Toast: Father's Day

Friday, June 15, 2012
Today's post is dedicated to dearest Dad. From teaching you how to ride a bike to walking you down the aisle, there couldn't be a greater guy. It's high time to return the favor and plan a lunch celebration in his honor. Here's to you, Dad. Happy Father's Day!

F is for Father's Day. It looks pretty good wearing our Couture China Collection.

Blue & White: Oates & Goodyear

Thursday, June 14, 2012
When you think of classic tabletops for weddings, do you think blue and white china? We love how you can mix and match the patterns for dinner parties and entertaining, but we had yet to see a wedding that captured the ease and elegance of this traditional pattern until the Oates & Goodyear wedding. What a great idea! Weddings decor should reflect your personal style. When you have great taste, well, that should show too. Bravo to the bride and wedding planner Paige Chenault for putting together a beautiful tabletop.

This is the same Oates & Goodyear wedding. Notice how strong the Blue & White China is on both the print and solid linens. You really can't go wrong with this great pattern.

If you love this theme and want to take it a step further, this Martha Stewart Family Tree template is just right for you. It's brings a personal touch to a traditional ceremony. Best of all, it's free here

How do you know if this is pattern is right for you? The interior design of your house may be a hint. See how the pattern shows up in the interiors of our favorite homes and places.

Tabletop Tuesday: Fort Worth Hot Cha Cha

Tuesday, June 12, 2012
We thought we'd change it up this week and offer an oldie but a goodie for those of you thinking ahead to fall events and weddings. The gorgeous wedding of photographer Stacy Reeves has long been a favorite of ours - you can see why! In Texas, we do like to go big or go home, and with weddings, we just like to make sure we hit it out of the ballpark. We like to call this Hot Cha Cha, after the Resource One chiavari chair treatments. You have to show off when competing with a beautiful venue like Bass Performance Hall, so Hot Cha Cha, indeed.

Circle Dinner: Dallas Theater Center & Wyly Theater

Monday, June 11, 2012
The Dallas Theater Center recently held their Circle Dinner on the roof of the Wyly Theatre overlooking the Arts District. If you're not familiar with the Wyly Theatre, be sure to hop over and check out this amazing facility. Designed by REX/OMA, Josh Prince-Ramus (Partner in Charge) and Pritzker prize-winning architect Rem Koolhaas and recipient of the 2011 American Institute of Architects (AIA) Honor Award, it's easy to see why we love the Wyly and the great performers it brings to Dallas. Alec Baldwin recently came and pledged a $25,000 grant, which will only be met if you help by donating. Please go to Donor Services to find out more on how you can support our local art scene.
