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

Roasted Cauliflower with Apples & Sage, Waiting On Martha

Over the past two weeks we’ve had the pleasure of sharing the recipes from our Woodland Wonderland Dinner with Rue Magazine, (a fruit filled ice ring, roasted sweet potatoes, wintery kale salad, braised short ribs, and sweet potato creme brûlée).  But like all good things, our dinner must come to an end. And what better way to end than with a side dish to put all other side dishes to shame.  Homespun Atlanta’s roasted cauliflower with apples, cranberries, and sage.  A spot on seasonal dish that as delicious as it is easy to make.  

So enjoy and here’s to hoping at least one of these dishes (if not all) will make it on to your table this holiday season.  Truly, MKR

DIY Fruit & Rosemary Punch Bowl Ice Ring

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
