A Beautiful tabletop in Sun-filled Room

Finally, rain stops and sun is out. And most importantly, the weather is finally getting warm up to 70 degree in Los Angeles. I know it has been a weird cold for a very long time since last Nov.  I think I prefer the warmer weather with a lot sunshines. Who wouldn’t?

Well, it is March and spring is just around the corner and Easter is coming soon. I just cannot wait to put up a beautiful outdoor tabletop for entertaining with some fresh color palettes and romantic components.  What about you?

So, I decided to go through some photos and videos from the events we  have been to recently for inspiration.  Then I found this video I shot—I wish I could have done it better.  Maybe next time.  But the whole set-up, organic components, the sun-lights, crystals and yummy cookies in pastel colors and of course fresh flower pedals really talk to me.   I love how they have a large wood branch as a center piece with elegant crystal sculptures scattering  around.  The contrast between organic elements and high-polished items creates such a beautiful , moody,  refined yet relaxed and casual atmosphere.  And fresh flower pedals all over the table are just such a romantic touch. It’s a dream afternoon.

KHK Designs Spring Collection 2019

Finally, the rain stops today here in Los Angeles after a whole-week wet weather. And as usual, we start to enjoy sunshine. When the sun shines through the windows, that is when magic happens. We realize it is spring time. Fresh, fashionable and feminine, this the theme for our Spring Story collection in fashion, home and art.

 

Florals for Spring

 

I am always looking for inspiration from my surroundings, nature, tech, art… And , of course, the fashion.  I am so so fascinated by this week’s Paris Couture Fashion Show. It is the best time to stretch one’s  imagination.   Don’t you agree with me?

One of my favorites is Valentino Couture.  The house designer Pierpaolo Piccioli truely took ‘ Florals for Spring’ to a new level.  It is beyond ordinary beautiful.  From the fresh color palettes to romantic dreamy floral patterns, these designs are such joyful eye candies.  It looks like the designer brought a spring garden to runway.  I couldn’t wait to share them with you:

5 Ways to Create a Casual and Stylish Spring Tabletop at Home

 

Hope you celebrated green and had a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day yesterday.  We always love St. Patrick’s day not because it’s fun and cool, also because it is usually the time for us to kick off the season of Spring entertaining. Specially after the several times of raining showers, everything in our garden just starts blooming.  So, of course, inspired by the warm and clear sunshine and beautiful blooms in our garden, we decided to have a causal in-home celebration by cooking comfy Irish beef stew and put up an organic spring-theme tabletop to enjoy.  You may want to do the same thing too,  but may be just intimated by the complicated task and think maybe the other time.  Well, life is about celebrating every moment.  We are celebrating by doing and engaging as much as we can.  Therefore, it is much more fun for memories and does excise your creative muscles a lot.  But there are some simple ways to make in-home entertaining much less a daunted task.  Here are 7 tips we would love to share to make spring entertaining fun, simps and stylish.

 

  1. Just go to the outdoor and go to your backyard  garden.  You will be inspired by nature a lot and make you desire to bring nature to home.  Since our garden is blooming, we just got everything from the garden—grass, roses, wild flowers, branches, herbs…

2. Please don’t wrap up your fine china and put them away at somewhere you even cannot find.  Yes, please display your chinaware at the place you can easily see. Therefore, you always want to use them.

3. Plan,plan,plan.  Write down the theme and food you would like to serve.  For St. Patrick’s day table top, we wanted to celebrate the season of spring, so we had  a lot of green-leaf veggies and in-season colorful root veggies.  The next is to prepare the menu. For ours menu is mainly  Irish beef stew with some green veggie cakes and green-leaf salad.  We actually cooked the beef stew a night before in a slower cooker.
