Are you enjoying summer where you live or is this the point in time when it's s sweltering that you've started pining away for an early fall?!Read More
Happy 4th of July, friends!
For some reason, it doesn't seem like it's already time for this mid-summer holiday. Maybe it's because the weather here in Skaneateles has been on the cooler side, even for our usual not-so-sweltering summer temperatures.
Nonetheless, we're down for a little patriotic grilling session!Read More
Don't get me wrong - I certainly don't have anything against bar carts. In fact I love using them whenever the party's happening in a space that doesn't have a "real" bar handy .Read More
After spending a loooonnnng winter knee deep in snow (both on and off the slopes!), this Central NY mama is ready to get a little warm weather style in her life - pronto!Read More
Are you hosting breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner this year? Regardless of the meal, you can set the happiest of Easter tables in a million different ways, just by changing out one little thing here and another little thing there.
And here it is with gold flatware (both sets are from Crate and Barrel).
Now here it is with 3 white plates and a black napkin from Target's Smith and Hawken line...
... and with the middle plate swapped out for something a little snazzier and a green napkin.
With the snazzy plate moved on top of the Wisteria napkin...
... and with the green napkin.
Isn't it amazing how simple it is to make a table setting look so different?! So fun!
With those little tricks up your sleeve, you could host breakfast, brunch, lunch, AND dinner and never have the same table setting twice!
Don't you love these hurricanes from Simon Pearce?
I'll be sharing the recipe for that spring salad in an upcoming post (that is, if it's fair to call the instructions for throwing a salad together a 'recipe'!). The black salad bowl is from Target's Magnolia Home collection.
We're currently featured in the spring issue of The Coastal Table. In the magazine, we talk design trends for 2018 (don't worry - we'll share some trends with you in an upcoming post right here on The Farmhouse Blog!).
If you don't yet subscribe to The Coastal Table, you must! It's a gorgeous quarterly magazine with a mission to "capture the true essence of the coast" using beautiful photography and storytelling.

The pewter platter is from Pottery Barn. It's technically called a 'Cookie Platter' but it's just right for a loaf of crusty bread.
These lovely flowers really set the mood for a cheerful spring celebration.

Nevermind that we just had two nearly apocalyptic snowstorms here in Skaneateles - and that we currently have a forecast for more snow all week long!
My mind is set firmly on springtime, which also means I'm longing for vases and vases of blooms fresh from the garden!
And that all got me thinking about how much the mood we're trying to set when we entertain is impacted by the types of flowers we use.Read More
