It’s spring and my house is filled with guests every weekend! I like to plan ahead and stock up on paper plates, utensils, serving dishes and napkins throughout the year. If I see something while traveling or on a regular shopping trip I purchase it and then store it away for when I need it. Party planning or even having a small dinner party can be so much fun, as long as you’re going about it the right way! Make like a Girl Scout / Boy Scout and “be prepared”!
Every event needs a cheese platter - a laid-back spring time backyard BBQ, Sunday football gathering, a Halloween party, Thanksgiving feast or a New Years Eve soirée, this platter idea can cater to any style gathering.

I love hosting friends and family... My number one rule for having guests over is - keep it simple. Prepare as much as possible ahead of time.

Lighting is vital to any space you can use farmhouse lighting dining room or farmhouse lighting for kitchen.

When creating quotes for the North Detail Spring collection, I immediately connected with “Ice cream for breakfast & pancakes for dinner.” In our home growing up meal time was family time; we ate dinner together every night at the dinner table. I remember thinking how much fun it was to mix up meal time - eating breakfast for dinner. Another staple was make your own sundaes for dinner; these sporadic treats make meaningful memories!
Dish towels are the be all end all at my house. I use them for everything; double them up to use as a trivet, wipe a spill or place on the bar cart as decor!
