Eat Well. Be Well. Travel Often.

Dinner Noir

October is one of my favorite months for many reasons. First and foremost, it benchmarks the beginning of the Autumnal equinox. And I LOVE Fall. The colorful trees, crispy Autumn air, the nostalgia of Holidays beckoning around the corner and the seasonal viands. From stone fruits, root veggies and hearty soups and stews. October is the perfect month to host a dinner party. Not too mention Halloween. A whimsical Holiday that lends itself to dark, moody vibes set in the occasional haunted space outfitted with a crackling fire for a late night ghost story.

 

Moody October Dinner Table

 

Using muted dark gray and layering in black linens creates depth and a grounding backdrop for all table top decor. I also love using the deepest blood red tones in these roses, and brushed brass and patina’d metals to add a hardware pop. All of these pieces paired with my favorite Bordeaux wine collection and vintage goblets, a moody color palette is born.

 

Moody October Vinatge Bottle

 

A really nice way to add a noir vintage dimension is to find old liquor bottles at your local flea market and use for vases with fresh herbs and candlesticks. You cant possibly have enough candles at a October feast, so stock up. I like to let the candles burn and casually drip around the vessels that hold them providing a lived in sort of look.

  • NEW MOON 🌙 today’s full moon in Capricorn & lunar eclipse is bringing out all the feels. ⚡️ This Full Moon is grounding and is here to help us redirect to our destined path. It’s shining and saying hey you down there- wake the fuck up and stop shrinking. Can I get an AMEN? 🙌🏻
.
Although life has been pretty good lately, I do feel like I’ve been slipping. Slipping on my self respect, what I stand for, what I allow and my self care, that includes my physical and my mental wellbeing. Being a Mom and FT working lady is TOUGH AF. My biggest challenge is TIME! Managing my schedule so I can get all I need to get done AND take care of me.
.
I want to harness this moons power to guide me back to my core which is centered in LOVE, not chasing it, but BEING It. And that will only radiate into my work, my mothering and my self respect and care.
.
Tell me, What’s speaking to you lately? What will you let go of, allow to come in and how will you be grounded moving forward? ⚡️
