Autumn is Here… Bring on the Party

Fall Party!

I can’t believe it’s already FALL! How did that happen so quickly?! I’m excited for cozy sweaters, hot cocoa and my leather riding boots (LOVE fall fashion)… but I can think of one more reason to get giddy! Fall parties! A great way to announce the new season is by centering your next get-together around an Autumn theme. I’m resurrecting Hostess with the Mostess’s Fall Party post from last November’s Real Parties series to bring you these beautiful DIY tablescapes and decorations. And because when Jenn originally shared over at HWTM, I loved it TOO much!

Courtney Toney of Joyful Weddings & Events shared these amazing pictures and crafty ideas with HWTM: “My husband and I decided to start the tradition of throwing a party on the first day of each new season. We love the change that the start of a new season brings: the freshness, the excitement, the inspiration!”

Closet to Office 5

Think of all of the great nooks & crannies in your home that could be made over. Closets, for the most part, are underutilized and poorly ordered — pulling everything out and re-alloting your closet space with the correct proportion of shelves, bins and boxes is a Saturday afternoon’s worth of work (but well worth it!). If you’re lucky enough to have an empty closet for ‘your’ space — it’s time to consider what mod wallpaper print you’ll put up, what brilliant paint color you can find and how to finish a quick DIY desk (just one giant shelf with extra supports… but we’ll talk more about that after the jump!)

Spooky Cake Pops!!

Bakerella is so creative! These cake pops are part of their signature line of cake deliciousness on a lollipop, but are adorablely decorated for Halloween!!

The mummys were my favorite — but the witches, spiders & pumpkins are on my list for this year!

Spooky Cake Pops 3

The inner cake ball (Bakerella’s favorite to use is red velvet) is very yummy, but I must admit a bit more difficult to craft into these perfect little cake pops than I was expecting. I found a quick and easy solution to make these in lickity split time! (no pun intended…) Continue reading
