Halloween at Our Home

Happy Halloween! Enjoy a little snippet of our fam, as we got dressed up last weekend for our church Fall Festival, our dry run for Halloween Night!  I can’t ever miss an opportunity for a fun family picture, so we got a few pictures  outside of our garage as we were heading out the door.

Halloween Bloody Brownies

It’s so fun to make Halloween treats for the kids, to get them all excited for the big day! Actually, it seems like a week of festivities with our church Fall Festival, the pre school library party, and then the 31st BIG DAY, I love that my kids get multiple chances to wear their costumes. Today I’m sharing a fun recipe for some Halloween Bloody Brownies. It’s really so simple, and just a fun way to enjoy halloween treats. With just a few ingredients, the red velvet cake mix is what makes the brownie red (and Betty Crocker was more red than Duncan Hines–just saying I tried both).

I’ve also thrown Halloween Couples parties in the past, and similar guidelines apply.  World Market asked me to share their fabulous Halloween section, which I’m happy to, because I’ve shopped at World Market in the past for my parties, and I knew how fabulous it is! (I’ve been compensated for this post, but all thoughts are 100% my own).… Continue Reading

Back to my sign.

I’d seen a few signs about candy, and wanted to go BIG. I discovered a super cute digital design shop on ETSY called digital field where I downloaded and printed the spider web letters and candy designs (below).  Check out all the other cute designs!

I hesitated using real candy corns for storage purposes, but really wanted the texture in a quick and easy way.  I sealed it with polyurethane and I’m crossing my fingers it keeps the bugs away! I loved the added texture.

Halloween Candy Sign

I used Mod Podge to seal the letters and candy design down, and my daughter helped me glue gun the candies to the board. It was a pretty quick and easy project, and it certainly BRIGHTENS up my porch!

What about my cute candy corn princess?
