Behind the sets: Christmas Coziness

Usually by this time of year I'm so sick of Christmas because I've been working on Holiday sets and ad campaigns since July.  But this year I've only decorated one tree.  It was for a commercial I designed back in September.  I designed this whole cozy living room --
I kind of wish I could curl up right now next to that fireplace on that oh so soft rug. 
Too bad it's all fake and built on a sound stage.   This is how it looked first thing in the morning:

Best Birthday Cake EVER!!!

Last night I went to a "My friend is on a Reality TV show Party" (oh and incidentally, I live in Los Angeles, so this is not my first party of that sort).  But this viewing was special because my friend happens to be a cake designer and she was competing on a show called "Sugar Dome" -- a competition show on the Food Network where the best cake wins.  She had promised us all that there would most definitely be cake at this party.  woohoo!

But imagine my surprise when I walked in and saw this glorious cake - ALL FOR ME!!!!
Yup, that's right, she made me my very own Salad cake.  And luckily I hadn't even had my salad today yet! And like the sign says, it's a "Salad Cake" so it totally counts!!!

21 more days of Salad for 2012 --- But this is officially the very best one!
