New Year's Eve 2013
The Best Year Yet…

Last New Years’ Eve we hosted a Gatsby themed party at our house. It was a great night and one of my favorite parties we’ve ever hosted (moonshine brought by a friend may have contributed to that!). One of the decorations I put up was...

Recipe: Homemade Pasta & Sauce

Homemade pasta takes a little bit of time (but actually not as much as you'd think!), but it's so worth it. I had never attempted homemade pasta before Elyse showed me how at the pasta workshop. There was always an assumption that it was really difficult...

Event Gallery: Pasta Workshop with Elyse Fischer

Inspiration: Porch Party

The best thing about hosting a porch party is that it doesn't have to be perfect. Keep it simple and casual and use what you have. If you need a little inspiration, I've created a round up of some of my favorite things to have...

The Maker's Table | Wine + Cheese Pairings
Host a Wine + Cheese Party

One of my favorite ways to host is to have a wine and cheese night. It takes the stress out of having people over because there's almost no prep and all you need is a platter or cheese board, wine glasses, and (if you want to...

Last week was a whirlwind of butter, flour, sprinkles, and more butter with one cupcake class here in Oklahoma City and a second class at Carlton Landing. It was a busy weekend for me, but amidst the hustle and bustle are the moments where your...
