Food Topiaries

Presentation is everything. That’s why I love to incorporate interesting food displays into entertaining. With one of the major holiday icons being a Christmas tree, what better tool to use than the foam craft cone, to create lovely food displays? You can begin with an appetizer tree. Who wouldn’t want to eat their veggies when […]

"Let It Snow" Christmas Party

Let It Snow, let it snow, let it snow… Friday night was our 3rd annual Ladie’s Night gift exchange, and this year I decided on a “Let It Snow” theme with white, silver, and icy blue accents. Of course you can’t have a ‘snow’ theme without snowflakes so there were plenty of those as well. […]

Things Wrapped Up Like A Gift

Sounds like the old Pyramid game show, but ‘things wrapped up like a gift’ can be so pretty for Holiday decor… Create a floral ‘gift’ with blocks of floral foam, small simple flowers, and a big bow! Use pearl-tipped pins to hold the flowers in place and add extra detail. Wrap an everyday pillow with […]

In the book, Carmen, a professional organizer, offers so much advice on […]

Thanksgiving Cocktails

Autumn-cocktails

By my estimation, you have just about enough time to run out and get the ingredients to put together one of these delicious drinks. The colors are perfect for Thanksgiving, and the spicy flavors echo that of pumpkin pies, and yam casseroles. If you like Spiced Rum (which I do) try this hot cider punch […]
