The Art of Celebrating

books

We hope that 2017 has already given you plenty of reasons to celebrate. If not, take a peek at David Monn’s The Art of Celebrating. We promise you’ll want to invent a reason to celebrate immediately!

Flowers are one of the most important aspects of any party. Flowers in unique containers are our absolute favorites!

Of all the flowers and all the celebrations, we can probably all agree that wedding flowers are the most important and the most special.

We have a few weddings we’re especially looking forward to this year and this has us dreaming of how wonderful they are going to be.

It is the details that help make every celebration from the huge to the tiny. This unexpected wreath is the perfect accent.

Setting the table is another one of our favorite parts of any celebration. From a grand banquet table to an intimate family dinner, a beautiful table setting makes every day feel special.

New takes on old favorites can make a look feel totally fresh. We’re loving this chicly shaded fruit bowl!

Oh, the things you can do with ice… And moss!

lanterns

Chinese lanterns can’t help but add a festive feel to any event, from casual to formal. This color scheme is perfect for fall!

You can never go wrong with adding a hint of fresh to any tablescape. Fruit is a fun twist on basic flowers.

Can you say, “Pool party!” This is the ultimate in New England chic. As if we weren’t longing for summer, this has made us want it back even more! For even more gorgeous events, don’t miss David Monn’s The Art of Celebrating It is a must-have for any well-rounded coffee table book collection.

The first book signing I ever attended might have ruined me for all other book signings in the future. It was for Alessandra Branca’s gorgeous New Classic Interiors. In Manhattan. At Bergdorf Goodman. Needless to say, the woman knows a thing or two about entertaining. (Also needless to say, it was one of the more glamorous book signings I’ve been a part of…) So, if you’re finalizing your holiday party plans, take a peek below for some fabulous Alessandra Branca inspiration. Happy soiree planning!
