I will be the first to admit that summer is my favorite season of the year. If it wasn’t for all the cute fall decorations and super yummy pumpkin-flavored things, I would seriously go into fall kicking and screaming. So, this year when fall reared its head yet again, I needed my pumpkin fix quick! And, just like magic our latest shipment from Seattle Chocolates arrived with their seasonal truffle flavor, Pumpkin Spice. Ahh, I was seriously giddy! I quickly scooped up a handful of truffles along with our new ‘eek’ air filled balloon, and a chai tea candle. Before I knew it, I was enjoying all my favorite things about fall – cute decor, delicious pumpkin goodies and my favorite smells – and reminded that each season has its highlights.
We’ve got a super simple and fun party favor idea for you today! Your guests will love this confetti mini champagne bottle! As a bonus, we’ve got a free printable tag for you too! You can also purchase mini champagne bottles here. We love One Hope Wine because every single bottle has a portion of sales donated to a charity. By purchasing these mini bottles, you help provide one meal to a child in need. Pretty awesome, right? So drink up witches!
Fall is my favorite time of year. Don’t get me wrong, I love summer but I just love everything about fall – chilly sunny mornings, boots and scarves, changing leaves and making every kind of soup possible! This fall, how about set up a soup bar! Invite friends over to watch some football and offer a few different hearty soups instead of your typical chips and dip. Pair your soups with yummy beer bread and a side salad for a meal that’s sure to be a crowd pleaser! Read on for a few of our faves!
Head over to Will Cook for Smiles for a great baked potato soup recipe! Serve up toppings on the side with a cute hand stamped spoon for a festive touch!
How about an easy Broccoli Cheddar Soup? Check out The Little Kitchen for their delicious take on a yummy favorite. My daughter is crazy about broccoli cheddar soup and couldn’t get enough of this one!

Of course a chili bar is a fall meal – especially for football games! We love to put out a big pot of chili with loads of toppings so everyone can make up their favorite bowl. This Pale Ale Chili recipe from Homemade Interest is a perfect one – you can tailor the recipe to your crowd or even make a few batches if you have both vegetarians and meat eaters! Find the recipe here!

We are so excited to share with you this gorgeous Bridal Shower Brunch by Carolina of Mint Event Design. This shower is filled with so many lovely details! I mean who doesn’t love mimosas and cupcakes with your besties?!
Carolina used our candy tube for favors and we think they look totally darling!
This dessert table! Every detail is perfect. I love the accents of gold!
Mimosa bar – do I need to say more? Mimosas go perfectly with a spring brunch and this one is almost to lovely to drink.
I love the classic look of this place setting. The utensil tag is such a simple and lovely touch that really pulls together the whole setting.
This table runner is quite possibly my favorite part of this table. This garland adds a beautiful pop of color and fresh look to this table.
Do what you do BEST, let the others handle the rest! That’s our motto!
A while back we started asking our customers, especially our regulars – you know who you are, “Why do you come here? Why Fancy That?” And while the answers were somewhat varied, they all came back to our unique product. Whether it’s a party, a gift or a little something for yourself, you guys like Fancy That, because, well, we are fancy… Go figure?!
So, this is awesome, you guys dig what we are doing, which is why we are going to start doing more of it! Yep, while we love all of our product, frankly some of it you can get just about anywhere now. And, let’s face it, it takes up a lot of dang space. Space that can be filled by even cuter and more unique decor and gifts! We are going to start transitioning away from a few of our party basics – think table cloths, utensils, pom poms, you get the idea… and fill that space with more super cute, unique and yes, lots more of the snarky products you love. We will for sure always carry favorite lines like Meri Meri, Sambellina, Slant, My Mind’s Eye, and About Face – just more of it!
At the end of the day, we are going to stick to what we do best and that’s FANCY!
Next week, we will be having our first Buy 1 Get 1 Free Sale. We will be saying goodbye to many old favorites so that we can say hello to new favorites!

Champagne on the rocks! Pouring champagne over rock candy is probably one of our favorite things. The rock candy flavors the champagne for a fun and easy cocktail! Try it with a clear soda for a non-alcoholic treat!
