Flag Drinks

I am still in love with this cute drink idea I created for the 4th of July last year.  I made mini margaritas with Adult Limeade & arranged them like the USA flag.  

For the blue margs, I blended AL, blue curaçao & ice.  Top with white candy stars. For the red, blend puréed strawberries, AL & ice.  For the ice, blend AL & ice. To serve, mix everything ahead & store directly in your freezer.  Come party time it will be ready to go. 

You could also make a NA version with fruit ices or even easier, buy red, white & blue slurpees from your local convenience store.

#TBT powder room

It is been almost 10 years since I designed this Spanish inspired powder room for clients in Las Sendas. I am still in love with the gorgeous Malibu tile, custom carved wood vanity, forged copper vessel sink and all the other beautiful pieces that complete the space. 

My clients are still crazy about this space & so am I!

Cabin Kits

Every year my boys go up with my parents to the cabin up north. It's a special time with their grandparents and they love going every year. I always send a little something fun from home to let them know we love them and are thinking of them. This year I just made simple kits for fun and included their favorite candy, glow sticks, squirt gun & a new card game. 

There is only one thing the cabin doesn't  have is anything electronic. The cabin sits above the Creek and the boys spend the days playing in the water all day and explore the gorgeous forest.  What lucky boys they are!
