  2. Host Fourth of July Brunch

    FH-4thofJuly-9FH-4thofJulyFH-4thofJuly-7

    With 4th of July right around the bend it’s time to start prepping for the holiday!!  If you remember, I partnered with Lexington Company two years ago {see here – jeeze time flies!}, so when they reached out to collaborate again for the patriotic occasion, I could not wait!

    This year I thought it would be fun to throw a 4th of July Brunch. I love the idea of getting the family together early on in the day so the afternoon can be spent playing outside! On the menu: warm buttery croissants, blueberry yogurt parfaits, fresh strawberries and sparkling champagne spritzers – all the essential food groups {in all the right colors!}.

    To create this tablescape I started with some of my Lexington Company favorites, their blue and white striped tablecloth, beautiful white plates with blue trim {which I use year round}, and footed wine glasses {which I actually used for water topped with a lemon slice}. My favorite piece from Lexington’s dinnerware collection for sure are the rope napkin rings. The nautical theme goes seamlessly with the holiday.

    Want more 4th of July ideas? Head to this FH post or visit my 4th of July Pinterest Board! Wishing you and your family an amazing Holiday! Don’t forget to tag @FashionableHostess to share how you hosted your family!

  3. Monogram Roundup

    I guess the true Southerner in me is starting to show before even arriving in Nashville because I suddenly have this new found love for monograms. It all started when I came across the sight Mark & Graham {a brother sight to Pottery Barn, Williams Sonoma, and West Elm} when I was shopping for some unique Father’s Day barware. It started with cocktail napkins {die for these seersucker ones!}, then a lacquer tray {here}, and next thing I know I was buying new powder room towels to prep for summertime guests! With 4th of July around the corner this is the perfect time to step-up your barware {or buy your hostess a special gift!}. Shop my top monogram picks now!
