Halloween is almost here and I am WAY excited!  It just gets more fun each year, the older my boys get.  Along with the crap load of candy that will be eaten, and HAS been eaten, lets not forget about those adorable Halloween themed treats.  Holidays should be filled with sugar, I stand firm on this.

I love this time of year sooooo much, and since fall is non existent in Southern California I have to get my fall fix elsewhere.  So, a few weeks ago we took our annual trip up to Oak Glen with our friends, it was still stinkin hot but oh so beautiful!  Apple cider, gorgeous pumpkin patches, a corn maze, fresh apple donuts and fall leaves... its my happy place.  This year Denny was big enough to pick and even enjoy some apples.  Rowe had a blast running around, climbing, touching and playing with everything.  And like every year, the boys left happy and FILTHY but that seems to be how they leave everything.

Halloween is just around the corner, but I'm still crafting.  When it comes to holidays, I just can't help myself.  And since I don't have a Halloween wreath I thought it was about time I make one.  This cute batty wreath is easy peasy, and only takes 15 min to make.

 I seriously have not been to a "grown up" Halloween party in a LONG time!  I feel like for the last 4 years, Halloween has been all about the kiddos, so it was fun to have just a girls night.  And if anyone knows me I jump on any excuse to dress up!  Merrick (my party throwing partner in crime) and I teamed up with MintedJo-ann fabric and craft and Caravan Shoppe to throw this Spooktacular Halloween dinner party, and we had a BLAST!

We had the BEST time brainstorming and decorating for this party!  And the party itself was amazing, I think we have come to the conclusion that this will be a yearly tradition.

I am on the tassel bandwagon.  Have been since it took off.  So naturally when a Halloween party was in the works with Merrick, my first thought was "where can I incorporate some tassels?" ha ha.  And then the tassel chandelier was born.  
Today we have teamed up with Jo-ann Fabric and Craft to share this simple and amazing project.  We were semi obsessed with how it turned out.   
Can't wait to share the rest of the PAR-TAY this week!

My favorite thing about this project is that it's customizable -- try different sizes of branches, different color yarn, or numbers of tassels to make your chandelier completely unique. Also, they're a gorgeous fixture for above your table, like we did for our party.  But you could also mount it above your fireplace, on your door in place of a wreath, or on your wall...sooooo many possibilities!

Do you have your Halloween garland up yet?  I decided to make a new one this year.  I love a good garland, it actually might be right up there with my love for chocolate, and that is saying a lot!!  This paper straw Halloween garland is simple, and very festive!  The best part is, that paper straws come in so many different colors and designs, you can change it up.

Yum yum to candy and fruit!  Candy apples are such a fall/ Halloween staple.  I do love a good candy apple, and for me, the more toppings the better.  Here are some fun and delicious looking ones to try for Halloween.
