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

5 Essentials for Chic Outdoor Entertaining


Whether you enjoy grilling by the pool or a casual evening roasting marshmallows around a fire pit, it's the perfect time to take your entertaining outdoors. Here are some great patio finds to get you inspired for your outdoor parties this season. Pictured Above >

1. Outdoor Seating - I'd love a beautiful outdoor dining set for summer dinner parties, (pictured below) but for lounging, I also love the idea of an outdoor loveseat with a coffee table and side chairs, if you have a large patio space of course. For poolside seating, try some wicker chaise lounge chairs.

2. Hanging Lights - For outdoor entertaining at night, string lights make everything so much more beautiful. I love how so many of the local restaurant patios in Tulsa decorate with cafe lights. You can string them up between tree or under a patio cover. If you have a yard but not a clearly defined entertaining area, you can use these lights to define a space where you want to entertain. Pictured: weatherproof globe string lights. Candle light is so pretty for outdoor entertaining as well. Try some big lantern candle holders to add to the decor of your patio.

3. Cold Drinks - You have to keep the cold drinks coming when you're entertaining outdoors. And while yes, a cooler full of beers would suffice, you can take it up a notch with a pretty pitcher full of sangria or something like a fruit-infused tea or lemonade.

4. A Place in the Shade - I don't know how it is where you live, but I live in Oklahoma, and when it's hot, it's hot! And when the skies are clear, there isn't a cloud in sight and the sun beats down hard. Shade is a must for keeping cool. If you don't have a covered patio, try a large umbrella.

5. Fun Serving Ware - From cute disposable products to colorful place settings and large serving dishes, you can add so much color and extra decor to your outdoor space. These mason jar glasses are perfect for serving summer drinks.
