Something Blue…Part I

Filed Under > Entertaining

Back in October I had the pleasure of creating a winter wedding for Occasions Magazine. With my obsession of ginger jars and all things blue in full swing I knew when coming up with a concept that’s where I would start.  The Swan House at the Atlanta History Museum provided the perfect backdrop, complete with a blue door.  The table, a combination of blue sequins and stripes with a mix of Juliska tableware and white florals was flanked by two navy chairs perfect for the bride and groom.  And the cake, well where do I begin?  Layers of ombre ruffles came off simple yet over the top.  

Tomorrow I’ll be sharing all of the fashion and bridal details, which you won’t want to miss since Chanel fingerless driving gloves are involved.  And to give you a little sneak peek Hampton Road Studios captured the day just perfectly via video below.  

Lastly, but most importantly, I couldn’t have pulled any of this off without my crazy talented team.  I am truly blessed and humbled to work with such creatives on a regular basis.  Love you guys!  truly, MKR

This Week I…

Filed Under > Uncategorized

…hosted a fabby giveaway with Pomegranate & Style Me Pretty Living…today’s the last day to enter Loves!  Click HERE.

…spent my Saturday at Calypso St. Barth with my gal pal Paris and Covenant House giving back to the community and shopping for a great cause.  I may have picked up THIS & THIS while I was there…(there’s a reason I don’t work in retail, I wouldn’t make any money!).  And don’t forget today is the last day to bring in a gently used sweater to any of your local Calyspo St. Barths and receive 20% off any new sweater.

…adored this New York Times article about Instagram.  “If Twitter is the street, Facebook the suburban-sprawl mall, and Pinterest some kind of mail-order catalog, Instagram is the many-windowed splendor of a younger Bergdorf’s, showing all we possess or wish for, under squares of filtered glass, each photographic pane backlit 24/7. ”

…oooooooh’d and ahhhhhhh’d over these DIY advent calendars.  The mini trees??!  I mean adorable!

…decided my front door wouldn’t be complete without THIS for the Holiday.

…registered for the Design Bloggers conference in March.  Anyone else attending?

…added so much Holiday to The Shop, including a little “Gift Wrap Wonderland” section.

…teamed up with Bloomingdaels and my absolute fave, Juliska for a Holiday entertaining event.  The red country estate, I mean I really can’t handle how amazing it is.  I paired it with their pewter and a red plaid table runner and jute accents for a more modern take.  P.S. today is the last day to take 20% off everything, code FF13.

…read the most tragic, but ah inspiring story.  The human spirit, and ability to re-build is really mind blowing.

…restocked some of our most popular items just in time for the Holidays including THIS, THIS & THESE.

…prepared for a season full of Moscow Mules with West Elm.

…loved Anna’s re-cap Part 1 of the Brand Market Workshop, and loved that I was lucky enough to be a part of the magical day.  Happy Sunday Loves!  truly, MKR

DIY Fruit & Rosemary Punch Bowl Ice Ring, Waiting On Martha

Punch is back big time and what better way to jazz up your next party than with a fancy-schmancy punch bowl ice ring?  Of course what you put in your ice ring will depend on what your punch actually is, but for our Woodland Wonderland dinner I filled my ice ring with blueberries, raspberries, oranges, and rosemary and added it to a bowl full of champagne.  By keeping it simple with champagne it allowed the fruits and herbs of the ice ring to truly shine.  So TGIF my Loves, and Cheers!  Truly, MKR
