Happy Thanksgiving!

Don't forget to decorate for the arrival of your guests outside too! 

Not only is the dining table one of the most important aspects for decorating on this holiday, but also the exterior of your home is your first impression for a warm autumn welcome.  Above is an example of a wonderful mix of ivy planted with boxwood and branches of magnolia inserted and topped off with pumpkins and berries!  I am using this for inspiration to create a wonderful arrangement on the mantle with branches of magnolia filled with berries.

Our future Queen of Fashion...thanks to Kate!

Congrats to Kate on her recent engagement to Price William, but even more congrats to Issa!  I am dying to get my hands on a dress by the new designer she so famously loves.  Issa is based in London and has many famous clients around the world, such as Madonna, Kate Moss, and Naomi Campbell.  A few of her designs available below...

Almost Laduree...

In one of my hurried scuttles out of the side entrance of the D&D building, I stopped in my tracts to see this fabulous new little pastry shop.  Of course I did not need the hand sized pistachio macaroon, but it looked sooo appealing! 
So, I stopped in to scope out the scene and take a few photos to share.  After a long day shopping at the design center, now you can reward yourself at Financier!

Bon Appetit!
