(Easy) Halloween Tabletop Decorating

26 Oct

Halloween is just a few days away!  Have you decorated yet?  Or do you wait until the last minute?  I have a few cute (and easy) ideas to help you decorate a tabletop in no time and be ready for trick-or-treaters and guests if you’re having a get together.

To make this entryway table sPoOkY for Halloween, I used a frame I already had.  I bought a sheet of Halloween window clings (you can find at most party stores), and put it on the glass of the frame.  Easy and effective!  I added some “bones” I found at my local dollar store for added effect.

I also added some LED pumpkins that add a fun effect at night when lit up.  The glittery sign can be purchased at a store like Hobby Lobby.  Of course, I added some personalized napkins from The Stationery Studio for the beverages and food.  This tabletop display is set-up for an adult drinking area for my get together.  But this can easily be set-up for a kids party.  You can add some Halloween punch with dry ice for a fun effect.  This is also a great idea for your entryway table where you set-up for your trick-or-treaters on Halloween.

Share your Halloween decorating ideas!  We’d love to hear what easy and fun ways you decorate.

Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

28 Sep

It’s finally Fall and to me, that means a lot of pumpkin spice overload.  I am truly a sucker for pumpkin spice anything!  I don’t think I am the only one, either.  Walking into my local grocery store I am bombarded with all kinds of products jumping on the pumpkin spice trend from Cheerios to pop-tarts!

While you can always visit your local Starbucks for a Pumpkin Spice Latte, I have a homemade version that’s really delicious.  If you’re having people over to carve pumpkins or love to host a Halloween trick-or-treat gathering, you should whip up this great recipe for your guests.  I love adding our personalized napkins as your guests can take them home to make their own Pumpkin Spice Lattes!  Our “A Lot of Text” Napkins are really perfect for any party where you can share recipes from cocktails to your famous chili recipe.  I think they’re perfect for holiday cocktail parties and make great conversation starters, too.
