Why You Shouldn’t Throw Halloween Candy Away

Mamas, does it feel like there is Halloween candy everywhere? Are your kids constantly asking for it? Have you threatened to throw it away 100 times? I totally feel you! But trust me, don’t do it! Don’t throw it away!

(Especially the Reese Cups, you may need them later! Candy tax, right mamas?)

 Hide it if you need to but don’t throw it away. You are probably thinking I am crazy but trust me, there is a reason!

Think gingerbread houses!

Yes girls, they make great decorations for gingerbread houses! Especially if you have one of these beauties! Which is not only the perfect size for a whole family to do together but it is reusable (think spooky Halloween house, Easter cottage, Valentine’s Day love house)! You can purchase yours here using my affiliate link: http://amzn.to/2zse3rJ

I can’t wait to see pictures of your gingerbread houses covered in all of that Halloween candy!!!! The perfect way to recycle those sweet treats!

Happy decorating,

Jessica

Leaves and Lights

My tomato cage tree is one of my favorite fall decorations. It sits on the hearth next to my fireplace and it’s warm glow just makes the room feel so homey. This is a quick and easy project with only 3 supplies: lights, tomato cage, and leaf garland! That’s it! Easy peasy!  Imagine how pretty they would look to have them sitting on your front porch. That screams come and sit and have a pumpkin spice latte! Now, go dig in the garage to find your old tomato cages and clean them up!

 

Happy Decorating,

Rachael Ray Segment

Things have been a little exciting around here lately! Imagine my surprise while visiting Magnolia and the Rachael Ray Show called! Me! They called me!!! Totally Crazy! They asked me to do a simple craft and I absolutely love how it turned out! But what I was most excited about was my tablescape. Yep, my table.  Not the craft itself but that table that you only saw for a few seconds. Are you wondering why? I’ll fill you in on my entertaining secrets. Everything on my table was either from Walmart, The Dollar Tree, or Lowes Home Improvement. That’s it! Hello gorgeous and economical! Does it get any better?

Happy Entertaining!

**I apologize for the quality of the video. The show does not provide a link for past episodes so this was the best I could do.

A Little Chandelier Makeover 


Ahh… Fall​​! I love everything about it! The changing leaves, the chill in the air, and all things pumpkin spice. As I pull the big tubs of decorations down from the attic I giggle with excitement! Pumpkins and leaf garlands fill the boxes and before I know it the whole house feels warm and cozy. Using garland on my chandeliers is one of my favorite details when decorating. It is small but makes a big impact!!

Hoping your homes are overflowing with pumpkins and leaves and you find time sit and soak it all in!

    Happy Fall Y’all!

Fall Basket Love

I am so loving the turquoise and orange color combo this year! It may not be traditional but it is super cute and my dollar tree pumpkins are the perfect filler! I ended up attaching the words with wire so I can reuse or repaint the basket if I want to change things up! I love a project that can be repurposed! Enjoy!!!!

Happy Fall Y’all!

Cutest little pumpkins you have ever seen!

My love of the dollar tree is no secret but these pumpkins……. I really can’t stop! It is a problem! Every time I pass a store I find the wheel steering toward that bright green awning and their they are. Boxes of ugly orange pumpkins! But not for long! After a mini transformation they are cute as can be!

 

Happy pumpkin making,

Jessica
