One of my favorite accessories is scarves. I don’t even want to admit how many I have . . . let’s just say I have a scarf problem. Here in San Francisco it’s the easiest item to tuck in your handbag in case the fog starts to roll in. Not only do they keep you warm but it’s also a way to add a little bit of pattern to any outfit.
Do you have any scarves that you love this season? I’m always on the hunt to add more to my collection!
With the holiday season beginning that can only mean one thing – the season of entertaining is upon us! To me, an essential for any soiree is a beautiful cheese platter. The beauty of a cheese board is that you can serve it for a casual night in with friends or as a way to entertain guests before a dinner party. With that being said, we wanted to share how the Sacramento Street team puts together the ultimate cheese board.
Easy, right? You can really never go wrong with any cheese that pops out at you at your local grocery store or cheese shop. But remember, if you are preparing a signature cocktail do a little research on what would go well together. In this case, we wanted to pair our cheese board with SIA Scotch Whiskey(that everyone should have on their bar cart), which our dear friend Carin just launched last year. It’s the perfect sipping drink that warms your whole body on a chilly night in with friends.
The next time you find yourself wondering what you should serve to guests, remember a stunning cheese board will knock any guests socks off. It’s sure to be the hit of the party if you follow our easy steps.
Hopefully this will inspire you to plan a little holiday party of your own. Tis the season!
A home bar is something every home should have – whether it’s used all the time or more of a decorative aspect of your home. You never know when a guest might want a cocktail. When it comes to creating the perfect bar cart it comes down to a simple equation of what to have – the right glassware, alcohol and a bar cart that can hold the essentials. By the end, you’ll be wanting to spruce up your very own or put one together for the upcoming holidays.
The Glassware:You want to have several styles – from highball glasses, to champagne glasses. I love finding vintage glasses that add a bit more character to a bar cart. Chairish has beautiful options right now that are perfect to achieve a curated look.
The Liquor:My rule is to stock your bar with liquor you enjoy the most. From there you can master creating the perfect cocktails any guest would enjoy. You can always expand list but stick to your favorites at the beginning. Our favorites are St. Germain Liqueur, Hendricks Gin, SIA Scotch Whiskey and a favorite mixer tonic water called Jack Rudy – the packaging is one of my favorites!
The Bar Carts:Finding the perfect bar area in your home is essential whether it’s in a bookcase, a vintage bar cart or a console. There are a lot of options out there. If you have a spot in your home where you could have a bar cart – go out on a quest to find a vintage bar cart to place everything on. It’s a way to add a touch of uniqueness to your room.
Can you believe Thanksgiving is right around the corner? I feel as though November just began. When it comes to planning my thanksgiving outfit I think about what’s easy to wear in the kitchen during the last few hours of cooking and comfort after eating a delicious meal.
I tend to gravitate towards a loose dress and leggings – or as I call them, stretchy pants. After a long day, being comfy is top priority. This is one look I’m considering for this year.
Good morning friends! This weekend began with our house looking as though Christmas had come a little too early – doing a holiday shoot that I’ll be sharing soon. Alas, it all had to be cleaned up for another exciting shoot this week. After getting the house back to its original state I ditched my errands to enjoy some much needed rest.
This week I’ll be sharing effortless ways to make the beginning of the holiday season go off without a hitch – from creating the perfect bar cart to a new blooms in season post.
