Whether you’re planning a weekend mid-day gathering or workweek, at-home power lunch, this spread is for you. Digging this pinstripes and Panzanella Salad bar.


In the April issue of 425 Magazine, ( < CLICK online! Plus, on newsstands now! ) I set out a beautiful and healthful,  spring panzanella salad bar with plenty of extras. Loved partnering with Crate and Barrel, Bellevue, for the tableware and linens for this shoot. SO Pretty, thank you!


The marble and wood Lazy Susan is uber stylish.  It’s loaded with delicious toppings like: radicchio and watermelon radish, homemade brioche croutons, roasted cauliflower, roasted nuts and seeds…and MORE.



Add a white asparagus and leek quiche with an edible floral twist, top it off with a quick, tipsy tiramisu dessert, and wash it down with a light and refreshing wine spritzer.

Then all that’s left, is to invite boss lady women – who inspire, like PR and fashion blogger, Sydney Mintle of Gossip & Glamour and Alisha Ottosen of INTERMIX at The Bellevue Collection. Very happy you could join us! Who run the world?



A big thank you to Alisha and INTERMIX for providing my amazing outfit for the shoot. Loving the leopard jacket, BTW.   {Here’s a peek at my home office.}



As we slide into the weekend, I’ll leave you with THIS super easy cocktail idea from our at-home Power, Work Lunch:

Wine Spritzer with fresh Mint


Place a nice sprig of mint in the bottom of a glass. Add a splash of white wine, like sauvignon blanc. Muddle the mint. Fill the glass with ¾ cup chilled white wine. Top with chilled club soda.
