Happy Monday, all! How was the weekend? Even with the excitement of a Seahawks victory (and the Patriots for Mr. H - things are going to be interesting at our house come Super Bowl Sunday), the true highlight was an early Chinese New Year's party at the home of my amazing friend Dana. We've been celebrating New Years - either the January 1 variety or Chinese New Year - with the same crew for a decade now. Two of them are about to move to London, so we had our bash a month early. As always, Dana set the most gorgeous table - please note the gilded fortune cookies:
Willow Ware plates in a midnight shade, Grace Glassybabys, oranges and brightly hued roses, paper lanterns and her lovely collection of blue and white all added up to something extraordinarily beautiful.
Talk about good fortune. How lucky am I to have a friend with such great style? You can follow her on Instagram: @danamerrillstyle
And isn't there something about a party in the middle of January when everyone has been hibernating for a few weeks? So wonderful to celebrate the company of dear friends.
What's your favorite reason to celebrate this time of year? XO
