1. Flamingo Print

    One of our favorite parts of living in the Flatiron District in New York is our short walk to Madison Square Park. It’s our go-to for spring and summer time outings. Whether it’s playing on the playground, throwing pennies in the fountain, or having a picnic. Since Reese has gotten older she refuses to get in the stroller to go to the park, demanding to walk, and right before my eyes has become a true New Yorker. At 2 and a half she knows to stop at each cross walk and wait for the white cross walk signal to appear,…

When she heard about having space for pretty pillows and endless stuffed…

Heat the oven to 350 and cook on a non-stick baking pan for 10-12 minutes. Or, serve at room temperature and slice mini ‘pizza slices’ for guests on cute dessert plates with extra dried fruit on top!…

  4. Garden Party with Villeroy & Boch

    I was so excited to partner with one of my favorite dinnerware company’s Villeroy & Boch at their NYC Showroom for the #VBGardenParty. The brand wanted to showcase their stunning Anmut Flowers collection to some of New York’s top bloggers and editors and I was the perfect fit to help them throw a fabulous party. Together we came up with a garden party theme equipped with floral plates, bright glasses, and a beautiful mimosa station. After an overview of the brand {which has been around since the 1700’s!}, attendees could tour the showroom’s wide span of collections. {Some of my favorites include the…
