A few months back I was asked by one of my absolute favorite brands, Ballard Designs, to create three distinct holiday looks and I’m thrilled to be sharing the pictures from the first of three with you all today, my harvest dinner.  Inspired by my favorite season fall, and playing off of Mother Nature’s natural beauty I think you’ll find this setting rich, warm, cozy, and the perfect table to gather friends and family around.  Head over to Ballard’s Blog, How To Decorate, to read more about the inspiration plus I’m sharing all of my tips and tricks so you can host a harvest dinner of your very own.  TGIF Loves!  Truly, MKR

A Blooming Easter Tablescape

When creating the look for my Easter tablescape I knew I wanted everything to be very natural and feel like I literally brought the outdoors in.  To accomplish that idea I enlisted the help of my friend, and amazing florist Lindsay Coletta.  Lindsay is known for her flowing, organic arrangements which are largely made up of foraged flowers and plants.  I accented Lindsay’s wildflowers with a mix of patterned and textured plates, Lush Cakery’s there-are-no-words-its-that-good coconut cake, and a boozy peach lemonade cocktail.  Recipe coming Monday!  So with my table set tell me, will you be hosting Easter dinner this Sunday?  truly, MKR

A Southern Thanksgiving

Filed Under > Holiday Entertaining

You may have heard through a little bird, or a very loud bird called Twitter, that I’ve joined SMP Living as one of their newest editors.  Eeek!  And I thought what better way to kick off this new partnership/love affair, than with my Southern Thanksgiving captured by the talented Rustic White.

In the South few things are held as high as tradition and family. And what’s more traditional than gathering around a Thanksgiving table with family and friends to feast on the season’s bounty?  Inspired by my love for a classic Thanksgiving, I combined rich browns and oranges with an unexpected twist of coral and sage greens to create a picturesque Southern table.  Pomegranate’s Aviary patterned linens, pom pom placemats and napkins were the ideal backdrop for my faux bois and gourd patterned plates, rose gold silverware, and feathered napkin rings.  I finished the tablescape with ivory candles along with fresh florals in burgundy, orange, and green.

The centerpiece, a smoked turkey (courtesy of my Big Green Egg), was presented on a monogrammed platter.  I accompanied the star of the show with side dishes like sweet potato au gratin, green bean casserole, and foccacia with chestnut stuffing housed in my fabby Staub pumpkin cocette.  I’ll be sharing all of the recipes this week and next so you can be ready for Thanksgiving Day, but in the mean time I’ve teamed up with SMP and Pomegranate for a little giveaway to help you recreate this entire look.  One lucky winner will receive $460 worth of Pomegranate Linens…
