Trader Joe’s Cheese Plate

Trader Joe’s Cheese Plate

I recently made a cheese plate for Friendsgiving and was so pleased with how it turned out!  I  bought everything from Trader Joe’s — which is definitely my go-to for the best cheese plate supplies! I started with four kinds of cheese — brie, cranberry chèvre goat cheese, unexpected cheddar cheese, syrah-soaked Toscano cheese. Then I added two types of crackers (fig and olive crisps + gluten-free savory thin crackers) plus fig butter, salami, prosciutto, cotton candy grapes, blackberries, dried apricots, candied walnuts, and marcona rosemary almonds. I topped it with some rosemary sprigs for some extra color and viola – an easy-ish, affordable cheese […]

Spooky Cute Halloween Decor & Partyware

Spooky Cute Halloween Decor & Partyware

Our neighborhood goes all out for Halloween and it’s always so fun to walk around and see how people decorate. We usually host friends for trick or treating, but this year I had the itch to decorate and party plan a little bit more than usual.  To quote Lucy, “We LOVE a good theme.”  I  found some super cute partyware and decor items and then just…kept going! I’m not super into scary and dark Halloween themes and decor, especially with young kids, but it’s been SO fun to find what I’m calling colorful, not scary, “spooky cute” Halloween decor and partyware. There’s actually SO much […]
