The Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze

Last weekend we went to The Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze at the Van Cortlandt Manor in Croton-on-Hudson, New York. It is truly a site to see, 1000's of amazing carved pumpkins by artists! So much fun and the perfect thing to do this time of year, it makes for a perfect break from the city.

Happy Halloween!

How cute are these costumes from Martha Stewart? As always, they reign in DIY costumes and well everything else, but these costumes are just such sweet little treats to enjoy before this fun Halloween weekend!

Don't you guys miss Martha Stewart Baby? That magazine was sooo good, and so ahead of it's time.

This is our first Halloween as parents so we are skipping the parties our friends are throwing and heading out to a Halloween parade for kids in our neighborhood. Good times!

Have a happy and safe Halloween weekend everyone!

Pretty Knots

I am a bit obsessed with these necklaces by Jaclyn Mayer. Rope has never been so beautiful! And a perfect accessory for Fall/Winter as they would keep your neck warm.....

Sweet Gossip

A couple of weeks back on Gossip Girl this gorgeous cake from Love Street Cakes was the part of a little drama during a wedding scene. In my opinion Archana's creation totally stole the scene! I love the dense layers of flowers & fruit, this is a perfect cake for an early Fall wedding!

Archana's cake was the centerpiece of this dessert table by Amy Atlas that I designed patterns for last summer.
