TGIF! As the weather begins to cool down (Hey, I’ll take the 90s!), I want to share this Blue and White Outdoor Tablescape and some colorful inspiration for Fall outdoor entertaining.

I don’t know about you, but it has been a wild start to the school year for us. Lots of fun but lots of busy!  I’m really looking forward to weekends this fall with cooler weather and lots of outdoor entertaining!  Fall is really when we get enjoy our outdoor living area. You can see a full reveal of ur outdoor living area in this post and the latest outdoor details here.

I created the colorful Blue and White Fall Tablescape using my favorite entertaining essentials: blue and white containers, Juliska outdoor dinnerware, Wood woven placemats and colorful stripe napkins. I love the colorful stripes and  coordinated

The blooming fall plants to create a colorful and relaxed centerpiece with my favorite blue and white containers. This one is my all time favorite.  You’ve also seen them in this tablescape for summer and here for July Fourth! Entertaining becomes very easy when you develop a formula that you can change with a new piece here or there.

Speaking of napkins, I am in love with these the custom monogrammed cocktail napkins from Dogwood Hill Design. The owner, Mia, was my daughters’ dance teacher and has this wonderful new business. Be sure to check Dogwood Hill Design for additions to your entertaining repertoire and gifts.

Another little switch that I did to my favorite batch cocktail for entertaining is updating my popular Strawberry Sangria recipe. Using the recipe, I used out pomegranate juice and blackberries instead of orange juice and strawberries to create a Pomegranate and Blackberry Sangria.

While I won’t be recreating this tablescape this weekend because I’m visiting my daughter in California, I will be recreating this again soon for friends.  I will be sharing some of our favorite places to be sure to follow along on Instagram. And then headed to Colorado on a girls trip. I’m so excited to spend time with friends and visit a place I’ve never been. Looking forward to cooler weather and hopefully some fall foliage!

I hope this inspires you to enjoy the fall outdoors and entertain friends and family.

Have a fabulous weekend!

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!
