Friday–Entertaining:  Just a week away from Valentine’s Day, so I pulled together a board on Pinterest with some of the best ideas for entertaining, gift giving, and celebrating those we hold close to our hearts!  Enjoy the inspiration!

Is this not the coolest cocktail?  It’s called the Love Potion #9!!!  I found it on The Cookie Rookie website and can hardly wait to try it!

I also loved this sweet table setting by Rue Magazine.  Even just the simple touch of folding the napkin into a heart shape makes all the difference!

Friday–Entertaining:  Loving the music room we’re designing for our clients.  We found inspiration in a peacock feather for the color palette in the textiles.  Still a work in progress, but loving the process!



Friday–Entertaining:  I know it might feel a little early, but the holidays will be here before you know it and I think October is a great time to start prepping for overnight guests.  Even if you just add a few special items to your guest room, you don’t have to break the bank to make your holiday company feel welcome.  Thought I would share a few simple ideas with you that I like to do for our guests.

1.  Stock up on beauty essentials in case your friends left theirs at home or they want to try out new products…


2.  Nothing says welcome to your guests more than fresh flowers.  Pick up a plant or fresh flowers and place on the dresser or nightstand…


3.  Frame a photo of you and your guest and place it on the nightstand…


4.  Add stack of books for them to curl up and read…


5.  Add a colorful throw


Friday–Entertaining:  Have you been to Walnut Creek lately???  I can’t get over the changes in Broadway Plaza, not to mention all of the new restaurants.  7×7.com recently did a  write up on some great culinary adventures to be had there, so I thought I’d share it with you.  Hope you can sneak away this weekend to try one of these fun new spots.

Friday–Entertaining:  In addition to the wedding gift tips I shared yesterday, I gathered up some of my favorite ideas for ways to decorate, games to play and food to eat for a bridal brunch.  There are so many beautiful things on Pinterest and all over the web, but below are images of things that really stood out to me.  Hope they give you a little inspiration!

Friday–Entertaining:  If you want to make something really special for Father’s Day, you should definitely think about ordering some Flannery Steaks for him.  The owner, Bryan, has been in the butcher business his entire life and his dedication to his trade shows in the quality of his products.  You can buy almost any cut you want and have it delivered.  They do gift certificates or even packages in gift boxes.  So you could either order ahead of time to make a special Father’s Day dinner or you could send them as an actual gift for Father’s Day.  Either way, I think any dad would love to be given a great big ‘ol steak from Flannery Beef!
