How Entertaining!

Happy Friday!! 

Thank goodness my weekly saving grace has rolled around again. Seriously, Friday has never looked so good as it has the last few weeks.

I'm hosting a luncheon at my house on Saturday for some of the ladies I work with, and I have had entertaining on the brain lately! These are a few of the images I've had tucked away in my entertaining file.

Enjoy, dolls!


What could be more charming than these darling burlap covered pots?


Wouldn't is be fantastic to sip a fall punch or tea from these dispensers?


You knew I had to throw in some pumpkins, right?


There's something so lovely and chic about a chandelier....


I love innovative entertaining ideas. These paper flowers are brilliant!


I have loved this perfume bar since I first laid eyes on it!


Any of these flower arrangements would be fantastic for a little get-together.


Any of these sweet treats would please your guests, don't you think?!


Images here here, here, here, here, here

And, of course, what could be more fantastic than this lovely outdoor setting? Look at the little cushions on the tree stumps!


My best friends, Kelsey and Lauren, are coming into town this evening! So excited to be back together again!

I will be sure to take lots of pictures at the luncheon tomorrow! It's my first official 'party' since I moved into my townhouse!

Have a wonderful day, lovely readers!

Music Info:
Artist: Frank Sinatra
Song: I've Got You Under My Skin

Are those chocolate peanut bars? YUM. The flowers are so beautiful. And I love the strings of white lights making the chandelier type thing at the outdoor table. Hope you have a great weekend too!
