Great parties are in my roots. My female ancestors have instilled in me that a good party is always in the budget, and cabinet space for storage of proper hostessing tools is a minor issue.

Holiday Sangria. Beautiful drink to serve your guests!

Simple Sangria Recipe — Decor and the Dog

It's that time of year again. The time where you have to find a way to deal with your family so you turn to booze. I kid. I kid. I do, however, love to celebrate the holidays with a tasty sangria. I love sangria because it's usually sweet and doesn't taste like alcoho

Cheese and Fruit Tray: How-To - SevenLayerCharlotte

I had a small catering job last week for a meeting for a group of women. The meeting was mid-afternoon, and they wanted some hors d’oeuvres that would be pretty and nice, but not too heavy. One of the items I proposed to them was a Fall cheese and fruit tray, and I was thrilled …

A southern secret-  a blue ceiling on the porch keeps the mosquitos away, the color also keeps wasps from building nests and spiders from weaving webs overhead.

Spring Bar Cart Styling: a mint, pink and gold bar cart display for spring!

Spring Bar Cart Styling

I'm a little bit obsessed with my bar cart. As the only piece of furniture in our apartment that belongs to us, I try to make sure it screams "me". I wanted to give it a fresh update for spring, after it had been pretty vacant since taking down the holiday decor. I decided to go with one of my favorite color combos of mint, pink and gold, which is also vaguely reminiscent of our wedding day. You may be wondering why that mystery liquid in the dispenser looks a little creepy, but it's…

How to Build the Perfect Bar Cart - Swoon Worthy

As you are probably aware from my own home, I’m a massive fan of the bar cart. Okay, so we don’t generally have lots of wild parties at our (old) age. However, when we do have guests, it certainly provides a talking point and when we don’t, it’s a great place to display my vintage […]

These three recipes are foolproof, with Perrier, gin and jam as the only ingredients you need for delicious cocktails.

Pin of the Week: Tequila-Soaked Watermelon Wedges

Tequila-Soaked Watermelon Wedges Recipe

This grown-up fruit dessert borrows flavors from margaritas. Tequila and Triple Sec infuse the watermelon slices, which also get a spray of lime juice and a sprinkling of coarse salt. The longer the watermelon soaks, the more flavorful it becomes -- one more reason to save any leftover slices.
