Baker’s Treat

Jack and I recently visited Baker’s Treat in Flemington, a cafe that also donates to charity! His former manager at Starbucks actually did the artwork on the outside of the building, and the whole place is just super cute and fun.

I wore this engineered Lilly Pulitzer tube top with white jeans and my pink Jack Rogers. My favorite accessory though? This adorable cupcake!

Have you tried any new restaurants this summer?

March Day in the City

Jack and I went to lunch with my dad in the city, and also stopped in to celebrate his nephew’s first birthday! We passed by the Sprinkles Cupcake ATM so we just had to get one and take a picture.

I’m wearing UGG earmuffs, Eddie Bauer coat, Kate Spade purse, and LOFT gloves. My scarf is from Scotland!

Valentine’s Day: Ready to Fla-mingle

Valentine’s Day is less than a month away, so I put together a sweet treat party inspiration featuring table wear from Target.

The Pink Metal Tray, Floral Plates, Striped Napkins, and Glitter Champagne Flutes are all fromΒ Target! Everything was so colorful and fun, but also not dripping in hearts. They also have other patterns to choose from and many more decoration options! I was unable to find these pieces at target.com, but they should be with the other party supplies in your local store!

I had previously bought the paper straws and the flamingo stirrers. Drink accessories are always a great thing to have on hand. The tassel garland is also from Target’s regular party line, and I had it hanging in my dorm room. The hearts are foam stickers, and I also tried my hand at some floral arranging!

I hope this inspires your next V-day event! Whether it’s a girls night in or a flirty date, it’s sure to be sweet!

New Year’s Glamour

The boyfriend and I decided to forgo the partying this New Year’s and have a fancy dinner at home! I’ve been setting up all day, so I can start cooking while he’s on his way from work.

I got a whole bunch of fancy table decorations at Target and Party City, and a lot of it on clearance.

The plates, placemats, and metallic shred are from Party City. I didn’t want to get too cheesy with the New Year’s decor so I opted for a kind of Kate Spade inspired color palette instead. The glassware, sunglasses, and the Nate Berkus tray are from Target, which I got on clearance.

These cupcakes from Wegmans added the perfect touch of sweetness to the table. And a little (or a lot) of champagne never hurt anybody!

I turned the napkins into bows by pinching them in the middle and tying them with a bit of ribbon. To make it a little more glamorous, I made napkin rings of card stock that I had, which matched my color scheme perfectly. I wrote out 2015 in an Art Deco style and added some glitter glue for sparkle.

Now it’s time to get ready and get cooking before Jack gets here!

 

More Christmas Cheer

Last week was full of even more Holiday fun!

On Wednesday I went into the city to meet my dad and sister for lunch in Bryant Park. We ate at the Bryant Park Grill, which is always one of my favorites.

During the holidays a Winter Village gets set up in the park with lots of shops, a skating rink, and a big tree. Even though I didn’t have time to look around this time, I went last year and there are so many cute things to look at!

Here is my sister and I in front of the tree!

On my walk back to the train, I passed Baked By Melissa and had to pop in for some cupcakes! I got a box of six:

Triple Chocolate Fudge, Chocolate Pretzel,Β Hot Cocoa (mini of the month), Cookie Dough, Tie Dye

These are awesome cupcakes and if you haven’t tried them you haven’t lived.

On Friday, I met my Little and my Little Little at Peddler’s Village!

Peddler’s Village has a ton of cute stores and bakeries and the whole area is decorated for Christmas!

They even have the gingerbread house contest displayed in the gazebo

I would definitely suggest either Peddler’s Village or New Hope if you want a quick holiday getaway!
