Bring the Picnic Indoors

Bring the Picnic Indoors | Sacramento Street


Everyone is dreaming of spring, blossoming trees, warm sunshine and temperatures above freezing. With Arctic temperatures hitting most of the country, no one wants to go outside. It’s time to get creative with what you can do indoors. I’ve been day dreaming about gathering friends for an outdoor picnic for months but that’s not really possible for awhile so I decided to bring my picnic indoors. Why should I wait until the weather gets warmer?

My first order of business was to create a cozy spot where everyone would want to sit, eat, drink and enjoy themselves for hours on end. The key ingredient – comfy pillows and blankets to cover the floor. When creating an indoor picnic you want to be sure everyone will want to kick off their shoes, curl up and enjoy each other’s company. Be sure to have yummy treats and wine of course. I referenced our guide to creating the perfect cheese board that our team put together this past fall.

On The Hunt: Jams and Spreads

On The Hunt : Jams and Spreads | Sacramento Street

 

This past summer and fall I went through a serious nesting phase while pregnant. I made dozens of canned pickles and jam. Well, I just used the last spoon full of my homemade jam and my heart sank a little bit. Since it’s not berry season I went on a quest to find an alternative because my mornings and snacks would not be completely with either a jar of preserves, jam or honey. There is nothing I love more than a warm biscuit and tea in the morning.

On The Hunt: Candleholders

In my eyes, you can never have too many candleholders. I use them for just about event dinner party and around our house. They cast a beautiful light that makes dinner parties feel magical and a cozy evening indoors special. There is probably a candle being burned at all hours in our house.


On The Hunt : Candles

1.) Recycled Glass Pillar Candle Holder


2.) Grey Opaque Glass Honeycomb Lantern


3.) Clear Glass Teardrop Lantern Candleholder


As we see a glimmer of hope that spring might be around the corner I’ve pulled together a handful of my must haves for this season that can be used both inside and outside – weather permitting of course! Buy a handful as an excuse to throw a big dinner party with friends. Afterwards you can style them around the house for a new look on your mantle or coffee table.


Check out my favorites over on World Markets blog that will have you inspired to throw a dinner party this weekend!

Add a Piece of Vintage to Your Bar

Chairish | Sacramento Street

 

Whether I’m advising a client or decorating my own home, I love seeing modern, sleek pieces combined with vintage items that have a patina and history to them. Sometimes it can be difficult to know where to start. I suggest you begin with one item and then branch out slowly. A great place to find unique vintage items is Chairish.


I try to pop over to their site every week because they have new merchandise constantly coming in, which means I place items on my wish list. Right now, I’ve been looking for an ice bucket for a clients bar. I found the perfect tray a few months ago and bought the perfect glasses but in order for the bar to be complete, I need to find an ice bucket. I think this is where something vintage can work perfectly. I need your help. Which of these great ice buckets would you choose? I love them all and can’t decide which is my favorite.


Chairish | Sacramento Street

1.) Silver Shot Glasses In Case | 2.) Vintage Italian Ice Bucket

 

3.) Vintage Lassi Cups, Set of 2 | 4.) Antique Swiss Silverplate Lidded Ice bucket

 

5.) Mid-Century Italian Wine Cooler |6.) Vintage Silverplate Ice Bucket


Also, don’t you love these silver shot glasses and Moroccan cup? Those are high on my wish list! Shop more of my favorite vintage bar items over on Chairish.

On The Hunt: Throw Blankets

I know that I’m not alone when I tell all of you that I have an obsession with throw blankets. It’s a problem. I seem to find one where ever I go – whether it’s from traveling, or my go-to shop – I’ll find an excuse for needing it. I tell myself “this would be the perfect addition to that stack on my bookshelf” or “the corner chair needs a new throw to give it an update” or “this would be the perfect picnic blanket.” While I do this with other things as well, throw blankets are a weakness for me  can you blame me?

Since I’ve been on the hunt for a couple throws for a few friends and clients who have been asking, I came across an handful from World Market that I truly love. This grey number is now my car blanket.
