Halloween Decor: Haunted Front Porch

Halloween rocked this year. The spooky spirits were flying high on our street and we had a great time. My sis, nephew, mom and dad came over to hang out and help create my haunted front porch. My sis and I rocked out our witch hats. We are both pretty much Halloween freaks.

I served vampire cupcakes to the neighborhood kids and they were a hit! Then I invited them to reach in and feel our brain and eyeball specimens.

I set the mood with cobwebs that wrapped the porch, candles and a thunder and lightening strobe-light and noise machine. One of the fun parts to having a boy at Halloween is they love gross stuff, so Walker thought it was cool and so did all of the boys in our neighborhood!

I'd say the whole evening was a success. Walker's candy bag was so full after about an hour of trick-or-treating that he handed it to me and asked me if I would carry it because it was so heavy!

Oh, and Mike and my dad were happy campers because they got to sit and watch football all night while we goofed around on the porch and played Halloween all night! Win win for all!

Until next year, my pretties!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
