Setting The Table: Inviting Tory And Oscar To Dinner

 

Hi all, are you ready to celebrate the holiday weekend? Today is my dear friend Christina's birthday. Unfortunately she moved to California a couple weeks ago, because I sure would love to throw her a blue and white birthday bash on our terrace tonight. 

On the table? It seems like both Tory Burch and Oscar de La Renta should be invited. Don't you think their home collections pair beautifully together? 


I can just see a big oval spongeware bowl from Tory Burch filled with a huge bouquet of sunflowers. The perfect match for dot and dash and brushstroke plates from ODLR.
 

What to wear? Tory's Margaux dress has been my go-to for parties and date nights all summer long (and it's on sale). Oscar's jewel neck dress would be just lovely on a summer evening.
Happy Birthday, Christina! Happy Labor Day Weekend, everyone! Hope the skies are blue and the sun shines as bright as a bowl full of sunflowers.

And happy September a bit early - I'll be taking some time off to stretch out summer and recharge a bit. Be back soon! XOXO

    1. Thank you! You know, work used to bring me to the Bay area quite a bit back in my Nordstrom days, but I haven't made the trip since I left - these days, we seem to travel in our back yard, to New England to see family, or in pursuit of faraway adventures. But it's nice to know that SF is just a quick trip...

      Happy Weekend! XOXO
