I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

As promised, we are excited to share some more fall dinner party inspiration today! This time, our dear friends at Room Forty decided to put together a pop-up dinner in Nashville. The event was a total success and we love all the rustic decor and food ideas. Doesn’t this get you excited for Thanksgiving next week?

That appetizer on the left is fried chicken and waffles. Are you serious? I love it!
