Fans of Aerin Lauder and her Aerin lifestyle brand will be happy to know she has launched a new line at Williams-Sonoma. Called The AERIN Collection, it's inspired by three major influences in her life: her mother, Jo Carole; her grandmother, Estée Lauder, founder of the cosmetics empire; and the Lauder family's estate in Palm Beach. That's evident in the collection's use of sea shells, natural elements including straw, touches of blue, and accents of gold, which her grandmother taught her to treat as a neutral. 

This video from Architectural Digest gives you a peek inside the Lauder's airy and elegant tropical estate.

"My grandmother said everything can be beautiful if you take the time," says Aerin in one of the videos about the collection. "Whether it's your kitchen, desk or night table, it's those finishing touches - fresh flowers or a beautiful picture frame - that make a home a home.

The Salvation Army Women's Auxiliary's annual Festival of Tables fundraiser is always filled with fabulous ideas for creating a spectacular tablescape. Here are The O Report's favorite details from the 2017 event held in April at the Sheraton/Le Meridien. 

Think outside the jewelry box and use your necklaces as napkin ties and casually place rings on the silverware as shown at the Beauty With Bling table (photo above) decorated by Nadela Chambers-Miller and Traci Lynn Fashion Jewelry. It would be extra fun to use glitzy but inexpensive costume jewelry rings on the silverware and then let guests take the rings home as party favors. 

A perfect teacup of roses at the Alice in Wonderland-inspired I Had The Most Peculiar Dream table decorated by Debra Brown of Bee Seniorized. This table was filled with exquisite little details including the clever clock chargers. 

Legendary interior designer Tim Bagwell used his signature animal prints for this chic jungle theme table. Notice the placecard that says Patsy Drummond because if you're ever at a dinner party and see her seated next to you, you know you're at the right event. 

Pages from antique books were turned into works of art including a wedding cake and gown at the spectacular Here Comes The Bride table decorated by Tommy Braswell of Braswell Interiors

A cute S'more station was one of the darling details at the Going To The River table decorated by Tammy Ashmore

A teapot filled with bright blooms and a monogrammed linen napkin were so proper and pretty at the Garden Tea Party table decorated by Margot Smith
