Easy To Serve Summer Sangria

summer sangria

Hello July!

New York is open from Covid-19 closings.  Things have been quiet on the blog.  If you are following on IG I have been working on client project,  social media collaborations and my own projects…more to come.

The summer heat has been intense this week.   With summer in full swing  and July 4th celebrations coming up I’ve been researching summer receipes.      A cold tall glass of  summer Sangria sounds perfect to enjoy with  family and friends.

Enjoy the flavors of summer with a delicious peach and mango sangria that is easy to make and serve.  Williams-Sonoma Peach and Mango Sangria mix with a touch of tangy citrus makes everyday a sunny, tropical celebration.  The 24 fl. oz makes a traditional or non-alcoholic sangria.

Just add white wine, then garnish with sliced peaches and limes.

For non-alcoholic coolers, combine the mix with sparkling water.  Served chilled over ice.

Make a beautiful presentation with this generously proportion punch bowl set, from Hayneedle.

Peach Sangria Summer

The beautiful glass is entirely handcrafted.    The set includes 1 punch bowl which holds 7 quarts, 6 punch cups and a glass ladle.   I love it because it is dishwasher safe for easy clean up.

Punch bowls have made a comeback from the 1950’s.

Decorating with Vintage Charm

We all need a little retail therapy, right?     Manufacturing new furniture during Covid-19 has slowed down.    However, I have been  sourcing online for some wonderful things to make home feel cozy and gathered while supporting local small business.  Decorating with vintage and new pieces creates a collected room.  There are many designer shops with inventory that could use support.  Shop local and stay safe.   Below are a few pieces I love sourced online and from local vendors.

Design Musing: European Design

Spending more time at home is creating a to-do-list of projects to finish and start for many during Covid -19.  Thinking of designing a room, remember trends come and go.  Good design is timeless, however.    Case in point,  French country style.

Make Your Own Sunshine

There is one thing I do for myself weekly.  It’s not an expensive purchase … although it could be.   Here is a clue, I grown it at home.

It needs sunshine.    Are you following?   It shifts my mindset to happy, sunny days.

Yes, flowers!   I must have blooms or a plant … something alive that wakens the senses.

Flowers are magical, don’t you think?    On cold winter days when there is little sunshine,  fresh flowers, a single rose or a green branch, really brings me a sense of peace and joy helping me make a fresh start during January.  Don’t wait for something good to come your way.  Go find that something.  It’s out there waiting for you.

I think Campbell agrees.

Walk your way to a fresh start

Happy Monday!

Starting January with a New Year reset.  If you are looking for a shift in energy, you are not alone.

I find walking outdoors helps me connect to nature and feel more calm.   Taking a deep breath, getting outside for fresh air and counting our blessings will help our mind set.  Tomorrow, I will be sharing more ways to make a fresh start during January.

Here is a  fun and easy walk in Vernon, NJ.  Want to share a picture of your walk?  Follow me on Instagram @idhomedecor  Tag your photos: #freshstart2021 Remember we are stronger together.

Thanks for stopping by.

Autumn At Home

Hello Autumn

Hello friends,

We continue to stay home during Covid-19 and following the science.   Hope you are staying safe and finding ways to stay positive and creative during this difficult time.

Autumn is in full bloom in the hudson valley.  We feel blessed to be healthy and finding refuge at home.   While apple picking season has ended and pumpkin fields are getting empty there are plenty of  country roads to enjoy the foliage.

Do get outside and enjoy the fresh country air.

I’m working on a new project and some holiday fun! Stay tune for more.
