Hello Eddie Ross

He is coming! I was so excited to see that Eddie Ross will be making his way to the Chicago area this June. I have already RSVP'd for both events. The first event he will be talking about presentation of food/drink/etc for entertaining, and the second event is one of his infamous flea market trips where you walk around with him and see what he would pick out and what his creative mind would do with it. The first event Eddie is having is with the owner of Scentimental Gardens in Geneva. Eddie seems to be impressed with her party throwing skills so I can only imagine what she does must be pretty amazing. The stores website also makes the shop look pretty great, lots of antiques, garden furniture, and decor accessories - definitely a place I am going to have to check out.

I love interior design (clearly) but I also love event design - anything from weddings to birthday parties to holidays in your own home. I just don't think it gets much better than being surrounded by people you love in a beautiful environment you've created. Eddie Ross is a superstar in all design areas. His floral design, table settings, and home projects have me completely obsessed. So to say I'm excited is definitely an understatement. Here are some of my favorite presentations of Eddie's.

Peonies and ranunculus are my absolute favorite and I adore how they look on black here.

Who wouldn't enjoy a table like this for Christmas Dinner

You can never go wrong with flowering branches. I love the way they look and they add so much height to a space visually.

Closet turned beautiful bar - why not?!

I love this wreath - this project is on my to do list for next Holiday season.

The infamous secretary makeover.

If you are in the Chicago area I'd look into signing up, I really don't think you'll be sorry!
