Royal Wedding Supplies

I told you last week that I'm having such a hard time finding British party supplies for the Royal Watch Party I'm hosting.  Looking for napkins and plates...nada.  However, if I'd like a commemorative refrigerator, well that my friends, is available...

Now, I consider myself to be a little over the top.  I am hosting a watch party after all (though I'm suspecting scant attendance).  I'd even quite fancy a commemorative tea towel or piece of China marking the special day, but a refrigerator...come on!

I have actual located a US store online that is selling party supplies for the occasion... Plum Party

They have some of the adorable stuff that the Middleton's are selling on their website Party Pieces (but of course I wasn't going to pay to ship it overseas!)

Paper Plates that look like fancy Royal china
Napkins

Really Official Napkins

Bunting (love the Corgis)

Cupcake Decorations


and special tea bags!

Wills & Kate

or you can include the whole family


I'll have to decide what to order.  I think it is all so cute!  Thank goodness for Plum Party...they rock!

I saw the Wills and Kate on the Today show or some other program and think they are hillariously fun, not as much fun as the fridge but more of a practicle kind of fun.
Too bad I ordered a new fridge today before I saw this post!

I love the fridge. What a conversation starter!!

I so wish I could come to the party- because I'll be up watching all by myself. But, Caroline has a gymnastics meet that I would miss if I went to Dallas. Sorry!

Swiss Oatmeal {Copy Cat Recipe}

I'm obsessed with Swiss Oatmeal.  I particularly love  Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.  If you are not familiar with Swiss Oatmeal, it is a cold oatmeal cereal with fruit and nuts.

I've had a similar recipe for years, but it was only similar.  It wasn't close enough for my liking.  So I finally set out into the land of Pinterest to find a recipe that was a good Copy Cat.  I found a few, combined them and came up with what I think is a very close Copy Cat Recipe of Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.

Here's what I do (note, this recipe is really just pictures, because I don't really have measurements for these things.  The photos aren't great, but it's easier if I show you what I do)...

Here's the Phase 1ingredients... Milk Honey Yogurt (I use a vanilla greek yogurt) Oats (old fashioned, not quick...you probably could do steel cut too)  I've simplified this to where you only need a bowl and a spoon for Phase 1 because I use my yogurt cup as a meas…

It's all about the dress...

I mean I guess it's really all about getting married, but come on, you always anticipate the dress right?  Well holy moly folks!  Today a big secret was released to the press.  No, we still don't know which dress or tiara Kate will be wearing, but we heard for the first time that Princess Diana had a back-up dress!  Here are some of the pictures and sketches...

And you know what?  I like the back-up dress better than the one she wore!  I know, I know.  I'm going to get blasted for saying that, but I'll just confess it right now... My name is Kara and I've never thought Princess Diana's dress was all that and a bag of chips.  Nope.  Not my favorite Royal Wedding Dress by any stretch of the imagination.  What is my favorite?  Probably the one that Sarah Ferguson wore when she married Andrew...
It had beautiful beading and stitching throughout.  Also on the train it had an "A&quo…

Pumpkins, Gourds & Flowers, oh my!

Yesterday, I went to the Dallas Arboretum.  Lisa, Jennifer, and I went as my birthday outing.  We got a late start due to some court delays, so we stopped for lunch first.  I needed some make-up too, so we went to Neimans.  We ogled some purses, had lunch, I got some make-up and then we headed out to the arboretum (in the rain).

It was raining pretty good on the way over, but luckily, we only needed umbrellas for a few minutes.  Thankfully the sun never came out, because it was so humid, I'm pretty sure we would have melted. 




First, we made our way toward the Pumpkin Village...

I love how they made garland out of the mini-pumpkins...






These rose bushes were just stunning!  The roses on each bush varied in color from a coral, to a blush, to a purple hue...
It was Fall at the arboretum, and pumpkins, gourds, and mums are a large part of the visit.  However, they also have a Chihuly art exhibition going on.  I took so many pictures, I HAVE to make that it's whole separate post.  …
