I’m pretty sure these simple Halloween balloons are my favorite decoration, ever!
I love, love, love when things are cute but super simple (have you noticed?). With limited time for crafting but the passion for all-things-adorable… it’s really important that I choose projects I have to time to actually accomplish. Friends, it really can’t get easier than this!
These Halloween balloons are so easy to make, the kids will love helping too! They can come up with unique faces for ghosts, pumpkins, and even silly monsters (purple and green balloons would be perfect for monster faces!).
You can make them for a Halloween party, or even to take to class. This would be a fun project to do with kids at school even. All you need are the balloons and a black sharpie. So easy!
If you’re having a Halloween party, let the kids create their own unique Halloween balloon as a party favor, or judge them in a contest!
How to make:
Blow up a balloon with helium and tie it with ribbon
Draw on your face using a black Sharpie
To make a bat balloon: Blow up a black balloon and tape on bat wings cut from black paper
I’ve never made hard candy before. To be honest, the idea of making any recipe that requires using a candy thermometer has scared me in the past. But, this Halloween I thought it was the perfect time to put my fears aside and give it a try. I’ve always wanted to make homemade lollipops so I decided to start there. After doing a bit of research, I discovered that the ingredients needed are super minimal. Like, two. TWO. That’s simple enough for me! The base of my lollipop recipe requires only two things; sugar and corn syrup. I added in food coloring and candy eyeballs (for the spook factor). I used Sugar In The Raw Organic White® which is unbleached and true to its natural color (like the original Sugar In The Raw®), but its finer crystals make it perfect for cooking and baking because it blends easily into any recipe. This was key for making our green lollipops!
Need to whip up some halloween cupcakes in a hurry? Last minute school party or neighborhood treats? These mini monster eye cupcakes are the perfect spooky treat (and they happen to be really, really simple to make!).
Looking for a cool, simple, inexpensive, Halloween idea? These DIY ghost candles are your ticket. DIY Halloween decorations cannot get easier than this. Really. I love something that takes me just minutes to make (well, in this case it’s seconds) and looks really unique.
I picked up these tall white candles for 50 cents each at the dollar store. You can find these almost everywhere (even the grocery store). Then, I simply drew different ghost faces on each candle with a black Sharpie. In about 10 seconds I had and the perfect DIY halloween decorations–ghosts! Sooooo simple! (and it only costs $3.00!)
This book themed baby shower is full of sweet details. I hope you enjoy them!
Baby showers are a special occasion. Baby shower honoring family? EXTRA special. Here’s a look at the book themed baby shower I hosted to help celebrate the arrival of a new baby niece; she’ll be here soon and we are over the moon about it!
The theme just sort of happened. The mom-to-be loves reading and knew she wanted to incorporate children’s books into the shower somehow. I know her personal style of romantic with a touch of vintage and just put it all together. Baby Love Story was born.
Who says you cannot have a lobster boil in a landlocked state? When event planner Morgan Wetherington (from Nashville, TN) reached out to share this Luxe Lobster Bash I was day dreaming of my own seafood soiree. My favorite elements are the lovely lobster water color paper items and the use of nautical rope. Take a look at the amazing photos:
Barbeque is the typical southern fare, but we opted for lobster for this upscale dinner party. For this New England inspired lobster boil, we used a color palate of cherry red, navy, and shades of cream. The La Tavola red rope linen was the perfect choice to include the theme. We incorporated nautical rope, starfish, and of course lobster. The client’s home provided an ideal outdoor space for the venue. We wanted to create a guest experience, everyone loved cracking lobster and flowing conversation.
