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: 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.

Every time we check something off our Bucket List, we fall more and more in love with Mud Pie. But we are not surprised, because Mud Pie has the perfect items fit for celebrating every occasion! We had so many darling items to pick from, it was hard to narrow down to the few we used. And how fun are the prints that our Mud Pie gals are wearing? Did you know our Jesse Flounce Dress 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.

Fall Bucket List: Go to a Football Game

Fall Bucket List: Go to a Football Game

In our office, we have football fans from all over the country. Michigan, Buffalo, Auburn, Green Bay, you name it, we rep it. Our headquarters are located in Stone Mountain, Georgia, which means there are a ton of Tech fans, Falcons fans, Georgia Southern fans, Georgia State fans, and Dawg fans. We decided to head up to Athens to check off our first Fall bucket list item and you can bet we were screaming Goooooooo Dawgs! Sick em’!

What do you wear to a Football Game in Georgia?

That’s a great question. At UGA, we found two types of gals. Those that were dressed in jerseys and those that were dressed up. We liked the idea of keeping it easy and wearing jerseys, but we loved the idea of dressing up head to toe in Mud Pie! Now one thing you have to understand about the weather in Georgia, is that one weekend it will be 100 degrees and the next it will be 55 degrees, so you have to pack accordingly. We put together an outfit you could wear during the day to tailgate and then throw a layer over at night when you head to the game.

We received so many compliments on our outfit from fans of all ages! The Tripp made a great layering piece, the Iverson helped the outfit stay fun and flirty, the Ruana kept us warm once the sun went down and the accessories added that little extra something we needed. We brought along the Georgina to throw over the Tripp just in case the temperature dropped fast. Mud Pie has a lot of red and black, but we also have MANY other colors. Gray, maroon, olive, navy, tan, white, cream, silver and even fun prints! There is a piece for every fashionable football fan. You can join us in #FallingForMP at your football game by shopping all of our styles at Mudpie.com. Which Mud Pie items would you purchase to go to a football game?

5 Things We’ve Been Loving Lately

September 15, 2017
5 Things Header

Can you believe it is already the middle of September? I know we say this a lot, but where did the time go? Fall is coming fast, but you won’t find us complaining! That means layers, pumpkin spice everything and decorating for holidays! As the seasons begin to change, we are absolutely ‘Fall’ing in love with our new Fall 2017 pieces. Here are 5 things we’ve been absolutely loving lately.

5 Things We’ve Been Loving Lately:

5 Things We've Been Loving Lately: Iverson Suede Skirt

Suede is in style this season, so naturally we are crushing on suede everything. The Iverson Suede Skirts go great with leggings, tights, or bare legged. Wear out with friends, on game days, or date nights with the boo thang. (Warning: super comfortable material that may make you want to wear it all the time)

5 Things We've Been Loving Lately: Terracotta Pumpkin Coffee Mug

Fall means pumpkin everything, right? Even when it comes down to what you put your pumpkin spike latte in. We can’t get enough of these Terracotta Pumpkin Coffee Mugs that come in both green and orange. From coffee, to soup, to hot cocoa, we will be using these mugs all season long.

5 Things We've Been Loving Lately: Decorative Witch Broom Stick

Time to take out those bins tucked away in storage and break out the holiday decorations. But this year, we think you need a few new decor goodies. First up, Halloween! These Decorative Witch Broom Sticks  feature birch handle and bound raffia bristles. The broom is available with three different linen sayings: “Can’t fly with the big girls? Stay off the Broom,” “If the broom fits Ride it” or”Broom Parking violators will be toad.” Time to win ‘Best Decorated House’ in the neighborhood!

5 Things We've Been Loving Lately: Puppy Applique Tunic & Legging Set

Okay, we may be just a tad bit biased, but our Baby & Kids line is cuter than ever! Starting with this Puppy Applique Tunic & Legging Set for your little princess. It’s a great piece for Fall or Winter. With a light weight velour long sleeve tunic and cotton spandex leggings, your sweet girl will want to wear this every day.

5 Things We've Been Loving Lately: Go Wild Giraffe Two Piece Set

Wild and crazy! This Go Wild Giraffe Two Piece Set comes in newborn size up to 12 months. This season, we are stocking up on this set to give as baby shower gifts to friends that are expecting!

Hey fashion gurus, happy Monday! We hope your weekend was filled with fun activities in the sun and family time.
