I’m honored to be featured on The Kitchn’s “Gatherings From The Kitchn” series this week. Working alongside the talented Anjali Prasertong, we threw a Pumpkin Carving Dinner Party for some of our closest friends. The day was beautiful captured by photographer Bridget Pizzo.

I’m especially proud of the interview post, where I reveal some of my hard learned secrets for throwing a stress free, but stylish dinner party. Thanks Anj!

Happy Autumn Friends! This summer has been full of change for Apples & Onions. The end of some things and the beginning of new things. We have been away from this space for awhile, but with the onset of fall we are back! We look forward to sharing new parties, recipes and exciting collaborations we have percolating.
How darling is this print by Jones Design Company? I’m dusting off my slippers and stocking up on white pumpkins and Honeycrisp apples.
After taking a second look at the fall fashion inspiration I’ve been collecting… I see a skinny leg theme. Sigh. Will just have to rock these looks with my real person thighs and be ok with it.
Maybe I should read some Tom Robbins to go with my skinny leg looks. Up first on my to wear list; white jeans with black boots and navy blazer.
Thanks to a hot tip from friends I visited the BEST pumpkin patch today. Forneris Farms is just outside of LA in the Valley. A family run farm who sets up a mini fall carnival with tons of pumpkins at very affordable prices, a big corn maze and lots of yummy food. Most of the gourds I bought are for a work event but I found a few favorites to liven up our home for the season.
love the muted palette of these greys, whites and salmon hued pumpkins
Here is how I arranged them in my home…
Such a satisfying weekend activity. Pumpkins, check.

Happy Friday, lovebugs! What are you up to?
I’m washing and folding baby clothes and putting together my stroller and co-sleeper. At the rate I’m moving, it may take all weekend.
We’ve had two days of real fall weather here, but tomorrow it’s back to the high 80s : (. At least I can daydream of moments like these.
A gorgeous space in Fort Greene.
Tall boots for girls with skinny calves.
10 ways to be great today.
Two vegetarian recipes we played with this week:
Chard and white bean stew
Roasted butternut squash salad with warm apple cider vinaigrette (make a meal with toasted olive bread spread with goat cheese)
Ever wondered what the difference is between a nutritionist and a dietitian? Me too. Anjali has the answer.
Zara Home has a kids’ collection and it’s just as amazing as the big kid shop.
My next book club book is Beautiful Ruins. Have you read it?
Happy Fall, lovebugs!
What are you up this weekend?
Lydia is visiting friends and one gorgeous baby in the mountains of Colorado. I’m taking a baby care class which is great because A. I love classes and B. I have never changed a diaper. Not once. Never, ever.
Please don’t tell my bump.
If you’re looking for weekend fun stuff, here are a few things that caught my eye:
An animal print clutch that purrs DVF but costs ASOS.
An on-going adventure into non-toxic makeup. Joanna’s trying everything- the mascaras, the foundations, etc.,- and rating them for women who won’t settle for “meh”. She’s already found some great stuff. (Lydia and I both swear by the Josie Maran argan oil products).
Do you love paint colors as much as I do? Do you love cute boys? Meet Emily Henderson and her gorgeous-men-as-the-key-to-choosing-the-perfect-wall-color series. She’s done R. Patz (navy blue) and Ryan Gosling (gray!). It works.
Let’s run away here.
Clint. Doesn’t that make you laugh?
Do you need another reason to love Stanley Tucci?
My new favorite blog.
Enjoy your weekend,
