I’m soooo excited it’s almost time for Halloween! If you’re looking for some last minute decorating ideas you’ve come to the right place. I’ve got some super easy and inexpensive things that will do the trick! First up is my cookbook stand. I really hate to just decorate the table and that’s it, so why not extend the area a little? I took a black sheet of scrapbook paper and some shiny silver letters as well as some 99 cent star/magic stickers. I just slip the sheet of paper over the cookbooks and poof you have a simple quick and easy cover for your stand.

Next thing I did was rummage through my flower vases. By adding some water and a few drops of food coloring you get a vase of blood and green science jars. I added some dry ice so they would bubble away then later added some floating candles when the dry ice was done. Don’t fill them full with water if you plan on adding dry ice, because you’ll end up with a lot of water on your table from the bubbles.

Toss around some extra spider rings and arrange all your food.

I’ve been busy trying out recipes for a chili contest coming up so can’t post the recipe yet as I’m still tweaking it. I will show you my “moldy cornbread” though. 🙂 For this I just added some green food coloring to the Jiffy box mix recipe and baked them in mini muffin cups. It’s the little details that count! Not sure why they look neon with the flash on and super pale in the natural light but they looked really good in person. I used about 6 drops of food coloring with 2 box mixes.

And last but not least don’t forget to use the pumpkins as a vase! These work great as a hostess gift or a center piece.

Hope you have a super safe spook-tacular Halloween!!
