Hello new week!
Halloween is just around the corner, friends. I have my tree ready, the costumes are ready (1 statue of liberty, 1 Dorothy and 1 firefighter!) and tomorrow I am going to decorate our main entrance. That leaves me with a couple of weeks to come up with some edible Halloween treats and perhaps one more project… I found all these lovely ideas in the latest issue of Country Living. I am saying YES! to all of them!
I am so trying these silhouette cupcakes (the silhouettes are done with rubber stamps and black food coloring pressed onto “fondants”).
Not for this year, but a collection of b/w plates as a back drop for a Halloween table would be fun to have. And these mini brooms as place card holders can be made without too much effort.
I am seriously contemplating making these ghosts to hang in the large drum chandelier over our kitchen table. They are made out of cheesecloth, soaked in fabric stiffener, and draped over small balloons (once dry, the balloons are popped). Aren’t they so friendly and cute!
A great way to decorate pumpkins, if carving is too intimidating, is to use stencils with black paint/marker.
Both decorative and tasty – roasted pumpkin seeds (perhaps seasoned with a salty blend).
