My party last night was quite the success!  It was so fun to spend some time will all my wonderful neighbors. Although I will be sitting at the laundry mat all afternoon as one of my little ladies had one to many m&m’s Ugh!  I’m secretly looking forward to a little quiet time and a few design mags.  I’ll be catching up on some back issues of Traditional Home I snagged from my mom’s house. Here’s a little taste with a feature they did on Christmas in Boston

I’m hosting a few shindigs this holiday season and I was thinking I needed to bring the luminary back. When I was a kid we lived on this really long one way street and on Christmas eve everyone lined luminaries out in front of their house . It was so pretty and such a fond memory.  It’s quite simple too. Brown or white paper bags, fill the bottom with a bit of sand to weight it down and a candle. Ta da!

Have a great weekend. Mine will be filled with carving, costumes and candy!

Martha Stewart is always who I turn to for a little Holiday inspiration. Her pumpkin carving is unbeliveable. I have a new set of “carving” tools I’m going to try out this year. And some of her templates you can get here
