Feeling Festive

Here are some pictures of the Autumn-inspired touches around our home, as well as some yummy Fall and Halloween-themed foods I've made over the past few weeks:

Hot cocoa made with half and half (inspired by Carrie), served in one of my favorite Starbucks mugs (bought last year for $2 during a post-Christmas sale!)

Food and decor at our little Halloween gathering...The orange Target platter holds "Halloweenies" - hot dog weenies wrapped in crescent rolls with 2 little dots of mustard for "eyes" - they looked like mummies :)

My first ever home-made apple pie (served on Halloween, hence the bat-shaped vents)

Layla, from theletteredcottage, inspired these...However, instead of real pumpkins, paint, and using a doily as a stencil, I used faux pumpkins (so they can be used year after year), a brown sharpie marker, and I free-handed the "W" and the design.

The wreath on our door, bought at Michael's for 50% off

What are your favorite Fall foods or decorations?
