Happy Holidays!

Wow, has the year flown by. Thanksgiving is in just two days and my next favorite holiday is right around the corner. Yes, you guessed it, it's Christmas! It is so lovely to receive a card in the mail around the holiday season. My favorite website for Christmas, Hanukkah, New Years or just Happy Holiday cards is Very Inviting.
Not only do they have the most beautiful selection of personalized stationary, note cards, wine labels and luggage tags  they also offer a fabulous array of great gifts . My friends are always tickled pink when I give them personalized stationary from Very Inviting. The designs and colors are stunning and there is a uniqueness that you won't find anywhere else.

Haunted House!

Grinning, ghoulish jack-o-lanterns get
Halloween off to a screaming start. I always throw a little pumpkin carving
get together two nights before my party.
It is such great fun: good wine, yummy food, wonderful friends and lots of creativity!
Decorate your house in the spirit of the theme with creepy indoor decor.
Transform your living room into a witches coven by hanging wall posters and spooky silhouettes.

An elegant dinner table is shockingly sophisticated. Add glittered synthetic pumpkins and gothic candle sticks to evoke a bygone era.

Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe

This eerie dark candelabra and crow silhouettes are another way of setting the mood for a truly vintage Halloween. (left)
