Halloween Recap: Fun Decor & Yummy Treats

Halloween Inspiration Recap & Dessert Appetizer Buffet Table

Halloween was a blast! I thought I’d share a few pictures on the details of the event (and a follow-up on my ‘dead floral arrangements’… as promised). My apologies in advance for the sub-par pictures, I snapped as many as I could before the sun finally set (oh, winter!).

Friends filled in the table with all sorts of yummy treats for the evening… but here’s the start of our appetizer/dessert buffet.

And my puppy as the King of the Jungle. Roar. He was such a sport to wear his homemade mane all night long!

Guest Blog Interview: TomKat Studios!

I’m so excited for today’s feature!! Kim, of TomKat Studio, is a true ‘mom-preneur': she runs a fabulous blog, an adorable Etsy shop and was recently the ‘Mama Power’ feature in one of Arizona’s top city magazines! Even TomKat is derived from her two little ones, Tommy + Kate. So when I asked if she wouldn’t mind sharing her favorite entertaining design & trend secrets… I was so excited for her ‘yes!’

If you haven’t heard of the DIY diva, you must check her amazing style out — I would include her among my favorite inspirations, especially in the paper genre (check out her Etsy site and you’ll know what I mean!). I asked Kim if she would share her recent Halloween projects from a custom dessert buffet (featured in the Houston news! Check out the clip!) as part of our {Halloween Feature Friday Guest Blog Interview!}
