This week we’ve had the most perfect weather.  It really feels like fall is here!  Here in the South, we only get a few weeks of what I’d call perfect weather.  (It’s usually hot, hotter, or too cold.)  Needless to say, this is an exciting time.  And it puts me in the mood for all things fall.  A couple of weeks ago I did a little decorating in the house, and included in my decor was a few items from Oriental Trading.  They have some of the cutest decorations and party supplies for all occasions.

Friday Favorites – Week 292 – With Fun Halloween Treat Bag Ideas

Happy Halloween Eve!  And welcome to this week’s Friday Favorites party!  Last night I was busy making Halloween treat bags for our son to carry to school for all the saxophone and tuba players in marching band.  (I LOVE making treat bags!)

Incidentally as I looked though last week’s link up, I found some cute and unique treat bag ideas for Halloween.  It may be a little late to use them this year…but if you have kids and you’ll be making treat bags next year, it’s never too early to bookmark some ideas!  Take a look!

Friday Favorites – Week 290 – With Halloween Decor

Happy Friday to you!  Even though I’ve put my party post over every week, I feel terrible that I’ve missed out on doing features these last two or three weeks! And I especially regret that all this business happened during what is perhaps my favorite time of year for blogging….I LOVE featuring fall and Halloween ideas!

But on the flipside, one of the thing’s that has kept from me from doing features is all the great blog work I’ve been doing.  Lately I really feel like I’ve cranked out some fun and creative posts!  If you have time, I’d love for you to take a look at all the recipes and projects we’ve been busy with!

Now without further ado, let’s get to this week’s party featuring some oh-so-creative Halloween decor!

Hersheys Halloween Scarecrow Pudding Cups

Fall is such a fun time!  Each year I look forward to seeing all the fun decor in stores and online, and I love breaking out my own decorations!  Fall also brings a lot of great opportunity to make great snacks and treats, from football food to Halloween goodies!  Today I’m excited to share a fun tutorial on how to make Scarecrow Pudding Cups using Hershey’s Ready to Eat Pudding.

These pudding cups are a great treat that you can make and serve at your child’s Halloween party or other fall events.  And it is also a great activity that moms can do with kids, or elementary teachers can do with their students.  Just give everyone a pudding cup and a plate of ingredients, and then let them go crazy!
