Another holiday, another themed bar! This time, we’re sticking with a tried and true favorite: the martini bar. It’s classic, simple and always a crowd pleaser! Stock some vodka and gin, add in the mixers—we offered vermouth, olive juice and Lillet—finish with some garnish, and voila! We loved designing this bar with a modern black, white and gold look—highlighted by a custom Martini Bar sign from Surcee Calligraphy and fun black and gold accents like the Crate & Barrel cocktail shaker and McGee & Co. geometric objects. Cheers!
We know, we know, another gift guide! But trust us, this one is different—mainly because we scoured our little town of Easton, Maryland, to hand pick our favorite gift finds of the holiday season. So whether you live here or are planning a visit, make sure you stop by these fabulous stores to check out our picks. Happy holidays and happy shopping!
Still looking for inspiration for your Thanksgiving tablescape? We’ve got you covered! From classic and traditional to bold and earthy, these designs prove Thanksgiving is all about the table—the food, the company and, of course, the place settings! When setting our Thanksgiving table, we like to avoid all things kitschy—namely pumpkins—and embrace the colors of the season—gold and copper metallics, wood tones, and occasionally a pop of bold color in shades of burgundy and berry. Also, don’t be scared to get creative with the place cards: leather, wood, or even magnolia leaves can make for fun additions. Enjoy!
