Halloween Chilling Chili Recipe

Halloween Chilling Chili Recipe

My husband makes the best chili I've ever tasted. So much so in fact, that I never order it in restaurants for the fear it won't be on par! :) So when styling my Halloween Chili Buffet , the natural choice was to cook his chili recipe, and today I'm sharing it with you. It's simple, unctuous and tastes awesome. And you can make it ahead of the party! ;)

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:

DIY Fall Leaf Fondant Cupcake Toppers

DIY Fall Leaf Fondant Cupcake Toppers

If you would have seen my (Tess) 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.

October has started, and promises to be like a crazy whirlwind. But when the work I do for the blog gets shared or feature in the press, it more than makes up for the long hours and hard work.

And that my friends, is totally priceless! :)
