Setting the Table from Start to Finish

July 10, 2018

By now you know that I love a pretty table, especially one adorned with lots of flowers and candles.   I thought it might be a fun change of pace to talk about how I think about setting the table, and at the bottom, there’s a video of the entire process of getting ready for the evening with friends. We were so lucky to be able to pick up fresh flowers and produce from the market in St. Tropez on Saturdays…

France Nights: Dinner Al Fresco

June 5, 2018

Sorry to have missed our collecting post yesterday — we’re planning a double for next week because two topics were getting intertwined and I wanted to make it a longer/more extended/informative post.   Will and I went to the Jas Des Robert this last Sunday which is an open air antique market.   We arrived all too late with our baby in tow but are planning to return next week to see more because it was amaaaaazing, full of silver and glass,…

Collector’s Corner: Glassware Favorites

April 30, 2018

It’s no surprise that I love to set the table.   I often use the glasses from my grandmother’s house in England which are our everyday — she bought so many that we all have a set.   They are simple, thin-rimmed wine glasses with an elegant shape.   I haven’t been able to find a similar set, but I think that it’s easy to use the same principal of having your foundation glassware and then padding it with fun finds: colored glass,…

Dream Life: Tropical Dinner By The Pool!!

March 22, 2018

Ah, another Charleston paradise!!   I have always fantasized about having a large garden with a palm-tree lined pool here in town and this is just the ticket.    Sitting right on South Battery, this large pink lady is a dream come true (and it’s also for sale!).   We felt so lucky to continue our exploration of the beautiful gardens downtown here and were so delighted to meet another LOVELY owner :).   This pool would be such fun to lay next…
