I was planning on having a cocktail party for my girlfriends last weekend but the plans fell through. I was really looking forward to it and had so many fun ideas. So instead, I thought I'd share my ideas with you.
I bought a cabinet at Home Goods last year and wanted to use it as a bar and house some of my table linens. Right after purchasing it, I removed one of the shelves on the inside so that some taller bottles could fit. I also painted the inside doors with chalkboard paint. My recent project was to line the back walls with paper to give it a pop of color. I finally got around to doing that this morning.
Here's the before:
And here are the afters:
I decided to use scrapbook paper instead of wallpaper due to price. I bought 7 pieces of scrapbook paper for a grand total of $2.80!
I picked a pattern that wasn't so small and repeating that it would be noticeable if I didn't match the pieces together perfectly.
And here is the cabinet stocked with all the essentials:
Today was the perfect fall day. A little chill in the air, a great football game by the Bears and then a trip to Tom's Farm. It wouldn't be fall without Tom's Farm. I grew up down the street from here and over the years it has grown in popularity and in size. But the quality has never changed. Tom's has THE most delicious pies and apple cider donuts. I actually got 20 pies from here for the dessert for my wedding last year. My husband and I aren't big cake eaters but we love pie.
Check out this old fashioned scale to weigh your pumpkins on.
We went through the corn maze and I decided to get some creative shots with my camera.
My favorite part of the farm...the animals! This cow looks just like the ones from the Happy California Cows commercial. Vote for me!
Check out the sunshine rays. Beautiful!
Such beautiful fall colors.
I love the sky in this picture.
Me and my hubby :)
