You all know I love to host! 
On my long list of hobbies its definitely one of the top!
 The cooking, the baking and ESPECIALLY the dinnerware, placemats, candles and entertaining pieces!

 It's all an excuse to get delicious cheeses, aromatic wines and beautifully sparkly decor pieces! This was a small dinner party for 4 but boy did it pack a punch!

Appetizer





For these mini caprese, you'll need:

🖤party picks

🖤cherry tomatoes
🖤mozzarella cheese cubes


Use the bottom flat side of the cheese to gold the pick up and place on a beautiful long appetizer plate to present to your guests.


MAIN COURSE


Dinner consisted of stuffed chicken with spinach, feta, cream cheese, and parmesan cheese.
Use frozen not fresh spinach and season your chicken with salt and pepper.
Add any additional flavor you want but remember that the saltier the cheese the less seasoning you need.




🖤CHICKEN
🖤FETA CHEESE

🖤CREAM CHEESE

🖤SEASONING OF YOUR CHOICE

🖤PARM


For sides, I went with rice pilaf from the bag for the easiest dinner ever and candied carrots, they taste amazing, add a great balance of sweetness to this dinner menu, and they look fancy AF but take no effort!

I felt effortlessly chic in this ensemble for the launch party of Revlon's collaboration with Ashley Graham, for their New PhotoReady Candid Collection. The line consist of parabin free products, some caffeine infused products, as well as anti-blue light ingredients. I paired this grey textured coat with a simple LBD and suede booties for a warm, sexy, and sophisticated look. 



These booties were a perfect option to enhance height and while remaining comfortable.



 I added a feather clutch to introduce a little bit of edge to this glamorous fashion look.







The mirror room made me feel like I was standing inside of a disco ball.


I had so much fun with this look. How could something so simple make me feel so grown and sexy?

This Friendsgiving I wanted to do a beautiful marble, grey, and silver tablescape, with subtle hints of black and white. My Husband and I recently switched up the decor in our home to grey and silver so this was the perfect time to compliment it. 




I'm obsessed with these marble plates and the leaf placemats, I also mixed and matched rose gold placemats with silver just to add a hint of warmth. Sometimes you have to layer pieces to create the perfect chic yet interesting tablescape; especially when your color scheme is simple and monochromatic without that essential POP of color. 



To create a more chic and aesthetically pleasing piece, add textures to make the table look more fun and festive. I love mixing textures that don’t seem to blend organically but in the end, make for a Pinterest perfect look! Keep reading to recreate it with these pieces below for your thanksgiving, or Christmas dinner!
