As the air grows cooler all I can think about is layering up my favorite fall pieces. I’m a sucker for cozy knits, beautiful coats and boots. If I could wear them year round I totally would. It’s my favorite time of year.

When it comes to layering fall favorites I tend to stick to my neutral palette so that everything can mix and match seamlessly. The key is to have the perfect fall coat that can go with everything – day or night. This is a new favorite I’m lusting over – I love the fact that it has a hood.

a brand new week . . .

bedroom

Do you ever find yourself not knowing what day of the week it is? Well, that’s how I’ve felt over the past few weeks. It has been quite a whirlwind few weeks with baseball playoffs, fall photo shoots, family coming into town and traveling. Now we’re in Kansas City for the last few games of the World Series but I have to say, this morning was blissful. We set no alarms, decided to take the morning off and just relax. And although it’s not Monday I feel like I’m starting my week on the right foot.


Cheers to a wonderful last few days of October and hopefully celebrating another win for the Giants!

Effortless Entertaining with Vietri

Effortless Entertaining with Vietri 3


When it comes to designing tabletops for dinner parties I tend to go in one of two routes – casual or elegant. One thing that I strive to do with each is to make sure that it is effortless. No one wants to be a stressed out hostess. This fall I’ve made it a point to fully embrace doing more casual tabletops that have a few key details that guests notice and want to use themselves when hosting dinner parties this fall.

To kick off the entertaining season I thought I’d share a few tips to making your next dinner party go off without a hitch.


1.) Pick a palette thats seasonal – whether it’s neutral (like this tabletop) or something colorful.


2.) Once you’ve figured out your color palette decide which dinnerware you want to use. I wanted to add plates that had rustic edges to them, Vietri is a great source for beautiful dinnerware.


3.) Add pattern with napkins.


4.) Seasonal touches – I decided that little white pumpkins would be the perfect way to embrace the fall season. Then guests can take them home as a parting gift.


5.) Layers are key, by adding branches down the center of the table adds that extra details that finishes off the entire look. Here I used magnolia branches, but you can use anything – olive branches, eucalyptus, see what your local flower shop or grocery store has in stock.


6.) Lastly, and this might be the most important tip – set everything up the night before. It’ll be one last thing to think about the day of and then you can focus on everything else you have to do. Plus, it always gets me excited to see my guests when it is already set.

Blooms in Season: October

Blooms in Season by Natalie Bowen Designs for Sacramento Street

 

October is one of those months where I find myself surrounded by friends and family that are incredibly excited for the change of season. As you all know, this is one of my favorite times of year. When Natalie and I sat down to brainstorm ideas for this months arrangement, all we knew was that we wanted to fully embrace fall with the colors and seasonal items that surround us. Well, as you can only imagine Natalie hit it out of the park with this month’s post – the way she used different green hues, pumpkins, acorns, and more is honestly phenomenal. Read on to hear more about what inspired this beautiful post.

What was used for this October’s arrangement:

 

Heirloom pumpkin
white ice king protea
persimmons
scabiosa
casperita white pumpkin
acorns
privet berry

 

I love the color palate. The components are so seasonable but the colors are not the expected orange autumnal colors. What made you decide to use these hues?

 

I love this time of year! October is my favorite month and I love seeing the season change. I wanted to share a look that felt very seasonal yet was still slightly unexpected colors. I was initially inspired by the green persimmons.

These green persimmons are amazing, the color is just fantastic. Tell us more about them.

 

I like using under ripened fruit for a couple of reasons. First, I like that it shows the fruit in an unexpected and less common color. Green blackberries also work really well for this reason. I also like using fruit that is not fully ripe because it lasts much longer and does not fall off the stem the way ripe fruit does.

 

I’m always on the hunt for different pumpkins, how did you know we would love them?

 

Yes, I knew you would love the white one. It is called “casperita.” I don’t know the variety of the darker black/green one, but it was grown in Half Moon Bay where the largest pumpkin festival has been held since 1971.
