4th of July tablescapes!

The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays, it is also my grandmothers birthday so we always have a big celebration every year, lots food, fun, family, and fireworks! Normally we have a large BBQ by the pool and have 2 or 3 tables set up with dinner and desserts, with that many tables and that many people it can only mean one thing, AMAZING TABLESCAPES!!!!!

I have posted a few pics of my favorites and hopefully they will give you inspiration for your holiday decorating!



Don't those parfait's look delightful?

I will post pictures of the entire collection when I am finished sketching, themes go from Halloween to Holiday, Christmas to Spring/Summer, should be a lot of fun!

New facebook group!

Hi, I just started a new group on facebook called re-ralph. It's a place where you can post all of your Ralph Lauren items that you don't want anymore for sale! I just started it yesterday, but I am sure it will be a big hit, I posted a fun hot pink polo with a green rider as the first item listed for sale! The link to "like" this page is below so spread the word.

Thanks, jennie.!/pages/Re-ralph/124080310966840?ref=ts

Fall Collections from Vogue

I know, I know, it's summer why am I drooling over the Fall collections in Vogue this month? I just adore the photo spread in this month's issue featuring Ewan McGregor, not only is he devastatingly handsome, but the clothes are to die for. From the poufy hair to the tailored suits I can't get enough of these pictures. They are colorful yet dramatic and have all the makings of a main line couple's daily dramas. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

Have a fun and playful weekend.

New Portfolio web site

After months of hard work I have finally finished my portfolio web site............for now. This was my first venture in hand coding HTML pages and it was a feat in the beginning, but became easier as the months went by and it is now a breeze! Wow I never thought I would say that about hand coding! :) I will begin learning flash animation in the fall and I am very excited to animate all the bees, clouds, birds, and flowers on my page, I think it will be a lot of fun and an amazing learning experience! I have provided the link to my portfolio below and always welcome comments.

Have a graet weekend!

Grace Kelly style icon

Last week I wrote a post on the dresses of Audrey Hepburn, this week I got an email update from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London which read that most of Grace Kelly's costumes from movies and her life will be on display this summer. I am so excited to view this collection as she is definately one of my most favorite actresses of all time. Having lived in the suburbs of Philadelphia I have driven by her family home and researched her childhood growing up in Philly so this is just another historic viewing of her life and style. You can visit the museum website for more information about tickets and dates.

I have included pictures of a few of the gowns that will be on display!


Probably one of my most favorite movies with Frank Sinatra.

Rear Window one of my favorites!

The Audrey Hepburn Collection

I am a huge Audrey Hepburn fan, from the clothing to the hairstyles and her movies, I just can't get enough. She had such style and grace and was also a very kind and giving person. On that note, some of her amazing costumes are being featured in a traveling show, much like the Princess Diana collection that has been floating around from city to city. I think the show is closed now and most pieces are going to be auctioned off at Christies, but I have found pictures of the show and just knew my blog readers would enjoy seeing some of her amazing pieces.

Enjoy, Jen.

Summer is on it's way!!

I feel like it is officially summertime, it seemed like memorial day weekend just flew by, it will be the 4th of July before we know it! I came across some of my favorite summer time photos, they make me want to have a poolside BBQ on the beach with family and friends. I also love decorating for summertime, it seems like i gravitate towards lighter, airy colors, things that remind me of the beach and the pool, enjoy!

                                I just adore this pink stripe with the black and white polka dot detail, so cute!

Perfect beach house!

Amazing outdoor space!
