Candy Corn Cupcakes

I love this sweet and super easy idea!
Candy Corn Cupcakes!
Just seperate your cake mix into 2 bowls.
Add a few drops of orange food coloring to one
Add a few drops of yellow in the other!
Drop half of the yellow in the pan first
top the yellow with the orange batter
Bake and let cool
Top with white frosting...

So cute...

Tricks and Treats

Here are a couple of Tricks and Treats
I have done in the past.

The first is a fun decoration to
hang from your trees Halloween night!

All you need is:
White Balloons
Glow sticks
Black Marker

Activate your glow stick first
(small bracelets work well)
Place the glow stick in the balloon
Inflate and knot the balloon
Position the knot at the top
Draw a face on the balloon
Drape the cheesecloth over the balloon
Cut a small hole and push the knot through
Secure with a string and hang in the trees
These look so cool blowing in the wind

The second is a treat!

Candycorn Marshmallows

All you need is
Lollipop sticks
Yellow Chocolate
Orange Chocolate

Cut the marshmallows into triangles
Insert a lollipop stick
Dip in the Yellow Chocolate
Let dry

Dip in the Orange Chocolate
Let dry

And there you have it!
Candycorn on a stick!

I imagine the smile on my daughters face

a sweet note from mom.

I know she is probably a little tired
of getting the same ol' same ol' notes
each week.
So, I was so excited to find these
very cute Halloween note downloads from

Are these great or what?

Chic Princess and the Frog

I love it when you can take a character theme
party and turn it into an ultra chic and fun
theme without all of that Disney stuff!
Don't get me wrong....
I love Disney!
My kids love Disney!
But, they can keep their
plates, napkins and cups...
no offense.
This party was styled by Krista Salmon
for her daughters 5th birthday.
Theme was Princess and the Frog.
Look at all of the lovely details!
So pretty!
Pretty enough for a wedding...don't you think?
Amazing lily pad cake...
Cooking theme carried throughout....
Goody bags with initialed aprons,
Tiana's, cookbook, and frog cookie cutters!
Check out all of the resources and many more details

Ghouls Night In

This past weekend I hosted a
Ghouls Night In Pokeno Party!

We enjoyed a night with tricks
and plenty of treats...
and NO kids anywhere! girls nights!

Here are the details from the party!
My inspiration definitely came from
Party printables found here!
Kim has 2 Fabulous styles to choose from and
they are both great!
I started with a few accents
to set the mood....

Boot tag read:
You say "Witch" like that's a bad thing...
Love it!

Moving on to the drinks...
at the Boo Doo Lounge!

Sangria Margaritas
Purple Rock Candy Cocktail Stirrer
and drink markers
Accented with a Tomkat Printable.

I was looking for a coffin to serve the drinks in but,
can you believe I couldn't find a small one!!!
I decided to make my own out of black paper.
Tutorial to come soon!

Tag for the coffin read:
"Dying for a Drink"
And I was!
The dessert table was accented with
lots of black and purple!

Cake Pops Stand!
My favorite accent!
My wonderful mom found this
pumpkin stand at Cracker Barrel
and I thought it would make a perfect
dessert display!

More sweets from the table...

Hope you can host your own "Ghouls" Night Out too!
Happy Haunting!

Pin it!
