this year's best table accessories

I’ll have a side of rings with that order! Today it’s all about the RINGS... I'm talking about napkin rings, of course. These little beauties will set the tone for so many tables I'll be setting this fall and winter.  

I’ve recently acquired a few new sets of gorgeous heirloom-quality napkin rings from Vagabond House, and I’m ready to show them off...  

Starting with these gorgeous Pewter Owl Napkin Rings. These little cuties inspired me to set a chic black and white table to compliment them.  

This look is perfect all year long, but these little owls are so evocative of Halloween, I couldn’t resist leaning in that direction. 

Plus, I LOVE Halloween! Add a little pumpkin soup to the menu, and we’re all set for a lovely and cozy dinner. 

The only "fresh" accent at this table is ivy from the garden... flowing and weaving throughout the table, ivy softens the black and white palette and adds a cozy aspect to the whole tablescape.  

Here are these beauties once again, lined up and suited with some of my favorite napkins. I love the variety seen here, and next up is the Gold Bee Napkin Ring 

This is a brand-new item for Vagabond House, and the bee is such an iconic symbol, it will never go out of style.  

Isn’t this little bee napkin ring gorgeous? 

He'll be ready to go and so perfect on a holiday table.

I’ve got lots of new table setting looks lined up, including patriotic ideas for Labor Day, cozy fall looks, and fabulous Thanksgiving and Christmas tablescaping layouts.

I hope you’ll check back with me soon for more table setting fun!

my favorite summer kaftan

It's Friday, and that means another weekend ahead! I wanted to pop in today to share a little something I’m obsessed with... these adorable lightweight kaftans by Pacific & Rose. 

Pretty patterns and a choice of long or short make these pieces the perfect cover up for the pool or beach, but wait... 

My favorite place to wear mine is right here at home, while lounging around first thing in the morning or after 5 o’clock, when it’s technically cocktail hour.  

I don’t drink cocktails, but I still get the same “it’s 5 o’clock somewhere” vibe with my ice-cold highball of San Pellegrino with a twist of lime.

Say the word "kaftan" and I instantly relax and my head fills with visions of Slim Aarons prints and lounging around in some chic location like Palm Beach or the isle of Capri. 

You know I’ve mentioned Pacific & Rose before because I love using their gorgeous tablecloths, runners and napkins for my tablescapes, but they’ve recently debuted this fun line of kaftans, and I can’t get enough!  

My personal favorite is the “Mia” style, which you see above on the left. I wish you could feel the fabric because it’s so soft and lightweight and is absolutely a dream to wear during the hot summer months. 

The fabric for each of these pieces is printed by hand in Rajasthan, India. I feel like I’m wearing an ethereal work of art as I float through my house in complete comfort! 

The drawstring tie is even embellished with tiny seashells. When I do wear this out to the beach, it’s so lightweight that it dries almost instantly if it gets wet. I’ve also worn this out and about town with a simple cotton slip underneath. 

I love all the shades and patterns of the blue kaftans, but look at these other styles.... aren’t they cute? 

You can check out the whole line of Pacific & Rose Kaftans HERE, or stop by Seaside Gallery to shop at a brick and mortar location. 

I hope you’ll check back with me soon... 
I’ve got some new fun tablescapes to share!
