Holiday Table + Entertaining Tips on The Haven List

Excited to be sharing this festive little table we whipped up for Nantucket Looms (special thanks to Jacin Fitzgerald for being absolutely priceless during this shoot since I was pushing 9 months pregnant!). I absolutely love the holidays, and decking the halls on Nantucket just seems extra special. I’m sharing some entertaining tips on how to stay stylish (and sane!) this festive season over on The Haven List today!

Casual Autumn Dinner Party with Nantucket Looms

I really love this time of year. Now, I know I say that about most times of year (except maybe that late March - early May here in New England, that is a time I could do without) - but autumn in New England is just about as good as it gets. It calls for all things cozy and comforting, and just makes you want to find any excuse to gather people together. And this year happens to be even more special since we are expecting a little one any day now.

Closing Out Patio Season

Once the hydrangeas start to change their hues from a vibrant blue to a mix of fabulous fall shades, I know our time outdoors is starting to dwindle. I love the change of seasons though, it makes you appreciate every single night you get to spend outside, soaking up the warmer temps. This time of year in particular is wonderful. The chilly nights calls for long sleeves and jeans, but you are perfectly cozy sitting outside with the right layers. So I like to make any random night an occasion. And since I just so happen to be pushing 9 months pregnant - that always involves snacks like this yummy popcorn from Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP.

Laid Back, New England Summer Entertaining

As a little girl, my New England-bred parents (who had been transplanted to Tennessee right around the time I was born), packed up our suburban every summer and drove up the eastern seaboard (sometimes with a boat in tow, sometimes with a dog, and always with four kids with far too much energy for a 22 hour drive) to escape the oppressive southern summers. We instead replaced them with magical New England ones.

Outdoor Patio Update + Summer Entertaining with Joss & Main

I love all seasons, I really do, but summer in New England is something to really appreciate. Maybe it's because we wait so long for it. Maybe it's because the weather is just perfection. Maybe it's because everyone just seems like they are in the happiest of moods. Whatever it is, I try to soak it up in every capacity and spend as much time outdoors as possible.

Cranberry, Elderberry Spritz with Runamok Maple Syrup

Spring cocktails are happiness in a glass. There is absolutely nothing like the first sip of a yummy cocktail on the patio after a long winter, and I have just the recipe for such a special occasion. Now, it's important to know, whenever I plan on serving a cocktail I make sure it only has a few ingredients - because who wants to sit in the kitchen mixing all night while your friends are enjoying themselves on your dream cocktail + patio evening? Well this little bubbly sipper is so easy you could do it in your sleep (or after a few perhaps), but they are fun and festive enough to make the evening feel special. Tip: the elderberry maple syrup from Runamok Maple is what really makes this spritzer shine.
