Preppy Pig BBQ

When I first saw the fun logo for Preppy Pig BBQ I wanted to find out more. JCW is a BBQ judge so his love for meat & sides has rubbed off on me. Preppy Pig is a traditional BBQ caterer based in Newport but they will be serving pulled pork, brisket, ribs and chicken all over New England this summer. They're also a great follow on Instagram...
 

 
 

 
I can't wait to try their BBQ!

Barn Wedding

We attended a beautiful barn wedding in Monkton, Maryland this month.



ESW & JCW

Clementine was the caterer and did an truly fabulous job! All of the food was delicious and the specialty cocktails were incredible. Guests sipped on Dark n Stormies, Southsides, Basil Lime Elixirs, Red & White Sangria and Booze Bullets.

After dinner the party really got started with stops for cake, a piƱata and fireworks!

Special thanks to the newlyweds for including us in your special day. You continue to inspire us with your creativity, energy and many talents...we love you both! xx

Unofficial Start of Summer

Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer, which means it's time for white clothes and golden glows...a little yellow gold jewelry wouldn't hurt either. Enjoy Memorial Day weekend! xx

Hermes: All About Women Event

Hermes hosted the All About Women event last night in NYC. They had an enamel bar that served Clic-clac champagne which I saw via their instragram account.

I doesn't get any more fabulous than women with stacks of enamel bracelets serving champagne. Hermes has a ton of new enamels this season. I am loving this equestrian pattern...

Dana Gibson

 

Dana Gibson has a lot of new products since I hosted a giveaway for one of her wastebaskets in 2012. I am particularly smitten by her "Canton Collection" print that includes lamps, pillows and bucket totes.
