I love to set a holiday table.  The 4th of July is a favorite!  A simple but elegant table is my typical style.  I’ve been eyeing these bamboo and Ikat plates for a few months. Getting ready for a July 4th tables cape and with Pottery Barn’s sale, I couldn’t resist! They have up to 70% off and free shipping right now. I am crazy about Ikat so it was hard for me to pass these up for so long.

Having great basics like this blue vase, make setting a festive table easy. My blue vases are actually from Tiffany and used when I chaired the Junior League of Dallas Ball years ago but work well with this causal setting, too. Tuck some American flags in hydrangeas and, voila, July 4th centerpieces. I added these red and cream striped placemats, jute table runner and napkins tied with a woven red ribbon I picked up at the local craft store.

Obviously, we’d need glasses for dinner and these are the ones I have at my bar for both parties and family events. I didn’t add them to the table because, honestly, it was so dang hot, I blew it off!  Thankfully, my dress was cool.Alicia Wood, Dallas Fashion Blogger, Dallas Food blog, Dallas Lifestyle Blog, July 4th, July 4th Tablscape, Fourth of July TablescapeIkat plate, Fourth of July, 4th of July, Fourth of July Tablesetting, 4th of July Tablescape, July 4th Tablescape, Fourth of July Tablesetting, Dallas Blogger, Food Blogger, Dallas Fashion Blogger, Dallas Lifestyle Blogger, Bamboo Plate, red white and blue tableAlicia Wood, Fourth of July Tablesetting, 4th of July Tablescape, July 4th Tablescape, Fourth of July Tablesetting, Dallas Blogger, Food Blogger, Dallas Fashion Blogger, Dallas Lifestyle Blogger, Bamboo Plate, red white and blue table

Nordstrom Beauty Discovery: Cle de Peau Concealer

It’s easy to get in a routine when it comes to make up.  My need for a new concealer lead me back to an old favorite and the discovery of some new products from Cle de Peau.

For years, I used the cult favorite concealer from this fabulous brand. I discovered it as a new mom with tired eyes and dark circles. It was my go -o for years. Now as a mom of teenagers, I feel like those dark circles have returned!
