Easy DIY Halloween Party Favors

There are so many cute Halloween party favor ideas floating about the web, like the witch's broom goodie bags for example, though they do require some DIY experience. These tin-tie bakery bags are the perfect size for a Halloween goodie bag, and they require no crafting skills. I love howthe favor bags I made them with are cute enough for kids but still nice enough for the grown-ups as well. All you need are the bakery bags, ribbon, and 3D Halloween stickers from the craft store. You can use the smaller bag pictured above or a larger bakery bag with a window display. I like to fill the larger ones with treats to give out as holiday presents to neighbors and teachers.



Simply fill the bags with a Halloween treat (homemade or store-bought), close them up and tie them off with ribbon, then affix a sticker to each bag. These are food-grade bags, so they're perfect to fill with homemade fall treats like popcorn, kettle corn, or Halloween chocolates. Try my DIY gourmet popcorn

Tour of the Washington DC Monuments at Night

In keeping with my patriotic theme this week, I want to share more of my D.C. travel photos. This time I thought it would be cool to share ones I took at night. The National Mall has such a different feel at night when all of the lights are on. If you have already seen all of the monuments during the day and get to take another trip out to our nation's capitol, make sure you do some sightseeing at night!

A view of the Washington Monument from the WWII Memorial.


The elliptical pool surrounded by fountains, in the center of the WWII Memorial.


The Freedon Wall in the WWII Memorial. The wall contains 4,048 gold stars.
Each star represents 100 Americans who died in the war.
In front of the wall lies the message "Here we mark the price of freedom".


The Washington Monument. (It sure was foggy that night.)


Fifty flags, one to represent each state, surround the monument.


The Lincoln Memorial. Counting from the very bottom at the Reflecting Pool to the very top, there are 98 steps. If you go to this, you might be tempted to not walk up all of steps it takes to get inside. But it is worth seeing up close, not to mention the beautiful architecture and murals inside the memorial.

  3. Is it just my impression, or does the Lincoln Memorial have more of a power to it at night?
