Birthday Picnic

This is a rare personal post on The Rose Table! I had the best birthday today with my friends and I wanted to share some photos with you guys.  I spent all afternoon enjoying some of my favorite things (champagne, cheese, and horses) with some of my favorite people. I didn’t want to cook on…

Fall Rosé Horse Picnic

I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream. I had the Saturday of my dreams. I uncorked one of my finest bottles, my NV Folktale Rosé Brut from Folktale Winery, for happy hour with my beloved horse Prince and gorgeous friend Cathryn. You might remember me raving about this particular bottle during my…

The Victory Cup: My First Polo Match

Prior to Saturday, I had never seen polo before and was so excited for my first match. I took some friends to The Victory Cup at Prestonwood Polo Club in Oak Point, TX, about an hour west of Dallas. It’s an all-day event, but my friends and I got there early since everything that came…

Summer Picnic Inspiration

Need some summer picnic inspiration? You’ve come to the right place! I took some friends out to beautiful Black Star Sport Horses for a summery picnic. My gorgeous, fashionable, lovely friend Wendy Darling (not to be confused with my horse of the same name) and I shared a picnic blanket and collaborated on the design…

Spring Horse Picnic

Ever wonder what the heck I do the day after Disney Dinners? Why I head to the stables for a nice relaxing picnic with my horses! After Beauty and the Beast, I realized that – gasp! – we somehow had some Veuve Clicquot left and I just can’t casually drink Veuve so I decided on…

Carriage Event at Black Star Sport Horses

One of my favorite events of the year is the annual Tejas Carriage Association two-day event at Black Star Sport Horses. Black Star has 255 acres of woods and uses them for an epic cross-country carriage event on Sunday. On Saturday carriages compete in dressage and a cones course. I love setting up a picnic and watching…

New Portraits

I recently had new portraits taken for my website by Emily Trupiano, a.k.a. TruPhoto TX. I thought you might like to see a glimpse into my every day life: coffee under the trees, dinner in the courtyard, wine by the fire pit, and sunset with my horses. I swapped out a nook with a worn…

Prince Turns 20!

My beloved horse turns twenty years-old today. Born on May 18, 1997 in Paducah, Kentucky, he must have been the cutest foal with that giant stingray-shaped star on his face! I’ll never forget the day I met Prince. I met Prince when he was four years old. I had been looking for a horse to…

Wendy Turns Ten!

I can’t believe my horse is ten years old today. She was just a yearling when I bought her. Wendy is really so much more than a horse to me. She’s my first life dream to ever come true and a living, breathing reminder of everything I’m working towards. In some ways she was the…
