A Vintage Cool Little Rascals Birthday Party

I love this super sweet birthday party shared by the talented ladies of the newly launched Three Cheers Creative. They played off a vintage-inspired Little Rascals theme with pickle jars wrapped in kraft paper, a box car race on a kraft paper racetrack, cute little bow ties, gingham napkins and old school games and whoopee cushions. I love every last detail from the polka dot straws to the gumball machine to the dip-dyed flatware.

Sweet Eats: Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies

Long time readers have heard me wax poetic about my love for pumpkin sweets and treats year after year and this year is no exception. I’ve been itching to get in the kitchen and make myself a mess with flour and sugar, and I think these pumpkin spice chocolate chip cookies look just right for the task. I’m glad to see I’m not the only one who can’t resist the combination of pumpkin and chocolate.

Halloween Printables + a Black Flag DIY

Hello dearies, it’s Jenny again from Hank + Hunt with super fun Halloween printables for your trick or treating pleasure! So, we are less than a week away…has anyone else planned a Halloween bash this weekend? The boys and I have decided to throw one last minute on Friday. We are going black, white and spooky. I have a special treat for you, a hauntingly simple little set of printables for your very own spooky soiree.

An invitation to get your guests to swing by your haunt.

There is a sheet of treat tags, to print on sticker paper or attach with double stick tape or Glue Dots.

I even cut slits to slide over the straws to gussy up my bewitching beverages.

Of course, I had to include some cupcake flags (use on straws, too!) in stripes to match. I have some with sayings, some with plain boxes for your own word witchery or just some plain good ol’ stripes.

An added bonus? Here is a quick little cupcake flag topper diy tutorial…made from black floral tape!

Grab some lollipop sticks, wrap 5 inch tears of floral tape around the top, pull slightly to stretch, adhere tape and viola! No scissors required, tearing gives that rough, haunted look…perfect for our bash!

Download your printables and get spooky – trick or treat!

Party Palette: Autumn Maple Leaf

Good morning and happy Monday, friends! Can you believe Halloween is just a week away? I’m definitely feeling the autumn chill this week and can’t wait to prep little bags of goodies for trick or treaters. I’m already looking forward to the weekend when we’ll be carving pumpkins and taking refuge from the cold by cozying up and watching Halloween movies. (Hocus Pocus, anyone?) To kick the week off in appropriate fashion, here’s a little autumn-inspired color palette for your pleasure.

Friday Link Love

Hello, weekend! I’m so happy it’s Friday again, I’ve got to tell you. I love the excitement of the anticipation of the weekend. Lazy mornings with big cups of coffee and long stretches of quiet hours to fill however you please. Whoever invented the weekend deserves a Nobel Peace Prize if you ask me. What are you up to this weekend? I’m going to continue soaking up as much fall as I can before it’s all but gone. I swear summer passed by in a blink, so I’m trying to really savor the flavors and scents of fall before it too is whisked away by the cold. Have a happy and beautiful weekend and I’ll see you here on Monday! xoxo

I want a vintage VW camper van! (via)

Such a pretty picnic wedding.

Be a rag doll for Halloween.

Need to pay a visit to the Pantone Hotel.

Love me some oatmeal for breakfast.

So sweet: a book of love notes.

Crushin’ on these colorful party kits.

Have I ever told you how much I love gnomes?

Freezer paper stencils = genius.

A spooky wedding, done right.

Still loving neon.

A fresh Halloween color palette.
