I was super flattered when Abigail of Paper and Cake asked me to collaborate (along with Kristin of Meringue Bake Shop) with her on a styled post she wanted to do. Abigail is a very talented graphic designer and party stylist who I had the pleasure of rooming with in New York several years ago for a Martha Stewart Event.

Since I love a good party I said yes. BUT, I told my son that
I’m craving an adult Halloween party that is grown up, sophisticated. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t really like Halloween. But I think a more arty, avant garde approach would make it tolerable.
