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

Little Yellow Dresses and What to Wear Them With


You guys really loved my "Little Pink Dresses and How to Wear Them" post a few years back. See the "Reader Favorites" on the right? It's been at the top for over a year and continues to be one of my most viewed posts nearly every day. I posted a few more times since then on that gorgeous dark shade of pink everyone seems to love so much, including me. Though recently I've been a little obsessed with bright yellow dresses. It isn't a color I typically wear. Come to think of it, I didn't own a single yellow piece of clothing until this summer. I just bought a bright yellow fit-and-flare slip dress from Old Navy. I can't wait for an occasion to wear it. It's the Old Navy Women's Poplin Sundress, which isn't available online in yellow anymore, but is still available in other colors and a few prints. You can check your local store if you want it in yellow.

Yellow is one of those colors anyone can wear, no matter what your skin type is. You just have to find the right shade for you. Paler-skinned gals should go for a warm butter yellow, like the dress in the middle pictured above, or a soft pastel yellow. Dark and olive-toned ladies like me can go bold with a bright cheery yellow or a neon yellow. I prefer the neon almost-lime yellow.

If you're not quite sure about wearing such a bold color, you can try one that has some texture or print to break up the color. If you're concerned about finding a yellow that will transition into fall, go for a mustard yellow. Here are some more of my favorites below. The pale-yellow chiffon cocktail dresses are available at Target and would be perfect if you're on the hunt for some knee-length yellow bridesmaid dresses.

There are two simple ways to style a yellow cocktail dress. If you're wearing a neon and modern-shaped silhouette, like the bright shift dress on the top left or a yellow skater dress; go for sleek or strappy black dress sandals, silver jewelry, and a printed clutch. For the warm or pastel yellows; go for nude or tan dress sandals, a white clutch, and some sparkle.
