New House!

The Rose Table turns two today! Thank you all for reading, sharing, and cooking with me. These last two years have been an absolute blast. I have lots of fun things planned for the next year, but I thought today would be a great day to talk a little bit about the new setting of The…

The Rose Table is Moving!

You read that correctly. This might come as a shock to some, but it won’t be shocking to any of my best friends, who know how sick of driving I am. Most of my work is in Dallas and has been for quite some time. Sometime I spend three hours a day in the car driving…

Welcome to Wonderland

I was never a big fan of Alice, but I adore the idea of Wonderland. I’ve always loved spending time outside. Now my backyard is my own personal oasis, a safe space for me to relax after a long day, to drink coffee every morning, to entertain my friends, to harvest the literal fruits of my labor,…

New Flagstone Garden Path

My flagstone patio has always seemed a little random. Why? Because it’s not connected to anything. I haven’t used it as much as I would like because you have to walk through the grass to get to it. Ladies in heels don’t appreciate that when they come over, especially if it’s been raining. I decided to…

Pottery Barn’s City Mugs

I’m in love and I don’t care who knows it! I’ve long been a fan of Pottery Barn’s relaxed style and, even during my tightest budget years post college, could always be seen perusing the sale corner and lusting after everything else. I proudly host dinner parties on the Emma dishes, serve drinks out of…

Custom Grill Table

A real grill master needs a real outdoor kitchen, right? Thanks to a talented friend, I have a fighting chance! This blog is dedicated to her for thoughtfully building me a custom pine grill table. You can all thank Katherine for the grill recipes that are coming your way!

Poppy Painting

My front door was seriously lacking in personality prior to this weekend and I decided it was time for that to change. I chose Behr California Poppy for my front and back door, which really pops against the freshly painted white trim. I also straightened and rearranged the patio to make it more functional. A…

Easy, Cheap, Gorgeous Tile Trivets

I’m not a crafty person so if I can do this, anyone can. I was walking through Home Depot earlier today when a tile caught my eye. Then another. And a third. “Trivets! I can make trivets!” I thought. After all, I’ve been meaning to buy some and the tiles were just $1.25 each. The…

Mirror, Mirror, On The Wall…

Well, it’s finally happened. My love of fairytales has taken over my home. You probably knew this would happen ever since the post featuring my Butterfly Bench, which sits next to the Dream Come True and Disneyland roses. I’ve never ordered anything from – nor had I ever heard of – Through The Country Door….
