This year, I'm determined to make up for it- and when this beautiful, summery anniversary dinner party arrived in our inbox I knew I found my inspiration! Be sure to check out all the pretty details captured by Cheryl McEwan in the...

Ones that are dripping in delicious details every which way you turn. And if you like...

With the weather on the rise, outdoor fetes on the horizon, and Cinco de Mayo here in full force, it just made sense for us to revisit one of our favourite themed parties to date.

Butchery 101 + Elegant Dinner Party

Boy do we have a treat for you! Not only is renowned chef Herve Riou and  his fiancee, owner of Naturally Delicious, letting us peek at a typical Sunday dinner in their Brooklyn abode, they're also sharing their entire menu.  From cocktail to dessert, it may not be for the faint of heart, but what it lacks in ease it makes up for tenfold in flavor!

St. Patrick’s Day Dinner Party

In my experience, St. Patrick's Day typically encompasses two things: pancake breakfasts and green beer. In recent years, I've since grown out of the messiness of St. Patty's day's past, but still love the idea of commemorating the celebration in some fashion. Enter: Stacie Shea's elegant dinner party. All of the Irish-inspired fun, grown-up style! Captured by Jen Lynne...

How To Entertain in a Small Space

I happen to live in a smaller home, and when it comes to entertaining it often takes some serious creativity to make an event go off without a hitch. This shoot was inspired by entertaining for the holidays in a small space. The key is to take advantage of every square inch available, and don't be afraid to go buffet style. Don't be fooled, you can still entertain in style without having a formal sit down dinner! For more, head on over to my blog...
