Tablescape a la Rachel Zoe

This evening, Rachel tweeted: “Setting up for a dinner party for my newly engaged friends!  XoRZ” and attached this picture.

Loving the mod white on white and non-matchy floral arrangements.  I kind of die for the view too.  Bananas!


Happy Halloween!

It’s been a busy week and this weekend I will have my guest room and play room full of house guests.  We are hosting our 3rd annual Halloween play date tomorrow morning and have 45 people coming to our house, 17 of whom are kids! 

So, I have been racing around this week to get ready.  Along with bagels & cream cheese and fruit (oh and bloody marys and mimosas!!), here is some of what will be on the table.  I took a lot of inspiration from my fellow bloggers:

Candy Corn Bark (found via The Picky Apple)


Heather’s Spooky Chex Mix (except I didn’t include peanuts and used corn chex instead of rice chex)


Spider Cupcakes (I found this recipe in a free magazine sent home from pre-school)


Can you say 17 kids flying on a sugar high?  Wish me luck!  I will take pictures to share next week.

Happy Halloween to all! 


party, party, party

I am in the throes of preparing for my sweet little girl’s second birthday party and have A LOT to do before tomorrow at 10.30am.  I thought I would share some inspirational photos of real summer parties that are getting me through the day.  Happy Friday and happy weekend, my friends!








P.S.  Here is a picture of one of her birthday prezzies – I can’t wait to give it to her!
