It’s OFFICIALLY fall, which, for me, means two things: traveling and celebrating! I have three trips and three big events to celebrate this fall. (I guess three is my lucky number.) One of my favorite things about fall is packing away my summery florals and breaking out my favorite fall pattern: plaid!
For me, plaid goes far beyond clothing. Plaid is a way of life! I’m hosting a big Halloween party next month, so I’ve been on the lookout for cute dinning sets. I didn’t want to go with a traditional Halloween theme since I plan on using the set in November for Thanksgiving and my sister’s birthday celebration!
Last week, during one of my daily Target runs, I spotted the CUTEST plaid mug and appetizer plate. I immediately knew I had to have it for my Halloween bash (pumpkin spice lattes, anyone?). Just my luck, they had an entire plaid kitchen/dining section to match! Since plaid is my go-to fall pattern (can you blame me? It literally goes with everything!), I decided to grab a few more party/hosting essentials.
I went with the Threshold Placemat in Blue/White, the Threshold Plaid Mixing Bowl in Navy Blue Plaid, the Threshold Appetizer Plate and the Threshold Stackable Mug in Light Blue.
You can’t have a Halloween bash without pumpkin spice lattes, little candy pumpkins and a Hocus Pocus screening. (Side note: I am NOT a horror movie fan at all, but I can’t help but LOVE this movie! I’m pretty sure every other ’90s kid would agree!)
My favorite thing about this set is how easily it can transition from Halloween, to Thanksgiving to fall birthday celebration! That’s what I love about plaid—it’s so versatile!
I have a confession: I am not much of a makeup person. In fact, I probably only wear makeup once every two weeks, if that. That’s not to say I don’t like makeup, because I actually really love it. It’s just hard for me to justify spending so much money on it. (I’d much rather spend my hard-earned money on my monthly Disney trips! I guess it’s just a matter of priorities.) That’s why when I saw the new plaid (why does plaid make everything so much cuter?) Sonia Kashuk collection, I knew I had to get it. Cute AND reasonably priced? SOLD!
Since I’ll be traveling so much this fall (I can’t wait to head to NYC in two weeks and California in three), I decided to pick up the Sonia Kashuk Small Train Case in Plaid to carry all of my new beauty products in. I also picked up the Sonia Kashuk Grand Bazaar Hidden Treasure Chubby Brush Set, the Sonia Kashuk Grand Bazaar Color Palette in Spice Market, Sonia Kashuk Grand Bazaar Illuminating Loose Powder in Exotic Crystal and some new nail polish (red is truly the perfect color for fall!).
I love that the travel case came with a little mini bag inside of it. It’s the perfect size for storing blush, nail polish and even hair accessories! Oh, fall (and plaid), how I love you so!
