To Do // Trim the Tree

Friday, November 29, 2013
Texas siren Jayne Mansfield trims a tree in true bombshell fashion. This is exactly what we wear too, of course.

We're sure you're stuffed and never want to see another turkey...until Christmas that is. Pop a bottle of champagne and get in the Christmas spirit while trimming the tree with our Christmas Playlist.

Treat // Pumpkins + Pecans

Wednesday, November 27, 2013

What are the holidays without a crunchy treat or a fabulous bread pudding (especially if it involves pumpkin)? We've tried our hand at several recipes over the years, but we absolutely love these scrumptious goodies from Wendy Krispin. These would make perfect hostess gifts or additions to a bountiful buffet. The best part? If you don't have time to work in the kitchen, Wendy and her incredible staff can do the hard work for you. For more info on Wendy Krispin Caterer, visit her website

Tabletop Tuesday // The Power of Simplicity

The power of simplicity perfectly captured for a Meadows Museum Donor Dinner.
 Sometimes all you really need for a stunning tabletop are a few simple silver patterns and exquisite crystal or glass. The power of simplicity is  perfectly captured at a donor dinner for SMU's Meadow Museum with a concept created by Marin Fiske-Rankin, Meadows Events and Food Service Manager. Marin wanted an impressive display without making it too formal, so she scaled back from a full tabletop to hand-picked pieces that would stand out when handled by the guest yet blended effortlessly with a vibrant linen from La Tavola and the landscape of the room. As always, we think Marin captured the essence of the evening beautifully. This look could easily translate to an elegant holiday tabletop or winter place setting. Read more about Marin and her process on her blog.

This cold winter weather has us channeling one of our favorite movie stars - Anjelica Huston, shown above in a 1973 editorial for Yves Saint Laurent. She pulls off all the right seasonal tones, which we would also translate to tabletop. So if you're thinking high glamour and sophisticated holiday place settings, create your own textured tabletop with furs and velvet elements.
