An Awesome Event

It's almost time for Halloween, woo hoo! Last night I went to a very fun event, Eat, Drink, and Be Scary, which was hosted by a beautiful group of Dallas event planners and such, including my new friend Paige of Paige Chenault Events. Paige has an amazing eye for detail and put together an incredible wedding to remember for my friend Sara, as well as numerous weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, and loads of other fabu parties here in town. Paige has a lot of fun photos and party ideas on her blog right here.

Throwing something fab? Call Paige!

Party On!

Glitter + Martha + Fall = AWESOME!

Martha Stewart's latest issue had an awesome feature on glitter painting. I love this idea (and all things glittery) and Martha has made it (at least appear) pretty darn easy! This is surely going to be a gift I make for the holidays.

In the meantime, before I get to dumping glitter all over a printout of your dog's face, I'm ready to pour some colorful shards o'glass all over my pumpkins. (Is is me, or does that sound kinda seksi?)

Now it's time to make glittered pumpkin decorations for the holidays.

Check out the gloriousness of this final product? NOTE: Nothing I have ever made looks even 30% as adorable, clean, and/or beautiful as Martha. Here's hoping to get to 29% on these.

I can't wait to show you how pretty I glitter up a big ole' Bert...

Fred Has Awesome Flare

It's no secret to you AAAD readers that I find many joyous awesomes from Fred Flare. Well, here are a few new great things that I think you will enjoy. Oh, what was that, I hear? 30% Holiday Preview through 11/16? I'm sorry, what? Just enter the code "PREVIEW?" Um, okay!

This cupcake beanie is the cutest thing ever. Except an actual cupcake. To eat. And not form-fit my enormous size fits all, huh?

I'm also finding this rad sweatshirt, well, rad.

What do y'all think? I am all about wearing something that makes people smile...which shall be a nice segue into my Halloween costume post...

Have A Great Day!

Awesome Improv at The Grocery Store

Watch this amazing Glee-like song and dance performed in a Queens grocery store that totally caught shoppers by happy surprise.

This is done by a group I just heard about, Improv Everywhere. From their website, Improv Everywhere causes scenes of chaos and joy in public places. Created in August of 2001 by Charlie Todd, Improv Everywhere has executed over 85 missions involving thousands of undercover agents. The group is based in New York City.

Check out the behind-the-scenes and more about this crazy group of awesomeness right here.

Also, IE created Food Court Musical awhile back.

Here's more on that.

Gotta love this spirit!

It's Pumpkin Season, B^@&#ES!

It's Pumpkin Time. Noted so beautifully, by the talented Colin Nissan, here. (<---READ THAT)

(Thanks AAAD reader Brad for the link, who so wonderfully called me "seasonally creative." Sweeter words have never been spoken.)

Anyhoo, today I went to a pumpkin-carving party at reader Alice's house. On the way over, I thought maybe we could do something different from the traditional carving and eye-gouging. I was pleased to find these fun downloadable mask templates from Good Housekeeping.

All you need to buy is some black felt, black ribbon, and those plastic masks that were 3 for $1.99 at the craft store. Then it's time to go to town. Alice and I decided that our mask template was so 2008 and late, and by simply placing our masks beloooow eye level, BAM! 2009 Pumpkins with Mustaches!
Go nuts with these. And send me some photos of your pumpkins. Ooooh that's seksi talk. I'm going to use that as my Fall '09 comeon.
