Give thanks

Today, it’s Halloween – hope everyone is dressed in their most scary outfit, and ready to do some “trick or treat”-ing!

As the entertaining junkie that I am, this day marks the starting signal for planning the next holiday: Thanksgiving!

Here, I found the most beautiful and rustic free printables which are perfect for you who’s planning on hosting a Thanksgiving dinner. But also, some parts of the collection is suitable as simple notes to someone special to you, whom you might want to give some special thanks to during this lovely holiday It’s also perfect as a label on a hostess gift, if you’re invited to dinner, and some parts can also be used for other dinner parties than Thanksgiving.

Very nice and rustic font used for the collection!

Let your guests know what they eat – this part of the collection can easily be used for other types of dinner parties as well!


A small token of appreciation for your guests

Such a sweet note – perfect for those special people in your life!

If you like what you see, go to the TomKat Studio and follow the instructions, and the collection will be sent to your email!


Girly Halloween

How about a new take on an old classic? How about a pink and orange Halloween? Scare the guys out of the house for the night and make it a Girly Halloween with this Ghouls Night theme.

This fabulous theme is created by our favourite Hostess – and I think it’s superb!

I LOVE the “Dying of Thirst” label – funny and smart!

I think the whole theme is so well made, with lots of humor!

If this is something you would like for Halloween, buy it here tonight! Right now it’s even 25 % off so it’s a bargain!


Friday Feast

This Friday Feast is a bloody one: I’ve already written a post about Halloween inspired food, but when i found this horrifying dish here, at this wonderful blog, I just had to make another:

How about some finger food for Halloween?

Start by making a pizza dough. Use your regular one, and if you don’t have a “regular” – look at this one.

Roll out the dough and cut one end to get the effect of a cut off finger. Place dough on a baking tray covered with baking paper. Brush the dough with lightly beaten egg. Press an almond or brazil nut on the end that nail. Sprinkle with poppy seeds or black sesame seeds or put dried rosemary in the dough as “hair”. Roll like a small “warts” with the dough and insert them in with eggs. Use tomato puree like blood. Fry until golden brown.

Keep your fingers in the freezer if they are not to be eaten immediately. Or let them dry out completely if you intend to use the more as decoration.

Happy weekend everyone!

Pink glamorous nursery

I’m still searching the web for inspiration for my daugther’s nursery in our new apartment that we’re moving into soon. Today, I stumbled upon this gorgeous nursery. To be honest, it is probably a bit too glamorous for us, but oh so beautiful, with a wonderful colour scheme. This is definately going in my inspiration folder!

I love love love the wallpaper and the flyffy white sheep skin as a rug!

Little treasures that this little princess will probably admire as she gets older

What do you think? Isn’t this just the most glamorous nursery?

Even more Halloween Costumes for your little ones

Halloween is only a few days away, and there’s a lot to organize for this scary celebration. Has your little prince or princess gotten their own costume yet? How about checking out some of my Etsy finds for baby costumes:

For your little sailor:

For the Princess superhero:

or perhaps you need a more masculine type:

If your little baby boy is not the superhero type, how about a cowboy costume?

A sweet mermaid is perhaps more your style?

If none of these is quite your taste, check out these costumes!



Host a Hope Party

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and this very important cause deserves its own party! Throw your own Hope Party to give some attention to it, and if you’re up for it – how about making it a Charity Hope Party, and raise som money for the cause as well? Invite your friends, sisters, mothers, daughters – and ask everyone to bring along some clothes they don’t use anymore. Have a mini-second-hand sale in your living room and donate the money to the breast cancer cause! A party with a meaning – what can be better!

Over at Bird’s Party you can get some wonderful free printables to give your party that extra little someting, just look at these beautiful pictures:

Love the cupcake toppers witht the inscriptions “Courage”, “Life”, and “Hope”!
Aren’t the Breast Cancer ribbons nice?

Cute signs for the cake!

Sweet “Thank You” notes for your guest gifts

I also want to tip about a wonderful tableware series that would go perfect with this party theme:
