What's the temperature where you are? Currently it's 12 degrees for me with a wind chill below zero. This is what they call atypical weather for our area of south eastern Pennsylvania... thank goodness. The snow finished in the middle of the night topping off at 10 inches. If it was not so cold I would consider a day of sledding, but we wouldn't last 10 minutes out there. What is one to do with some young kiddies who are cooped up and climbing the walls? Bake of course. We brought out the mixer and whipped up a bundt cake...

In the world of weddings I was already busy with an gorgeous wedding last night. The Bride's vision was a romantic...

As we wrap up the Christmas holiday,… (did you eat too much?, me too!)… and get ready to watch the big ball drop tonight, I want to wish all of you the very best for the upcoming year. From myself, my family and the entire Bob Mackie team. It was a whirl wind week for us in the Jansen household. As promised, here are photos of the very colorful Christmas Eve table: I really did feel that I was being channeled my Bob with the right splashes of color… it indeed was an eye candy extravaganza for...

As an floral and decor event designer, I work very hard throughout the year creating gorgeous works for all sorts of events. It's a job that I love because no two events are the same and it allows my creativity to flow. Christmas is the one time of the year that I host my own event where I go all out with the floral and decor… Christmas Even. It's almost become a contest each year of out doing the last. When my guests arrive now they are always so curious to see what the table looks like. We literally remove...
