DIY Monster Bait (Halloween Crunch)…

….

Halloween  might be one of the best holidays cause it is all about sweet treats. Since I am not a huge chocolate bar fan I decided to adjust my crunch recipe to match the spooky season and maybe catch some little monsters in my home. 

I have made crunch for almost every holiday now but I have to admit Halloween and Christmas are the two most fun.

It is fairly easy to make the crunch. Just add all the materials into a bowl and mix it with white chcolate (you could also use dark chocolate but in my opinion the white one looks better with all the sprinkles and decor). I have used little pretzels, macadamia nuts and cereal. 

For decoration I went with little chocolate chunks, M&M´s and sugar eyes. The orange and the candy eyes are what make it truly a Halloween crunch.

For me the upcoming holidays and seasons are the best of the year. I do not mind warm weather and flowers at all but there is something so magical and whimsical about misty Fall mornings, falling leaves, the cool and fresh air and all the pumpkin decor. Taking a walk with a hot beverage and watching the Fall foliage will be something I enjoy forever.

Toddler Halloween Tea Party…

With Halloween coming closer day by day and Emilia at an age where she is able to understand what happens I wanted to explain this festivity to her but since most of it are way to scary, bloddy or else I decided to go with a cute Halloween Tea Party appropriate for a toddler.

I have found this adorable childrens plate set on amazon and thought this would be a great starting point from where I can build up my Halloween Tea Party table setting. The cute colors hit the right spot as well since we are in a total pink and blush phase at the moment plus kittens are always a good choice with Emilia.

The coffee table was the perfect size for the set up. The right height and not to small or too big. To add some drama (cause I love a dramatic setting) I went with an all black sequin table cloth we also used for Emilia´s Minnie Mouse birthday party. Some other spooky elements I loved were the bat balloon, the little ghosts, the black candles and the adorable checkered pumpkin.

Are you celebrating Halloween with your little ones in any way ??

Hello ladies,

I am sharing my second Halloween costume today which should have been a mommy and me costume and yes Emilia is in a few photos but she was not having it so she cried the whole time trying to escape. She hated the skirt and the cat ears although she loved them the day before. Toddlers, am I right?!!!

So yes this would be an adorable idea for a mommy and me costume. It is super easy to recreate and it is also pretty affordable. The black shirts and tight had already been in our closets so we only added the tulle skirts, the cat ears and the cat tails to the mix.

Everything is from amazon and has prime shipping so this would also be a great last minute costume if you can´t deceide until the end or have no time upfront.

To be honest I had so many cute mommy and me things planned but most of the time when Emilia sees the camera she just runs. I have to accept that she is no Instagram baby and I am fine with that cause the ocassional pic is fine with her. Very afraid of familiy pictures we are taking on the weekend.

Where are my Halloween loving ladies at?

Halloween is in about three weeks and it definitely is time to start prepping now. Whether you want to decorate, invite to a party, prep your costumes or make cute Halloween baskets for your kids.

I really enjoy making themed baskets for my little one but that shouldn´t be a surprise at all cause I love everything with a theme. You can read more about my Valentine´s Day and Easter baskets here and here.

Halloween Toddler Basket

So what to put into a Halloween toddler basket ? Well there is always the same order I follow. I get a basket (of course) and then I start with a book and usually a little stuffed animal. I also like to give out little toys but switched it for a cute ghost t-shirt. If she would be a little older I would officially go with Halloween candy but since we are trying to give her food with less processed sugar I went with a smoothie pack. She loves them and they also have great autumnal flavors with sweet potatoe, pumpkin and vanilla.

The baskets I have are from a local dollar store but amazon has similar ones and I am sure your dollar store has them too. Another thing I got for Emilia was a coloring book cause she really likes to color the last few weeks but it definitely isn´t one for a toddler. It doesn´t look nearly as cute on the inside as it does on the outside. Gonna keep it for a few years until she learns how to write since it is all about the ABC. Also last but not least (another dollar store find) cute 3D stickers. She never had sticker but I thought they would fit perfectly into the theme and the basket of course.

So since Emilia is still a little thing I don´t think we are going trick or treating this year. Do you have any plans for Halloween ?
