design || entertaining in a small space
i really love to entertain, having my friends all around, enjoy drinks + yummy bites – especially around the holidays. i wanted to share this shoot i did for style me pretty living
as i’ve said before, my home is not huge – it is roughly around 1500 square feet, so it can be tight quarters. i use every surface to place food + drinks, + mix + match serving ware. i especially love brunch, which i styled out here. you can even be creative with how you store your cutlery, aprons + platters. you can see above i have them hung on the wall as art – functional + creative.
i also wanted to make mention of this new brand that i am truly amazed with – madhouse collection. their plates, platters + plastic twigware were used in the above shoot. i always liked michael aram’s collection, + now he has come out with melamine + plastic options for entertaining. this stuff has blown me away – really! my personal fav – the sea urchin plates from the ocean collection.
special thanks to room & board for letting us shoot in their atlanta showroom. table, buffet, chairs + chandelier from room & board
