Hanging Christmas Globes

It's pretty much time to pull out those Christmas decorations and get your digs ready for the season! We have a fun little project for you to put together yourself-it's so easy and looks great!

If you don't want to purchase holly branches you can just snip off a little sprig from your Christmas tree or go by Christmas tree lots and see if you can pick up the scraps that fall of or get trimmed.  Or of course you can put anything you like for your Holiday decor such as glitter in festive colors or little pinecones-get creative!

Welcome Back!

We hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving Day, enjoyed plenty of your favorite festive foods and spent a wonderful weekend with friends and family!

It's always difficult to get back in the swing of things after a little taste of vacation, but we'll be sure to be posting some beautiful and fabulous ideas and inspirations for the upcoming Holiday season so be sure to check back and we'll get you through until then :)

Pumpkin Martini

Thanksgiving is this week...can you believe it?! It's just crazy how fast time is going by.  Before you know it, it's going to be Christmas and then the year will be over. We can't think about that now, it's too much :) So, instead, here is a fun pumpkin drink recipe-enjoy!

Our Event!

Check out these pictures from our event this past week!

We set this space up for 1,000+ CEO's from around the world at a hotel in Huntington Beach. We had a blast working with everyone! A special shout out to our staff and crew for all your hard work-thank you so much everyone!

Iain Crawford is an amazing and inspiring photographer. Just take a look at those colors!

Apple-Pie Spiced Cider

Save Those Pumpkins!

No need to throw away your Halloween pumpkins if they still have life in them! We took a que from our previous Thanksgiving post on Wednesday and here's some ideas of what you can do with them...

Chic Thanksgiving Table-scape

We cannot believe how this year is flying by! Thanksgiving is just around the corner and it's time to start getting ideas together for the look and feel of your family dinner. We found a picture that we used as inspiration and did our own spin based on the concept.

To get this look just pick up the gold flatware, amber glassware, grey dinnerware and graphic placemats.  Or find your own inspiration picture and go from there! Remember, an inspiration picture is just that, inspiration! Feel free to add your own flare to it or stray from the specifics of your source image. In fact, don't copy it at all! It's much more fun and more unique to use it as a starting point only and to see where you end up!

Hot Buttered Rum

Another beautiful Monday which means another drink idea! Today we have Hot Buttered Rum, enjoy!

Elite Women of Orange County Fall Soiree

We would like to think all of you lovely ladies for coming out to the Fall Soiree!  It was such a pleasure to get to know all of you.  Our special thanks to Prego Ristoranti for allowing us to use their lovely patio space for our get-together and providing the delicious hor d'oeuvres! Here are a few pictures of the festivities...

Our next gathering will be the Winter Soiree, stay tuned for the details as the time draws near. Thank you again to all you who sponsored this event with your lovely gifts for the giveaway drawing and to all you ladies for enjoying the evening with us!

Vivienne Westwood

Vivienne Westwood's fashion show at Shanghai Fashion Week had some amazing pieces! It seems rather appropriate for October and Halloween as well.  Though we know that the painted faces are a connection to Asian tradition and not our ghoulish holiday, it's a fun idea to draw on for Halloween costumes.  Grab a glamourous gown - Vivienne Westwood might be a little too special for a Halloween costume, but it's your call of course :) - paint your face and add a little bit of tool or some sparkling gloves.  
Vivienne Westwood is just fabulous isn't she?! Check out more pictures from the show here and read a great article about it here. Enjoy!
