Yummy Holiday Dessert Bar

I have followed Amy Atlas and all her happenings for a few year now {along with Mindy Weiss, Amy is one of my all time favourite event planning icons} and her work never ever falls short of amazing!

Amy is queen of dessert tables; or as it says on her website “entertaining expert, baking and crafting stylist”!

Here is a holiday dessert table Amy featured this week on her blog. This ridiculously adorable dessert bar was created by RubyJu. Perfect for the holidays!

Merry Christmas Everyone! I will be back next week to finish my Ten Days of Etsy Finds!

The Most Ridiculous Wedding Event Ever 2!

Most of you reading this right now know that I am very fond of the incredibly talented Mrs. Mindy Weiss. She is the go-to gal for all things wedding…. and has planned some of the most extraordinary events throughout the U.S.

She was the brains behind a few of my fav celeb weddings; Jessica Simpson, Hilary Duff, Ashlee Simpson, Pink …. just to name a few! Seriously… check out her client list! She’s incredible… and I follow her every move. She’s sorta my Martha in the wedding and event planning world!

For the past two years Mindy and friends have shared their incredible talents with wedding enthusiasts and brides-to-be via The Most Ridiculous Wedding Event Ever! It’s insane! Mindy gathers the who’s who from the wedding industry for boot camps, workshops and an over-the-top parties…

My mission is to attend #3 next year! Seriously…. it’s my goal! For a few years now I have wanted to take a trip back to California, and now I have the perfect reason! :)

Here are some photos from The Most Ridiculous Wedding Event Ever 2 that took place this past month! Enjoy….!

OK… did you see that cereal in a mason jar?! So simple… and absolutely adorable!

Mindy is my inspiration… and has been for many years! Check out her blog and start obsessing…

Dinner Party Halloween Style!

I love, love, love Halloween! Last year at this time I was a bridesmaid in my beautiful sister-in-laws wedding! It was fantastic. FULL of Halloween spirit, right down to the candy center-pieces!

I love the crisp air, the tricker-treaters, and the way my family friendly neighborhood is filled with children. Love every moment.

This year I got together with a few of my favs to plan a spooooky Halloween dinner party! I have my craft hat on and I am ready to bring it!

While surfin’ (you guessed it) Martha Stewart’s fab site, I came across a few of these ideas….she calls them “Fast and Fearsome Crafts”…. oh Martha, how you inspire me.
