IMG_7561Ooh, hello! As you might have seen on Instagram, I had the immense pleasure of hanging out at the Macy’s on State Street and teaching new friends how to make doughnut pops this past week! As part of their #MacysHomeGNO event, I got to play with the most amazing KitchenAid attachment (seriously, you guys need this spiralizer, it’s amazing),  made the most adorable doughnut pops (complete with sprinkles), and passed out Apple Cider mimosas!

To everyone who came out, I want to say, from the bottom of my heart, thank you so much! It is wildly encouraging to meet new friends and talk about thoughtful entertaining with each and every one of you. It was a total dream. IMG_7643macys1

So here is the breakdown – two other amazing gals (Nicole from Cedar & Rush and Kim from Bride & Joy) and I each had a fun DIY station. Kim was teaching guests how to set the perfect table, Nicole was schooling us on how to accessorize a bar cart, and I was all about the food!

We used the most amazing KitchenAid appliances and styled our pops in Martha Stewart’s latest Fall collection and it was basically magic. Plus, can you see my face? I won’t let that freaking spiralizer out of my sight! The best part where these Apple Cider Mimosas we whipped up. They are super easy & wildly delicious…

BAP_8977It was a total blast and I was so honored to share our gusto for entertaining with such an amazing crowd! Have y’all checked out the Home Department at Macy’s? It’s massive! Literally everything you ever could possible want or need is there & the demo stations…let’s just say, I had a little too much fun 😉
