Fabulous Flowers and Football

A few weeks ago I had the honor of attending an event planning class with Preston Bailey in NYC. He is a celebrity event planner and his events are beyond fabulous. If you get a chance, check out his blog (on the right) and his website. Its amazing how he transforms spaces. His class was so inspiring and I was fortunate enough to get a chance to talk to him for a while after the class about my own venture here in Litchfield County.
This morning I have been planning my table for Thanksgiving and was just browsing the web for inspirations. I am thinking of doing something different this year instead of the traditional fall colors. I'll let you know what I come up with.
The girls were picked up by their Nana this morning to attend a craft fair, festival of trees and teddy bear picnic tea. Mr.F and I are almost on our way out the door to the UConn game. Should be fun but COLD. I made a ton of food yesterday for tailgating (I get into it with football shaped cookies and all). Mr.F is loading up the car. So we are off! Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!

MMM - I am in the process of starting a social event planning company. He was by far one of the best speakers I have heard. So personable and nice!

Magnolia mama - Someone in the class asked him about planning parties on a budget and he said "I would have no idea!" It was so funny. He said his clients do not have to worry about that! Wouldn't that be amazing!
