A Thoughtful Place


Last Minute Halloween Treats

Not only is it Friday, but it’s Halloween! My children could barely sleep last night. I am not sure if it’s their ages or just being kids in general, but they are seriously crazy excited for tonight. While Halloween has never been my favorite holiday, seeing their excitement changes everything. They insisted on hosting a party tonight so we will have our sweet neighbors over for an easy Halloween dinner and then off to trick or treat. I wanted to give you a heads up in case you need anything last minute! I just ran to Michael’s yesterday. And while things are picked over, everything is 70% off and the kiddos were thrilled with the cute d├ęcor I brought home for their party.

And if you are last minute with your meal planning like I am, here are a few easy ideas.








black and white party

We will be keeping it simple. Hoping the parents of all the little ones don’t hate me for serving up cupcakes prior to trick or treating!  How do you a throw a party without them, right? And if cupcakes aren’t your thing, these cookies are so easy, too.

My husband and I had so much fun looking through old pictures of past Halloweens. My favorite may have been when we dressed up like bee keepers and the babies were bees, but this Mickey costume gets us every time. Our son was madly in love with Mickey and thought it was the best thing ever that he looked just like him! I guess these moments are why I end up embracing Halloween, after all. Wishing you all a really safe and fun night tonight. Enjoy making memories.

Check in tomorrow as I have the start of my Holiday Gift Guide Series as well as a big reveal of the Dream Tree Challenge. So much going on!


Dining in Style: It’s Sale Time

I love this time of year for entertaining. Whether it’s setting a fun table or making a room feel special for the holidays, it’s the perfect time of year to let a night drag on well into the evening and cuddle up by the fire. World Market is a great spot for well priced pieces and now all furniture is on sale! Hello!!!! I styled a couple of dining rooms to get your in the mood and hopefully inspire you to create a fun spot for entertaining.


The artwork and rug are brand new. You can check them out here and here.




The dining table above is the one I have on my own home. I seriously love it. It has just enough of a rustic charm with being too much and the extension allows us to host really big dinner parties.

Have you popped over to World Market lately? They really do have some amazingly cute finds and so much is on sale right now. Check out their 25% off all furniture here.

This early bird was up for the sunrise this morning. So so rare. I better make the most of the day. Enjoy yours, sweet friends.
