Astrid Costume | How To Train Your Dragon

I love my daughter. When she commits to a Halloween costume she doesn’t change her mind. So as I was putting the finishing touches on her costume last year she informed me she wanted to be Astrid for this year. So I had a whole year to mull it over and plan. But of course who needs a year, when you can get it done in one long weekend right?

Halloween Décor & Glittered Pumpkins

I love the Fall – and the awesome holidays that come with the cooling temperatures. Back in the day, my mother used to throw Halloween parties for the neighbourhood kids where we traipsed through cardboard mazes, stuck our fingers in bowls of witches’ eyeballs and monster brains, and of course there was the food. My dad worked a lot, so having him come home early to help us carve the pumpkin was always really special – and family pumpkin carving is a ritual my husband and I continue with our boys.

I’m not ready to host the neighbourhood yet…but I have come across some pretty awesome food and décor ideas online that I can’t wait to try out in a year or two. Here are a few project ideas to check out if you’re planning a Halloween bash for your little ghouls this year – and one project I just couldn’t pass up trying (with my own spin of course!).

Viking Birthday Party I Toothless Cake & Loot Bags

Continuing on with the Viking Birthday Party, I didn’t want to go completely over the top with the How to Train your Dragon theme, but including Toothless made my daughter extremely happy. Beautiful cakes are not as hard as you might imagine. Fondant is like making a cake with plasticine, armed with Youtube, a bit of time, and the proper tools, even aspiring cake decorators such as myself can pull one out of a hat. This cake took me 8.5 hours from start to finish.
