Picnicking at Shakespeare in the Park

I cannot believe I’ve never been to Shakespeare in the Park before, especially since I love any and every excuse to eat outside on a picnic blanket. Up until my dear friend Matt Holmes was cast as Christopher Marlow in Shakespeare in Love, I had never even heard of Shakespeare Dallas and now I want to…

The Stoneleigh Rosé Garden Party

I had just about the most fabulous Saturday one can have at The Stoneleigh with my friend Rodney this afternoon! This was my first time at The Stoneleigh Rosé Garden Party, formerly called the Pink Party, and it did not disappoint. For my non-Dallas readers: the historic Stoneleigh hotel is located in the very chic…

Game of Thrones High Tea

“When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die.” Can you believe the finale is finally here? I’m not ready. I did certainly get in the spirit this afternoon though with a Game of Thrones high tea with my friend Sylvia! The London Baker in The Colony is known for its Harry…

Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending The Dallas Opera‘s One Night Only Spring Gala feature three internationally acclaimed tenors: Michael Fabiano, Bryan Hymel, and Matthew Polenzani. The talented trio sang selections from Turandot, Pagliacci, Werther, L’elisir d’amore, Fedora, Eugene Onegin and La Gioconda accompanied by The Dallas Opera Orchestra, conducted by the adorable Italian…

Domaine Henri Maire Tasting at Lavendou Bistro

Last night I had the pleasure of attending a six-course wine dinner hosted by winemaker Jacques Hauller of Domaine Henri Maire, a Boisset Collection wine label. Domaine Henri Maire is in the Jura, a wine region I wasn’t previously familiar with in eastern France between Burgundy and Switzerland. Isn’t it lovely? The dinner was held…

Dallas Arboretum Food and Wine Festival 2019

Last year I wrote, “I have decided that the epitome of happiness is an ice cream cone in your left hand, a glass of wine in your right hand, and live jazz during cherry blossom season at The Dallas Arboretum” and I said the exact same thing to my friend Matt this year, as we…

Earnest Donuts

Let’s talk about donuts. I am positively obsessed with the pastry magic that is Earnest Donuts. Dallas Donut blogger Rory (@donutdigest) told me about Earnest Donuts and asked if she could bring some over for my Cinderella Ball. I was ecstatic because donuts are having a total moment in Dallas and I often see them pop…

Enchant Christmas

Exploring the world’s largest Christmas light maze I could not have been more excited to get an invitation to review Enchant Christmas. I saw photos last year and was mesmerized by its beauty. I took my friend Morgan and had the most incredible time getting into the Christmas spirit! Follow me into a world of pure…

Mamma Mia at Brick Road Theatre

My regular readers know what a huge theatre fan I am. You can take the girl off the stage but you can never take the stage outta the girl. I’ve been blown away by every show I’ve seen at Brick Road Theatre and Mamma Mia! is no exception. In fact it’s so good, I saw…

The Dallas Opera First Sight 2018

This was my first time attending The Dallas Opera‘s First Sight event, an annual luncheon and fashion show the day before opening night. This year’s event featured CH Carolina Herrera and catering by Wolfgang Puck. My friend Wendy Darling and I were greeted with champagne brandy cocktails with blood orange slices. A string quartet played…

Adventures in Neverland at Dallas Arboretum

The other day I had the pleasure of exploring the Dallas Arboretum’s annual pumpkin village with my dear friend (and avid Rose Table reader!) Kat. There are a lot of fantastic events in Dallas in the fall but this is one of my favorites! Autumn at the Arboretum boasts 4,500 Chrysanthemums, 150,000 fall blooming plants,…

The Dallas Opera Patron Party

I felt like the luckiest girl in Dallas last night frolicking in the epic gardens of Roxanne and Gene Phillips, who opened up their stunning home for The Dallas Opera Patron Party featuring Bulgari. The soirée is hosted as a thank you to donors prior to The Dallas Opera‘s First Sight / First Night (presented…
