Spring Lunch Under the Trees

It feels like it was just yesterday that we posted Timothy Corrigan’s out-of-this-world holiday entertaining style at the fabulous Château du Grand-Lucé. Five months later, the temperatures are steadily on the rise in the Loire Valley, and Timothy’s transitioning his parties from dinners by candlelight, to lunch in the garden. We caught up with the interior designer… read more

With its cozy sheepskins, unfussy airplant centerpiece and a stack of logs ready to go, this is my ideal setting for… read more


My Life, Styled :: Beverly Hills Brunch

One of the perks of living in LA is the multitude of swanky hotels perfect for brunching, lunching and meeting up with friends.

Tuesday Tastings :: Strawberry & Brie Salad

Last night, I went to an Austin Film Festival screening of Spinning Plates with my mom. It was a documentary about three wildly different restaurants, their incredible owners and the unexpected commonalities between them. Seriously one of my favorite films of the year, and I was amazed at how I took something different away from… read more

Thankfully, Larry McGuire, Austin’s culinary boy wonder, has gotten it just right once again, articulating exactly what we wanted before we even knew quite what… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Sunny Side Up

It’s the day after the first SXSW weekend, and I doubt I’m the only one who woke up craving eggs benedict followed by a long workout to sweat out all those margaritas. My panel on creating video for the web was yesterday morning – thanks so much to all of you who came out for… read more

An HGTV New Year’s Day

In case you missed it, the second video in our party planning series for HGTV.com is live! We had so much fun putting together this New Years Day brunch, inspired by clean slates with bright poppy accents, and not to be complete without a build your own mimosa bar, of course. Not to worry… if you weren’t able to… read more


Monochromatic Monday: Morning, Sunshine!

Happy Labor Day! I’m writing y’all from a gorgeous Napa Valley hotel room, and I must say…this is one awesome way to start the week. After a crazy few days of work with a massive client party on Friday, it’s been so refreshing to get away and totally relax, with little on the schedule besides… read more
