'Tis the season for holiday entertaining, and with that comes the delightful (and sometimes daunting) task of whipping your house into shape. Between styling a gorgeous tablescape, prepping your guest bedroom, and freshening seasonal decor, the cost of being a good hostess can often come at a high price — literally. Save time and cash by shopping this list of covetable sale items ranging from dining room upgrades to cozy essentials.
According to The Real Estalker, Fox network cohost and contributor Kimberly Guilfoyle just listed her pretty prewar pad in the Upper East Side for $1.6 million. Glam details like Austrian crystal chandeliers (in every room!), doorknobs, and cabinet hardware give the space a feminine, palatial feel, but it's the small surprise details that give this listing extra allure. Perks include a tucked-away sleeping alcove that doubles as a home office, a mud room off the service entryway, a drybar with a mini fridge, a multitude of closets, and a built-in kitchen banquette. In addition to the impressive interiors, there's also an extra outdoor bonus: a gorgeous rooftop garden.

While I was touring the Sunset Smart Home, I was captivated by this lovely bouquet. If you're looking for an easy yet striking bouquet for your Fall or Thanksgiving table, this is a great example of how working with less can often produce major results. By sticking with a single color, this bouquet is a knockout. And for more of an autumnal punch, use a hue associated with Fall, such as orange, burgundy, or brown for your flowers.Love the look of this single-hued Fall bouquet? Rely on unusual choices such as protea, rose hips, and pyracantha to create a similar bouquet. Other orange favorites include tiger lilies, gerbera daisies, orange roses, and birds of paradise. For a burgundy bouquet, look to dahlias, helianthus, ranunculus, and coxcomb. For a brown bouquet, mix eucalyptus pods with monkey paw, curly willow, and brown calla lilies and chocolate sunflowers.
