DIY: Studded Pumpkin

I love getting creative for the holiday's especially with my tablescapes! This was such a fun project to do and literally took about 20 minutes once I had all my supplies ready to go. 

 What You Need
1 Small Pumpkin (scraped and clean)
100 gold studs (quantity will depend on size of pumpkin)
1 block floral foam, soaked in water
1 gallon size ziplock back (cut seal off)
Flowers of your choice
3 tangerines
3 wooden skewers
Scissors & Garden Clippers

The first thing you will want to do is cut and scrape your pumpkin clean! Make sure you cut the opening big enough to fit the floral foam. Now you can start making your stripes with the studs. My pumpkin had ridges in it so I followed the lines all the way down. 

Once you have that done it's time to get to work! 
Take your gallon ziplock bag, cut the seal off of the top and the line the inside of the pumpkin with the bag. Once the foam has been completely soaked in water place it vertically into the bag and press down. You will end up with a good amount of foam sticking out of the pumpkin. Take a knife and cut the excess off the top. 

Place the filler/greenery along the bottom and then start adding in your flowers. The last step will be to add your tangerines to fill in any holes you might have!

Scarf Weather

I visited Nashville for the first time over the weekend, and it was definitely scarf weather!

For those of you who haven't been to Nashville, it is seriously the best town! I fell in love
with it, including the outskirts of town. The energy, vibe and people are like no other and not to mention there is music on every corner downtown. Right in the city in an area called The Gulch, we 
had the absolute pleasure of visiting and eating at some of the M Street Restaurant Group's 
restaurants. All 6 restaurants are impeccably decorated down to every last detail and the food is
incredible to boot. The queso at Saint Anejo is ridiculous and I want to move into the cozy rooms at Kayne Prime. Highly recommend all of them!

My other favorite store was a fun quirky boutique called Two Old Hippies. They have everything from hats, shoes and clothes (for both men and women), to kids tee's, gifts items and home decor! 

I can't wait to go back and hit up all the spots I missed!

Hope you had the best weekend.

Raspberry Sorbet Fizz

Not sure if you are dialed in on the craze that is LaCroix, but if you are like me
then you are already OBSESSED. If you haven't tried it yet you are missing out on life and
need to head to the closest store immediately! 

Since I don't drink soda but constantly find myself craving carbonation, sparkling water
has become my "go-to". So…as we approach the holiday season I have teamed up with my friends over at LaCroix to make a delicious drink for all of your holiday party needs. Because LaCroix water  has no sugar, adding the sorbet turns this mocktail into a very special treat! 
Check out the video below to see how it's done! 

What You Need

Cran-Raspberry LaCroix Water
Mint Leaves
Ice Cube mold - i used this one!
Raspberry Sorbet
Fresh Cranberries

Before you start concocting your mocktail, you'll need to assemble your ice cube!
I used this mold to add a unique touch to the drink. Place mint leaves and a couple cranberries into
your mold and add water. Freeze for required time. 

Place ice cube in glass and then add a scoop of raspberry sorbet on top. *tip: The ice cube helps keep the sorbet cold and as a result melts slower! Add the LaCroix sparkling cran-raspberry on top. Garnish with mint leaf and fresh raspberries. Add straw and enjoy! 

Now I get to share my obsession with you! I'm giving away a 4-month supply of LaCroix to one very lucky reader. I know, I know. You can hardly contain your excitement!
