DIY Pumpkin Centerpieces

We all love fall, the most wonderful time of the year, filled with pumpkin lattes, pumpkin candles, pumpkin pie, pumpkin facials, and oh yes, what about good ole’ fashioned plain pumpkins?! When my mom told me she was having a fall themed dinner party, I offered to make the tablescape and centerpiece, with what better than…you guessed it… pumpkins!

Place “Cards”

I’m a gold girl, and to me, gold screams fall, so I spray painted miniature pumpkins gold for the place cards and tied hand-written names to the stems with twine.

My First Blogiversary Party

June 2016 marked my first year of blogging, and I’m so excited to share the party I put together for my close family, friends, and readers. Thank you to everyone who attended and to all of you who have helped and supported me along the way. If you have read my blog even one time, it means the world to me.

I couldn’t be more thrilled to have had Kendra Scott in Chicago host my Blogiversary (yup, that’s right, blogging + anniversary = Blogiversay!); I knew that we were a perfect match, from the store’s color scheme, bubbling personalities of the workers, and the impressive jewelry.

I grew up with a mom who was, and still is, the queen of hostessing and throwing parties, and I inherited that hostessing gene. I love throwing parties and dressing up, so I figured my blogging anniversary was as good a time as any to start planning.
