An Autumn Dinner in the Garden

Finding the time for ourselves during our busy season is a little complicated. From weekends filled with weddings and deliveries, to week days filled with office work and preparation for the next busy weekend, we have a hard time catching our breath. Luckily, we decided before the busy season that we would plan a few nights over the next few months to have friends over. I’m sure you see all the beautiful weddings and events we work or are apart of and think how great it must be. But quite frankly, we rarely enjoy those beautiful events. Which is why we plan things, like an autumn dinner in the garden with close friends, to make it all that much more special for the people we love, as well as ourselves.  (more…)

A Haunted Halloween Party Round 4

This past weekend, we hosted our 4th annual Haunted Halloween bash at the ranch. We always love planning and putting this party on. Halloween is one of our all time favorite holidays. Being able to dress up and get creative with a costume is so much fun. With our past events, we decided on a theme for our decor. Our past events include decor themed around Stranger Things & It, but this year we went with something a little more broad; freak show!  (more…)

How We Decorate Our Home for Halloween

Halloween is definitely one of our favorite holidays to celebrate. It’s the first holiday in Arizona where the weather starts to actually cool down. It’s what we like to call the door to the holidays. Once Halloween rolls around, you’re set for a few months of holiday fun. With events, how often do they stay set up for you to enjoy multiple days? Not very. Being able to decorate our home for the seasons that we really love gives us an opportunity for a fun and creative outlet that we can enjoy for more than 24 hours. (more…)

Throw An Epic Pumpkin Carving Party

Since October has rolled around and finally started to feel like fall, we’ve been really enjoying all the festive things that come with October; Halloween, spooky decor and lots and lots of pumpkins. Literally! Everywhere you go, you can buy a pumpkin. Whether it is a fake pumpkin or a real pumpkin, pumpkins are the official mascot of Halloween, right? That and Bette Midler in Hocus Pocus. With Halloween in just a few short weeks, I recently got together with a few close girlfriends and hosted our own pumpkin carving party to really get in the festive mood. This was the first pumpkin carving party that we’ve hosted, and throughout the process, I’ve picked up a few tips and tricks so you throw an epic pumpkin carving party yourself. (more…)

A Modern Oktoberfest Dinner Party

We’ve been spending quite a lot of time outside in the evenings. Sure, it is still pretty warm here in Arizona, but it is significantly cooler now that the sun is setting earlier. With being outside, I can’t help but start planning and hosting some events of our own at the ranch. Every year, we kind of go all out during the holidays. Starting in September and headed through New Years. To kick off the holiday season, we’re sharing about our take on September’s number one holiday inspired event; a modern Oktoberfest Dinner Party.
