Live from GMA! + Thoughts on “Putting Yourself Out There”


Hello from the Big Apple! I did a segment on Good Morning America Live this morning, which is basically the after show that streams live online right after the broadcast. You can watch it right here!

We talked about TV Viewing Party ideas for 3 popular shows that are just coming back for fall: Dancing with the Stars, Scandal, and Modern Family. There’s lots of fun stuff to check out – from sparkly costume-inspired decorating ideas and “Scandal-icious” treats to a (humorous!) Modern Family inspired photo station. There wasn’t time to touch on every idea – including one of my personal favorites – the tray of “Gloria’s Baby Cheeses” inspired by this episode of Modern Family – so I might try to post a few more of the specifics later – but in the meantime you can download the free printables we designed for all 3 shows here and here. :) (more…)

Wendy’s & HWTM Ultimate Premiere Party for Professional Dancer Cheryl Burke! {Event Recap}

utensils with washi tape, DIY cake stand, and DIY TV Centerpiece

Last Monday was definitely not my average start to the week…this one was filled with sequins, sparkle, washi tape, free printables, camera flashes, and all kinds of YUM! ;)

What could bring about all this fun stuff on a Monday night, you ask? Well…… I had a blast styling the Wendy’s® Ultimate Premiere Party for pro dancer Cheryl Burke up in LA that evening! We celebrated the return of 2 favorites: fall television and Wendy’s Flatbread Grilled Chicken Sandwiches, which are back on the menu for a limited time.

Viewing party guests – which included HWTM readers (yay!) and lots of great media attendees – watched the Season 17 premiere of Cheryl’s show while it aired (hence all the sequins & sparkle!) – and Cheryl came by to watch the episode with us. It’s not everyday that you watch a show WITH one if its stars in the room, right?!

Cheryl Burke & Jenn Sbranti


My role at the Premiere Party was to style the atmosphere and share some easy ways that anyone can take their own TV parties to the next level, without a ton of effort or expense. And YES – it really is possible to weave a healthy dose of playfulness and style into your get-together without totally stressing yourself out.

For example, instead of spending hours cooking & cleaning in the kitchen before the party, just pick up some quick, accessible options to serve your guests – like the Wendy’s Flatbread Grilled Chicken Sandwiches that we dined on at this party – then give them a quick “costume change” with cute little food picks and festive serving trays. Done!

I’ve eaten quite a few of both flavors of these tasty sandwiches over the past couple weeks (figured it was part of my “research” for the party!) and am a big fan of the multigrain flatbread they come wrapped in… it’s toasted but still just the right amount of soft. I’m sure my own viewing party friends will gobble them up too, especially when they learn that the sweet & savory Smoky Honey Mustard Flatbread has only 370 calories. You know what that means… pass the dessert! ;)

Wendy's Flatbread Grilled Chicken Sandwiches


Although I showcased several different ideas at this event, it’s important for me to note that you do NOT need to do all of them! Just 1 or 2 quick party DIY tricks will turn any everyday get-together into a unique & more memorable experience for your guests. Maybe it’s the sparkly food picks and embellished trays that you like – or maybe the semi-circle party garlands and paper table runners are more up your alley. The point is that life is too short not to weave in a little extra fun here and there – and when it comes to parties – there are lots of fun things that can be done in seconds flat! Speaking which, check out the Wendy’s #6SecondsFlat Sweepstakes where you can share your thoughts about Wendy’s Flatbread Grilled Chicken sandwiches for a chance to win $6,000!

Read on to check out pics from the party + a recap of all the different tips…

HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Washi tape, washi tape EVERYWHERE! Utensils, trays, cups, paper cones, & more…
– Easy gold dipped feather garlands inspired by costumes from Cheryl’s show
– DIY “TV” Centerpieces made from $1 frames + Free Printable sign inserts
– Show inspired phrases woven throughout the decor. i.e. “CHANNEL your inner disco queen”
