Why I Love Nordmann Fir Christmas Trees

Can’t decide what kind of tree to get? Read this! First of all, let me start by saying that I am a real Christmas tree advocate. Can one advocate for real Christmas trees? Because if so, that’s me. Once when I lived in Fort Worth, I stuffed a seven foot tree in my little four-door…

How to Build a Rose Wall

Y’all should have seen my dad’s face when I told him I was going to need a rose wall for Disney Dinners: Alice in Wonderland. Thought of as Instagram goals and exorbitantly expensive, my dad came up with a way to build a gorgeous rose wall for less than $150! The Rose Table is in no…

Pier 1 Style Box #2

It’s no secret that I love Pier 1. I tag Pier 1 on social media all the time and their items are all over The Rose Table. You may have seen my Pier 1 Style Box article last summer highlighting some their new items. I’m delighted to say that another Pier 1 Style Box has…

Pier 1 Style Box

I squealed with delight when the first ever Pier 1 Style Box appeared on my doorstep. I’m a huge fan of Pier 1 and use a lot of their entertaining pieces here on The Rose Table. In fact, my primary cutting board – the gorgeous, thick wooden one – is one of my prized possessions…

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…
