Happy Wednesday, dear readers! As promised, I’ve created an indulgent menu fit for the most regal of kings! You may be reading this and thinking to yourself, “But Mrs. Buns, the only thing I know how to make for dinner is reservations,” Ha, until now my darling! While dining out has its perks (e.g., no dishes, can I get an amen!), in my humble opinion, nothing says heartfelt love like a delicious home-cooked meal. Whether you’re whipping up this delectable dinner for your husband, father, grandfather, or the whole family, throw on your apron, preheat that oven, and get ready to “Bring the Buns” a la Barefoot Contessa style!
From grandfathers, to dads, to husbands, Father’s Day (Sunday, June 16, mark those calendars!) represents the ideal occasion to celebrate the truly spectacular men in your life. Whether he’s a devoted golfer or gourmet griller, I’ve gathered a collection of beautiful, thoughtful, man-approved treasures (and of course presents I’ve given!) to inspire you as you hunt for a gorgeous gift.
Stay tuned for Wednesday’s post, featuring Father’s Day entertaining tips for a flawless feast the dads in your life are sure to adore!

Who says summer reading is just for the little ones? From getting lost in a thrilling novel, to thumbing through endless pages of gorgeous photographs, books offer us a welcome escape from our everyday lives. Coffee table books in particular, continuously delight and excite me – they feature stunning images and make the perfect display piece for what else, a coffee table! However, coffee table books can also find a cozy home on a library table, book shelf, side table, etc. It’s really up to you, dear readers!
To guide you on the quest to find truly exquisite and captivating coffee table books, I’ve gathered some of my most cherished texts (and some on my wish list!) Enjoy, darlings!
