Every once in a while we receive a request that requires us to drop everything and get right on it. Tonight I received such a call from my mom & dad simply asking “Where are your Thanksgiving place cards?” When I went back to our Thanksgiving Entertaining Planning, Ideas, and Supplies package I realized although we had a few cute place card holders featured there were no fabulous place cards. The challenge was on! Continue Reading →
With Halloween parties and Thanksgiving celebrations just around the corner we thought we would share this yummy Pumpkin Martini Recipe posted by Beau-coup on Facebook. Cheers! This Pumpkin Martini Recipe is not only easy to make it is the perfect signature cocktail for all those fall parties because it looks as good as it tastes!
We love this painted pumpkin vase with fresh flowers that showed up on our Facebook feed from Beau-coup, one of our favorite party favor merchants. Yes, flowers always look great in pumpkins but an orange pumpkin with fall flowers is very predictable. All they did in this photo was spray paint this pumpkin white and add a chic contemporary floral arrangement to create a fresh centerpiece look for fall. We love the painted pumpkin displayed on the acacia cake stand also!
We also think this idea would translate well to an intimate dinner party or could even be used at each place setting as a place card / party favor (one per couple is just fine!). Simply use a miniature painted pumpkin and add a handful of freshly picked ombre flowers...
Last night we happened upon a carved pumpkin display with some stunning pumpkin art but we were particularly taken with a pumpkin that had a rectangular cut out specifically designed for inserting an iPad. It was genius and could make for a spectacular Thanksgiving centerpiece especially if you insert your iPad filled with home movies and family photos into this chic painted pumpkin centerpiece. We highly recommend spray painting the cut-out too!
It doesn't take much to figure out that we love flowers. We always have either a fresh floral bouquet, small flower arrangement, or beautiful orchid in every room of our office and home. So not surprisingly, to get in the Halloween spirit we went on a search for just a few of the fun Halloween themed floral arrangements available both for ourselves and to be sent as gifts.
Our first stop was Gift Tree because not only do we like their selections, we know we can count on them for only the freshest flowers delivered in a professional and timely manner. We love the Candy Corn Delight for an all purpose autumn arrangement but if we were hosting a Halloween party, we might have to go with the Ghostly Gardens Bouquet. Truthfully, we keep second guessing ourselves – all of the arrangements are lovely.
