HAPPY DECEMBER 1st.......................

Happy December 1st! I love December 1st it is like a mini-holiday at my house!!!! When I was little my mom started our December 1st tradition, each year on the 1st she would give us a gift to bring in the Holiday Season! Over the years I have received many fabulous things that I still use today...from Christmas decorations, books, ornaments, fun Christmas jewelry anything that can be used through-out the month of December-my mom still does this tradition for each of us and our families. I have also continued this terrific tradition with my husband and kids. I loved growing up in a home where my mom put a lot of time and thought into making Holidays and Birthdays so special Thanks Mom! Love, Marla
We would love to here about some of your Holiday Family Traditions-Happy December 1st!

Who doesn't love Target???? And the Dollar-section has lots of fabulous Christmas finds!!! The glitter words are of course a must have-they come in different colors and words like Noel, Peace, HoHoHo etc. For $2.50 you can't pass up this fun buy.....and these words will go just about anywhere: stick them in your Christmas tree, on the mantel, in your favorite wreath or wrap them in cellophane with ribbon and you will have a great little gift to give. A festive pack of dish towels will really get you ready for all of your holiday cooking. The dollar section also has fantastic retro candies from the 80's and let's face it we are girls of the 80's!!!!! You remember those great games like Sorry, Clue, Life etc. fill your stockings with Game Night candies, LemonHeads or Double Bubble. And last but not least don't forget the jumbo Lollipops, Suckers and CandyCanes!!! You can find these at WalGreen's for $1 so, get out there and get shopping! Have a fantastic Thanksgiving and eat as much as you can!

Grab all your Christmas packages your favorite soda and treat and head on over to your girlfriends house to wrap the night away in style!! This is exactly what we get to do in our neighborhood. Our darling neighbor hosts a wrapping party, after all the kids are tucked in we sneak out and wrap into the wee hours with one another. She will even store any gifts we want to hide down in her basement!!! She has all kinds of wrap and ribbon but of course we can also bring our own!!! Seriously this is the best holiday party, it gets you and your purchases organized. No more all night Christmas Eve wrapping!!!!

Girlfriends, treats, laughing, fun all night long, really what could be better!!!! Have a great time! Plan this one now!!!!

For almost 20 years my mom and her three best friends have taken their daughters the weekend before Thanksgiving shopping together. For some of us it is the only time of year we see each other and we now anticipate it all year long!!! I have had many girlfriends copy this tradition with their sisters and friends. We start first thing Friday morning, then we all meet Friday night at the Hotel for food, matching pajamas, games, and memorable mom entertainment!! Somehow over the years the production the moms create gets better and better. This year it was Dancing with the Stars and the Dads made a guest appearance!! Sister-in-laws are always included and granddaughters are initiated into the group at 12 years old. We have about four granddaughters now, who were inducted by candle light and shopping cash from grandmas. It is a tradition that all the granddaughters anticipate and look forward to.
This is a tradition that will make memories for a lifetime. It can be as simple or as elaborate as you want it to be. Find the time to make these memories, it is worth the effort!!!
Love you Mom, you are the best!!!!!!

We are sorry, we checked out from blogging last week. We were crazy busy getting everything ready for the boutique and we also catered and decorated for a baby shower. By the way Kati, Lisa and Becky thanks for letting us make your baby shower Over The Tipsy Top, we had so much fun doing Kati's big event! Our boutique on Thursday was such a hit that we will not be doing a Draper Boutique. These are some of the items we featured at the boutique. We do have a small amount of stuff left but, not enough for a whole boutique and not enough time to replenish it all by Thursday. It was amazing to us the great response we had, so thanks to all of you who came-we had a fabulous time seeing family, friends and meeting lots of new people! Our boutique days may not end here we are highly considering doing a spring boutique too! We are definitely in the Christmas spirit now, so stay tuned for gift ideas, decorating tips and fabulous Holiday recipes!!!

Now, did you really expect the Tipsy Girls to celebrate Halloween without glitter makeup. Absolutely not!!!! You'll need to double click on the picture to get a good close up. The darling girls at the Mac counter assured us that although body glitter is not meant for eye lids it is safe for the evening!!! The glitter needs to adhere to a cream base. Meaning... creamy eye shadow, liquid foundation, etc. Next, use a small flat makeup brush to pat the glitter into the creamy base. A small amount may fall on cheeks but that just adds to the look. It's that simple, our glitter and cream shadow is from the Mac counter but any product similar will do the trick!! If you have girls at home just dig through that messy drawer in the bathroom!!! This Gorgeous Glitter eye is great for little girls or glitzy moms!!! Have a Glitter-licious evening!!!!

It's almost time for the big day, Halloween is upon us. So gather your friends and neighbors together and celebrate. We are having a potluck dinner right before the trick-or-treaters go out. Hopefully we'll have some neighbors come we've never done this before!! This Halloween don't let those empty planters and urns go unused. Fill them with water and right before guests arrive drop in the dry ice!!! This is so fun for kids and adults. If your planter has a whole in the bottom use a bucket etc. inside to get the same effect. If you have multiple urns you can also float candles in them for the evening. When you buy your dry ice make sure they wrap it really well, preferably in butcher paper. It can evaporate before you even get to it!!!! Have a fabulously spooky night!!!!

