Friday the 13th!!! In exactly 18 days, Halloween will be here and this is the official beginning to the Holiday season…at least that’s what I like to think! Before kids, Halloween was all about finding the right costume, going trick or treating with friends , or better yet going out in “costume” to meet friends. As a parent the goals have changed DRASTICALLY…I am all about setting up the house with Halloween/Fall Decor & then of course creating a fun SCREAMTASTIC tablescape for everyone to enjoy before the trick or treating begins!
Not everything has to be scary, and with a 5 year old & 2 year old, I like to keep things age appropriate.

Drink for the night was kid friendly but can be made into an adult beverage with the addition of vodka.
As a little side note from HML to add a little something easy but greatly appreciated, the night of, create ice cubes with mini plastic spiders in them. Click here for recipe on how to make them. They will be a HUGE HIT! ( HML DOES NOT RECOMMEND THESE ICE CUBES FOR ANY CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 12; as these plastic spiders may become a choking hazard if not discarded of properly once the ice cube melts.)
