Happiness is Homemade #449

Welcome to Happiness is Homemade! Linda from A Labour of Life will be choosing our features for the month of October. Before we get to this week’s features, let’s check out what’s been going on here on the blog over the past few days. Be sure to head over and link up on Crafty Creators and You’re the Star Blog Hop before you go! If you missed last week’s party, you can check it out here. Remember to comment on You’re the Star Blog Hop for your chance to be featured on that party! I do not choose my features from last month’s party because I feel like it’s too far back. For example, I don’t want to choose a Halloween post in November lol! I will only visit those posts in the comments on that party because I have two others. I really want to choose from a wider range of blogs, so head over & comment now!

For our monthly Under $10 on the 10th Blog Hop I shared this burlap and lace pumpkin wreath. I still have yards of free burlap that my cousin scored for free from a wedding. They were just going to toss the stuff!

Monday I joined up with talented bloggers to bring you each of our own versions of fall tray decor. You have to check out the talent of the ladies on the blog tour.

I’ll be “booing” my neighbors this coming week, so I created these adorable DIY Halloween gift bags to place their goodies in. The free “boo” gift tags will be available on Tuesday!

This Week’s Feature

This month I, Linda from A Labour of Life, get to share my love of fall, Canadian Thanksgiving, and Halloween. For this Canadian it is an amazing time of year. Today, I celebrate Fall in all its glory. Muted pumpkins, rustic decor and all the things to sip and savor.  Come show us what you are working on.

Celebration of Spookiness

This week, a return back to all things Halloween. Celebrating everything fun and spooky. I am back to my standard: sips and fun.

First up is the cutest witches brew punch cocktail from Organized Island. This fun witch’s brew drink is a fun and festive way to celebrate Halloween. It provides some spooky fun for party guests and is always a big hit at Halloween parties. It is also fun for a hocus pocus party.

Cheers to Charcuterie Creepiness

Next up from The Happy Mustard Seed is Halloween charcuterie board. This DIY Halloween cheese board is simple to make without cooking. You can follow along with our easy step by step guide and build the most beautiful DIY cheese board.

Dinner in a Pumpkin Recipe

How fun is this dinner for Halloween or anytime in the fall actually. Midlife Healthy Living has really upped for the fun healthy dinner concept with dinner in a pumpkin. The recipe is very simple and takes about 30 mins of prep and 1 hour of cooking time. Your kids will be thrilled to see a pumpkin on the table for dinner.

Wine Sipping Heaven

And then, not a tablescape as there weren’t any this week much to my disappointment, but I am still on brand lol. Deb from Debbs Buzz shared the beginnings of her tablescape planning with a fun painted wine glass. The DIY spooky Dollar Tree wineglasses are pinned for me to try soon.
