Start by baking some pumpkin bread (use your favorite pumpkin bread recipe) and then add one cup of butterscotch chips per loaf of bread.  It’s to die for….and then your house smells nice and ‘fall-like’ while you decorate……
Recruit your small children to paint pumpkins for you using apples…..
and flour sacks and plenty of creativity……
Jazz up your breakfast table with black and orange……
Put your daughter’s witch hat from last year on a pretty white pumpkin……

And if you don’t have a pretty white pumpkin…..spray paint one white and add some spook.   Just a ‘peek-a-BOO’ into our fall fun.  More to come soon!   For other great festive halloween ideas,  go the Kimba’s sight.  This post is part of her fall halloween party and there are many more great ideas to peek in on.   For now,  we’re off to paint some birds and ferns black…..oh,  and to do some latin and memory work,   of course.

  1. Very cool!!! I love Halloween! I’m so painting some pumpkins white and spelling out B O O! Very creative!!! Thanks for the ideas!

  2. I love your cute decorations. I am posting a fun one tomorrow, you’ll have to check it out. I also loved your daughters fergilicious track shoes. It’s almost worth doing track just to wear those shoes! 🙂

  3. One more thing, I took your advice on using only lamps, no over head lighting for my party Friday night and it looked awesome! I just used candles and lamps (except in the kitchen, sorry I had no choice) but it was so much warmer and cozy. Thanks!

  4. Oh Edie! Your decorations look so chic. I’m so inspired.. now all I have to do is start digging through boxes of decorations in the attic.
