You’re Invited: Classic, Elegant Entertaining

You're Invited:  Classic, Elegant Entertaining by Stephanie Booth Shafran

 

You’re invited… Those might just be two of the most evocative words in the English language and can be met with all sorts of emotions.

Even if you aren’t planning a party, you’ll feel like you’ve been to one. (But if you aren’t planning one, we have to ask… Why on earth not? Make up a reason to celebrate and get to it!)

 

You're Invited:  Classic, Elegant Entertaining by Stephanie Booth Shafran

 

Shafran lives between New York, LA and Sun Valley, and, growing up in LA, her parents were always hosting some sort of event. So you could say her passion for parties is a bit of an inherited trait.

“Entertaining is my form of creativity,” Shafran said. Pick up a copy of You’re Invited, and it’s sure to become yours too!

I had the great pleasure of making my New York TV debut week before last–and I was so thrilled to include You’re Invited as one of my favorite ways to spruce your space for spring! Check it out!

Happy Halloween Eve, friends! We’re pretty sure that’s not a thing, but also, it’s a thing.

Rushing around to put the finishing touches on costumes, buy candy, make goodies for school, get your scary decor in line… It’s definitely a holiday we observe.

_____________

Leaving fans “practically [begging] for a sequel” (Bookpage), critically acclaimed author Kristy Woodson Harvey returns with the second novel in her beloved Peachtree Bluff series, featuring a trio of sisters and their mother who discover a truth that will change not only the way they see themselves, but also how they fit together as a family.

After finding out her military husband is missing in action, middle sister Sloane’s world crumbles as her worst nightmare comes true. She can barely climb out of bed, much less summon the strength to be the parent her children deserve.

Her mother, Ansley, provides a much-needed respite as she puts her personal life on hold to help Sloane and her grandchildren wade through their new grief-stricken lives. But between caring for her own aging mother, her daughters, and her grandchildren, Ansley’s private worry is that secrets from her past will come to light.

But when Sloane’s sisters, Caroline and Emerson, remind Sloane that no matter what, she promised her husband she would carry on for their young sons, Sloane finds the support and courage she needs to chase her biggest dreams—and face her deepest fears. Taking a cue from her middle daughter, Ansley takes her own leap of faith and realizes that, after all this time, she might finally be able to have it all.

Harvey’s signature warmth and wit make this a charming and poignant story of first loves, missed opportunities, and second chances and proves that she is “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, New York Times bestselling author).

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

And what says “holidays” more than Rudolph?

Antlers add that perfect hunt-cabin, rustic feel to any space,

And, whether you’re the first one out the door on the opening day of hunting season,

Or prefer a more PETA-friendly pair, there’s the perfect set of antlers for every space. (Personally, we love the cast resin sets!)

We’ve loved antlers for years, and think they add a starkly modern feel to the simplest of spaces, and the right amount of juxtaposition in more glamorous ones.

For a chic asymmetrical style,

Or serious statement lighting, antlers are a great look in any space! Just add a little fresh greenery for instant holiday style.
