LOOKING FORWARD TO WHAT IS AHEAD

I have to admit I am not one who lives in the here and now. I'm always wanting to move ahead to my future rather then looking back or enjoying my today.

If it's Fall then I'm counting the days until Winter is here with Holidays and New Year looming around the corner.

If it's Winter, I'm looking forward to Spring and all the pretty flowers.

If it's Spring I'm waiting for Summer and the long days spent out doors enjoying the beach or BBQs.

Summer comes and I'm dreaming about Fall and it's crisp cool days.

So I was thrilled to find the new Celebrate magazine was out on the stands. I quickly snatched it up and in my basket it went.

It's time to start thinking about cooling off (it's been hot here in CA) and planning parties for Back to School and Halloween.

Looking forward to sharring dinner with my family at Thanksgiving.

Changing the decor to oranges, reds and golds.


Celebrate helps with all these great days. Like this darling flower arrangement in the colors of Fall.

Adding apples or pencils are a great way to turn your Fall arrangement into one for your child's Teacher on the first day of school.


Who doesn't love caramel apples? Top them with chocolate drizzles and you have an extra yummy treat.

But, don't stop there. Wrap your sticks in lovely ribbon and your caramel apple now takes on a whole new look. More gourmet and classy.



What a fun table setting for a lunch or dinner with Friends on Halloween. Learn how to set your table so it's not only cute but doesn't break the bank.

Make your menu just as fun as the party itself. Not sure what to do in order to make that happen? No worries, Celebrate gives you all the recipes and ideas you will need.



The first thing your company sees when coming over to visit you is the front door.

Make it welcoming and put your guest in the mood with Fall items set out to greet them.

If you have not seen this magazine before then you must search it out. They sell it at Target and all the book stores.

It only comes out four times a year. Once a season.

But beware. Once you get it, you too, will long for what's ahead in the Season that awaits us.

I do love Fall and Halloween. But I am not ready for the cold yet. It is fun to look for fun ideas though. I will have to see if I can find that magazine. Thanks!
