RATTAN ROUNDUP

Taking a quick break from ignoring the mountain of laundry glaring at me from the corner of my living room to hop on here and share a few pretties for summer! If you’ve been following along for a while, you know that rattan and wicker are two of my favorite ways to accessorize for the…

RED, WHITE + BLUE FAVORITES FOR THE 4TH

The Fourth of July is this weekend already, and we are ready to celebrate with a bevy of red, white and blue decorations, good food and, hopefully, amazing weather! I’m not usually the biggest fan of red, but this time of year, I love to display small pops of it in full force, alongside navy,…

LAST MINUTE FATHER’S DAY GIFT IDEAS

After having been on a pretty steady blogging kick, I hadn’t meant to take a hiatus from posting as it turned out, but I’m back today to share some fabulous last minute finds for Father’s Day this weekend (all of which will make it in time if you shop today!) My husband is admittedly the…

SUMMER INSPIRATION

Just popping in quick to share some summer inspiration in the form of cedar shake beauties, lots of garden goodness, lacquered Dutch doors, pea gravel drives and subtle nautical details (naturally). The past few weeks it seems like there’s been a lot of repetition in my Instagram feed, so I’ve been reverting to the folders…

GET THE LOOK: SAG HARBOR SPRING TABLE SETTING

I asked on Instagram last weekend what kind of posts you’d like to see here on the blog and an overwhelming number of you requested more table settings with sources for getting a similar look! I feel like I post quite a few of my settings on a regular basis, but if more is what…

REAL VS. FAUX BAMBOO FLATWARE

After posting this faux bamboo flatware set in my post last week, I got a ton of questions about how close to the real version this was, as well as the quality of the two and whether or not the fake version was what I post in my tablescapes or not. Since I have both…

GIFT IDEAS FOR MOM

Every year, Mother’s Day seems to creep up on me and this year is no exception. Over the weekend, while searching for something for my own momma, I found a bunch of fabulous pieces that would make great gift ideas, so I thought I’d round them all up in a post here! For me, the…

CHARMING CHARLESTON: WINDOW BOX PERFECTION

We’re planning a quick weekend trip back to the Holy City before the blazing heat hits and, since I have gardens and landscaping on my mind 24/7 lately, I thought I’d share some snaps from some of the most beautiful window boxes from our favorite city! I’ve posted pics from our trips before but I’m…

OUTDOOR FAVORITES FOR SPRING + SUMMER

Spring is on its way out the door, as the heat and humidity are quickly on their way in, so we are currently all about cleaning up the yard, flower beds and waiting patiently for the last of the pollen to clear so we can power wash the exterior and move full-on into summer mode!…

INSPIRED: THOMAS O’BRIEN’S INCREDIBLE GARDENS IN BELLPORT

As we finish cleaning up our garden beds and prepping the yard for the summer season, I’m constantly soaking up all the garden and landscape inspiration. At the top of my list of gardens and yards to ogle is the incredible Bellport property of designer Thomas O’Brien, whose home was featured in Frederic Magazine last…

MY FAVORITE TIRAMISU RECIPE

Tiramisu is my hubby’s all-time favorite dessert and since this is really the only sweet treat he will eat, I’ve been trying to find the perfect recipe for the past few years and I’ve finally landed it! I’ve been making this for special occasions, deployment homecomings and just because, for a few years now and…

USING FLOWER FROGS FOR ARRANGEMENTS

I’ve been arranging blooms far longer than I’ve known what a flower frog is, but ever since I discovered them, they’ve been a favorite must-have for gorgeous arrangements and centerpieces! A flower frog is made out of glass, pottery or metal with a bunch of holes in the top and which is made to sit…
