More Pumpkins


There is a house a few towns over that carves and displays a ton of pumpkins. I loveee it! How incredible is this?

DIY Glitter Pumpkins

How adorable is this glitter pumpkin candle? This is appropriate for Halloween and Thanksgiving!! What a great accent to the fireplace or kitchen table.

It's Halloween!!

Happy Halloween!!! I <3 Halloween. October is my birthday month, so from the 1st the 31st, I'm in love. I love when the leaves change color, the spooky Halloween stories, football season, everything.

When I saw these Halloween wedding invitations featured on Style Me Pretty created by Inviting Affairs, I died. (muhaha) The illustrations and calligraphy are genius.

Be expecting more spooky posts throughout the day!!

Favorite Wedding Detail: Striped Paper Straws


I LOVE striped paper straws. Its such a simple way to add a little bit of fun and whimsy to your wedding or event. They can come in a variety of colors (with the most common being red, gray, and blue) and are adorable. How can you beat that?!

Backstage at Claire Pettibone by Perfect Bound


I am so jealous after seeing all of the amazing things that went on at the Bridal Market just a few weeks ago. Even though I attended the fabulous Martha Stewart Bridal Market Party (see here and here) I unfortunately was not able to go to any fashions shows. There is always spring time for the Fall 2011 show! =)

These photos were taken by Perfect Bound, an amazing blog that I just discovered a few days ago. Her photos are lovely and give you a sneak peak of what goes on before the models hit the runway.

Honeymoon Hotspot: Peter Island Resort and Spa, British Virgin Islands


It has been a while since I posted some fabulous photos of amazing places to stay on your honeymoon. I recently have wanted to showcase places that really exude the Fall, but then I came across Peter Island Resort and Spa in the British Virgin Islands, and just needed to share!


Kate Spade Inspiration


I am head over heels for kate spade (as you can see again here). For someone who loves to wear black and feels you can never go wrong with neutrals, I am inspired by the amazing use of color and playfulness that is captured in every last ounce of what they do. I am a dedicated facebook follower, and needed to share some recent photos of their new London Pop-Up Shop.

Wedding Details


As I was reading one of my favorite blogs, Lingered Upon (you can spot some of her photos in past posts here and here) I came across a wedding that Alice photographed at The Palace in Sommerset. I just needed to share. These photos are simply stunning, Alice!

Martha Stewart Bridal Market Party 2010, Part 2


While I was at the Martha Stewart Bridal Market Party, I could have sworn that I heard someone say over all the music that they were giving tours of the Martha Stewart offices. I am immediately on the hunt to find out where that line starts! There has always been a part of me that has wanted to work in an office environment like that. So I jumped at the chance to take a glimpse at what it was like!

The offices were covered in inspiration boards of past and future magazines. I was like a kid in a candy shop.

Amazing. Every last little thing had a label and a place. The organization was incredible. This is how a prop room should look!

Yes, that is someones office. How could you not love going to work everyday with an office like that!

Last but not least the Christmas Tree. I know that Halloween is next week and all, but after seeing all the Christmas love in the air, I am officially. Excited.

Martha Stewart Bridal Market Party 2010, Part 1


I cannot even begin to explain what a wonderful time I had at the Martha Stewart Bridal Market Party last night! From the second I walked in the door I knew that this was going to be an experience.  As soon as you stepped off the elevator, Elan Artists was playing and they completely set the mood for the entire evening. Then as I rounded the corner, I spotted Sylvia Weinstock. I have always read so much about her and recently caught her on an episode of Bravo's Just Desserts. I wanted to run right up to her (along with Martha herself, Darcy Miller, Lara Casey, Randy Fenoli, Mark Ingram.. you get the picture!)  and introduce myself. But I tried to contain myself. =)

Then you walked into a sparkly heaven. There was glitter everywhere! The chandelier was amazing. The dim room light reflected off it perfectly.

My first table stop was over to Tribeca Treats and Bella Cupcake Couture. Their desserts were to die for! I was able to meet Rachel Schifter, the author of Sweet Chic and owner of Tribeca Treats. She was so sweet! I can't wait to buy the book!

Then there were pipecleaner rings. I had seen these on the blogs of those who attended Martha Stewart's 15th Anniversary Party and was so excited that she was there again! How cleaver are these rings!?

Waiters walked around with scrumptious drinks and bite size h'ordeuvres that were to die for. The presentation was truly amazing!

Ah. Lavender Sachets by The Wedding Library. This table smelled phenomenal. There is something about lavender that just puts my heart at ease!

Smilebooth was there!! Lindsey (my date for the evening!) and I were so excited. It was also nice because Ashley, my June bride and her fiance Keith are itching to have them at their wedding! It was nice to have a test run. Also because I feel like I am the only person who has never been to an event where they have been! Got Cake?

This yummy dessert table by Sandals had all my favorites. And I am just a sucker for a white candy table.

Then there was the calligraphy of Neither Snow. Mara was so kind and her work is stunning. Lindsey and I had to make multiple trips to her table because she was always so crowded!

There were so many great things that I just could not capture with my camera quick enough. Part 2 will take you through the tour of Martha's office's that we were given right before we left. Stay tuned!
