Backyard Bash

DSC_6709

img_6478

Over the weekend we celebrated my parent’s 70th birthday with an intimate backyard dinner. As for many of us, our celebratory plans have had to change and we are coming up with new ways to commemorate special milestones.

We decided to create a memorable backyard bash. I set up a long table in our backyard and enlisted the help of my friend Dana from Serendipity Flowers LA to handle the flowers and table decor. She made it look so beautiful with florals, greenery, and candles. We had a separate seating area set up for appetizers and cocktails (FYI Joans on Third has individual cheese platters that are COVID friendly). It was a group effort with my older daughter making a gorgeous crudités platter adorned with edible flowers, my younger daughter making a two tier coconut layer cake, and my sister creating an amazing playlist. Dinner was catered by Jon & Vinny’s (we were supposed to be in Italy to celebrate so it was only appropriate we had Italian food for dinner). We dined al fresco, listened (and danced) to music, and sat by the fire to finish off a truly a magical evening!

Now onto fashion and what I wore. I picked a Christy Dawn dress. If you’re not familiar with Christy Dawn she’s a Los Angeles designer who focuses on sustainable and ethically crafted fashion. Several new dresses dropped (all cotton) the Bianca and Colette. I accessorized with with turquoise Beck Jewels hoops, and Beatrice Valenzuela slides

Regarding the table setting I used Year & Day dishes, linen napkinshurricane candlesvintage goblets (similar to mine), and a wood board for the crudités.

Gingham Style

img_6302

I have been searching for these gingham Mary Jane’s ever since I spotted them on Frannie Gilligan several months ago. Thankfully, these Italian Drogheria Crivellini Mary Jane flats just arrived at Clare V. check them out here. Also, fresh off the press is this chic Clare V. tie dye set (here & here), and this candy stripe puff sleeve midi from & Other Stories (so cute!). As we head into the weekend I’d love to lounge in these super soft Free City sweats, AG muscle tank, and take a stroll in these Kahru sneakers. Happy weekend everyone! XX

For all of you who asked for the Perfect Pot of Lentils recipe I posted on my Instagram story you can find it here. A couple notes, I used half vegetable stock half water for the liquid (instead of all water) for a bit more flavor. I also found that it needed a little bit more salt. It tasted really good with red leaf lettuce tossed in Miso Ginger Dressing. Bon Appétit!
