Spooky Halloween Party Tips

Honestly, I have never decorated my house much for Halloween. Don't get me wrong, I have always had a jack-o'-lantern on the front steps and maybe a few fake spider webs around the door, but I have never been into gory, graphic Halloween decorations. This year my daughter has motivated me to get into the spirit and host a small Halloween dinner party. While searching the web for spooky decorations and party ideas I became inspired by all of the creative people out there that can make Halloween eerie and mysterious without being overtly gory.

One of my favorite finds is definitely Love Manor's potion jar labels. I have decided to use these authentic looking labels on jars filled with colored liquids or oils and place them on my bookshelf. I also thought that these labels would look cute on a small glass jars filled with candy and used as a party favor.


To set the tone of the party, I plan to use Martha Stewart's template for mice silhouettes in the entry way. These creepy mice will definitely scare my guests when they walk up the stairs. If you don't have the time the cut out the mice, you can purchase the pre-cut silhouettes at marthastewart.com

Regarding the menu for my party, I plan to start off with creepy cocktails. To make these drinks, first rub the rim of the glass with lemon or lime juice, then dip the glass into black decorating sugar and finally add a black gummy spider. You can find the gummy spiders at Candy Warehouse.

For dessert, I plan to skip the tricks and give my guests a sweet treat. I absolutely LOVE the desserts from Fairytale Brownies. Their brownies are moist, chocolaty and delicious!! I am so excited for my guests to try them. As far as a the main entree, I am still trying to come up with a creative dish. I am playing around with the idea of vampire steaks (filets) with a red wine sauce. I am so glad that my daughter talked me into throwing a Halloween party because I have had so much fun planning it!

Confession



I have a confession to make. I like to keep everything in my house fairly organized. In fact, some might say I am a bit anal about clutter. That's why it kills me every time I walk into the kitchen and see a big pile of unorganized recipes. For some reason I feel the need to scribble down recipes on little pieces of scrap paper and throw them into a pile. But today everything is going to change! I was so excited to see free printable recipes cards on Skip To My Lou this morning that I ran out and bought a pack of cardstock so I could get started right away. What I love about this recipe card maker is that you get to customize the appearance of the cards and enter the recipe on the computer so all you have to do is print them out and marvel at your work. Plus, these cards are going to be great for sharing recipes with friends! Thank you Skip To My Lou!

Valentine's Day Card Idea

This Saturday I will be cutting out 23 pink butterflies. Why you ask? Valentine's Day of course! I found this cute, easy butterfly Valentines card for my daughter to hand out to her classmates. We plan to write her name on one side of the wings and the recipients name on the other. I think that handmade Valentines are so sweet and personal and are always more meaningful than store bought cards. To download the template and instructions for this project, visit Skip To My Lou.

Cupcake Bouquet

Today I discovered the coolest thing... cupcake bouquets! These cute edible bouquets would be perfect for a baby shower or bridal shower centerpiece. First, find a Styrofoam ball that fits your flower pot and decorate the pot with ribbons, bows, tulle or any accessory that would be appropriate. Then, frost your cupcakes to resemble flowers (the top half of an oreo or cookie crumbs can be used for the sunflower center). Finally, attach the decorated cupcakes to the Styrofoam ball with toothpicks or popsicle sticks. For great step-by-step instructions, visit Baa Baa, Cupcake, Have You Any Frosting? by clicking here.

Postive Message For Kids

{photo credit: ModEco Kids}

I was recently browsing around ModEco Kids, a wonderful website for eco-friendly kid's things, and came across this chore chart. I absolutely love the modern feel and the top phrase that says, "This is how I contribute to my family." What a wonderful positive message to send to children. I only wish that I had seen this chart last December, when I searched all over the planet for a cool chore chart!

Perfectly Elegant!


Isn't this brooch elegant? It's made from layers of silver, sage green and cream silk organza and satin. I absolutely love the glass beads in the center because every girl needs a little bling. The creator of this brooch, SewBrookie, was smart enough to attach the "flower" to a clip that can be used in your hair, on your purse or even on a sweater. Just think how this accessory could dress up a plain black coat. Now guess the price? $35? $40? Nope, just $18! I think that's a great price for such a versatile handmade piece.

Besides brooches, SewBrookie also offers handbags from beautiful patterned fabrics. To check out all the cool stuff she has to offer, visit her Etsy site at http://www.etsy.com/shop/SewBrookie
