There is a time and a place for brown paper packages tied up with strings, but this year we wanted pink, patterned, and pretty! We’ve done a thorough investigation of wrapping papers this Christmas season and collected some of our favorites. From geometric patterns to Swedish Dala horses to fun florals, these papers are sure to delight their recipients. They’ll look fabulous under your tree too! Read on →
During the holiday season, you can always expect to bake at least two times more than you do normally, am I right? Between Christmas get-togethers, cookie exchanges, work parties, etc., chances are you’ll have lots of opportunities to play in the kitchen. What better way to impress people than with a beautiful forest topped cake! This Crepe Paper Christmas Tree Cake Topper is an easy craft to take a holiday cake over the top! You know those adorable, but rather expensive bottle brush trees? Consider this an easy and cheaper substitute!

I feel like the luckiest lady in all the land! A couple of weeks ago, the ladies here at the office threw me a baby shower with all the bells and whistles. It was so sweet. No literally, it was VERY sweet. We had delicious sweet waffles along with all the treats a pregnant girl could want. There wasn’t one savory dish on the menu. Ha! It was right up my alley. It was so wonderful to celebrate our baby boy amongst the company of those I get to work with who I love so much. It’s always so overwhelming to have people spend time and efforts on you. Like, how do you thank them? In a blog post, of course! 😉 Thank you so much to the ladies I love for all the love that went into this shower. This baby (and mama!) feel so loved!
Check out all the details of the baby shower (along with my huge bump!)!
What are some of your Thanksgiving traditions? Maybe you go on a Turkey Trot the morning of Halloween. Perhaps you see a movie in the evening? I know a lot of people who watch way too much football 😉 One particular tradition beloved at the Lars Studio is watching the Macy’s Day Parade on the morning of Thanksgiving. The floats, the music, the dancing, it’s all so magical! As the cooking and baking preparations are well underway, we watch the parade march past Central Park and there is nothing better! Nostalgia at its finest, that’s what the holidays are all about, right? So we bottled up our love for that tradition and created this Macy’s Day Parade Tablescape for our monthly tablescape series complete with taxi car place cards! Say hello to your new Thanksgiving tradition.
Edited: The Today Show loved it so much they featured it on their Thanksgiving edition!
See how to create the full tablescape after the jump!
Thanksgiving is in 3 weeks! If you’re on the ball, that means you’re probably already working on a menu and planning for the great feast. For the rest of us, we’re just hoping that we get invited to that house! Thanksgiving is traditionally spent with family and loved ones. People travel far and wide to join together to eat, drink, and be merry. Though perhaps you can’t get work off or don’t have the time or money to travel. Enter: Friendsgiving! Friendsgiving is a version of Thanksgiving but rather than family members, it’s your friends that compile the guest list. I love Friendsgiving because it’s the perfect excuse to reconnect with friends and enjoy a delicious dinner party. Where’s the bad?
