A Hearty Harvest…

It was a brisk autumn morning, and I had a busy day ahead of me. I knew I’d need a good breakfast to keep me going, so I fried up some eggs and bacon, toasted some bread and steamed some milk for hot cocoa. I had already finished my eggs, but my husband was no place to be seen for his… and I have to admit, they smelled good enough that I considered eating his share, too! Instead, I sat and drank my cocoa. I was wearing my quirky and adorable Sunday Breakfast dress from Zanzibar CreationZ, but even with the wood stove burning, I was a touch cold, so I tossed on my Carolina jacket from e! to stave off the chill. And, so maybe I cheated a bit on the breakfast and had it catered by Rassasy Foods… shhh. Don’t tell Rad on me!

Breakfast

I spent the day decorating, and getting things right for my Harvest Party. However, with my eldest daughter usually off at Hogwarts, I didn’t want to miss the rare opportunity for some bonding time. So, we went out onto the patio (which I built myself, well, sorta… and yeah, I’m actually dorky enough to be proud of that one prim I didn’t even texture). Ashlan was thrilled when I used a bit of magic to light us a fire. Sitting in our comfy What Next Autumn Porch chairs, in the glow of the embers, as the fire crackled away, we sipped on yet more cocoa… and we weren’t cold at all! It helped that Ash was dressed for the weather in her Tres Blah sweater dress and Sn@tch tights!

Fireside bonding

Alas, all good things must end, and Ash used the Floo Network to return to school… while I changed into festive – yet comfy – party attire. I had snagged my cute top from ISON at The Arcade, along with this collar from Piddle. The skirt is Elena from Sn@tch… I love the silvery threads woven through it. My adorable shoes are another Arcade find, one my friend Cami was kind enough to share when she got an extra. These Ariane shoes from Ingenue are one of the “rares” you can win – if you’re lucky. My autumn decor is from What Next. I loved this Pumpkin Party Cooler set. It dispenses drinks, and it’s oh-so-adorable. Definitely put me in the party mood, which is rare! Also, for those who prefer their harvest drinks warm and non-alcoholic, I naturally had to make the Pumpkin Spice Lattes on this tray… you can get the recipe from the What Next Autumn Frames set, and it’s so cute that you’ll also want to hang it up to share with all! And because I’m a chocoholic, there was also more cocoa on hand!

Harvest Party

Though nervous, I think I managed to pull off my role as hostess rather nicely. My buffet table from La’Lalicious was the perfect place for all my party accouterments, along with this adorable scale that What Next has to offer from Zodiac this round (and I believe the scales are exclusive to the event). My hair got a bit messy, as you can see, but I think it worked with the boho chic look I’d put together.

Cocoa anyone?

I like to think a fun time was had by all… and I’m looking forward to my holiday party! I definitely plan to get that catered, too. 😉
