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

Snapshots from the Week


Happy Friday! I am officially caught up on posting finally...getting back to having this snapshots post up before the weekend rather than after. Despite the post this Monday, I still had plenty of shots left from a lovely weekend date with my fiance.

We went to Utica Square for Art in the Square, where they had all sorts of art from local Tulsa artists displayed along the sidewalks.You can see more pics from that on the Tulsa Blog.


We enjoyed cider, not once but twice - first at Starbucks and then a sample at Williams Sonoma. As pricey as it is at Williams Sonoma, I have to say, we were both like daaaammnn, that's good cider, so it may actually be worth the extra cost.




There were lots of pretty fall pieces out to browse, and that fringed pillow...oh I need that!



Ken knows how much I love to look at Christmas decor, and he loves it too, so we stopped by the mall to see some of the new displays. I know, I know, it isn't even Thanksgiving yet...or Halloween. But it's still fun to look at all of the pretty holiday decor.

We both liked the same tree and ornaments the best. It was traditional red with a mix of glam and cozy pieces. The cork wreath ornament was on a wine-themed tree. There were even mini wine bottle and cheese-wedge ornaments on it. I wouldn't do that all over a tree myself, but we do want to make some of those ornament out of our growing cork collection.


Speaking of wine, we tried a new one this week. The Dancing Bull cabernet is pretty good. It has rich dark berry flavors and a hint of mocha. Though I've found that wines with a hint of mocha tend to weigh a bit heavy on my palette, as in the more I sip, the stronger the mocha gets until I can't really taste the fruit anymore. I'm thinking I would prefer this wine with some sweet chocolate instead of a savory dinner.


And new in wedding planning this week, in case you missed it one of the other hundred times I posted about it on Instagram and the wedding blog, my fiance and I received our very beautiful wedding invitations. Just yesterday I finished up with applying a wax seal to the inner envelopes and got them all addressed so I could get them off in the mail today.:)

And after I've finally gotten over this darn cold, and my fiance has gotten through a very tiring work week, we are very much ready for the weekend.:) You guys have a fun and relaxing weekend!
