Stylish and spooky all at the same time! I saw the idea for these somewhere on the internet and immediately fell in love! The best part? They are soooo easy and inexpensive to make. I found everything to make these at the local dollar store (even the cute little placemat) and had
them put together in minutes. Ooops, wait...I actually got the ribbon at Michaels...but other than that...completely dollar store. :)
Instructions for how to make them are on the Halloween decorating ideas page. Give them a try...you're going to love them! Tweet

Trick or Treat!
These little lollipops put the "spook" in spooktacular! Super easy to put together, and incredibly inexpensive, these are a must-do for Halloween!
Whip up a bunch to hand out to trick-or-treaters, or stuff them into a pumpkin for a fun centerpiece and party favor idea.

This is my son and his buddy dressed up as mummies last year.
They sat veerrry still on our porch with their eyes closed, and when the kids got really close and tried to reach in the candy bowls for their goodies, the boys would move and scare them.
It was sooo much fun for everyone!
We had people coming back again and again just to find out if the mummies were real or pretend!
This year we're throwing a teen Halloween party, so who knows what type of costumes we'll see.
If you're in the market for a costume for your teen, check out our Teen Halloween Costumes page for some fun ideas.
Happy Haunting! Tweet

Looking for some fun ideas to keep your teens safe and happy this Halloween?
Teens aren't always the easiest to please, but with four teens living in my house, I'm learning quickly what's cool and not cool! :)
A Halloween party is cool. A Halloween party with the parents hanging around is not.
Our Teen Halloween Party page is full of ideas that will make you and your teens happy...even if just for a little while! :)
Be sure to check it out.

Aren't these spooky little treats just adorable?!! They can be whipped up in minutes...literally...and can be used in so many ways!
When you make them into cookie bouquets like the one above, they can be used as centerpieces for the table or as gifts for your neighbors.
When you tuck them into scrapbook paper "pockets" they become fantastically frightful favors.

I had a lot of fun experimenting with some new
recipes over the weekend, and I have to say, my kids and hubby were more than willing to be taste-testers! :)
