It's All About The Details - DIY

Bracelet: Anthropologie, similar  // Nail Lacquer: Deborah Lippmann



Shirt: J.Crew Outlet  // Jeans: J.Crew Outlet, similar // Ray Ban's 


I am all about the presentation when it comes to entertaining.  It's the tiny details that make any event special.  When my friend, Carly (above, right),  asked a few of us girls over for wine and cheese on a regular Tuesday night, I didn't expect anything fancy, just a casual time with great friends.  

When we arrived, Carly had put together an elegant cheese platter filled with cheeses, figs, walnuts, chocolates and crackers.  Personalized place mats with our names welcomed us on the patio table.  Emily (above, left) brought fresh bouquets of flowers for the moms, which added a special touch to our night.  We sipped wine from crystal goblets as we chatted the night away. 

 Here is how to create your own simple arrangements and party platter:



So simple and casual, but oh, so very glamorous! Thanks so much for reading!
