TEA & INSPIRATION

I'm sippin' a little Cranberry Autumn tea, available at HarneyTeas, while enjoying a tres healthy snack--a Pumpkin Spice Flax bar from Kashi. Just relaxing with a stack of awesome magazines...Southern Lady, Teatime, Paula Deen, Simply Southern, Celebrating Fall, Celebrating Halloween ....and planning some holiday events.

Autumn is a wonderful time of the year to reconnect with family and friends and to begin planning all of your holiday events and decorations. Small events are my specialty. I love to entertain and create themed events--from potluck to formal dinners. Entertaining does not mean that you have to host a lavish formal dinner party. I'm sure that you have thought about entertaining friends, only to stress out that your home isn't decorated right, not clean enough, or you are not a Martha Stewart-type person. Well, you probably have more entertaining experience than you think--from birthday parties to casual cookouts--it's all about the social skills.

Please stop in on Thursday when I will be blogging about ways to begin planning YOUR event!

I can't wait to see what you have planned for us on Thursday! With your inspiration, I was thrilled to have some friends over a couple weeks ago and I dressed up my table for the first time ever! In black and white farm toile with hot pink and lime green accents and flowers. It was gorgeous and I was so proud of myself. You inspired me! Thanks!

The picture with the magazines reminds me *so* much of fall and the holidays Miss Janice, admitting how many old recipe magazines I have would terrify everyone!

Can't wait for Thursday!

Ooooooh, I'll be here! I love to plan and set up, but the actual hostessing part is not me. I'd rather stay in the background. So I need to hear about the social part the most!

smooches,
