May seems to be a month for many gatherings – the Kentucky Derby, Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day and no less than six birthdays.  So we’re brushing off the china, crystal and silver and coming up with creative ways to set the table (yet again!)

Thankfully, Barney’s new lookbook, Table Mates, pairs beautiful table settings with baubles, jewels and gems – everyone knows bit of bling is just the thing that makes a party memorable!  The best part is that there’s something for everyone in these pages, from a stylish black and white look (very Rachel Zoe) to a modern rustic mix perfect for a chic country home.

As far as we know, there’s no rule against matching your jewelry to your plates so we’ll give it a spin the next time we entertain!

A Rue with a View

Rue – June 2013

We’re heading to Knoxville, TN this weekend to cheer for our boys’ rowing club at the USRowing Youth National Championships (we have eight boats competing – a club record!) and looking forward to a little downtime by the shores of Melton Lake.  There’s nothing quite like a quick getaway (and a couple of layovers) to catch up on some long neglected reading and we were excited to see an email from the great team at Rue announcing their very first Wedding and Entertainment issue.  From gift guides and bridal showers, to table settings and great interiors (of course!), here’s a sneak peek of what’s inside:
