I’ve always had a thing for copper, when given the choice I’ll always pick it over silver or gold. When Oriental Trading Company reached out for a Thanksgiving collaboration I was immediately drawn to the sparkly copper items. I thought an autumn table candle display was a great time to celebrate my love of copper.
On Saturday Mary finally had her dream birthday party. We had her Halloween spider party at the town park; despite a very wet and dreary start to the day the weather tuned around and it ended up being a beautiful day. We had spiders and spider webs everywhere, even on the cake and taco dip! Irving the spider pinata made another appearance and everyone had a great time.

Halloween is my favorite day of the year, I love going all out for the holiday just like my mom did when I was a kid. That may explain why I’ve had life sized skeleton on my Christmas list for years. I thought it would be fun to move it around and put in funny situations. So when Oriental Trading Company reached out to send me some Halloween decorations I was thrilled. This was my chance to have my very own skeleton. It was only right that he be the feature of my front yard this year.

It’s not a party without a pinata! For Mary’s Halloween birthday party we took it to another level by filling it with a few surprises and getting the kids in on some pre-pinata crafts.
I was lucky enough to partner with Oriental Trading Company for this party, they sent me a few goodies to help us celebrate. Just like with all my sponsored posts all the ideas and ideas and opinions are my own. On the off chance that you aren’t familiar with OTC they have a HUGE catalog of just about anything you can think of. They are the perfect source for party planning and holiday shenanigans. I spent a few hours going through their Halloween pages picking out stuff for the party. If you’re still in the market for Halloween Costumes they have lots of fun options too. [Read more…]

I’m not a sports fan (do you really think I have time for that? haha) but I do enjoy the food. My husband is a huge Giants fan so we do catch a few games on his days off. We usually head to my Aunts where we watch it on her giant (ha! it’s a pun) TV and I sit at the kitchen table munching on snacks and reading cookbooks. The snacks are always plentiful, we always make venison chili for the main dish but we fill ourselves up with half a dozen dips and chip/cracker combos. [Read more…]
