Getting to Know Kerr Cellars

Happy Wine Wednesday, Rosies! I experienced Kerr Cellars for the first time yesterday and just have to tell you about this incredible wine. Founded by golf superstar Cristie Kerr (“the best putter ever” according to my dad), Kerr Cellars is dedicated to overdelivering in quality with every sip. Cristie was first introduced to winemaking in Napa…

Sunset Cruise

If you follow me on Instagram, you are well versed with the lake life my family enjoys at my parents’ lake house in east Texas but I rarely talk about the lake here on my website. My friend Sarah came to visit me from Los Angeles and we took her out to the lake this…

A Great Day for Rosé

Happy National Wine Day! It’s a great day for rosé, don’t you think? Kuhlman Cellars has some of my favorite rosés. Their winemaker Bénédicte Rhyne is from Provence and I feel like you can taste a bit of that French passion for wine in every sip. Today we’re talking about the 2020 Kuhlmanation Estate Rosé…

Charcuterie and Albariño at San Martiño

Oh, what a night! I had the loveliest time at San Martiño Winery & Vineyards with my friend Jessica this evening. This hidden gem is in my darling lakeside town of Rockwall, Texas about thirty minutes east of Dallas. It’s a small, family-owned vineyard with exception wine. The family has been making wine in northern…

Spa Garden Party

I don’t talk about this often here on The Rose Table, but I am a huge at-home spa person. I do a manicure and facial every week, a pedicure and foot soak/scrub every other week, and I love to have girlfriends over for spa parties. Normally I set everything up inside but the garden is…

Visiting Efurd Orchards

It’s a beautiful day in Texas, 75 degrees with a light breeze and no clouds in sight. I’m working from my parents’ lake house in east Texas this week and we decided to take a break this afternoon to pick up goodies and enjoy homemade ice cream at Efurd Orchards, a place with old Timey charm…

Kabobs and Croquet

Don’t you wish every day could be a perfect spring day in the garden? I had my friends Thi and Simon over recently for an easy dinner on the grill and some croquet. If you’re a fairly new reader, I should tell you that croquet is not a new activity for me. In fact croquet…

Loaded Focaccia

Today in the kitchen we’re taking a trip to Italy! My loaded focaccia is cheesy, flavorful, and easy to make. With mozzarella, homemade pesto, olives, and tomatoes, this focaccia is a dream Italian lunch. I’ve spent a lot of time this past year virtually traveling through YouTube and blogs. I was reading old Europe posts…

All About Hydrangeas

Ahh hydrangeas, how I love thee! There’s something so dramatic about a yard full of the fluffy, brightly colored blooms and no one grows better hydrangeas than my mom. She has blue, pink, white, and green hydrangeas at the lake house and I marvel at them year after year. All of the photos in this…
