1. Tea Time & Summer Meetings with H&M Home

    Tea and cupcakes -H&M Home, Venus Et Fleur by Fashionable Hostess

    I have been so busy the last few weeks working on new partnerships and planning events, which has meant tons of meetings. So while many people prefer to have their back and forths via email or over the phone, I always prefer to have mine in person, and whenever possible, in my home. Why my house and not some trendy coffee shop? Because my house is a reflection of the Fashionable Hostess brand {so of course I throw a tour in the mix} but also because I take the opportunity to set up a cute spread for us to enjoy! Remember I…

  2. Behind the Scenes & Party Prep: Bellinis & Blooms Party

    Lush flower arrangements by Crowns by Christy via Fashionable Hostess at the Bellinis and Blooms Party in Miami

    Today I am excited to share a first look behind the scenes at the Bellini’s & Blooms Event I hosted with Christy of Crowns by Christy at my new house in Miami. I used to throw blogger parties all the time in my New York City apartment, so I thought a flower crown themed party with all sorts of delicious appetizers and cocktails would be a great way to introduce myself to the blogger community here in Miami. I asked Christy to co-host because she is the ultimate flower guru; from arrangements, to garlands, to her specialty, flower crowns, I knew she would be…

  3. Dinner Party Spotlight Series: Kelley Nan

    Kelley Nan Tablescape for Fashionable Hostess2

    For my next Dinner Party Spotlight I am excited to share this gorgeous and elegant summer tablescape created by the talented home decor & entertaining blogger Kelley Nan. A long time fan of Kelley’s home, tablescapes, and instagram, I always commented on her photos with awe…and  since then our friendship has grown {all online actually, we have never even met! Gotta love the power of social media!}. So when Kelley agreed to be the next spotlight feature with a special table she created for FH, I was over the moon! Read along for my Q & A with Kelley because…

  4. Summer Wine & Cheese Night

    Summer - How to Host a Chic Wine & Cheese Night by Fashionable Hostess.jpg 8

    Over the long weekend, I am looking forward to spending leisurely nights sipping wine and eating cheese out on the deck with my family. While I love to keep nights like these casual, I still have my list of essentials for a gorgeous and delicious spread. So today I partnered with Sterling Vineyards Wines to create this picture perfect scene. A huge fan of their wine for some time now {you may remember I featured their Brut on FH here}, I can’t get enough of their Sauvignon Blanc for summer. It is so light, crisp, and dry {or more technically as…

  5. 4th of July Hostess List

    fourth of july party essentials by Fashionable Hostess

    This 4th of July is extra special because I will be spending it with all of my siblings and their significant others, and being one of five that all live in different cities, this is no easy task. So to make the Holiday fun and festive I have done my homework shopping for the perfect party supplies {and I am not talking tacky red white and blue!}. How stunning and unique are these round pool towels from Neiman Marcus, and these anchor ice cube moulds – dying!! And if you don’t have a bar cart yet, it’s time to cave…
