Make these simple brown paper placemats for Thanksgiving dinner this year and have everyone read their list of things they’re grateful for before dinner! Don’t forget to set the scene; lighting candles brings warmth and adds that special something to holiday decor.
Everyone loves a little pumpkin around the holidays-make a special drink & enjoy with the family!
We’re loving this chic + casual Thanksgiving outfit. An oversized beanie would top this off nicely and a fitted leather jacket never goes out of style.
Don’t forget your camera to capture the memories. 1 picture says 1,000 words.
Amazing idea Alert!: Print your pictures, spray paint a piece of wood black and cut the picture to match the size of the wood. Using Mod podge coat the wood then lay the picture on top. Once it has dried thoroughly, use sandpaper to rough up the edges, then put a layer of mod podge over the picture. paint some eye hooks and use pretty ribbon as a hanger and voila; your memories are saved in a super cute original way.

The Active Center for Health and Wellness got a chance to make an even bigger difference recently, when they sponsored a glamorous fundraiser for the Xperience Outreach Foundation. Xperience is a youth focused organization that aims to provide inner city children inspiration and encouragement through mentoring, coaching and the sharing of life-changing experiences by some of sport’s most celebrated athletes. Graciously hosted by the beautiful Joumana Kidd and superstar athletes Alan Houston and David Tyree, the evening sported both silent and traditional auctions, music was provided by WKTU’s Paul “Cubby” Bryant, wonderful food and drinks with a dedicated mixologist to boot, and decor by none other than Dina Manzo. Overall, the night was a resounding success with all proceeds from the auctions benefiting the foundation.
It’s been a very interesting week here around the HIP office: we’ve been busier than ever and despite the summer heat our AC has been freezing us out! But why bore you with work. Here are the real interesting tid-bits from this week in case you missed them.
BE! (Beauty Entertainment) Magazine got a glimpse of Laboratory Hair Studio owner Mark Kuzma bringing his “Mad Scientist” flare to his styling work.
The ever glamourous Dina Manzo is gearing up for the launch of her new HGTV show “Dina’s Party” which begins airing in September. The Star-Ledger recently sat down with her to pick her brain. On Monday August 15th, right after an episode of “Design Star,” a preview of Dina’s new show will air. Go set your DVR’s!

What a night, what a night! The Hip Event was out in style last night for the delivery of the very first 2012 Bentley Continental GT in America!!!
Hosted in Atlantic Aviaiton’s hanger on site at the Teterboro Airport, the new Bentley and a gorgeous classic Bentley were flanked by two sleek jets from XOJET. The showgirls from Caesars Atlantic City helped to give it even more dazzle.
Guests were treated to drinks courtesy of Double Cross Vodka and the soundscape was provided by DJ Shughes. To top it all off, the audience was addressed by our very own PR maven, Maria Cucciniello and Dan Daly of Paul Miller Bentley Parsippany before the splendid vehicle was unveiled for everyone by the enigmatic Christophe Georges, President and CCO of Bentley Motors, The Americas.
All in all, another amazing event! A special thank you to all those who made this event possible including the fantastically vivacious Hip Event Staff and Interns!
