LA DOLCE VITA!

Major party envy today!  I wish that I had been playing host for this super fun and relaxed cocktail party that my friend recently threw at her gorgeous home.  By way of background, my friend asked me if I could help her organize an "un-birthday party" to toast to her husband's (and her own!) recent […]



TENNIS ANYONE?

It's hard to beat a late summer evening at the U.S. Open:  the feverish excitement coursing through the crowd, the fabulous people watching, the stylish souvenir selection and -of course- the electrifying tennis!

This year, to properly usher in "The Open" (and as a belated milestone birthday celebration for her racket-sport-loving husband), my dear friend […]

ROYAL WEDDING REDUX

My friends and I were so excited to take in the Royal Wedding together -- […]



SOME LIKE IT HOT

The yankee stronghold of Greenwich, Connecticut is an unlikely locale for a legitimate, Texas-style chili cook off, but last year it played host to one (at my house, anyway!) after a debate among some displaced Southerners over who makes the best chili evolved into the first annual "Greenwich Chili Cup" -- a coveted culinary honor.

LUCK BE A LADY TONIGHT

So you're sold on the idea of celebrating St. Patrick's Day but you're struggling to see a way forward that does NOT involve green bagels, food coloring in beer, a menu that features corned beef and cabbage or extensive footage from Riverdance.  Fear not.  There is a more elegant solution.  Namely, a "Lady Luck" dinner […]



DRAMA FREE OSCAR PARTY

FACT: It is way more fun to chuckle at the opening monologue, gloss over awkward acceptance speeches and review ball gowns with your friends than it is to watch the Oscar telecast all by your lonesome.  Just think, this year could mark a throwback to that bygone era when Red Carpet magic was made before […]
