Hosting Halloween: Witchy Treat Table

Happy Halloween, my spooky friends! I hope you have a scary film playing in the background, Jack o’ Lanterns lit, because the hours are counting down until the Trick-or-Treaters come knocking on your door.

To finish off my Hosting Halloween series, I’ve put together a table that really gives me the heebie-jeebies. Nothing creeps me out more than a deep and dark forest. Haunted woods always make me think there is a coven of witches taking refuge in the dense, dead trees. EEK!

Hosting Halloween: Spooky Dinner Setting

Velcome, to the second installment of my Hosting Halloween series where I take you through spooky dinner setting ideas! I hope you enjoyed my first post and are excited to see what other tricks I have in store for you.

This is my go-to Halloween table setting, and I often refer to it as a vintage Halloween setting. It uses stark blacks, bright oranges and mellow greens, which always put me in the mind of a 1950’s Halloween party.

Hosting Halloween: Halloween Brunch

It’s that time of year again, friends, and if you thought that you could get this far into October without me going a bit overboard, then you have no idea who you are messing with! We are halfway through the most glorious time of the year (the 31 day celebration of Halloween), and it’s time to get some serious spook on.

This year, I’ve decided to take on Halloween from a hostess’ point of view, and I’m going to give you a couple of different suggestions on how to make the most of your scare-tastic celebrations. I’m calling this series Hosting Halloween, and it’ll have ideas on decorating schemes, drinks, activities, and of course, treats. So let’s get started with some brunch!

Independence Day Party Inspiration

Happy Fourth, y’all! For some reason, there’s nothing that gets my husband’s party bug more wound up than Independence Day. For the last several years, he’s invited over our friends, fired up the grill, and spent way too much money on fireworks. This year, we had an added bonus of a freshly installed fire pit (let me know if you all want to know how we built it!).

Since the Fourth of July is really a holiday made for the grill (an area that I have not mastered yet), I put all of my creative energies into the spread, the drinks and our outfits. I don’t have much to offer you this year, but I do have a couple of knock out party appetizers and drinks, plus some outfit inspiration to get you in the spirit!

Milk Hot Chocolate on a Stick

I promised I would adapt (adapt being a strong word) this for milk hot chocolate, and I did!

It’s getting chillier around here. Well, as chilly as it can get in Kentucky in November. But I am already in the holiday spirit of things.
