There are 2 more chances to become a finalist in the Sterling Ultimate Host Challenge! That’s 2 more chances to become one step closer to a HUGE cash prize + trip to Napa’s Sterling Vineyards for 4! Finalists will join me (and the other judges + Sterling crew + Padma Lakshmi) in NYC THIS DECEMBER for the final challenge!
Meredith Santucci, co-owner of MJ Paperie, sent in the most adorable pumpkin-themed 1st birthday! I love pulling in seasonal themes for birthdays. It makes the event festive and fun for everyone. Guests at little Avery’s 1st birthday enjoyed pumpkin painting and sweet fall treats. I especially love the invitations featuring a photo envelope liner (see above) – clever + cute!
Caramel apples are one of my favorite treats for fall parties, Halloween gatherings, + more! The only problem is that gnawing down on a huge sticky apple on a stick doesn’t make for a very flattering look for anyone. So when I spotted these cute caramel apple bites on Burwell General Store, I knew they would be the perfect solution for getting your caramel apple fix without the mess!
