{halloween snack mix}

Halloween is 23 days away. Bay just decided today that she wants to be a bumble bee. So now I frantically try to find her the perfect bumble bee costume….that she actually likes. Say a little prayer for me, K?

And you know by now that I’m a complete Holiday Whore…ha! Sounds so bad. lol. Any excuse to make something fun + festive. I’m here for it. Pumpkin shaped everything. Ghosts + spiders. I’m on it!

Some good ones from the archives:

  • Remember the {pumpkin donut holes} They are not only crazy easy, they’re crazy good!
  • The {mini pumpkin pies} I’ve been making for years. They are the perfect individual sized dessert for those of us (my hand is raised) that have absolutely NO control when it comes to pumpkin pie.
  • {pumpkin snickerdoodles} a spin on GG’s (my grandmother) classic cookie.
  • Back in 2016, I shared {pumpkin muffins} and I need to put these on my to-make list to re photograph them!
  • Last years I busted out the {spider cupcakes} for our annual trick-or-treating night at the Nelson’s
  • And last but not least, {pumpkin spice creamer} inspired by my girlfriend Justine!

This year, I’d like to introduce you to a dangerously delicious snack mix.

{DIY pumpkin centerpiece}

Wood Pumpkin Serve Board (on sale) | 9″ Pumpkin Halloween Décor Cream | Orange Berry Stem | Light Up Skull (similar) | Candle: Chloe & Co Golden Moss

The Faux Pumpkin Centerpiece DIY was born last week. I typically stick with the real deal when it comes to pumpkins. I just love real pumpkins. The colors. The textures. I legit cannot get enough…Ha! But, if you remember from last year, I had a little mishaps with the REAL pumpkin centerpiece. Although it was fucking gorgeous, it almost ruined my life.

Okay, I may be exaggerating a little bit.

It rotted out. I picked it up to move it and the whole pumpkin melted in my hands. All over my carpet + dining room table. The smell that came off that thing could probably kill some kind of small animal. It was horrific. Ha! I shared a photo of it below for old times sake.
