An Elegant Tablescape, For A Cause

A few weeks ago I had the honor of hosting an intimate dinner with some of my fellow bloggers at the most beautiful venue – Big Daddy’s Antiques. It’s quite possible that you’ve seen photos of Big Daddy’s on Pinterest or Instagram. They’re a massive antiques showroom that is like a furniture lover’s playground, full from corner to corner with one of a kind vintage finds. I attended an event there a while back and fell in love, and always hoped to host my own little party there one day.

I recently had the opportunity to make that dream come true, and invited some of my oldest and newest friends in the blogging world to join me. As you guys might know, I’m an ambassador for Step Up Women’s Network which mentors young girls, and I felt like I wanted to share information about the charity with this amazing group of women. With everything going on in the world right now, it’s the perfect moment for people to come together and raise up their communities by getting involved. If the Women’s March on Washington showed us anything, it’s that women can organize huge movement and change when we support one another.

Check out our gorgeous tablescape below! The food was delish, and the company was even better.

  • We just booked our first ever Summer family vacay! I'm so excited I'm packing already. Today on #FrontRoe I'm sharing my top holiday essentials - not just because they're chic, but because they're multi-tasking, comfy, and easy (my new priorities in life - LOL!)

  • Does anyone else own a scrapbook?! 📚🤣If you don't necessarily consider yourself to be an 'artistic' person but still enjoy getting creative, you've got to try scrapbooking! I've been doing it ever since I was young (and even kept a wedding inspo moodboard secret from Mackenzie for a few years before we got engaged, lol) - and it's such a fun, easy way to express yourself. See how to make your own at the link in my bio

  • All this wedding fever is making me emotional! So I thought I’d share our wedding video. 2 years ago, @mackenziehunkin & I were married right next to Windsor... see if you can spot the castle! 
Congratulations to the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex 👑💕

  • Happy Mother’s Day!
I want to dedicate this post to one of my dearest friends, who became a Mummy to premature surrogate twins this year, only to tragically lose them a few hours later, as she held them in her arms. My friend had been through years of trying for a baby through IVF, and finally - after years of hope and patience - we all felt her and her husband’s dream of becoming parents was about to come true.
That heart-breaking day also happened to be the date Honor was born, so the poignancy was all the sharper. I still remember the moment I learned the news. My own mum was with me, and we wept silently, hugging. 
I fully expected my friend to avoid Mackenzie and I for a while, to deal with her grief. Surely being around a newborn would just be too much. But testament to her angelic, brave character, she asked to come over. I’ll never forget the warmth and love in her eyes as she held Honor tight. She said she was full of hope. She said that the twins would be watching over, helping and guiding them on their continued journey to have a baby. 
You’d think that would be enough to focus on, but no. Instead, this wonderful couple decided to set up @pompomsandstardust , a charity not only raising money to help other people have surrogate children, but one that offers crucial (and lacking) advice and support to the ‘IP’s’ (intended parents), along their journey. 
If you or your loved ones have been through a difficult time conceiving, my heart goes out to you- I wish you strength, perseverance- and please feel free to share your story below.
The charity website will be up soon with more information, but for now follow @pompomsandstardust 💫
  • I don’t usually post throwbacks, but 1. my face ain’t cute right now after waaaay too little sleep! And 2. I just found this pic from the moment we arrived on honeymoon. I stepped out onto our balcony in Positano and took a deep breath and wow - what a view! Take me back to Italy!
