3. Say Happy Birthday in style.
4. Make a bunch to keep in your party closet.
5. An awesomely creepy backdrop.
I recently saw the Matisse cut outs show at the Met, and it was definitely inspirational. This simple mobile is reminiscent of the shapes Matisse used, but more directly taken from fall leaves. The warm metallics and wood tones will look beautiful over your Thanksgiving table, or just hanging around the house as the season changes.

I did a guest post on Design*Sponge on how to make typography pumpkins (I think technically it’s some sort of squash but for all intents and purposes I’m calling it a grey pumpkin.) See the full DIY here!
There’s a full moon happening next week. Wouldn’t it be fun to throw a Sky Party to celebrate? Here are a few fun party ideas we found on Pinterest for the occasion (PS – more party pins here.)
My friend Eunice Moyle of the fabulous letterpress stationery company Hello Lucky showed me a picture of the ticket booth she made for a Monster Halloween Party. My first thought was “What a great theme for a party” and then I asked her to let me take pictures to share. She made the whole thing from cardboard and tempera paints, it is seriously genius! It’s just a reminder that the the best things are usually made from creativity and not expensive materials.
