Sara and I had such an unbelievable time in NYC. Amazing. It was surreal and almost feels like it never happened. The day before Sara taped the show we were able to spend some time in the Martha Stewart TV craft room prepping some paper bag turkeys for her segment. Everyone there was so nice and we loved seeing all of the craft supplies, especially the dishes. There aren’t any pictures to show you, however, because cameras aren’t allowed. The next day (the day Sara taped the show) we arrived early and hung out at the TV studio. We saw some of the Martha Stewart offices, including Martha’s office, the prep kitchen, and the set. Sara says is was like being in a real life magazine. I was just trying to soak it all in.

After we were done we also found some time to go shopping at a few different places. Here are the highlights:

tinsel trading co. – vintage and new ribbons, trims, flowers, knickknacks, we wanted one of everything in here.
paper presentation – papers, stationary, craft supplies, everything you could think of.
moomah – cafe for the budding artist, kid’s parties and crafts, super cute decor, delicious smoothies.
kate’s paperie – papery goodness of every kind.
dean & deluca – sophisticated grocery store, my new favorite.
john derian co. – unique gifts and trinkets, unusual, expensive, and super cool (Martha was in there shopping two days earlier).
anthropologie – clothing & home, could the store displays be any more off the charts? How do they come up with this stuff?

Brittany, Martha Stewart, Sara, and Sara’s awesome sister Linda.

  1. How cool to be on MARTHA!!
    I loved your popcorn turkey and made it for my family. The kids were crazy for it! It may just become a family tradition. I also did the little corn goody bag. I posted it all on my blog.
    Thanks for the wonderful ideas!!!

  3. I wish I had made this paper bag turkey because it would have turned out better than our real one!

  6. Yay! I thought I’d missed seeing you on Martha being that we’re still down under, but no! I clicked over to it from this blog. You are truly charming. And everything you do is top notch and cuter than ever.

  8. Excellent, excellent job!! You are amazing! Did anything ever happen with that guy in the other room who was eating the popcorn turkey?

  9. I just found this blog recently… LOVE it! This was a cute segment… the guy diving into the popcorn in the background is hilariously distracting though. What was his deal?!

    Thanks for your wonderful blog. I made the cupcake garland with a “HAPPY HOLIDAYS” banner. It was a hit at a luncheon I hosted for photographer friends today.

  10. That guy in the background was Joey and he had been there throughout the whole episode, talking to the audience too. He later did a segment with Martha making a leftover turkey sandwich. He was pretty funny.

  1. […] tomorrow after the show if I can.I get so nervous being on TV–I’m not a natural like Sara is. So wish me luck. And if you get a chance, we’d still love your vote on Circle of Moms. […]
