25 Halloween Costumes w/Your LBD

The easiest way to create a last-minute or inexpensive Halloween costume is to start with things you already have. I do it every year, because I get so frustrated with how expensive yet poorly-made most Halloween costumes are. I'd rather use what is already in my closet, or spend a little extra on accessories or a new dress that I can wear anytime of the year. A little black dress is the easiest way to use what you have to create a Halloween costume with a few inexpensive accessories and other accessories you probably already have in your closet.Pictured Above: Halloween Black Mesh Dress

Pretty Ways to Use Plaid on Your Holiday Table

I like to use red plaid that can easily transition from Thanksgiving to Christmas. If you already have plenty of holiday linens in solid colors, you can mix in a bit of plaid with a tartan place setting. I love these tartan plaid mugs.

If you have trouble finding the right kind of plaid table linens, take a peek in the clothing section. I love to use scarves instead of table runners. They're just the right size and come in so many different prints this time of year.
