At home in NYC, I love coming up with fun ways to entertain my friends. When I order in, take-out or cook, I always tend to sit on the floor around my coffee table to eat, rather than actually using my dining room table. It’s such a NYC thing and it feels so natural. Right now, I’ve completely made my home more lovable thanks to Calypso St. Barth‘s home décor collection. They have beautiful wood table settings, Mediterranean-inspired vases, luxurious blankets, and stunning fuzzy pillows. And omg, you must smell their candles. They are addicting and add such a sophisticated feel to any romantic evening. I wanted to celebrate a perfect fall night with friends, overlooking the city skyline, and what better way than to throw a dinner party, completely bohemian style. I was thinking a relaxing get together, barefoot, and sitting on super cozy pillows around my table on the floor. And with our very own chef, the incredible Joseph Yoon of Yummy Eats, to create some incredible dishes for us! We had a mouthwatering 10-course meal made in my kitchen! He couldn’t believe what appetites we had, since we completely licked our plates clean. His amazing energy just lit up our living room. We couldn’t wait to try each dish.
But getting ready and setting up for a special night with friends is the best part; from picking our outfits to snipping some fresh roses for the table setting to putting the blankets out just right. I went with this beautiful Calypso St. Barth‘s wine colored maxi dress that I picked out at their Meatpacking boutique. It’s simple yet so luxurious. It’s totally a piece you will wear over and over again. All of my gal pals wore a piece from the latest Calypso St. Barth’s collection as well; sparkling velvet tunics, flowing silk blouses, and embroidered bell-sleeves.
