As of late I’ve been obsessing over place settings, which is nothing but trouble. Why you ask? Because I’m learning just like shoes you can never have too many, and the ones I seem to lust after most always carry the heftiest price tag. But there is just something about the perfectly curated table, the formality and drama of it all that I can’t seem to get enough of. So just a pre-warning to my husband, I’ve begun collecting fine china, flatware (I just got the most divine set of gold flatware from One Kings Lane), stemware, and everything else that creates a beautiful tablescape. Let the entertaining begin! xoxo

Now all I need is a home in Palm Beach to accompany this tablescape…sigh.
I can’t even handle the linens…the Hermes Orange, Purples and Pinks…perfection!

Gold Flatware seems to be everywhere these days.
If you’re starting to get to know me at all you know I go weak in the knees for ANYTHING Hermes!
And while we’re at it let’s talk about the proper way to set a table. An etiquette must for any entertainer.
