4th of July Inspiration

Hi all!  We are gearing up for the 4th over here.  That means I have run to the store about 4 times in a 24-hour period!  We are going to a local parade in our neighborhood that I have gone to since I was a baby, and the barbecuing and swimming with friends.  I thought I would share some fun red, white and blue inspired tables settings.  Maybe you can whip something up tomorrow or file this one away until next year.

New Years Table Inspiration

Hello friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.  I sure did.  In fact, I think I had too much fun and now a terrible cold has kicked in.  While I normally don’t go to crazy for New Years, I might not be doing much of anything unless I feel better.

I will have to live vicariously through these inspiring New Years Eve tables.  I apologize in advance for the sequins and glitter overload!

Sacred Heart School Holiday Home Tour 2015

Hi friends!!  I couldn’t let the weekend go by without telling you about a fun event coming up for you who live in Northern California.  If you are a local reader, you must check out the Sacred Heart Holiday Home Tour.  If you are not familiar with the tour, it features 5 elegantly decorated homes in East Sacramento’s historic Fabulous 40’s neighborhood.  It is a fundraiser for the Sacred Heart Parish School.  The tour runs from December 4th through the 6th and tickets are $30 in advance and $35 at the door.

I am telling you the homes this year are amazing and have something to please any design aesthetic.  Here are the homes on the tour this year.
