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

Pantone 2015 Color of the Year - Marsala



Pantone, the leading authority in the color world has announced the 2015 color of the year - marsala. Inspired by Marsala red wine, the shade is rich and earthy. A departure from last year's radiant orchid, the 2015 official color is much more subdued. While it's a dark wine color, it's a muted brownish wine. I love it!

"Marsala is a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in to its embracing warmth." - Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute
Of course marsala works very well in fashion and beauty as well as home decor. You can pair it with either black or brown, and it goes beautifully with cool-tone colors like blue and purple.
