Happy Trick or Treat!

Okay, not so much tricks around here- just treats!




This little frog witch is brewing up some sort of gruesome concoction for her Halloween Party.  The cauldron is cake with a fondant covering.  The frog is fondant and her brew is a combination of frosting and white Sixlet eyes with fondant eyeballs.  The flames are Fruit Roll-ups. 

Of course, around here no holiday is complete without cupcakes! These went to my husband's office.  They are presented here on my Nora Fleming platter.  I just love how I can change out the decoration for any occasion! 

I am trying to enjoy as much of this fall season outdoors as I possible can.  Last night my husband and I lit a little bonfire and roasted a few marshmallows with some family members. We also served the cauldron cake. 



Soft drinks were served on the deck in this cute pumpkin bucket my cousin gave me.  



We served a special treat for the grown-ups as well.  I found this recipe on the Creative Culinary blog, but of course, I made a change or two. 





Bourbon and Apple Cider Cocktail

2 oz. chilled Apple Cider
1 oz. Bourbon
2 oz. chilled Ginger Ale
Apple Slices (or cherry) for garnish as desired. 

Combine the first two ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake until very cold. Strain the mixture into an ice filled glass and top with the chilled ginger ale. (Or pour into an ice filled glass with the ginger ale already in it.) Stir gently. Garnish with an apple slice or cherry and Enjoy! 

NOTE: The original recipe called for an apple slice, but we also tried a cherry garnish and really enjoyed that even more. 

And as a last minute Halloween treat (for me!), look what I found on clearance at Williams-Sonoma this morning! 


You can see a completed cake on their website here.  (It was even cheaper in the store!) I can't wait to use it next year! 

I hope you get lots of good treats tonight and Have a Happy and Safe Halloween! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Halloween Tablescape

I love polka-dots.  They make me happy. So does Halloween, beautiful fall weather and the fact that my oldest daughter is visiting.  With that in mind, I decided to enjoy a happy little Halloween dinner on the deck. It has been a long time since I posted a table scape and I want to share this simple little happy table.  



A couple of weeks ago, I grabbed up the remaining yardage of this polka dot fabric from Walmart, of all places.  I wish I had bought more when it first came out.  It is perfect for a Halloween tablecloth, quilting or a number of other projects I can think of.  



This candelabra came from Target. I had a difficult time finding Halloween taper candles, finally stumbling upon them at Michaels (for 50% off!).  Again, I should have shopped in August, there were more options available then, but I really like the orange with black stripes. (Somebody remind me next year!) I made the witch hat last year (you can see that on my Halloween Eve post here.) There was quite a breeze on…

Bee-Lated Again! (And a Free-Bee!)

You may remember that I promised to tell you about the party favors from my daughter's "Bee-lated Birthday". Not only was I late with her birthday party, but I am late with the promised post as well!  With the bee theme that we had for the party, and my new found fascination with making my own bath soap and sugar scrubs, I decided to make little bee-themed soaps as a party favor.  



I have shared with you a couple of times how easy it is to make your own "designer" soaps. For these, I got a bee soap mold, some goat's milk soap base and my new favorite Honey Almond soap scent.  I purchased all of these from Micheal's (don't forget your coupon!), but I am intrigued by some molds that I found on Amazon.  Be sure to shop around and find what makes you happy. 


They are simple to make- melt one pound of the soap base in the microwave according to package directions (30 seconds, stir: 30 seconds, stir, etc. until completely melted).  Add your favorite scent, …
