All I Hear Are Cricuts

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Good Morning Darlings!

No, I haven’t stopped using my spell check. The cricuts I’m talking about are not the creepy crawly kind, but those swanky little machines that allow you to blow everyone away with your creativity!

You have to see what they can do!

Monstrous Dinner Party Fun!

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

As many of you know, I have started a business teaching etiquette called Dazzling Manners. It’s tons of fun, and every once in a while I like to bust out and have a little more fun. Sometimes not in the best of taste, but I can’t always be sitting around with my elbows off the table.

What could I possibly be talking about?

Good Morning Darlings!

Oh, how I love a good dinner party. I love every aspect of it. The planning, the menu, the cooking, and especially the guest list.

How did this one come together?

Good Morning Darlings!

Sometimes I receive things in the mail that are a surprise. This little package was one of those days.
This is the fun stuff!

Spring in My Step

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

I am so excited for spring to be here. Easter, in particular, when Eric, John and I will be hosting dinner at our house.

To get ready, I have taken large square votive holders, filled them with potting soil and grass seeds and now I wait. The grass-filled votive holders will line our dinner table, enveloping the table in fresh, green grass. But for now, I am tending to my little charges.

Would you like to see what’s inspiring me today?

Guest Post – Is The Dinner Party Dead?

Monday, March 14th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

I have a very special treat for you today!! Our guest blogger is none other than the simply charming Mary Kay Andrews, the author of the New York Times bestselling SAVANNAH BREEZE and BLUE CHRISTMAS, (HarperCollins) as well as HISSY FIT, LITTLE BITTY LIES and SAVANNAH BLUES. She and I were discussing the state of the dinner party on Facebook after someone had posted an article saying the art was dead. She and I disagree with the article and I asked if she would like to write a little something for my blog. Mary Kay was so very kind to write this post and I am thrilled to welcome her to Anatomy of a Dinner Party. Please put your hands together for Miss Mary Kay!

You must see what Miss Mary Kay has to say! Come on in!
