Entertaining with Two Chicks Cocktails


November 25, 2020
During these times of COVID-19, our “go-to date night” for a special occasion has become hosting another couple for dinner on our patio. Tonight, in celebration of the holidays, I wanted to create a romantic display with a beautiful floral centerpiece for us and our closest friends.  Hosting and cooking, even for four, can be a “to-do” for a busy...

Pear & Cheese Board

with Cabot Cheese


November 24, 2020
New Season of Flavor For today’s beautiful cheese board I swapped my everyday cheddars for new flavorful combinations from Cabot Cheese like “Garlic & Dill cheddar” and my personal favorite “Wildly Horseradish Cheddar.” I sliced and cubed my cheeses and paired them back to a pretty selection of pears, green olives, macadamia nuts, and a garnish of ruscus (which are the beautiful...

Happy Hanukkah! I am so excited to share my Hanukkah table for 2020. Similar to my 2019 table {here}, I created a beautiful display with a classic blue and white color story. Some swaps I made were with these gorgeous blue votives I placed down the center of my table and my Villeroy & Boch blue Boston Goblets {which are...

Our Blue & White Christmas Tree


November 20, 2020
Beautiful Blues Every time I walk past our dining room I can’t help but smile. I am in love with how this blue and white holiday story came out!! Rather than loading up the ornaments, I only used ones in white and soft shades of blue, and paired back to the sparkling snow on my 7 1/2 foot Frontgate tree, and it...

Two-Tiered Harvest Cheese Board

Last Minute Additions to your Thanksgiving


November 18, 2020
Feeling Thankful Thanksgiving is the perfect time to serve up a hearty appetizer spread packed with like salami, cheeses, nuts, and olives, but equally as important are all the toppings from Grey Poupon Dijon mustard to dip your salami, to Truffle Honey to dip your cheeses, and dried cranberries (because they are pretty and festive!!). Here I styled my appetizer...

Thanksgiving Centerpiece


November 18, 2020
As I mentioned in my latest post (which was a video – so I hope you watched!!), Thanksgiving is not just one meal for most of us, but rather a weekend spent with family. So in addition to the main event, prepping for all the meals in between is equally as important. Because the kitchen can be such a highly...

My Favorite Glass Trees, Reindeers, and More in Gold


November 16, 2020
Gold Decadence I am having so much fun sprinkling Holiday decor throughout the house and I wanted to share this gold story I created on a coffee table in our foyer. I added glass and mercury trees, gold reindeer, oversized ornaments, and endless twinkle lights, and gosh it makes me smile every time I walk in the front door. I...
