It’s true, no exaggeration. I’m so old-fashioned that way. I still send handwritten cards by snail-mail. And, have you noticed we are within the most popular birthday weeks of the year? It feels like everyone I know is a September or October birthday, and I’m one of them too. Yea for October birthdays!
Actually, as a lesser-known fact – September 16th is the most popular birthday. (That’s your random piece of trivia for the next dinner party.)
Paris is always a good idea, especially at the Four Seasons, George V. We celebrated our wedding anniversary in Paris and were fortunate enough to find this amazing drink – George Fizz.
Here’s the recipe to enjoy with friends.

This dangerously, delicious bread will have them asking for the recipe every single time. Thanks to a sweet friend Diana who gave me this recipe at my wedding shower, I’ve probably made this bread no less than 200 times. It’s a no fail, can’t go wrong kind of recipe with 7 ingredients. So simple!
Here’s the recipe.
It’s simple…I love FALL! But if you are like me you don’t have much time to give to decorating. So, I gave myself 60 minutes to pull together 5 fast and fabulous ideas. What ideas do you have this fall for speed decorating?
The 5 Ideas:
A couple of years ago I took one of the most special trips of my life. I had the chance to see the majestic fall foliage in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine with my mom and dad. Just us.
This trip is an absolute must do. I coveted the time with my parents as we relaxed and breathed in the beauty of fall.
We call our girls our little ladies and find ourselves often asking them to ‘sit like a lady’, ‘act like a lady’. And that’s where the inspiration for our ladybug party originated.
I think a warm greeting is so important to any party experience. That’s why any chance I get I extend the decorations to the front yard. Here’s my welcome to our guests.
I received some great advice to arrange stations for the girls and their friends to move about during the party. Brilliant! We had a small borrowed bounce house, coloring and craft table, tape the dot on the ladybug game, tables for eating, and a ladybug tent in the playroom.
