Throwback Thursday: The Halloween Rap-O-Lantern

By WendyB Because this Throwback Thursday is also the day before Halloween, allow me to present — again — one of my all-time favorite pumpkin carvings: 2011’s Rick Ross Rap-O-Lantern.

Fall Entertaining

By Jane Pope Cooper

1x1.trans Fall Entertaining


I am super excited about fall weather and cool temps. We have an amazing back patio and we love to hang, eat, cook, drink out there as much as possible. We have been out of town the past two weekends, and I am psyched to spend the weekend at home with the fam this weekend. Halloween with the kiddos (we have an Elsa from Frozen and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.) will obviously be our Friday night plan. I am hoping to be beside the fire pit with delicious cocktail in hand by dusk on Saturday. I love the sound of this grape, rosemary gin drink. I have really been liking gin lately. How cute is this sweater/poncho from Anthropolgie?!? It will make the perfect topper for a cool evening. I am super excited to try out this Ramen. I don’t eat very much meat, but this crockpot crispy caramelized pork with roasted squash looks ridonk! I love all blue and white china. I fell in love with these plates at FURBISH Studio when I was there in September. Paired with these cute cocktail napkins from Open Door Shop, they will make for the perfect outdoor table setting. We have a long wooden table on our back patio. I love this simple rustic flowers, table etc! Hello Fall!

Do you have any plans for the weekend?
