Fall Soup Recipes

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!

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!

Exciting Changes Coming!

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!

BOGO sale at Fancy That

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!  Stop on by and stock up on cute party and gift items at an amazing price.  Want a sneak peek at what goes on sale next Tuesday?  Follow our facebook page – starting Saturday night we will be listing a lot of the products that are going to be on sale!  If you are not local, you can still take advantage of the sale by posting on those item photos and we will send you an invoice!

Beauty and The Beast Bridal Shower

Be our guest at the most fab Beauty and The Beast themed bridal shower! It’s all in the details and Bella C Parties did an amazing job styling this magical soiree with party pretties from Fancy That!

From the tiny gold teacups to the stunning cake made by Sewell Sweets, there is nothing ordinary about this party, so let’s take a peek, shall we?

We love how Bella C used our gold acrylic letters as both a photo prop and a banner!

Balloons are so in right now and people are coming up with such creative ways to use them! Our Mrs. & Mrs. , and metallic gold balloons were used as a table back-drop here and we love it!

All the heart eyes for these place settings! Our custom favors look so cute in the little gold tea cups! And check out our yellow scalloped plates and rose gold napkins.

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!

We love getting to collaborate with so many talented women and this was such a fun shoot – check out the list of vendors below and show them some love!

How To Hygge, Fancy Style

Drink Tea and Hygge Cup Sleeve | Fancy ThatPhoto credit:  Katie Hickenbottom Photography


The holidays are over but that doesn’t mean you need to let the winter blues get you down.  In fact, winter is the perfect time to enjoy hygge.  

What is hygge you ask?

Hygge (pronounced “HUE-gah”) is a Danish concept of creating happiness, comfort and coziness in our lives. Think a crackling fire, a pair of cozy socks, a warm blanket, lots of candlelight, a warm cup of tea, good friends and great food.   All of us at Fancy That love to hygge.  So we decided to share our tips on how to hygge fancy style.  

Candles – Light those candles (lots of them)!  The glow of a candle is the best way to embrace the hygge tradition.   You can also include warm toned lamps or twinkle lights as well.  If you’ve got a fire place, light it up!  The roar and glow of a fire is perfect to hygge.  Need to update your candle stash?  One of our favorites is our Paddywax soy candle collection.  We have lots of colors and scents – the salted grapefruit is a staff favorite!   

Hot Drink –  There is nothing more relaxing than snuggling up with a warm beverage, right? Put on the kettle and brew up a cup of tea, coffee or cider (we’ve been known to spike it too!)  We love mugs…like a lot!  Pick one that makes you smile and brings up happy thoughts!  

Get Cozy – Find the warmest, coziest socks you can.   Throw on your pajamas or comfy sweats and oversized sweaters.  Seriously, ditch the jeans and get comfy! 

The Blanket – Get the softest, coziest blanket you can find to wrap yourself up in.   

Sweet Treat – What is your favorite treat to enjoy?  I will never turn down a brownie or truffle!  Whatever you crave, enjoying a decadent treat is the perfect compliment to your hot drink. 

Unplug – This is important!  Unplug from social media, emails and texts.  Journal, read a book or magazine, listen to music, invite a friend over and catch up.

Now, let’s hygge!   

Hygge kits make a lovely gift –  stop by our Orenco Station shoppe and we will help you put one together!   Visit our pinterest board for more ideas on how to hygge!
