If I am being honest, Christmas was always my favorite holiday. But one Halloween 14 years ago, I had the most perfect baby boy on Oct 31st! With Shane's birthday on this fun and spooky holiday, I have learned to love Halloween! It is so much fun to create memories with your kiddos. They grow up so fast, so embrace your inner spookiness and dive right in this Halloween!
We had a blast creating this tablescape. Note the balloon arch per Kaylyn's request! I have to admit, I becoming an addict to those as well. Balloon arch tips- be prepared to blow up a ton of balloons, get the balloon tape with glue dots! And FYI- 1 dot goes a long way! Those suckers are sticky! Link below for the ones we used.

We had also planned on having the cutest witches hats hanging from the ceiling in this photoshoot, but someone(Leane) forgot to bring them to Kaylyn's house and with a newborn and a 4 year old as our assistants the hats did not make the cut! There's always next year. Haha
A fun treat you can make with the kids are the Mummy pretzel rods shown. Get the larger pretzel rods, and the white chocolate candi quick. Melt to directions and dip each rod in the chocolate(use a tall skinny cup to hold the melted chocolate). We dipped them twice and then drizzled and added candy eyes to make the "mummy." Great snacks for lunchboxes!
We fell in love with our pink and orange ghost plates and cups! We will have them in the shop available for you to purchase! We also can not get enough of this charcuterie board! Custom made by a husband and wife team, it is a must have for your Halloween decor bin! We have them available for purchase too. Yep, we will totally have you hooked up this year for the cutest Halloween tablescape ever! *And in case you missed that organization tip- have a holiday bin for each holiday to safely store and organize your items.
We have always done cookie kits with the cookies baked and cut out and then royal icing for you guys to have fun with. We decided that we would mix it up a little this time and do these cute monster cookies! You get the cookie dough and you roll and squish(yes, squish) them out and bake with your family! While they bake, you can decorate those pumpkins! Once they come out, we have buttercream icing for you to decorate and create adorable and yummy monsters! Can't wait to share these with you and see pics of your memories!
This one was a fun one for Kaylyn and I to create! We hope you enjoy it and it inspires you to make this Halloween the spookiest ever!
Keep Life Sweet- Leane and Kaylyn
