We LOVE our cocktail hour around here! And so what if we do? Do we talk about it too much? Too bad. These mamas need a drink at the end of the day!
Ok so how about when we are having friends over? The easiest way to entertain especially if you’ve had a long day…wine and cheese. Pop open a bottle of your favorite wine and set out some cheese, olives, grapes and crackers. And these slate boards from Brooklyn Slate make it that easy. You get a soap stone to write the name of your cheese and a knife to cut it!
We love these French cheese cocktail plates for easy nibbling. And we adore these cloth napkins from Folk and Faro.

I don’t like brunch…said no one ever!
Seriously speaking…I actually don’t love eggs. I’ve had to get really creative in making them enjoyable for myself.
What better way to ensure salty and tasty goodness? Brie!
Melty, oozy, delicious brie.
Check it out…
Easy Brie-zy Omelette
1 cup of egg whites (I use the already separated kind)
2 slices of smoked salmon
1-2 slices of Brie
Pea shoots (or you could use spinach, arugula etc)
1 Tsp Mustard (I used dill mustard, any grainy kind will do)
1 Tsp Coconut Oil
Oil up the pan on Medium-low heat
Fill the pan with your egg whites, for about 2 minutes (use your judgment here)
Fill the Omelette with the brie, fold and flip eggs onto the other side
After about a minute your eggs should be ready to “dress”
Top with a thin layer of mustard, smoked salmon and pea shoots
Brunch is served!
When throwing a shower there’s no reason not to keep it super simple. Less is more. White is chic.
We recently styled a shoot for a wedding shower and took a stab at a few Chex Party Mix recipes to serve up and I gotta tell you something…um, wow. I developed a major addiction.
While Michelle slaved away with Marshmallow fluff in the kitchen…I was trying to set the scene. But the sweet and saucy smell drew me in and I soon found myself knee deep in The Wedding Day Chex Mix.
To serve we found the most adorable letter bowls to spell out XO.
From the cupboard we had an old square of fabric which we turned into a triangle runner.
To drink we used shatterproof champagne glasses. Ready to toast the bride to be!
Have you ever tried the Sofia Coppola cans of champagne? They are the cutest.
What’s a party without stripe-y straws? I mean c’mon. Don’t.
My favorite thing about a shower? A good favor. Cartons of that Wedding Day Chex Mix, Yes please. Tie it with a fat piece of hot pink ribbon and there you go. Thanks for coming!
Of course if you are having a shower in the NYC area and need a photographer….we will tell you to call on Raquel. She was the darling photographer of the photos you see in this post today.
