We love the hustle and bustle of city life but sometimes it's nice to have an excuse to get away. Happening this weekend is Milton, Georgia's 'Crabapple Fest', an annual event featuring dozens of antique dealers, artists and seemingly endless amounts of delicious food.  Just north of Atlanta, Milton embraces rural living and preserving small town heritage. Our very own BashBLOK CEO and Co-Founder, Brittany Garman will be attending this exciting event. You might find her visiting with local artists and vendors or volunteering at the Canine Assistants booth and, most likely, will have a cute puppy in tow. Be sure to stop by to say hello. She'd love to meet you and give tips on planning your next event or picking up that perfect hostess gift from the festival. Festival Details: Saturday, October 3, 2015 from 10am to 5pm 765 Broadwell Road Milton, GA 30004

It's Fall, our favorite time of year! Even more of a favorite for team BashBLOK is Halloween. This spooky holiday allows our DIY team to get super crafty, creative and lends the opportunity to use glow-in-the-dark paint. To get ready for our upcoming 'All Hallow's Eve' Bash we have prepared a very quick and easy pumpkin centerpiece. The majority of these items for this craft were purchased at Michael's for under $50 with coupons and fall decor promotions. Can't beat that! Follow step-by-step and learn how to recreate this pumpkin display for your next Spooky Bash!

It's National Dog Day and at BashBLOK, we love our furry friends. What better way to celebrate man's/woman's best friend than to treat them to a yummy and healthy snack. Our 'Frosty Paws' recipe is quick, easy and requires no baking. Simply mix these ingredients together and freeze in ice cube trays. If a healthy treat just isn't enough for your special pup we got you covered! Check out the BashBLOK National Dog Day picks.

When gift shopping for a man of style, finding pieces that are unique as he is can be quite a challenge regardless of the occasion. The options often seem repetitive and impersonal which just won't do for someone oh so special in your life. However, with the creativity and knack for thinking "outside the box", our procurement team has found a few, very special and unique gift pieces that are sure to inspire. First up, an antique lap writing desk from the late 1800's. Pretty cool, huh? This is the perfect piece for housing pocket squares, cufflinks or even the more obvious choice, personalized stationary. See our Ebay picks of similar pieces below.

It's not a party unless your are greeted by a very large stuffed giraffe! Jenny Pak and her team of talented designers and florists expertly collaborated to create a truly magnificent first birthday for her son, Josiah. We are so in love with this safari themed bash including gold painted toy animal accessorized with party hats, soft and sophisticated floral arrangements anchored by burlap table runners and the best part, safari hats for the guests. This first birthday bash was definitely a smash! Read more about this special day on the Hostess with the Mostess Blog. 

  At BashBLOK, we absolutely love the style and distinction of the Art Nouveau and Art Deco Eras. Combining the curves of Nouveau and the geometrics of Deco we are quite taken by these invitation designs from Ceci New York. But, this glorious combination does not have to stop with stationary. Check out the BashBLOK picks for this fabulous mix, perfect for making yourself and your home bash ready.

At BashBLOK, we think good manners goes a long way. Whether it be at the dinner table, a social gathering or the board room, common courtesy and kindness is always a must. We may not dress for dinner or use the correct fork for salad anymore but the importance making a good impression still carries on. Check out our top picks for tips on etiquette, charm and elegance.

Fellas, ever notice how lonely the pocket of your suit jacket looks? Well, let it be lonely no more by learning the art of the pocket square. This is an easy trend to adopt as pocket squares can be inexpensive and pretty easy to place in your pocket. Check out the easy-to-follow guide to folding and our top pocket square picks.

Team BashBLOK is thrilled to share this summer craft project with you from the Between Naps on the Porch blog. Often times, seasonal decorations can be a little spendy so we love finding budget friendly entertaining hacks. Our DIY team is already curating the supplies to recreate these absolutely stunning seashell chargers. We think this project is sure to impress your guests and add a bit of the beach to your summer tablescape decor.
