Hello friends! Happy October! If you don’t know already, I absolutely love this month! I feel like it’s a fun month for creativity. Whether it’s making your costumes, making party treats or just good old home decorations. It’s just such a fun month! Not to mention my kids love Halloween! Yesterday morning when I turned on nick Jr for Breaker he was ecstatic that the logo was Halloween style, lol! Running around the house saying it’s October 1st I’m so excited for Halloween.
So with that said , I’m dedicating this month to Halloween on the blog! Each week I’ll have a new Halloween themed blog up! This week I’m starting with a simple table set up for a Halloween themed cookies and cocktails! I love a theme!
The table I kept simple! Fresh flowers are always a must. I kept it skeleton theme. And I liked the idea of cookies and cocktails. Of course you can have a food spread, a charcuterie board is always perfect! You can even ask each guest to bring cookies, to make it more fun. Halloween themed of course! And don’t forget the cocktails. I’d keep it simple maybe some champagne or a simple not so sweet cocktail. Sangria is always fun! I purchased the cool skeleton straws at party city, I thought they were a cool touch.
The cookies I mean are you dead from how cute they are! These are so cute and just add such a perfect touch for the theme! These are from , With a pinch of love! She makes the cutest cookies and treats. And can match any theme you’d like! I’d say the perfect part of a Halloween party! Even for classes or co-workers! I’ll leave her info below! Order early, and head over to my Instagram for her cute treat bags she makes!
Invite your favorite girl pals over and to set the mood of Halloween, set a theme to dress code. You can do pajama party, black and white! You can have each girl make a Halloween inspired headband and maybe have a contest on best headband! Or make it chic and have it cocktail dress attire!
Hope you liked this simple table set up! Till next spooky post!

Hello Everyone! Hope you all are doing well! I’m over here just gearing up for my Vacay! I leave this Sunday. I’m feeling all the feels, excited, scared, sad and nervous. Leaving the boys is so hard. But this mama needs a break. I’m looking forward to this recharge. Don’t forget to follow along with me on IG. And I’ll be posting a blog on my vacay once I’m back.
So Today’s Blog post is going to be short but sweet. I wanted to share some family friendly Halloween activities to get us in the Halloween spirit. With it being the first week of October thought this was perfect to let you all in on some. Some I list I have attended , Some I haven’t yet. And I’ll give an idea that won’t break the bank.
First is probably my favorite so far Mickey’s Halloween party! But I’m not sure if tickets are still available. I did do a full post on this last year when we attended. We sat this year out because of my trip I was just a little overwhelmed. But we will definitely be there next year.
Second is Ghost Train at Griffith park, we did this a few years back. Breaker was even too small to ride. So it was myself and David. It’s definitely on our list this year. It’s so cute the kids will love it. It’s in travel town and it’s a pretty long ride not scary at all. just fun. First weekend is Oct 13 from 7pm-10pm. They only ride on the weekends. And will be open 10/30-10/31. Tickets are sold at the door $20 each rider. Line does get long so arrive early.
Third is Descanso Gardens pumpkin festival, Rise of the Jack o’ lanterns. This starts Oct 1st- Nov 1st. I have not been to this one. I will try to make it out this year. I think it will be fun for the kids as well. Advanced ticket purchase is required, prices $22-$28 varies from dates.
fourth is Camp Spooky. Another I have not been to. But I’ve been to the evening one, SCARY! So this one is made for the little ones. I think it has the same idea like Mickey’s Halloween party. They have trick o treating for the kids and other fun stuff. I believe Knott’s Berry farm isn’t as expensive like Disneyland so worth the try. I noticed tickets are less if you purchase online.
Fifth is my favorite and the cheapest, LOL! One of our favorite things to do is take the boys to get a treat to eat in the car and drive around the areas we know decorate for Halloween every year. They love to see the houses and it just put us in the Halloween spirit. I know now a days everything is so expensive for a family of four so don’t ever feel spending more is more fun. I grew up not having much but my memories like these are with me forever.
Hope you all liked this Post. Let me know in comments if you’ve been to any. Side note these are all in the LA area or near. Till next post!
