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

Fun Spring Hostess Gifts Under $20


Spring is here, and with it, spring entertaining!:) Regulars here know my stance on hostess gifts - you never show up to someone's home empty-handed. They put in time and effort (and cost) to host you for brunch or dinner. The least you can do is bring a little something. It doesn't have to be expensive. Something between $10 and $20 is perfectly acceptable, and I'd say unless you're brunching with Martha Stewart, it's appropriate to keep it under $30 or so.

For a hostess gift anytime of year, you could bring something yummy, like chocolates or wine. If you go that route, my rule of thumb is to bring something in addition to whatever you're contributing to the meal. A hostess gift should be just that - a gift for the hostess! Fresh flowers are also lovely, though I love to bring things the hostess can use over and over for entertaining. For the perfect spring-themed hostess gift, you may be tempted to get something floral-themed. Think just a little bit outside of the box with something fun and colorful. Here are some of my top picks for spring hostess gifts under $20, starting with the adorable ceramic berry basket pictured above.

2. Now Designs Bamboo Utensils, Set of 5 - $14.99


3. Paperproducts Design 20-Pack Make your Own Damn Dinner Paper Cocktail Napkins  /  Paperproducts Design 20-Pack Ta-DAA Paper Cocktail Napkins - $6.87
