A Matter of Manners

Life seems to go as fast as a text or tweet some say. Other times it can be as slow as a snail mail letter. A simple magic word… be it please, thank you, you’re welcome or excuse me can make all the difference! After all… Manners do matter.

MACARON Mondays

As the leaves turn colors I am reminded of the passage of time. It seems like yesterday I opened a Victorian Tearoom in Seattle. This is the season if you love all things good and beautiful to be inspired and renewed. 

Stop by for Macaron Mondays at the Belle Meade Plantation Gift Boutique every Monday to satisfy your sweet tooth! 

As I bake strawberry chocolate chip cookies I’m reminded now is a good time to tap into the memories of something warm and wonderful! 

XOXO,

Time For Tea

The leaves are beginning to fall from the trees and we yet witness another new season coming. I pulled out my favorite tea canister to make room for my new favorite!


My summer has been well spent with Macarons, Scones and Tea Tours but now I’m preparing to rest and welcome Autumn as she peeks at us. Are you ready for your new season?

Party Time Prep

Spring is one of my favorite seasons and it is the perfect moment for me to have a party! The Kentucky Derby party I plan is always exciting and gives me the opportunity to go to my cutting garden for a fun bouquet or two. 


With party preparation comes times for testing and tasting food and drink recipes! I enjoy sharing my simple recipes with my guests and also give them a gift of my Designer Macarons. 


Of course someone gets a little carried away with the Mint Juleps but I’ll give him a pass for being a great helper!

Remember…planning a simple and elegant party is all in the details! 

XOXO
