The Weekend Dish: Halloween Spirit

by

Hi pals, what’s in store this weekend?

pumpkins

Sarah and I are getting into the Halloween spirit. I’m planning to visit a pumpkin patch to pick out the perfect Cinderella Pumpkin to decorate at my friend’s pumpkin carving birthday party.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip muffins

I think I’ll bring my famous mini pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. Dense and deeply pumpkin and spice flavored to celebrate the season.

Halloween cookies

I might also make our mini Halloween cookies by substituting the chocolate chips in a standard chocolate chip cookie recipe for black and orange M & M’s as seen above. These are irresistible, I want to eat the picture.

Thirsty Scientist drink

I’m dying to try this Jack-O-Lantern Martini (a Manhattan with hints of pumpkin, apples, and fall spices) created by my friend Jason of The Thirsty Scientist. His mobile mixology services were featured on The Kitchn blog this week! I hear he may have an opening still for Halloween weekend if your party wants to chic it up a notch.

I heart Martha Stewart glitter crafts (as seen here) so much that I actually made these glitter pumpkins 3 years ago and highly recommend the project.

Mine are not a prefect as Martha’s but I was still proud of myself. Wishing you all a crisp and cool weekend.

My best friend Mary is getting married on Halloween this year. Every time I tell someone this they scrunchy up their face and say “Costumes? Fake cobwebs? Why would you want that at your wedding?” Well I’m here to set the record straight, Halloween decor can be chic.

October flower arrangements don’t have to be all pumpkins, gourds and leaves (not that those are bad.) If you want to glam up your fall Holiday table or household decor check out these arrangements I made last year for a clients Halloween Dinner.
