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!

Sleepy foliage and baby buds poke their heads out to check to see if Spring has sprung. The awakening is universal and speaks to my soul as it gathers all the beauty it can contain.

Be it in the form of birds, flowers, dishes or beautiful food and drink…my soul always says Yes to Spring! 

Be in Joy!

Colors of Springtime 

I spent the day browsing at Macy’s and discovered the beautiful pastels of kitchenware!

I love painting with these colors as well as decorating my home with soft blush like beauty.

Afternoon Tea just seems to taste better in a pink teacup or poured from a pretty pink teapot! This lovely teapot by Pinky Up! is my newest love and is offered as our Afternoon Tea Party Hostess gift.

Do you have a favorite color that speaks Spring to you?
