Halloween is almost here, so why not indulge your inner child with this sweet treat? Candy corn is a notorious Halloween candy, as well as an aesthetically pleasing one, with bold hues of yellow and orange.

What better way to freshen up a classic fall color than to set it off with a pop of the unexpected? Go in a unique (and gorgeous!) new direction by pairing deep burgundy with cool mint for your wedding decor. Although not your average matrimonial shades, the two are in the same family of hues and work despite their contrast, creating striking table bouquets and invitations alike. Mismatched vintage bottles make interesting and colorful flower vases--go on a scavenger hunt for the perfect collection as a fun DIY project you and your fiancé can share!

Good morning New York! Today's made product comes to you from Mercer's Ice Cream, which uses only local dairy from New York state farms. Many of the farmers have received the prestigious Empire State "Super Milk" quality awards, as well as dairy of distinction awards, ensuring quality products.
