Spring Table Setting for Mother’s Day Luncheon

My parents live in Dallas, so I don’t get to be with my mother on Mother’s Day very often since I moved to Denver.  This year, though, they are coming a few weeks before, so we will get to celebrate it with her a little early.  My mother is an acclaimed hostess and they open their home very often for events, both large and small.  She has most certainly been my most significant inspiration for my own passion for entertaining!

When life gives you lemons…

One of my favorite reality stars, Shannon Beador of the Real Housewives of Orange County, recently said … “When life gives you lemons, put nine of them in a bowl!”  This immediately became my motto and as well as the inspiration behind my first blog post! Not only does it simply suggest doing something special with “lemons in your life” that might be considered “sour”, but it’s about transforming those faulty, not-so-pleasant situations into something better.
