Fall Entertaining Inspiration: Let’s go pinning…

Oh my goodness it was a beautiful fall – like weekend here! I was sharing lots of fun fall ideas over on instagram. It was fun to pull out some fall things and spruce up the house a bit. So many great ideas out in blogland. …and on pinterest! There isn’t a doubt…Pinterest is here to stay. It is this generations form of inspiration and a fabulous way to share creative ideas. I find that when Fall comes around I tend to be on there more…pinning fall projects, recipes and inspirations for the coming holidays. It helps to stir up my creative juices ….and it is a perfect way to collect all your inspirations….




My friends at Aladdin (you know who Aladdin is…the maker of those super fun mason jar glasses and pitchers—you find them at Target…along with other retailers) have invited me to pin with them for a couple weeks. We decided it would be a great time to find inspirational ideas for your fall entertaining. I focused my pins on some yummy cocktails and mocktails for your Fall parties. I think it is always fun to serve up an interesting and unique drink. These below will not disappoint your guest….


I would love for you to come and follow and pin some fall favorites to your boards too!

Here are just a few fall entertaining pins to get you started… (see links below pics for the pin)

Barn door becomes coffee table…

Hi all! Did you hear that this winter is going to be colder than last….that is what the experts are saying. They must be wrong…right (she says while hands shake…). Oh the humanity!!! So try to soak in … [Read More...]


crossing paths….

It is funny how paths cross. I met my husband while passing in the parking lot outside our dorms at UD. He looked up and said “Hi darlin..”  Sidenote: "darlin" will always work....especially in a true southern accent. Always... in case there are any college age males in the audience...cue crickets:)  Another sidenote: strange to think if we were in college today....we might have been looking down at a smartphone instead of looking up at passersby. Just a random thought...moving on:) Our paths … [Read More...]


All Day Marinara Sauce

  Making your own big batch of marinara sauce makes you feel like a rockstar. It is very easy….you can spice it up or down…salt more or less…and when you family comes home at night they will smell the goodness and realize that you are indeed the rockstar mom that you have been telling them you are all these years. Win win right?! So, the next fallish Sunday….make up some sauce and enjoy. This recipe will yield enough to freeze up for another use…perfect…. I suppose you could even … [Read More...]


Barn door becomes coffee table…

Hi all! Did you hear that this winter is going to be colder than last….that is what the experts are saying. They must be wrong…right (she says while hands shake…). Oh the humanity!!! So try to soak in these last few weeks of hotness mmkay?!? One of my all time favorite projects that we have completed was our Barn Door Desk. It was a perfect statement piece for my hubs office. It wasn’t very hard to put together and it was a great size for that space. We didn’t really have an office space for … [Read More...]


Repurposed Ladder into Office Organizer

You know that I would never pass up an old, beat up, done-it’s-time wooden ladder. I have had this one for several years. It was the best $25 I have ever spent…..I adore it.  It was leaning against the wall in my new office area since we moved in….as if it was just waiting for a new purpose….”please, use me again!” Well little ladder…your wish has been granted….and I love you even more now….   Obviously you will need a fabulous old wood ladder. You may be lucky enough to score one … [Read More...]


Tomato Cobbler

Did you have a good weekend?Pretty low key here..we made it to the lake to clean up a few things and grab some furniture…Happy end to summer I guess. It seemed that this one kind of passes us by…although I am ready for fall. I kind of like the hibernation that fall brings. I am really an introvert about 8 months of the year….and I love the quiet that fall brings:) But, before we go all pumpkin…let’s use up those tomatoes from the garden ok…. I know….cobbler is usually sweet…but this easy … [Read More...]


what would you say?…

Every time…hopefully without fail…---before my kids walk out the door to go off and be kids…they leave with the words “make smart choices” echoing in their head….so much so that when I left a few weeks ago to go out with friends my daughter said to me, “make smart choices mom…” hilarious…note taken… Being a teen is hard. There are days when I really miss that little person with the sticky jelly fingers telling me a funny tale from preschool. There life can be much more complicated … [Read More...]


Quick Mocha Frappe

It’s kind of hot. I suppose it should be…it is August. Sometimes it’s too hot for coffee….dare I say. There are about 2 weeks in the late summer when I switch to iced coffee. I still need that jolt to wake me up…but I just cannot drink a hot drink. This super quick mocha frappe is just the ticket for these hot hot days of summer. My friends at Nespresso sent me a super sexy machine called the VertuoLine to try out…so I created this recipe for them:) Vavavoom…am I right? Even the pods are fun….;) … [Read More...]


cool finds…

Hi all….we’ve been porch sittin a bunch lately. It is funny…because we thought that we would be using our screened in porch the most…but we have been really loving the front porch. We found a fabulous end-of-season couch at a local shop called Summer Classics. The blue adirondack chairs are from overstock.com….they all look like they were made to be together. Those pieces along with an outdoor rug (that was from Bill’s old office)… really rounds out the front porch nicely. I have fallen asleep … [Read More...]
