The Perfect Dinner Party Menu

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...

Vintage Inspired Luncheon

They say that inspiration comes from everywhere. From a pretty painting or a scrap of fabric to an amazing meal or a great outfit. They say that at least. But when we actually get to see a dinner party inspired by a single moment - designed by white+white weddings and events - well, it makes our heart swell to know that the sentiment is in fact...

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...
