Thanksgiving Dessert & To Go Station

For my Thanksgiving table, I did not have enough room for desserts on the table so I made a dessert and to go station on a sideboard nearby. We had pumpkin cheesecake and Brightside Bakery treats. 

Since Thanksgiving is notorious for leftovers, I included the cutest "thankful for leftovers" bags and pie boxes for leftovers. I made the pie leftover boxes into a party favor by tying a mini Jackson Morgan bottle to the top. I scored these pie boxes in the Target dollar bin, but linked a similar option below.

Thanksgiving Table

Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away, I feel like every year it sneaks up on me. This year I decided to use a non traditional color scheme and I could not be more thrilled by the way it turned out. The combination of blush, gold, and white is beautiful and matched our Jackson Morgan brown sugar bottles perfectly. These stunning blush coupe glasses from Anthropologie inspired the color scheme. 

Tips for Designing your Thanksgiving Table

  • Pick one statement color and then use neutrals for everything else. 
  • Add personal touches such as monogramed linens. I found these on Etsy and they come in several different colors. 
  • Be careful of the height of your floral arrangements and candles to make sure guests can see over it. 
  • When designing your table, think about the serving dishes you plan to use and make sure you have enough room on your table. This pink Le Creuset dutch oven is one of my favorites and made the stuffing a little more exciting on the table.  
  • Make your table interactive, I found these fun party crackers that have conversation starters inside once opened. 
  • Make a dessert and cocktail station separate from your table to allow more room for the main course. 
  • Don't be afraid to borrow items from friends or family, my mom has the most amazing collection of white serving pieces that I always borrow for big events.

One Bowl Two Ways

I fell in love with this Coton Colors black and white striped bowl a few months back. It seemed like a very versatile piece for hosting. For Halloween, I used it as a candy bowl and an ice bucket. I have more plans to use it as a flower pot, popcorn bowl, and salad bowl,. 

I cannot wait to use this bowl for Christmas and New Years! Have you purchased anything from Coton Colors? If you are local to Fayetteville, TN, our friends at Ivy Wreath have the full collection. 

Cheers! 

Halloween Cocktail with Festive Rim

This Halloween cocktail looks difficult to make, but is very easy. The frosting rim makes it festive. You could use different colored sprinkles for other holidays or parties. Your guests will enjoy sipping on this orange cream treat all evening. 

Ingredients:

2 Parts Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in Whipped Orange Cream

1 Part Vodka

Halloween Sprinkles 

Vanilla Frosting

Directions:

For the cocktail use a cocktail shaker, mix Jackson Morgan Southern Cream and vodka. Shake well, then pour over fresh ice. For the frosting rim, carefully frost the outside of the rim of the glass. Use a wet paper towel to correct any mistakes. Place the sprinkles in a bowl and dip the frosted glass into the sprinkles. Then press the festive sprinkles into the frosting. 

The "witches brew cups are from Swoozies and the Halloween sprinkles are from Homegoods. The skull decanter is from Pottery Barn. For more details on our Halloween bar cart, check out the original post here. 

Cheers!

Spiked Caramel Pumpkin Bread

Pumpkin Bread

Pumpkin bread is a staple this time of year. It reminds me of my childhood, when my mom would make it every year. William-Sonoma released a caramel pumpkin bread mix that I just had to make.

To make the pumpkin bread, follow the directions on the back of the package. For the milk ingredient, I used half Jackson Morgan salted caramel and half milk. After the bread cooled, I added pumpkin butter on each slice. This bread tasted and smelled amazing! 

I served my pumpkin bread on this fun Nora Fleming bread plate with the pumpkin attachment. 

Cheers!

Halloween Gift Basket

Growing up our neighbors would "ghost" each other in the weeks leading up to Halloween. A neighbor would put together a treat basket with fun goodies. I loved this idea, but living in a neighborhood with mostly young adults, I wanted to include adult treats. 

In my gift basket, I picked several of my fall favorites. First and foremost a bottle of Jackson Morgan in whipped orange. Fun ghost cocktail napkins from Swoozies, Halloween candy, and orange dishtowels. My absolute favorite local candle company, Southern Firefly, has the most amazing pumpkin candle that I had to include. 

Even if "ghosting" is not a thing in your neighborhood, this would be a fun hostess gift or treat for a coworker or friend. 

Do you do something similar in your neighborhood for Halloween? 

Cheers! 

DIY Spooky Bottles

I love a good DIY, especially when it takes less than five minutes. When gifting a bottle of liquor during the Halloween season, why not dress it up? Wouldn't this be a fun gift to receive as a hostess gift. It also looks spooky on a bar cart.

As you may have noticed from my Halloween bar cart post, I got creative when with our Jackson Morgan bottles. I found these fun 3D bat stickers in the Target dollar bin. I put them on our whipped orange bottle for a fun DIY. 

I also found these adorable witch hats. The first is from our friends at Ivy Wreath and the other is from Swoozies. I placed the hats on the top of the bottles, so when you receive it as gift you get a costume and a bottle of Jackson Morgan. 

So easy and fun! 

Cheers!

What's not to love about this time of year? Candy, cocktails, and festive costumes galore! For Halloween, I made my bar cart spooky. I scored this black rattan bar cart from World Market in the clearance section. 

Jackson Morgan's whipped orange cream is the perfect drink for Halloween. I made the bottles spooky with 3D bat stickers. I used a plain chocolate cake and added this "Boo" cake topper from Swoozies. I love the way it turned out and it was easy! I found these spooky eyeball gum balls from Home Goods which worked perfect in my apothecary jar. This skull decanter was a great addition and also very practical. What is a Halloween party without candy? I stored candy in this Coton Color's bowl with the pumpkin attachment.
