#VeryPumpkin Winners!

October 31, 2014

Winner winner chicken (err… pumpkin??) dinner time! Where did that saying even come from? I should look it up sometime. Alright, on to the good stuff. We had a pretty darn awesome pumpkin carving contest. Tons of pumpkins were entered throughout the week, 9 were chosen as finalists yesterday, and our Instagram followers voted on 3 #verypumpkin winners.

We had close to 800 votes in less than 24 hours and a VERY tight race between 2nd and 3rd (seriously, like within a few votes!). Can I get a little whoop whoop! And now… we are happy to announce the winners of the first annual Pumpkin Decorating Contest!

Can I get a little drum roll???

Have a Healthy Halloween

October 29, 2014

Brace yourself, your kids are about to be faced with the biggest sugar high of the year! If you are already cringing at the thought, these ideas are pretty much perfect for you! Here are some great alternatives for a healthier, fun, Halloween.

A whole lot cuter than the candy! Aren’t these adorable? I envision these set up with on a gorgeous Halloween scape at a fun little Halloween party.


Need an afternoon snack idea? This is a fun way to serve up a kiddos favorite, orange cuties.


This is probably my favorite Halloween snack. Your little monster is really going to dig eating a monster mouth!


This is the best idea for a class party. And you and your little will have a blast making the little pumpkin faces for his/her friends.


Yummy! My kids are going to gobble this sorbet up! The Pumpkin and Frankenstein bowls are to die for, but don’t fret if you don’t have one. Put it in a regular bowl and garnish with different fruits to make silly faces.


Alright, let’s face it. One of the funnest parts of Halloween is the trick or treating, but rest assured knowing there is a Candy Buy Back program! Tons of cities are joining together to buy back Halloween candy to spare mothers from the constant candy battle. Let your kids pick a few favorites then have them donate their candy. There are tons of organizations joining the fun! Dentists, non-profits, and many corporations are donating Halloween candy to all sorts of different groups. What an easy way to serve, and skip out on a nasty sugar coma.
