Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween Everyone! My favorite season is upon us......Autumn! I must tell you i was not always a fan of this season....I found it depressing and sad. But I guess you could say I have grown into it and now I can not imagine anything better than spending the day outside enjoying the sun and marveling at the fall colors. It just so happens, that my favorite holiday takes place in autumn.....HALLOWEEN! Halloween used to be a foreign concept to germans...they had no idea why we americans would take a pumpkin and carve it and stick a candle in it instead of chopping the thing up to make all sorts of treats! Back in 1991 when we hosted our first party, I had to have the costums and decorations flown in from Chicago, now lots of years later I am able to get everything I need right here in Berlin.(maybe we should have a party? Tonight is a school night so no chance of any sort of party, but my family and I are going to have a the pumpkins glowing, enjoy hot dogs and the grill and maybe even some smores at the fire pit. Life is good and I am going to do my best to enjoy it!

Happy Halloween 2013!

I love it when i get a deal at the store and I love it even more when I get inspired by that deal!  You see, one of the local grocery stores had hokaido pumpkins on sale....  .99cents per pumpkin! Of course I do not take just one! My original plan was just to make gallons of soup to freeze for the upcoming months of winter. BUT, when I got the pumpkins home...the inspiration kicked in and the following tablescape came together!  

the orange frames are still idea is to put the menue card in the frame.

My favorite month of the year!

Hey is October already! Happy Halloweening to all of you. I am a bit out of the weather today with a massive headache, but just wanted to take 5 minutes to pop in and say hello. October is a busy month....dinner parties, family coming in(my onkel is coming to visit he has not been in Berlin since the wall came down, I am so psyched to show him the city.), and of course it is Halloween. I can imagine the brooms will be flying through the air soon. Wonder if the wicked witch of the east will finally make the curve around the trees this year.....will post any broom citings, should I be able to get a picture!
