Happy Thanksgiving

It’s been super quiet here as I haven’t really had time or thought to post anything new on the blog. It’s been a super rough few weeks with the passing of my beloved dog.

I did, however, want to pop in and wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving. Eat, drink and be merry~

Mini Pumpkin Sweets

So dang cute! You know I heart me some mini versions of things, so I squealed inside when I saw these mini-sweets on the spoon fork bacon blog. These adorable (and delicious sounding) sweets are from a Halloween party post, but I don’t see why they wouldn’t be just as appropriate for a Thanksgiving party.

Recipes here.

Halloween Ideas: Part IV

Ok, just kidding. Here are a few more ideas that I recently found. 🙂

 

BURNING PUMPKINS

{via Apartment Therapy}

 

Such a clever use of pumpkins! Carve them to create flames in your fireplace. Not so down with the actual flame candles placed around them, though.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SANDWITCHES

{via Lisa Storms}

 

Puhaha! So funny I had to share. Little witches legs stuck in the sandwiches. Super cute.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HALLOWEEN TABLESCAPES

{via Etsy}

 

A Halloween tablescape inspiration image from Etsy. I like the ideas for adding punches of color and decoration by incorporating things that are actually orange/black (vs. buying/making/coloring decor & edibles).

And another from Hostess {with the Mostess}. That is such a cute banner and the random blackbirds are a cute touch.

Halloween Ideas: Part III

More ideas for gettin’ your Halloween craft/bake on.

 

TICKLE GHOSTS

{via Miner Moments}

This is pretty funny and very clever. If you have kids, this would be such a cute project. Heck, as long as you have feet, this would be a fun project!

 

 

DING DONG THE WITCH IS DEAD

{via Oh So Beautiful Paper}

 

Unfortunately, this one is not a freebie, but I thought the idea was so great, I wanted to post it. If you can manage it, this would be an AWESOME topper for your cupcakes or other sweet treats.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BEWITCHED BROOMSTICKS

{via Hostess (with the Mostess)}

 

Agghh. How cute!! DIY for making these cute little broomsticks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BLACK VELVET WHOOPIE PIES

{via i am baker}

 

These are pretty. And look so rich and decadent. Would be great for a party. You could probably play with the food colorings and make them more fun for a kids party (think slime).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think this is the end of my Halloween inspiration series, though I might end up putting up a few more Halloween-y posts. Hope you liked these ideas!
