Pin of the Day: Pumpkin Paper Lanterns

Aren’t these Pumpkin Paper Lanterns from Pier 1 sweet? They are a steal – a set of 3 8″ lanterns for $10.28. I don’t want to forget these on my next shopping trip so I’m saving them on my Ghosts and Ghouls Board!





Inspiration: Pumpkins!

It’s not Halloween without pumpkins. While carving them up is the classic route, I found tons of creative ways to dress up these seasonal favorites without getting out the carving set. Don’t forget, if you use real pumpkins you can throw in the silica gel from shoeboxes to keep them from molding. They’re all saved to my Ghosts and Ghouls Board.

Inspiration: Halloween Party Snacks

Pinterest is blowing up with adorable (and some not-so-adorable) ideas for Halloween party snacks. I prefer the cute, “not-so-scary” Halloween decor to the gory “looks-like you’re eating someone’s eyeball” Halloween style. Here is a compilation of some of the best salty and savory treats I found across the web and saved to my Ghosts and Ghouls Board. Hope it provides some inspiration! Another Halloween-themed installment will follow with all the seriously sweet treats and desserts I could find!
