Hospitality is in my DNA. I founded Home with a Twist, a daughter’s twist on her mother’s traditions, in memory of my mother to celebrate her life and the gifts she shared with me. Mother loved to celebrate life’s occasions – big and small.

She taught me how to prepare fabulous food, entertain guests with style and design a traditional home with a pop of color and a splash of animal print. Share my fondness of blending Mother’s mid-century style with a modern spin.

𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩'𝙨 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙛𝙖𝙫𝙤𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙚 𝘾𝙝𝙧𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙢𝙖𝙨 𝙙𝙚𝙘𝙤𝙧 𝙩𝙤 𝙪𝙣𝙥𝙖𝙘𝙠? Santa mugs are my crush! I just adore taking my first cocoa of the season in my collection of mugs. I added a few vintage ones this year I'll share soon. 

Speaking of cocoa - the cocoa bean is a seed and a seed is technically a nut. The seed comes from a nut inside a fruit. So technically, cocoa is a fruit, therefore you can drink as much cocoa as you want! Santa approves!😛🎅

𝐌𝐲 𝐟𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐠𝐢𝐟𝐭 𝐰𝐫𝐚𝐩. The presentation of a gift is everything and I adore @rubystripe! Their quality is not your ordinary tissue-thin wrap and the designs remind me of the patterns from my days serving as my mother's official Chief of Reeves Gift Wrap! 

Mother set up a card table in the guest room filled with rolls of wrapping paper, tissue, boxes and bows. I earned 25 cents for each package I wrapped, but no two could be alike. Oh, what fun!

𝗣𝘂𝗺𝗽𝗸𝗶𝗻 𝗦𝗽𝗶𝗰𝗲 𝗠𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗶. I'm sharing this creamy, smooth ultimate autumnal sip recipe on the blog.  It's the perfect welcome cocktail as your guests arrive for the big Thanksgiving meal.

Happy Thanksgiving y'all.

"I would rather feel bad in Maine, than feel good everywhere else." E.B. White

We've packed alot into this week of our annual pilgrimage to our favorite place. Joined by my besties, we've laughed, cried, breathed in  vitamin sea, leaf peeped, taken long walks along the Marginal Way, eaten our weight in lobster, and shopped small.

Until 2022, leave the lights on @thetrellishouse.

𝗙𝗶𝘃𝗲 𝗺𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝘀𝗹𝗲𝗲𝗽𝘀. I can't wait to land in my happy place Ogunquit, Maine. We discovered this little slice of heaven through my friend Holley. Our first visit to The Trellis House was in 2017. The innkeepers, Laurence and Glen, are gracious and loving and we have grown to love them like family. Their properties are stunning and accommodate every traveler style -  B&B for ultimate pampering or studios for flexibility.

Follow me next week in my stories as I share 𝗠𝗲𝗹𝗶𝘀𝘀𝗮'𝘀 𝗠𝗮𝗶𝗻𝗲 𝗘𝘃𝗲𝗻𝘁 capturing my adventures in this glorious seaside town. We may host a Facebook LIVE interview if I can talk the boys into it.

𝙈𝙖𝙧𝙩𝙝𝙖'𝙨 𝙏𝙖𝙗𝙡𝙚. I've recently started collecting Franciscan Ware Desert Rose china. I went to an estate sale over the weekend and found a lovely set of mugs, small and precious, a few small brass trays, a set of gold flatware and a 1971 Southern Living cookbook (I'll share the best thing I found for later).

All of the lovely belonged to Martha who passed away over the summer, 94 years young. She loved to entertain, hosting parties in her home. She even served as a Miss Texas chaperone in the 70s. 

I love knowing I can share my gifts of hospitality using Martha's favorite things. Her legacy lives on. So today, I set my table in honor of Martha.

𝗞𝗶𝗽𝘀 𝗕𝗮𝘆 𝗗𝗲𝗰𝗼𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗼𝗿 𝗦𝗵𝗼𝘄 𝗛𝗼𝘂𝘀𝗲 is a must-see. Set in a Georgian estate located in the Old Preston Hollow district, the showcase features the creative compositions of 26 designers from across the country.  

I went yesterday with my twin @catherinewhite.art and we drooled over every single room. But, since we both love color, this bright and lively pink and orange family room by Amanda Lantz @lantzcollective was our fave. 

Look at the gallery wall, the orange velvet couch, There's a surprise touch on the banister I'll share another day. Let's just saw a splash of animal print is like Vitamin C - you need it everyday. 

Ticket proceeds benefit the Kips Bay Girls & Boys Club. #kipsbaydallas2021

👻𝗦𝗶𝘁 𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗕𝗢𝗢. When I found these beautiful black dishes at Target I knew they'd make a fun tablescape for Halloween. 🎃

I gathered up things I already had in my party pantry -  black and white Buffalo plaid linens and napkins from @amymontgomeryhome, pumpkin appetizer plates, Mexican confetti glassware, bamboo flatware and my @totallytikaa inspired painted pumpkin filled with hot pink and orange Gerber daisies. 

My favorite - @brachscandy Fall cream candy mix poured inside a margarita glass. I even used a tiny pumpkin to hold a lucite placecard.  Little bats hover over the napkin and on top of the pumpkin.  It's totally bewitching. 🧙

🧙 𝘼 𝘽𝙚𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙘𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙁𝙧𝙤𝙣𝙩 𝙀𝙣𝙩𝙧𝙮 doesn't have to be costly. Make it adorable with what you already have.

This year I decided not to spend all the money on real pumpkins. So I went with a mix of painted faux and a few real pumpkins. I already had the sphere boxwoods and one day it came to me I could add a witch hat for whimsy. 

Hop over to my reels to see how to recreate your own "Bewitched" front entry - song included.🧙

𝗦𝗼𝗺𝗲𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗼𝗹𝗱, 𝘀𝗼𝗺𝗲𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗻𝗲𝘄, 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘀𝗼𝗺𝗲𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗯𝗹𝘂𝗲. I have my grandmother's MCM sewing table. The machine inside is long gone but it hasn't stopped me from using the table. I spiffed up the drawer pulls with a smidge of Rub-n-buff.

The new to me pink lamp is from @fortworththewait. I switched out the pleated shade for a drum shade.  I named the lamp Blanche - tall and curvy she owns the room.

And lastly the blue Chinoiserie foot basin I filled with a huge faux orchid deconstructed from another pot and filled it with green moss. The gold pair of mirrors are a long ago purchase from Target.

They look stunning sitting on vintage silver pieces with Blendo cups from @longgamebarware and vintage sake cups. Art tells a story, and this vignette says, "the girl who lives here loves color!"
