Just yesterday you were preparing for your baby's arrival, and now you suddenly find yourself planning her first birthday. From a new kind of flip book to future messaging, take inspiration from these nine ways to document the most memorable moments of her first year. As she grows up, they'll mean even more to you!
Ordering flowers online is one of those things that sounds great in theory but ends up being disappointing in practice.
The Bouqs, a start-up out of Venice, CA, has changed the floral game. All of their arrangements are a flat $40 ($50 for a double) and sourced directly and responsibly from Ecuador, and — this is the best part — they offer three subscription services: Never Forget (for birthdays, anniversaries, and the like), Just Because (who doesn't want to get flower bombed for no good reason?), and Regular Blooms (weekly, bimonthly, or whatever), which means that you will always end up smelling like a rose. Did we mention the free shipping?
This is my bouquet of Peace roses, five days in. You wish this photo was scratch and sniff!
Basically, The Bouqs is a genius idea whose time has come. The only bad thing about it is that we didn't think of it ourselves!
These goodies are so gorgeous no one will ever know they didn't cost a small fortune. Gilded glassware, sparkling jewels, artful decor — it's all here, it's all chic, and it all rings in at $25 or less.
I just discovered Etsy's new feature, Gift Ideas for Facebook Friends; have you tried it out yet? Just allow Etsy to access your Facebook, pick one of your friends, and the feature rounds up gift ideas based on everything from their favorite movie to their hometown, to their affinity for board games. I found some of the picks surprisingly accurate (love the Polaroid finds for myself!), but some didn't quite hit the mark, like a UCLA Bruins baby bib it recommended for my single (childless), 20-something girlfriend who "Liked" UCLA on Facebook. Even if some of the ideas weren't right for that particular friend, certain themes — especially for movies and TV shows — would be perfect for other friends and family on my holiday shopping list.
If you have checked out the feature, what did you think? Did you find some good gift ideas?

Everyone's tried a pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving — but pumpkins are useful for so much more than just pie. This year, my family will free up the oven by deep-frying the bird — and since the oil will be hot, why not try something new and cook up some pumpkin fries?
I served my first few batches of pumpkin fries with a spicy aioli, but a cranberry dipping sauce would be a great alternative as well. If you're in the mood for something sweet, sprinkle the last batch with cinnamon and sugar. These fries are easy to prep and fry just before the big feast, especially with the fryer already hot. If you're ready to give up the pie and start with a fry, then keep reading for the recipe.
