A Palm Springs Inspired Summer Party

Summer is upon us, folks! You guys may know that I’m a big fan of vino, and the season of sipping crisp white wine in the sunshine is finally here. I’m so excited to partner with Ecco Domani in showing you guys this limited edition Pinot Grigio bottle designed by Christian Siriano, with a Summer afternoon by the pool – Slim Aarons style!

Slim Aarons is my favorite photographer, and when I saw the new bottle was inspired by retro Palm Springs, I was thrilled! We recently spent our honeymoon in Positano and the bright colors and vibrancy of the people, culture and coastline is so uplifting and inspiring, and totally reminded me of my favorite Slim Aarons work. I wanted to recreate this feeling for our little shindig, and our backyard is the perfect setting: we have a large rustic wooden table, bougainvillea pink everywhere, and of course – a pool to lounge by.

To style this poolside lunch, I went for bright pink and green flowers inspired by the design on the bottle (to read my tips on how to make a Summer flower arrangement like this, click here). For food, I made a simple farmer’s market salad, roasted corn on the cob, and set out a couple Mediterranean nibbles like hummus and pita chips. All the colors are so fresh and inviting, and the bottle ended up looking like part of the centerpiece!

Finally, the drinks – I set out a couple chilled bottles of Ecco Domani’s delish, crisp Pinot Grigio, but wanted to switch it out by also making ‘Clerico’ – a fruity white sangria for the table. This recipe is so easy and delish, you have to try it (full recipe here). To top it all off, I went for a breezy, off-shoulder dress that is totally something you’d see me wear in Palm Springs. Needless to say, our Summer afternoon party was a big success!

  • 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

  • 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 💫
