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. 🙂

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.

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

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.

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!

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.

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

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!
