this table to help me driftContinue reading “Delegate the Decor – Beachy Vibes in Nashville”

Delegate the Decor – Here Comes the Sun

Before we dive into today’s post, I want to say that I’m praying for everyone struggling as a result of these horrendous winter storms. People in several states have been effected but things in Texas are really dire. I shared some donation resources in my stories and am re-posting that information here in case anyoneContinue reading “Delegate the Decor – Here Comes the Sun”

Delegate the Details – A Floral Fete with Friends

Spring is almost upon us, and I’m definitely looking forward to a fresh start with this new season of entertaining. We will hopefully be celebrating life together in larger groups soon, but for now, we’re keeping things intimate for this ladies floral arranging fete. For this shoot, I teamed up again with my friend theContinue reading “Delegate the Details – A Floral Fete with Friends”

Late Summer Entertaining, Round Two

Y’all know that I preach constantly about repurposing the pieces you already own for entertaining. In that spirit, I wanted to show you another take on my “Late Summer” table.  For my second look, I simply swapped out the etúHOME wooden boards for colorful plates and bowls. Cabbage dishware is definitely having a moment theseContinue reading “Late Summer Entertaining, Round Two”

Delegate the Tablescape: Late Summer Entertaining

Thank you to Freshly Set and etúHOME for sponsoring this post.  Late summer is one of my favorite times of year. September gives us the perfect balance of sunny days and hints of fall, setting the ideal scene for outdoor entertaining. Leave it to me to judge seasons by their “party potential,” but I doContinue reading “Delegate the Tablescape: Late Summer Entertaining”

Delegate the Details – Outdoor Entertaining with Yellow, Blue & White Decor

Thank you to Frances Valentine and Tuckernuck for sponsoring this post. Even though it’s officially 700 degrees here in Nashville, my family is spending a lot of time outside. As we ease back into entertaining in small groups, I think a lot of us are hosting outdoors for an extra measure of safety. With thatContinue reading “Delegate the Details – Outdoor Entertaining with Yellow, Blue & White Decor”

Delegate the Details – Blue & White is Always Right

Spring is here, and with it comes warmer weather and fresh blooms. But this year, it also comes with so much uncertainty as the world deals with the pandemic Coronavirus. To say things are a bit crazy right now is an understatement, and I would never have imagined what was to come when Paige MinearContinue reading “Delegate the Details – Blue & White is Always Right”

Summer Delegating & Re-Using What You Own

I’m a firm believer that the colors red, white and blue can be used all summer long and not just on national holidays. Of course they’re perfect for patriotic parties, but I love the color-combo for other events, especially anything coastal-themed. Thus, when I headed to Watercolor, Florida for a summer family trip, I grabbedContinue reading “Summer Delegating & Re-Using What You Own”

Palm Beach Tablescape

I love entertaining in the summer. Alfresco dining, fresh flowers and countless options for colorful tabletop decor that set the mood for joyful gatherings with family and friends. So when the “entertaining dream team,” which includes yours truly, Paige Minear and Caroline Hernandez, decided to head to Palm Beach for our next “Designing Women Getaway”Continue reading “Palm Beach Tablescape”

When you combine the talents of three women who focus their careers on entertaining and events, you’re going to get something special. And that’s exactly what happened when Paige Minear, Caroline Frierson and your’s truly met-up in Charleston and put together one heck of a summer cocktail party. When Paige and I decided to travelContinue reading “Summer Citrus Tablescape: Charleston Edition”

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”

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”

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”
