 Pumpkin Décor- 3 Ways

October is here and it’s time to start sprucing up those dorm rooms and apartments with Halloween décor. Pumpkins are on every street corner whether you’re in Manhattan or the Bronx, and prove to be an affordable way to celebrate fall. Try a chic approach with a cluster of mini white pumpkins, or get crafty by painting a pumpkin ombre and decking one out in glitter.

CMJ Music Festival

The CMJ Music Festival is a concert extravaganza held this Saturday, October 19 at various venues around the city. The vibrant festival has been known to “cut out the middle man” and bring the music industry (and film industry!) directly to its fans. This multi-media approach proves to be nothing short of sensational and provides an inside glimpse at up and coming bands and films.

Fall Brunch

If it’s a Saturday or Sunday between 12 and 4 pm, you’re most likely brunching. So why not take that brunch to the next level by adding some easy fall ingredients?  Apple cider mimosas and pumpkin donut holes are sure to be a hit and make your inner foodie feel festive.
