Luxe Entertaining: Drink Stirrers & Straws

As Christin and I plan the theme for our next event, we've been scouring the internet for fun party decor and favors.  And a sure way to help tie in a theme and add some spice to your drinks is by incorporating drink stirrers, swizzle sticks and straws.  We love using stirrers with some tinsel and glitter to add some glam to cocktails like at our Stella and Dot trunk show or Christin's New Year's Day dinner party.  And paper straws are whimsical additions to milkshakes, lemonade or in my case, a mango smoothie poolside!

Luxe Decor: Nate Berkus for Target

I'm always inspired when I come across Nate Berkus' work as I'm flipping through the pages of Elle Decor or House Beautiful.  So it comes as no surprise that we are loving the new collection he has put together for Target (recent release date was Oct 21st).  Like his interior design style, his home collection is a well curated mix of glamour, rustic, masculine and nature.

A few of our favorite Nate interiors...


We're also loving Nate's new book

Designing The New Digs: Cabana Sneak Peak

So it's been 1 week since closing and boy have we been busy!  I have yet to get my hands on the inside of the house, as we have had the floor refinishers in there all week and now the painters, but we have made major strides in the yard.  Between, weeding, mulching, landscaping, power washing, taking down trees and moving pavers, there has been no lack of projects in the meantime.  It's amazing the progress we've made in just a few short days...the yard is already looking so much better!
Of course, my favorite project has been setting up our cabana area (remember my inspiration board?).  It has transformed the pool area and has actually been quite useful throughout week.  It has served as an escape from the sun in between projects and has been the perfect spot to toast with champagne at the end of the day!  This may easily become one of my preferred spots of the house!
