Outdoor Fall Pie Display

Entertaining simply is how things done over here at Melissa Creates. Fall is my favorite time of the year to entertain. Slightly cooler weather that us Floridians can enjoy calls for a celebration. While we wait on it to get a little cooler I’ve began prepping for multiple gatherings this season. Simple dessert displays are also another fave of mine. There doesn’t need to be tons of sweets or decor on a display to make a statement. What makes the most statement is a yummy homemade delish, am I right?

The only thing this display is missing is colorful leaves. I heart Florida, but wish we got to experience leaves changing and piles of leaves on the ground. I guess I’ll have to make a trip north to see the colors of fall. Darn.   Continue reading

It’s time to for fall entertaining, friends! Halloween is this week so don’t forget to grab your last minute craft ideas here, but I’m so ready to move onto the next set of themed recipes, projects and displays.

Fall = all things pumpkin. My sweet friend Sandy of Firefly Confections shared her pumpkin scone recipe with me recently and I couldn’t wait to give it a try. She’s kinda the best. I added a few extras to my version of her excellent recipe and this will be one that I keep on hand each fall season!

Oh Baby / Dressing the Bump

hello beauitiful bag

I’m totally smitten by the Hello Beautiful bag that Alexis June Weddings sent our way for Blog Fete. So smitten that I had to take a few fun photos with it and the bump!

Now that I’m at week 25 of this blessed pregnancy I’ve learned that it’s ok to go for comfort all day, everyday. I recently picked up some maternity clothes, which I love. It took me awhile to break down and purchase maternity clothes because I wasn’t sure the expense was necessary. It’s necessary.

This past weekend my husband mentioned we haven’t truly taken enough bump photos or fun videos to show our little guy. After heading home from an early morning event we snapped these photos…. frizzy Florida hair and all. I heart them because it shows how truly happy I am.  Continue reading

Gift Idea for Tea Lovers

gift idea for tea lovers

I show lots of love for the coffee drinkers and I can’t skip out on love for those who love afternoon tea time!

As the holidays begin to approach us it’s time to think about our favorite tea (and coffee) drinkers. A  tea drinker would love a custom gift basket or tray for Christmas, but why not surprise a friend simply just because!?! There should be more just because moments in life.

The beautiful fall months bring a cool breeze that pairs perfectly with a warm cup of tea. I prefer honey in my tea, but I know my British peeps prefer a touch of milk. There’s nothing like a warm cup in hand on a gorgeous afternoon.

Gift idea for tea lovers: Head to the store and pick up a few tea options; I suggest grabbing a green tea, a decaf tea and bold berry tea option. Pair the tea bags with a fancy Shop Melissa Creates mug and a shabby chic serving tray and your favorite lady will be over the moon!

Well hello there gorgeous Halloween cocktails!  I might be prohibited to sample these bad boys, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t share and try one or two as a mocktail! If you’re going to host a Halloween party one of these cocktails should make an appearance. It seems like the right thing to do. There’s something to be said about pretty drinks regardless of the occasion.
