Afterschool Midweek Treat – Candy Corn Themed

Happy October! And a happy Wednesday! It’s really a double treat today- it’s hump day (Friday is so close!) AND it’s the start of Fall, as far as I’m concerned.

So to celebrate, I thought it would be fun to throw a little midweek party. If I was a kid still in school, I would be surprised and so excited to come home and have a candy corn themed dinner.

Here’s what’s on the menu:

Have you noticed most stores are pretty much skipping thanksgiving décor and going straight to Christmas everything? Well I have!

And while I’m all for Christmas décor, (it is one of my favorite holidays to decorate for) it kind of seems that Thanksgiving gets the short end of the décor stick.

This week I am sharing with you an inspiration board for your thanksgiving 2013 table. I’m obviously a huge fan of glitter anything, but I really love the idea of having a sparkly thanksgiving table. While the traditional orange and tan and yellows are great, they can get a little boring year after year. Plus, if you shop smart, you can get a TON of post-Halloween pumpkins and décor super cheap, and glitter them up yourself to save a bundle.

Candy Apple Dipping + Decorating Party Ideas

Are you ready for autumn? I know here in Florida we don’t really get  the full effects of the season, and sometimes it’s just hard to have pumpkin flavored everything when it’s still 90+ degrees out you know?

Last year on my original blog, I shared a really fun post about hosting a pumpkin decorating party. I love those types of parties because literally ANYONE can go and participate. And there doesn’t have to be a birthday or wedding reception to happen.  Just a party for the sake of a party!

Today you will see my favorite ideas for hosting an apple dipping party. As always, anything I could find an original recipe, shop or tutorial for I always share below, so check them out!
