I love this time of year. This weekend we set up our Halloween display out front and it makes me so happy to see our neighborhood getting festive. We have a block party in our cul-de-sac and cozy around the firepits visiting and passing out candy to the kids.
Here are some ideas for DIY outdoor Halloween decorations:
I have one more post I promise to write up this week about the Halloween gourds we decorated this year. Be sure to check back!
Happiness is Homemade #219
Hey Everyone, It’s my month to host Happiness is Homemade October woohoo. If you are joining from a blog other than mine I am Linda from A Labour of Life. And I am so happy I live in a World that has October’s.
I will be hosting all this month and that puts a full Pumpkin Smile on my face. October is Fall and Canadian Thanksgiving and Halloween and did I mention Pumpkin Spice?
Happiness is Homemade Features to Start October
This week I selected a little bit of everything Fall, some food, a craft, a diy firepit and even an awesome table. Enjoy and please let’s see what amazing Fall and Halloween ideas you have for Happiness is Homemade.
First up is Virginia Sweetpeas awesome Woodland Tablescape
Today’s Lakeside Woodland Fall Tablescape is a result of a Pinterest challenge that Paula participates in. Apparently it is a monthly challenge hosted by Cindy from County Road 407. Each month Cindy picks a picture from Pinterest and challenges the group to recreate the look. I think I want to get involved with that challenge because y’all know how much I love my tablescapes.
How beautiful are these Velvet no sew pumpkins? And so on point. I was at Michael’s this weekend and the shelves were filled with amazing velvet pumpkins. Gone are the traditional Orange. Today’s must haves are great colours with amazing textures.
Pumpkin Pie Crisp is an amazing twist on the traditional Apple Crisp. MY mouth was watering just seeing the picture. I could smell the warm hints of pumpkin through my screen. You can bet I have pinned this for a future dessert.
Can it truly be October without an amazing soup recipe? This delicious dish from Simply Designing Porch is going to become a Fall Favourite. A Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup made in the crock pot.
The final feature had me drooling in a whole different manner. A homemade Firepit anchored in the yard with a gravel walkway feature. DIY Firepit and walkway is on my list of must have’s. Sadly it will mean moving out of the city but I would totally move to have this. I am not kidding you folks, picture this by the lake!Would you like to be a part of Happiness Is Homemade?
