The Design of a Dinner Party

I was asked by blog mate Jocelyn to help her bring her upcoming dinner party to the next level. She wasn’t able to get away on a winter holiday this past year and so decided to invest in hosting an amazing dinner party to celebrate with some close friends. You can read a recap on Joc’s version of the night here. I’m going to give you a little insight into how this dinner party came together from a design standpoint.

My husband and I recently purchased a new house (yay!) and with the possession date fast approaching, I have all things 'home' on my mind.  And at the top of my list- decorating.  I have been searching furniture retailers in store and online for inspiration to create my dream home.  Today I'm sharing some of my favourite pieces for the living room, as well as some gorgeous spaces I am lusting over.  

I have a passion for all things vintage, antique, reclaimed, recovered and re-loved…anything with a good story and unique visual. If you also have a taste for unique, vintage or custom design, you're going to love it at Hiddenstitch in Saskatoon (I do!). Owner, designer and creatively inspiring woman, Ricki Skoretz describes her work as "discovering the stories of salvageable furniture by reinventing the design and styling of each unique piece". Read on to join me (Susan) on a recent visit where she helped to reinvent something I almost threw in the garbage.
