Halloween inspirations

This is a Halloween round up of wonderful ideas of decor and treats.. Take a look and be inspired!!!!

                                                                                                                           Courtesy: Good housekeeping.
Love the way the pumpkins are used as candle lamps..So innovative .. Love the orange table runner as well.. A charming and easy fall and Halloween table decor!!!

                                                                                                                                   Courtesy: Good housekeeping.
Sugar pumpkins with color and theme coordinated ribbons in a bowl as table centerpiece.. Once done with the decor part these sugar pumpkins can be used to make a pie..Sugar or pie pumpkins make more tastier pies than the larger ones.  

                                                                                                                               Courtesy: Better homes &gardens
No carve Pumpkin design is so easy. You only needs a apple corer to scoop out the polka dots.. 

                                                                                                                                  Courtesy: House&home
Prepare the entry way with a twig wreath with plastic spiders and a little pumpkin glued on it. Arrange the pumpkins , scoop them and paint the design on it. Some paper jack luminaries and some fall leaves ....

Decorate pumpkins as simply or as elaborately with pretty ribbons.. Check this wonderful project on May Arts blog.

To end the decor round up I have a fantastic project. I was so thrilled to have found this wonderful project. I am in awe at how beautiful they look.. These beautiful cloth pumpkins cushions are made by the very creative Danielle. She has given a through step by step tutorial on  her blog : Thompson family blog

                                                                                                                                                   Courtesy: Woman's day.
Now let's turn to treats, cake and cookies for Halloween ... How about a Creepy cake stand .. Make ghosts, zombies, bats and everything scary with marzipan to top up the cup cakes..

Tombstone cookies.. Bake the cookies and pipe RIP on it and stick them in chocolate dessert cup ... Get the recipe here on  Womagz

                                                                                                                                                                                            Courtesy: Womagz
Ohhh how I love these .. Spooky ghosts on cupcakes.. Make these with marshmallow or whipped cream..  

                                                                                                                                                                                           Courtesy: House&home
Boo Cookies.. Decorate spooky cookies with cream and chocolate...

                                                                                              Courtesy: Halloween experts
