BOO-tiful Halloween Ideas

Halloween is one of my favorite Holidays, but not for the reasons it used to be.  I used to love dressing up but now one of my favorite things about the holiday is hosting friends for a party (see last year’s post here) or this year celebrating at my office.  My coworker sent an AMAZING email about how we’ll be celebrating (it involves “Flashdance-style Trick or Treating,” which begins with the onset of “Thriller” being played.)

Here are a few ways I’ve kicked off this holiday so far this year:

On Sunday night, my brother, his girlfriend, my boyfriend, and I all went to Sleep No More.  If you haven't been, you should go. Now.

A friend of mine, Maggie, hosted our girlfriends for some Pumpkin Carving.  She supplied snacks, including these Clementine and Celery Pumpkins!

Since it's Halloween, I figured I could get away with these "Spooky" nails at work for a day!

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
