Happy Halloween!

As a kid I loooooooooved Halloween and mostly because I loved dressing up! But isn't Halloween pretty uneventful from the time after you graduate college but before you have kids? I'm excited to someday have kids to do Halloween with.

So since I was hosting book club this week, I decided to do a little Halloween "theme". It was just a fun excuse to use a bunch of ideas on Pinterest.

The glitter skull was from the $2.50 bin at Target. The pumpkin cooler was really easy!! Just like carving a pumpkin. I used the mixer from my Kitchenaide for the bucket inside, it fit perfectly :)

Those are pumpkin beers in the pumpkin bucket! (And they are delicious.)

And for dinner we had a mummy calzone. I owe this all to my husband.. he made it for us. Have I mentioned I have the best husband ever!!



Almost too cute to eat! But we did.. and it was delicious! We served it with some tomato sauce on the side to spoon on.

Okay, so I tried to make the vampire cupcakes and it was pretty much a disaster. And unfortunately they didn't quite taste that great either... the bottoms were a little burned

"A" for effort??

Happy Halloween everyone!!

  1. Everything turned out so cute! I don't think the cupcakes look like a disaster at all. And I'm SO jealous that your husband has cooking skills! My husband can cook a frozen pizza but that's about the extent of his cooking knowledge :)

  8. I tried making those cupcakes last year. Instead of looking like cute vampire bites, they just looked like red splotches. Yours are definitely nicer than mine were.

    The vampire cupcakes look amazing, though! I love the idea of the pumpkin bowl- will definitely try that next year. And we have tried that Pumpkin beer- it's so tasty! Happy Halloween!
