Happy Saturday, friends. I hope you had a great week! The past few days flew by quickly over here. My workshop earlier this week exceeded expectations and I’ll post about the class soon, but in case you missed it I uploaded some sneak peeks here and here. Speaking of sneak peeks, I snapped this picture this morning while setting up for my Oscar Party this weekend. By popular request, we’ve turned it into a black-tie affair so I guess I should make myself presentable instead of watching in sweats with a bowl of popcorn? Here in NYC many of us don’t have a ton of space to entertain so my dear friend came over to help me rearrange and make sure all 15 of us will have a seat to watch the show. As always, he came up with brilliant interior set up ideas – like making sure everyone has a place to set their drink while I mostly thought about clever cocktails… we make a good team. My apartment is “Oscar Party Ready” and I can’t wait to spend the evening munching on Silver Lining Sliders, Pizzas of the Southern Wild, Lincoln Logs, and Argo-Choke dip. (Lame puns for our Oscar-foods?) I’ll share recipes soon, but in the meanwhile let me know what your plans are for the Oscars!
A few inspiring things I stumbled on this week:
- I’m loading up on dessert ideas for D’s BD next month. I may bake one of these cakes unless anyone has another tasty idea?
- THANK YOU for all of your lovely notes and sweet comments about my articles featured on HGTV and Huff Post last week! You all are so sweet!
- If you share a mutual
loveobsession for avocados, you must check out Camille and Chanel’s delicious recipe round-up.
- What took me so long to discover Elle Lauri’s clothing line? I’m obsessed with every item.
- I had no idea it was National Grapefruit month, but my friend Clara inspired me to try Ina’s Pink Grapefruit Margarita.
