Thanksgiving Dinner Party Table Decor
Last year we hosted Thanksgiving in San Diego – here is a peek at our tables! In complete disclosure – since we live in San Diego, beautiful weather made it possible for us to host Thanksgiving outdoors. Simple solar powered patio lights and lots of candles provided enough light even after sunset. As you can see, we tried to mix elegant with fanciful touches. Continue Reading →
More Thanksgiving Essentials
We thought we had pretty much covered anything and everything you might need or want for Thanksgiving in our Thanksgiving Dinner Party Essentials but turns out, every year we find more great “essentials”.

It is still not too late to begin planning this year's family Halloween party! Some of our favorite childhood memories are the years we all met at Max, Harry & Jack's house for a fun pre-trick or treating Halloween dinner party. Their mom, Karen, always had a healthy dinner planned so the kids would not dive right into their trick or treat bags before all the parents had a chance to go through the treats and weed out any suspicious looking or unwrapped “tricks”.
Other than the actual trick or treating, the kids' favorite part of the night was when Karen escorted them to a huge crafting table set up so each child had their own Halloween Popcorn Ball Decorating Kit. Karen always purchased a basic Halloween Popcorn Ball Decorating Kit from The Popcorn Factory. Each Halloween Popcorn Ball Decorating Kit came with eight of their delicious signature Popcorn Balls and an array of decorating candy extras – basically, everything you would need to transform the yummy popcorn balls into ghoulies and ghosties and delicious things that go bump in the night. It truly was great family fun!
