White Forest Christmas Table Setting

White Forest Christmas Table Setting

I first started thinking about my Christmas table setting in August last summer, when I found this remnant on sale at my local fabric store. I bought it, not too sure how I was going to use it. As Christmas approached and time was flying by, I decided to go the easy way and use the fabric to make three… Continue Reading

How To Reuse The Tiny Hotel Breakfast Jam Jars

How To Reuse The Tiny Hotel Breakfast Jam Jars

Over the years, I’ve saved quite a lot of these empty tiny jam jars that often come on a hotel breakfast tray. I’ve never had a good use for them, although I’ve ~ maybe ~ used a couple to store beads or small sewing supplies, or as a mini vase for a bloom. I’ve searched on… Continue Reading

DIY Cotton Napkins With A Removable Tassel

One thought leads to another and this is how I ended up with these gorgeous dinner napkins! Over the holidays, we hosted a couple of dinner parties and I realized that I was short on napkins; I do have some white hemstitch linen napkins that are suitable for most occasions, but cotton napkins are way more convenient for semi-formal… Continue Reading

New Year’s Silver & Gold Tablescape

I hope that you all enjoyed the holidays! Shortly after Christmas, I started working on our New Year’s meal; it is the Greek tradition to continue this season’s holidays with a big celebration on January 1st, St. Basil’s Day, with family and friends, and a festive and well prepared meal! Every household that hosts on New Year’s takes time well in advance to… Continue Reading

Lemons, Limes & Flowers Table Setting

For the second weekend in a row we’re having friends over for dinner and I’m styling our dining table with the exact same decor. It’s easy to put everything together as I have all the items in my home, except maybe for the limes which I bought last minute. And because no two homes have the exact… Continue Reading

For An Easy Table Setting … Shop Your Home!

As per the Greek tradition, the first day of the year is  celebrated with family and friends, sharing a well cooked meal and cutting the New Year’s Pie (Vassilopitta) which has a hidden coin for the lucky one of the year. This year, it will only be the four of us, but this is not keeping… Continue Reading

After spending a few hours during the last weekend working on some backyard updates (see here, if you haven’t already read my previous post), it’s now time to enjoy it!  And what a better idea than inviting a couple of friends over for dinner.  That was just the motivation I needed to make some summer… Continue Reading

Pomegranate Place Cards

Pomegranate Place Cards

In Greece, pomegranates are a symbol of abundance and good luck. It’s a New Year’s tradition to have pomegranates in your house  and in some regions, even to break one on the ground, allowing the rich red and juicy seeds to come out of the fruit, thus promising a new year filled with joy. But… Continue Reading

Serving Platters With Pom Pom Trim

Serving Platters With Pom Pom Trim

Over the last couple of years, I’ve been using these cute stockings from Crate & Barrel for my Christmas table decoration.  They’re a great way to hold the silverware and they match perfectly well with my modern, yet all-time-classic, white dishes. This year, I wanted to add some more color to my Christmas table so… Continue Reading

Ribbon Napkin Rings

Ribbon Napkin Rings

Not that long ago, I shared with you how I embellished my kitchen chair cushions with ribbon (Cushion Solution). First, I’m happy to report that although these are the most used chairs of the house,  that ribbon has held up very well! For a while, I had some of that left over ribbon in my… Continue Reading
