An early morning selfie with our cover star, pro party planner Catriona SmartMy wreath is up and awaiting my family’s arrival — wish me luck (and better weather) this year!When it comes to entertaining — especially holiday entertaining — I’m cursed.Five years ago, I offered to host my extended family’s Christmas gathering for the first time. The wreath was hung on the front door, the tree lights were sparkling, the five-pound bourbon-glazed ham was in the oven. And then I looked out the window: nothing but white.It was one of the worst blizzards in recent years, and only four of the 13 guests were able to make it.

Just got my October issue in the mail. The Feasby & Bleeks–designed kitchen (“Fresh Flavours”) was dog ear–worthy!— COLETTE RABBA, @coletterabba, via InstagramWhile you acknowledged the designers and provided sources for products and materials in October’s “Double Take,” there was no mention of the builder, Waterford Homes. I think this is a great omission. However extraordinary the designers’ imaginations, the execution of the design is of equal importance.— JANE PALMERI spent several hours with the October issue today. It was packed with eyepopping inspiration — well done to Beth and the @houseandhomemag team!— MICHELLE HURLEY, @michelle_a_hurley, via InstagramI love the Small Spaces issue you publish every September, but I wish you’d dedicate the whole issue to small spaces. The “Back to Nature” feature had no place in this issue —…
