Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. We’d been busy traveling and making keto cookies for the holiday season and here are some memories I would love to share from our holidays. Enjoy!
Christmas and New year are offically in count-down now. Hope you are in a mood for just being festive to celebrate the end of 2018.
One thing that fascinates me about holiday is the cheerful jewel-tone color palette. I feel that most people are just too scared to use the rich jewel-tone colors on the regular days. But those colors are not just for holidays and they do make you happier and enhances your appetite. And most importantly, they are from Nature. So this rich color jewel-tone palette can actually put you at ease and remind you it is time to celebrate. I finally find the time to put together our Thanksgiving table set and will sure update this post soon. Enjoy!

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.
- 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.
4. Well, just sit back and enjoy.
5. Take time to take the photos for what you just do and you will be inspired to host next party.

We did see some exciting fashion moments from last night’s 90th Oscar Academy Red Carpet. There were a lot of white, blush, red and unique bold blue, neon pink… Here is our pairing tradition From Red-Carpet -to -Home. Enjoy!
The beauty of white is its versatile range to go from an ultra creamy white. In 2018, white goes strong both in the fashion and interiors. Here are more white interiors:
3. Pale Blue
5. Bright Blue
6. Red and Pink.
7. Bright Pink
Besides white, red, the lipstick red, is another color to dominate 2018 Oscar red carpet.
For some weired reason, I always have a mood for color of pink on Wednesday. What about you? What is your mood color on Wednesday? From hot pink, blush to muted pastel, pink always evokes feeling of romance, dream, elegance, feminism, sophistication and sweetness.
It looks like we do use a lot of pink in our design projects.
Chinese New Year is going to be Feb 16th. And we are brainstorming a special tabletop for both V day and Chinese New Year celebration. It’s going to a very feminine, romantic yet a cheerful color-palette theme incorporating Pantone Ultra Violet, vintage pink, some chinoiserie components. And of course a lot of fresh roses. Please stay tuned with us.
Happy the last week of March
Today is the last Friday of 2016. And it’s raining again. My rose arrangement for our Christmas table center piece is still beautiful. I just added some garden-fresh pink camellias. Now I am in the process of setting up a Mimosa bar for our NYE celebration.
Today’s LA weather is very nice–warm sunshine and a little bit of breeze. With Christmas around corner, I think it will be a perfect time to set up an outdoor table top and have a little bit high tea on this beautiful weekend sunny afternoon in Dec. Yes, we are just lucky enough to still be able to host a backyard outdoor party in Dec. My inspiration for today’s setup came from the designer floral fabric I got a year ago. I really like the elegant pattern of the fabric and always think how I should use this fabric for my next decor project. It looks like today is a day. The fabric will be perfect to cover my little French table for today’s outdoor party setup. It’s British, whimsical, floral and really mimics the garden. So, here we go:
Chinossorie, English china and some fresh casual floral arrangements with a lush greenery backdrop. Love the sunny day!
Here are 5 ways to host your backyard outdoor high tea party:
- Just do it.
- Start small—a small table, a fine table cloth will help you start the project.
- Always keep your eye on antique tea cups—they are the Queen for your party.
- Have fresh flowers.
- Order macaron cookies in different colors.
