Tricks & Treats: Easy and Quick Halloween Party Ideas!

Halloween Party Printables and Party Ideas: Decor, Recipes and Crafts

Hello my pretties!! 

I'm currently working on Bird's Party EU SHOP lookbook, and Pinterest is one of my first calls for inspiration. But then it doomed on me (sorry, it's the Halloween vibe coming through..) that there' are sooo many complicated and time-consuming ideas and crafts out there...ain't nobody got time for that!

So I thought I'd step out of my usual pinspired route and see what I could find/create in a  jiffy and inexpensively, using every-day party goodies. 

Hopefully it shows that it doesn't really take much time (or skill) to create a boo-tiful display ;)

I have to say, these bread sticks look a little realistic... But I can also assure you they taste absolutely scrumptious, and totally helped to make the Halloween Chili Buffet a hit!

So much so in fact, that when I asked my daughter "What would you like to do for Halloween this year?"  (meaning costume...), she replied without a moment's hesitation - "Witch Bread Fingers!" :)

Black and White Halloween Party Ideas!

Have you ever been tempted to go monochrome for Halloween? I did last year, and totally loved it!
Monochrome is sleek, is chic and is one of the Fall color trends for 2013. What's not to love?!

I think this palette is really easy to pull together (think mummies, spiders, bats, crows...) and really helps to add an air of  grown-up sophistication to Halloween festivities. Check out some inspiring ideas I've been pinning:

So if you fancy a little something girly, glam and totally pinkalicious this Halloween, here are some of our fave ideas we've been pinning:

Cake It Pretty: Fall Leaf Mini Cakes Tutorial


If you would have seen my face yesterday as we drove out of the city and into the country for the afternoon, you would have thought the barrister slipped in a little something extra into my London Fog. On our way out the the pumpkin farm, the high-rises of our neighborhood were quickly replaced with row after row of golden-leafed trees. Maybe it's because I've lived in the city for a while now, but I had no idea I could ever be so excited about fall foliage. The beautiful colors of fall were captured in these Fall Leaf Mini Cakes.
