Dining Room Table Perfection + A Giveaway

Caitlin Flemming Design - Dining Room 1

As with many homes in San Francisco, my dining room has more than just the purpose of sitting down for a meal. With space at a premium, my dining room also serves as my occasional workspace and dressing room – since my closet is also in the dining room. For the past two years we’ve had a farm table but it was too big for the space, so I have been looking for a clean and minimal table that wouldn’t take over the entire room. I wanted a table that would work with both modern and vintage furniture as well.

 

That’s when I came across the Saarinen Oval Tulip Table from Rove Concepts. The surface is so forgiving and I don’t worry about causing damage to it – believe me we have had multiple spills of anything you could imagine on it … baby food, wine, you name it!

What I love most about this table is that I can have a client project spread all over the table during the day and by the evening have it set for a dinner. Since we mostly eat at home, it is nice to have something that isn’t too big for the three of us to eat at each night.

 

One thing I love about this table is I can switch up the chairs I pair with it – usually with a mix of both old and new. It was by far one of my favorite purchases for our home.

Motherhood: DayOne Baby + A Giveaway

DayOne_10_webDayOne_14_web


I have had a tremendous learning curve since becoming a mother. There have been so many obstacles and challenges to overcome.  One way that I was able to ease my worries was by joining DayOne Baby. Before even becoming pregnant I had girlfriends talk about what an asset it was when becoming a mother.


Let me tell you, I have taken full advantage of DayOne Baby and the services and classes they provide. Both my husband and I took classes before having Jackson, which made us feel more prepared for him to arrive. After he was born I signed up for their Mommy & Me group. Since I didn’t have many friends with newborns and Eric went back to work, I wanted something planned each week to attend. It was a lifesaver. In those early stages of motherhood you are tired, have questions and sometimes feel quite alone – this changed everything. The group of moms that I met were not only supportive but we are now all friends and get together once a month for walks and mom’s night out.

The teachers were incredible and always happy to answer any questions – and I always arrived with a very long list of questions! I feel so supported by the staff who are well-educated and seem to genuinely care about helping you feel supported as a new parent.


As my questions about parenting have simmered down a bit, I am now turning to DayOne Baby for the play classes they offer.  A favorite for me and Jackson are the Music Classes which are so much fun! In addition to classes, I often will stop in to weigh Jackson, pick up an essential we are running low on or if I’m out on a walk I will drop by to change a diaper.

Beside the support I have consistently received from DayOne Baby, another thing I cherish from the time I’ve spent at DayOne are the friends I have made. I love the opportunity to take walks with other mothers and to learn from their experiences and to share our knowledge as new parents.


Since DayOne Baby is such an essential part of our lives and Jackson is turning 6 months today –  I’ve partnered with DayOne Baby on giving away a few of the essentials that have made my transition into motherhood even better. All of these items have helped out in the past six months.

Giveaway: $300 Worth of Minted Holiday Cards!

Minted Giveaway | Sacramento Street


The holiday season is right around the corner – I can taste it! Not only am I excited because our little nugget is set to arrive, but the holiday season is my favorite time of year. There is nothing I love more than the chill in the air, the city glowing with holiday cheer, and seeing the Christmas trees in all of the windows. But what I love most is coming home to a mailbox full of holiday cards.


Each year Eric and I take an evening to sit down and select which holiday card will be gracing the mailboxes of our friends and family. This year, we’re getting a head start by ordering them early with Minted. They just unveiled their 2014 collection that has stunning new designs that are all customizable, they have a foil-pressed option that I can’t get enough of and they feature a free recipient addressing service to make sending your cards that much easier. In my eyes, this is amazing because addressing the cards always takes so much time.

With hundreds of options to choose from this season I wanted to show you a handful of my favorites that I myself am deciding between. Honestly, as I sifted through all of the beautiful options that Minted has to offer I realized that you can’t really go wrong with any of them. Each has a unique quality to it that anyone would love to get in their mailbox.

Holiday Travel with Lo & Sons + a Giveaway

Although Thanksgiving is on the later side this year it feels as though November has flown by incredibly fast. I can’t believe Turkey day is just four days away. ‘Tis the season where everyone will start packing up their bags to either drive or fly to see their loved ones. When it comes to packing for trips I have go-to bags that I know won’t let me down. My ultimate travel bag is the OG from Lo & Sons. When I first discovered Lo & Sons a few years ago I was elated that there was finally a simple, chic bag to carry on a plane that also thought about every organization detail you could want. Yes, for a crazy person like me it was as though Christmas had come early that year. Fast forward to today and I’m still in love with this bag and it goes on every single trip with me — it should have its own passport.

With an array of beautiful colors — I now have the black and navy (a girls gotta have choices), a pocket to place your laptop, iPad, extra shoes, magazines, cell phone and more in this one carry on, it is perfect. I’m always shocked at how many items fit in this one bag, which is good for those long flight or layovers. One of my other favorite features, it slides onto your roller suitcase, so say goodbye to your bag falling anymore. This OG bag will stay in one place.

Now for the fun part — one lucky Sacramento Street reader will win an OG, OMG or their amazing weekender, the Catalina – it’s your choice! Any style or any color! Entering is easy — simply follow the steps in the widget below and that’s it!
