PSA: The Flower District

Sometimes I think there’s a place you’ve just got to know about and my Public Service Announcements (PSAs) will give you the full skinny. One of the items on my Spring Checklist was to check out the flower district.  I didn’t come back with a bouquet since I wasn’t going straight home afterwards, but I…

At the Table: Passover 2016

I went simple for Passover this year.  I didn’t have the time to work on an elaborate floral centerpiece or place settings.  I ended up doing all the cooking in one day instead of splitting it up into two, so I didn’t want to stress about having a fancy tablescape on top of all that.…

Inspiration Station: When Harry Met Sally

The Dish: I’m a goofball and will often break into weird accents, especially if I’m hanging around my best friend, Matt.  That’s why the the scene when Harry and Sally are chatting in the Met is one of the most endearing to me.  They are so comfortable with each other that they can talk like…

Wedding planning has been progressing at rabid speed.  There are plenty of things I thought I could wait to do, but apparently that’s not an option.  Savannah has become a major destination wedding spot, with April being one of the most popular months.  I don’t get any sort of preferential treatment being a local/native, so…

At the Table: Passover

Passover, like Easter, is the holiday that heralds the spring season.  I like to make sure my tablescape represents the chipper vibes of the season.  That means bright colors.  I made a simple centerpiece with an old moonshine jar, twine, and these fushia dried flowers.  The best thing about this centerpiece is that since the flowers…

30 Before 30: #23 – Organize My Closets Like a Big Girl

Some of my 30 Before 30 items have taken longer to cross off the list because I haven’t had the opportunity.  But then there are items like this one, which haven’t happened simply because I’ve procrastinated.  Organize my closets?  Boringggggg.  You may ask why I put something like this on the list in the first…

Last week was bad.  This week is better.  I’m happy with that progress. Before heading to Bronxville for her shower, Kathleen suggested we meet for a glass of champagne – it was a celebration, after all!  Since we were leaving out of Grand Central, we thought there was no better place to meet than the…

At The Table: Prohibition Party

When I realized how much money I was spending on food for my Prohibition Party, I put myself on a tight budget for the decorations.  I propped books from the era (“The Great Gatsby” and “The Beautiful and Damned”) at the ends of the buffet and draped a white boa and silver beads everywhere.  On…

Like last week, this week has been incredibly busy.  I decided to cancel my event on Tuesday so I could have some time de-stress and run some much-needed errands.  Sure, I missed a movie screening, but the time playing catch-up was exactly what I needed.  Plus, I am FULLY in the Holiday spirit now.  The…

3 on Thursday

In the two weeks before the holiday break, I only have one night free.  I love all of the fun plans, but it is exhausting to have something every.  single.  night.  I’ve been so busy that I wasn’t even able to post to this site yesterday.  I’ve started leaving early and passing on the alcohol…
