Fall Bucket List: Host a Wine Tasting

Fall Bucket List: Host a Wine Tasting

So, we went a little above and beyond for the last item on our Fall Bucket List. We hosted a wine tasting + went to a winery! It seems there is always something to celebrate in the office. Our Social Media & Digital Marketing Manager, Jessica, got MARRIED!! She’s the darling blonde you have seen on our blog before (like the picnic in the park + pumpkin patch posts.) We had so much fun having a bunch of Mud Pie gals & guys over to toast the new bride and groom! We had a little wine + charcuterie board tasting and then spent the weekend at Montaluce Winery, where the sweet couple said their vows. Take a look at how much fun we had sending off the sweetest couple ever.

#FallingForMP

We absolutely love celebrating every little moment here at Mud Pie and it is even more fun when we are celebrating our own! We were #FallingForMP in more ways than one. The boards we used to lay out our meat & cheese were absolutely stunning and everything looked 10 times better when it was in a Mud Pie bowl, or on a Mud Pie plate.

Need hostess gifts for the holidays, hosting a wedding shower of your own, or want to start stocking up for the new year? Shop all of our boards/bowl/plates here (and then keep shopping around and you’ll fall for Mud Pie too)

Host a Wine Tasting: CHECK

We had an absolutely blast showering the bride and groom with a wine tasting and joining them as they took the leap towards forever together. Now, that is a wrap on our Fall Bucket List! We have had such a great time this Fall checking off every item and we hope you did too. Did you check off any of the items on your Fall bucket list? Post your photos on social media, tag us @mudpiegift and use #FallingForMP so we can see how you tackled the bucket list!

Fall Bucket List: Host a Friendsgiving

Fall Bucket List: Host a Friendsgiving

The holidays are FINALLY upon us and we couldn’t be more excited to kick off all of the celebrations. Here at Mud Pie, we don’t just work together, we spend a lot of our free time with each other too! We had a few Mud Pie gals over for a Friendsgiving and our stomachs are aching from laughing so much and eating such delicious food.

First, the decor!

Not going to lie, we wish we could get away with keeping our table looking this good all year round! On our Friendsgiving table was the Grainsack Pumpkin Table Runner, an Oh So Thankful Printed Napkin for each guest with their name in our Green Pumpkin Place Card Holder, Feather Pumpkin Table Sitters (both the small and large), the Pine Cone Candle Holders and the Terracotta Pumpkin Salt & Pepper Shaker Set. Being Mud Pie gals, we had to decorate the entire place! We swapped out our everyday pillow for the Happy Fall Hook Pillow, the best selling Pumpkin Three Piece Tray Set that sat in the middle of our coffee table and replaced our oven towels with the Fall French Knot Linen Hand Towel and the Turkey French Knot Towel.

Now the delicious food!

Wow, we had so much food, we could have fed everyone in the office! We stuffed ourselves full of the most delicious food and now we all have very happy food babies. (Can we take a nap, please?) We toasted to everything we are grateful, thankful and blessed for in the world and then dove right in! In Mud Pie style, we had to have a charcuterie board. We placed the cheese, meat & grapes on our Wood & Enamel Turkey Serving Board and the crackers on our Thankful Mini Ceramic Serving Pedestal to give it some height. Of course we put the stuffing in our Thankstuffing Ceramic Serving Bowl Set (comes with a spoon that says ‘I’m Stuffed, You’re Stuffed, We’re all Stuffed’), the brussels sprouts in the Circa Veggie Bowl Set and the sweet potato casserole in the Oh So Thankful Baker Set (spoon says ‘Let the stuffing begin’). You can put the baker set in the oven up to 350 degrees! We also had an amazing salad with walnuts, goat cheese,cucumbers and beets all tossed over spinach and we had mac and cheese served in our Leftovers Ceramic Dish Two Piece Set (spoon says ‘Second Time Around’) but recommend serving it in our Ceramic Mac & Cheese Serving Bowl Set (comes with a spoon that says ‘Cheesy Goodness’). We set our absolutely mouth watering turkey on the Metal Acorn Serving Tray and decorated it with a little rosemary (you could also serve it on our Scalloped Turkey Serving Platter Set that comes with a fork that we used that says ‘Talk Turkey To Me’). Of course we couldn’t forget the cranberry sauce, which we put in our darling Tin Turkey Mini Dip Cup Stand Set. Don’t worry, we had dessert too! We made the BEST monkey bread we have ever tasted and put it on display on the Cake Pedestal Stand.

