Sneak Peek – DIY Decadence

photo (3)

Here’s a little teaser of my favorite table for tomorrow’s DIY Decadence Soiree…

A melange of delicious blush pink peony, parrot tulips, ranunculus, mini callas and more.

I could eat it up.

Gigi – do you see the beautiful, metallic flame stitch linen?  You KNOW how much I adore a good classic flame stitch, after shopping for your pair of wingback chairs together 30+ years ago…it always reminds me of you.

Now, just you WAIT til you see the rest.

No kidding – it’s been a very tricky week, to say the least.  First 6 flights cancelled home from east coast, then days spent cleaning and setting store for party, only for a pipe to burst in the polar vortex deep freeze, creating a total wet dirty disaster throughout the store.

So, we’re jumping for joy that we’ve recovered, reset, redone, designed, and are party ready.

Phewy – see you tomorrow for Sunday Brunch, diy style.
