We are so thrilled to have Kate from Party Resources guest posting for us today! Her beautiful blog is filled with fabulous inspiration from an event planner extraordinaire. From chic design to the perfect appetizer, Kate is always full of great ideas. Thanks so much for sharing with us today!
Beth and Kristy (the fab mother-daughter duo behind Design Chic) are two of my favorite bloggers. (Not to mention some of the most stylish!) I am delighted to be included in their “In Good Taste” Series. Our blog is all about entertaining and to me, any good event has to start with a welcoming and warm home. Your home really should rise up to meet not only you but also your guests. In my opinion, nobody creates more inviting spaces than Amanda Nisbet:
From living rooms to dining rooms and event the kitchen, her eye is flawless! To be sure, she is “in good taste.”

Thanks again, Kate! We hope you all have a great Tuesday. Thanks so much for stopping by!
I realized this morning that The Netherlands is to thank for two of our favorite signs of Spring: the tulip and the half-opened Dutch door. (Their windmills are pretty cool too…) Now that it’s nice and warm in North Carolina it’s such a treat to be able to fling the windows open first thing in the morning and enjoy fresh air all day long. But I can’t help but be a little envious of those who are lucky enough to have a charming Dutch door to let the breeze and sunshine in while keeping the animals populating their garden out. Well, some animals. The stray cat that has taken up residence in our yard could scale that half door in two seconds flat and would be enjoying a lovely nap on the end of the guest bedroom bed. But, theoretically. Here are a few Dutch doors that we thought would look right at home in any house. We hope you enjoy!
Delaware Governor’s House
I wonder if the governor of Delaware has his Dutch door open today…

I’ve always thought it would be neat to have a Dutch door separating the kitchen from the rest of the house, like this one. What a great way to be able to see what is going on while keeping little ones away from a hot stove.
Having the screen door outside makes this Dutch door perfectly functional for someone like me who has a yard full of hard-working bumble bees!
is not gold. But, fortunately for us, all these beautiful, glittery photos are! Whether it’s on your wrist, hanging on your wall, or perched on your bedside table, a hint of the shiny stuff can glitz up any decor. Hope these photos add a little glamour to your day!