Fall Bucket List: Play in the Leaves

Fall Bucket List: Play in the Leaves

The leaves are changing, the temperature dropping and the ground is covered in Fall colors. There is just something about the smell of cooler air that makes us fall in love with Fall every time we walk out the door. Would it be possible for us to go through the season without finding the crunchiest leaf? Of course not! So we spent a little time outside dressed head to toe in Mud Pie, playing in the leaves!

Have you updated your Fall/Winter wardrobe yet? We finally cleared out most of our Spring style (we left those few transition pieces though!) and now we are absolutely falling in love with Mud Pie’s Fall fashion. Pieces for work, a date night, or cool days spent outside, Mud Pie Fashion offers an item for every Fall occasion! (PS: they also are the BEST gifts to give over the holidays…just throwing that out there!) Did you know our Tripp Sleeveless Top in Floral is a water color print created by an in-house water color artist? How cool and unique is that? Just another reason to add Mud Pie to your Fall wardrobe this season.

Play in the Leaves: CHECK

We had so much fun playing in the leaves and spending a few hours outside in this gorgeous Fall weather. Have you spent the afternoon with your little ones playing in the leaves? We want to see a photo! Post your photos on social media, tag us @mudpiegift and use #FallingForMP so we can see how you tackle the bucket list!

Fall Bucket List: Bake a Pie from Scratch

Fall Bucket List: Bake a Pie from Scratch

Is your mouth watering yet? We thought we had our fill of sweets last night trick or treating, but nope. We have our eye on the pie and we want you to be drooling, too! We are tackling the next item on our Fall Bucket List and want to show you how we add our twist and bake a pie from scratch.

Circa Pie Plate & Server Set | Baelyn Plaid Shirt 

Ingredients & Recipie

For the pie crust:

25 Oreo Cookies

5 tablespoons unsalted melted butter

——

  1. Finely crush your cookies. I like to use a food processor for this step, but you can also place the cookies in a plastic bag and roll the sealed bag with a rolling pin. If you’re using a rolling pin, seal the bag but leave about an inch open for air to escape. You’ll have to put some muscle in it to get a fine crush. The crust sticks together best when the cookies are crushed finely.

NOTE: You do NOT need to remove the filling from the Oreo.

2. Stir the cookie crumbs and melted butter together with a fork. Press crumbs into the bottom and up the sides of our Circa Pie Plate. Chill until ready to fill.

3. For a no-bake pie: chill the crust about 30 minutes before filling, then fill/chill as directed in the recipe.

Recipe from: Crazy for Crust 

For the filling:

1 cup heavy whipping cream

1 block (8 oz) cream cheese, softened

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/2 cu[s crushed Oreo cookies

Additional Oreos and whipped cream for garnish (optional)

——

1. In medium mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy {to avoid lumps make sure cream cheese is really soft or place in microwave for 20 seconds}.

2. Add in vanilla extract and granulated sugar. Beat until combined.

3. In separate bowl, beat the heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form.

4. Using a rubber spatula, pour the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture and gently mix together. Fold in the crushed Oreo cookies and combine.

5. Dump into the pie crust and smooth the top.

6. Refrigerate for 6 hours before serving.

7. Before serving, garnish with additional whipped cream and Oreos.

Recipe from: Together as a Family

#FallingForMP

Well we learned a few things baking a pie from scratch. One, we LOVE pie (but that doesn’t surprise us) and two, we aren’t professional pie stylists, but we are putting professional bakers on our resume because it was DELISH! It was so easy and fun using our Circa Pie Plate & Server Set. We also have a wide variety of mixing bowls, especially for the holiday, and a vintage-inspired Circa Measuring Spoon Set. Want to make individual pies? Check our our Mini Ceramic Desert Sets.
