Mad about Plaid

One of the trends this season that has me OBSESSED with is one that has filled my closet for the past 10 or more years.  Plaid.  The reason it’s one of my favorites is because you really can wear it year-round, and you can dress up or down with it.  It’s fun to mix and match different outfits that include plaid, whether it’s the main piece or an added accessory.  Here are a few of my favorites, in a wide variety of price ranges:





Fiesta Friday: Fall & Halloween Décor

I absolutely love fall.  It combines so many great things: pumpkins, fall weather, jackets, boots, tailgating, football, and Halloween.  It’s hard to be unhappy about anything when you walk outside in the fall.  I think the Midwest has the best fall weather, but out East is pretty amazing as well.

To bring fall inside, I’ve decorated my kitchen table in some fun Halloween crafts.  They’re so simple and make the entire house a little more fun.  Here are my ideas for your next party: a Halloween theme.  I’m having some girls over next weekend for a BOOs and BOOZE party, but I wanted to get a head start on my place.  Here’s a look at what I did:

Sparkly Skull Head and Spooky Sign

Candy Corn filled Vase

Creepy “Fingers” with Sugar Cookies, Almonds and Cinnamon

Spider Web Placemat (Elmers glue on wax paper covered with glitter)

DIY Pumpkins with Paint and Glitter

Caramel Apples dipped in nuts
