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



Hello! I hope you've all been doing well. We have been in the process of moving to Texas; including a few different hotels, a few drives back and forth to Tulsa, and some major apartment hunting by my husband. His hard work paid off very well, as we ended up in a beautiful luxury apartment.

We still have most of our things in storage, which my husband Ken did all by himself because of my back injury. I really couldn't have handled it without him.









Once we do get completely settled in, we know we'll totally love it here. There are two very nice pools with cabanas...cabanas each with a t.v. inside! They have several other outdoor areas, like a yoga lawn, a fire pit and grill area, and an outdoor community spot with picnic tables and pretty cafe lights. There are also two gyms and a wellness center with free fitness classes. And three days a week, they have a new food truck come to the community, one of which is Saturday brunch!

Our German Shepherd Emma has two dog parks here, which she could enjoy IF she ever learns to behave herself. (She barks nonstop at other dogs.)

Just across the street, Ken and I have a beautiful new walking trail (pictured above) with benches and a pretty pond with a fountain. Just as soon as the weather cools down a bit, we can have a picnic over there.😊

In addition to all of the perks outside our apartment, inside our new home...well, it's the prettiest place both Ken and I have lived I think our whole lives. Once we're done furnishing the place, I'd be happy to give you guys a home tour on the blog!

After driving around the area, Ken and I have seen that there are so many great places to shop and dine just in the immediate neighborhoods, in addition to Dallas. I look forward to exploring all of that with him and sharing it here on the blog. I hope you all have a great weekend!

  3. I cannot believe you are moving! Tulsa will miss you. Sounds like it's going to be wonderful for you though.
