    For my very last table setting in our Nashville home, the #TNChateauFH, I wanted todo my favorite type of tabletop, something something pink, feminine, and girly. And with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it was perfectly timed to pull it off. I partnered with Lenox to bring my vision to life with their stunning china line by Marchesa {the well known fashion house!}. The Marchesa china, specifically the pattern I chose called the Gilded Pearl Collection, brings a stunning jewelry-like texture to fine dining. Its chic, intricate borders of hand-applied enamel on white bone china are beautifully accented with gold banding. These paired back to the most gorgeous home-made flower arrangements of Juliet roses, peonies, and spray roses in soft pinks and peaches made this the girliest table I have created to date! I am so in love with this set-up… Galentine’s celebraters, take notes!

    To create this tablescape I used the Gilded Pearl 5 place table setting partnered back to Marchesa by Lenox gold flatware, Lenox gold rimmed stemware, and Lenox Tuscany martini glasses. Then I used a Lenox crystal vase for my tall flower arrangement. To add just a few girly touches, I placed mini Sugarfina candy boxes at each place setting with yummy Champagne Bubbles candy, and then took my Lenox cake stand {which I placed in the middle of the table} and stacked it more delicious Sugarfina candy options. Each guest was served a pink and fruity cocktail of pink lemonade martinis in Lenox Tuscany martini glasses. The finished look was just as pretty and feminine as I hoped it would be.

    While I am so sad to leave our Nashville home and this stunning dining room space behind, I am excited for what new adventures await us in our Miami dining room! May they be equally as girly and pretty!

  2. Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him

    valentines_fh gift guide for him

    Searching for a Valentine’s Day gift he will actually use? As I shared in yesterday’s post, I added the Art of Shaving full size kit to my list, but I have a few other things I am eyeing as well. My husband is on a total sneakers kick so I love these suede chukka boots that work from weekend days to date night, then a reversible belt in brown/black is great for his weekly office look, and then I know my husband has wanted a new rolling bag for all his travel. Shop my full list of Valentine’s Day gift ideas for him below!

  3. The Art of Shaving

    Finding a Valentine’s present for your guy can be a challenge, but this year I found the perfect gift. I wanted something my hubby would find luxurious, and that he would actually use consistently. So when my girlfriends all agreed that The Art of Shaving was a big hit with the men in their lives, I began browsing the website. Obsessed with the packaging, I also loved their philosophy that ‘shaving should be elevated from a chore to a craft’ {I mean how fun and retro is a shave brush!}! I am excited to say I found exactly what I was looking for!

    I decided to get the Full Sized Kit which includes Pre-Shave Oil, Shaving Cream, Shaving Brush and After-Shave Balm {which are all-natural}, and they come in a box great for gifting. Then I also got the Morris Park Collection Razor! My husband is all for the unscented, but the sandalwood scent is amazing too. So for those of you hunting for your gifts, definitely check this one out!
