It was a fun filled week with much of the excitement centered around Camille’s Christening. Anyone that knows me knows that I love to host a party. And even though this one did not take place at home (but at this fabulous restaurant in Westchester… www.fortinapizza.com) there were lots of details to attend to. I mean, what’s a party without the details….

~I tried my hand at heat embossing and created these camillia flower note card favors for adults

~Personalized sugar cookies are my new favorite takeaway gift for kids (bye bye party bags)

~I searched on Etsy for some milk glass containers for these pretty purple pansies that I used as centerpieces then took home and planted in the garden

~ And every single party needs a knock out dessert table!

But of course, the real key to a great party is a stunning guest of honor…wearing sequined bloomers!

About Dawn Casale

Barneys New York was the place I called my second home for six years. It was the classroom in which I learned the importance of aesthetic, the power of creativity and the joy of indulgence. At a point in time which I cannot specifically put my finger on, I reflected on my career choices and decided to return to that which I really knew... food and humanity's love of it. I began to think about my childhood and how much of it had been happily spent in the kitchen. The memories of the aromas and flavors that came from my grandmother's kitchen were vivid and exhilarating. That is where I learned about the ritual and significance of food, the sense of happiness and comfort it brought, and the essential elements of quality and care that went into its preparation.
