To Do: Weekend Checklist

Friday, August 17, 2012
With only a few more weekends of Summer, we're trying to pack in everything we can before our time is filled with Fall parties and events. Here's a glimpse at our weekend checklist. From Restaurant Week, tabletop market, catching up on reading, and even a POSH engagement, we've got a lot going on! What will you be doing?

We're getting inspired about new prints, like Marquise de Laborde and the fantastic embroidered linens she makes in France or the latest wallpaper collection from Hermes. Both of these lines tell tremendous stories with their intricate designs, and trust when we say you'll fall in love. 

Besides catching up on the latest September issues (!!!), we're reading a couple of great books. Gone Girl has been on the New York Times best reading list for some time now, and it's worth the hype. Laurel recommended By Invitation Only: How We Built Gilt and Changed the Way Millions Shop, and we love the great advice from these two beautiful ladies that show us the brains and grace under pressure you need when starting a daring new business.

It's Restaurant Week in Dallas! If you haven't had the chance to try Cafe Pacific's Pecan Ball, now's the time. It's on the RW menu. Not only that, but it's been featured on The Food Network "Best Thing I Ever Ate" series. We have to agree.
Cooking at home? Mrs. Lilien, the hostess with the mostess, has the ultimate recipe for pesto. It's a must try! (Her image above.)

One of our very own got engaged! Congrats to Meg Hayes and her wonderful fiance Jason. We have to admit, we can't wait to help plan.

Jami and Laurel are heading back from NYC's tabletop market. What kind of goodies will they be bringing back? To be first in-the-know, sign up for our weekly newsletter, which always features trends, new showroom items, and sales.