We announced last week the winner of our baby giveaway was lucky #16 Kari....who is expecting a little girl this month!!!! We wanted to show you just what she will be receiving.....some of our favorites. Now we both love Christmas and this is the perfect time to add an ornament to any gift that you are giving. (but actually you could add an ornament anytime from about July to February, because the stores seem to have their Christmas stuff out for that long)! The classic piggy bank is always a nostalgic favorite, don't forget another classic; a great measuring-growth chart. Now for a new little girl she has to have a bracelet, let's face it that has to be a main staple to every girls outfit!!!!! A couple onesies and Kari's baby package is complete! Congratulations Kari!!!!

My mother-in-law makes these and they are delicious. She is a wonderful baker, I am a little nervous to try it on my own. Unless you have a sweet lady in your life that will make this for you, you have got to try it on your own!!!

Have a delicious day and enjoy anxiously anticipating the holidays!!!!!!

A cornucopia is actually a very simple project to complete because there really is no right or wrong. Michael's Craft Store, Roberts Crafts or your local craft store will have traditional cornucopias like this one. If you are lucky enough to have a design store close to you they may carry rusty iron cornucopias that are wonderful. If you are going to use fresh cut stems use what you can find in your environment. Consider where you live and find plants, flowers, trees, even palm trees, that grow in your area to fill the cornucopia. Start with floral foam that has been saturated in water, to completely saturate it will take a couple of hours at least. Then cover in floral moss, start adding your cut stems. Gradually fill the cornucopia as if things were just spilling out. To embellish use ribbon, fresh flowers, or mini pumpkins (sprayed with gold spray paint and, or glitter spray of course)!!! Remember this project is simple, its not meant to be hard, don't over think it and use what is in your own environment so your able to keep the cost low!!! Elegant and beautiful does not have to have an extravagant price tag.

We hope to inspire you this year to entertain and create wonderful moments for you, your family and friends. Moments and memories are what really make life Over the Tipsy Top!!!!!

For this great centerpiece you will need orange flowers, skewers, floral foam, pumpkin stem, and leaves. Soak your floral foam until saturated, this will keep your flowers fresh for a few days. Insert skewer into pumpkin stem then insert into floral foam. Start adding flowers, if your stems are delicate use skewer to make whole, then insert stem of flower. Create your pumpkin then top it off with leaves from the garden etc. Thanksgiving day everyone will be so impressed with your creation just set it out on a cake stand and wah-lah!!!! Giving Thanks never looked so good!!!

Layers of snow-white whipped cream and spiced pumpkin mousse create a festive dessert for the holiday season. Top with chocolate curls for an elegant presentation.

5 large egg yolks
1 cup(s) sugar
31/2 cup(s) heavy cream
15 ounce(s) canned pumpkin
2 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoon(s) ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon(s) ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon(s) ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon(s) salt
2 tablespoon(s) dark rum(optional)
1 teaspoon(s) powdered gelatin
3 ounce(s) shaved dark chocolate
1.Fill a large bowl halfway with ice water and set aside.
2.Whisk the yolks, 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, and 3/4 cup cream together in a medium saucepan. Heat while stirring continuously with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon over medium-low heat, until thickened and the mixture coats the spatula -- about 10 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and set over the ice bath. Stir to cool.
3.Add pumpkin, vanilla, spices, and salt to the egg mixture. Stir 1 tablespoon rum and 1 teaspoon gelatin together in a small bowl. Heat the remaining tablespoon rum, and stir in to the gelatin mixture until dissolved. Gently whisk into the pumpkin mixture. Beat 1/2 cup cream to stiff peaks, and fold into pumpkin mixture. Pour into a shallow dish, cover and chill until cold and thick enough to fall from a spoon in heavy dollops -- about 8 hours or up to overnight.
4.Beat the remaining cream and sugar to stiff peaks. Alternately layer the pumpkin mousse and whipped cream in a glass serving dish. Sprinkle the chocolate shavings between top two layers. Serve chilled.
It's crazy but the Holidays are upon us, enjoy every minute, don't let the stress over take the moments.

Seriously, these are life threatening but worth it!! They are covered in thorns and also the best orange berries. When I saw them on the street corner I new they had to come to my house for my fall decor. So Marla and I hit the Road with clippers in hand risking our lives for decor!!! We had to laugh because it is really right on a busy corner and if any of our friends saw us they would know exactly what we were up too!!! This wasn't my first offense, I will knock on any one's door in search of FABULOUS branches for my house. They just have to look overgrown and people are more than willing to let you cut away. The strange looks are just part of the fun. Leave your kids at home though, they are mortified by such a mother!!!!!

Have fun cutting, think out of the box!!!!!!

Okay, lets start with the clutter bow and sparkly glasses. The clutter bow is achieved with scraps of random ribbon the base of the ribbon needs to provide bulk so use tissue paper, cellophane or gift wrap. The base here is Christmas gift wrap crinkled, yes, Christmas but it coordinated with the Halloween ribbon and no one new the difference!!!! The glitter glasses have been on the blog before, now we have them in every color and they have come in very handy!!! Remember, two coats of very fine glitter, still using my Martha Stewart jumbo pack from summer glitter toes. So far I've done 30 glasses so this glitter really goes further than you would expect. Very tedious project though!
The bug-ilicious punch--Diet sprite (two liter), 1 frozen concentrate limeaid, 1/2 frozen concentrate o.j.--SO GOOD!!!
Marla's gift was in the center of the hu-bub under a tall cake dome, then other gifts from friends surrounded the base. So dang cute!! It would be even cuter if your guest got to keep the cake plate and dome but this is one of my favorite so no dice!!!
One more shot of the cake, gave you the recipe yesterday!!!!
I don't know about you but there are a lot of October birthdays around here so hopefully you can take some of these ideas and make your next party Over The Tipsy Top!!!!!!!
