Halloween has never been my favorite holiday. But since having Maverick, I have found a reason to celebrate every holiday, and Halloween is no different. I love celebrating with festive PJs, fun accessories, and themed drinks and snacks. And so, I am sharing some festive finds and yummy recipes that are perfect for this spooky season.
Maverick is growing so fast, I feel like I cannot keep up with buying him clothes. By the time he wears something new, he’s already grown out of it. So, I am constantly grabbing him PJs, and I love getting festive with them. I like to get a new book with each set of holiday PJs that makes for a fun nighttime routine that he enjoys. It is these little traditions that make for the best memories. Amazon is a great place to find some fun pajamas for the kids (I personally like the brands Burt’s Bees and Leveret). Target, Carter’s, and Walmart also has some great options for any holiday. I am tagging some of my favorite Halloween PJs for the kids below.
Now I want to talk about these earrings. Y’all- I cannot get enough of these GORGEOUS statement beauties. Sometimes, festive accessories can be too cheesy, but these are not that. These Amazon Prime finds are my favorite this season. They are made very well, super durable, and all under $10 with free 2-day shipping! Plus, they are super similar to the Baublebar Halloween pieces that are $50! Such a steal! It is the perfect way to bring holiday cheer in a classy way.
I paired these skeleton babies with a gorgeous sheer polka dot blouse. You can also (pumpkin) spice up any sweater with your favorite version of these Halloween earrings and you are ready for trick-or-treating with the kids or enjoying Halloween spirits with friends.
Speaking of these Halloween spirits: let’s talk about cocktails! It is always so much fun to sip on something festive for any holiday. So for this Halloween, I have crafted a spooky beverage that will liven up any ghostly party. I like to call this purple drink Witches Brew, and can be made with or without BOOze.
Witches Brew Cocktail
- 2 oz Vodka
- 2 oz Cranberry Juice
- 1 oz Blue Curacao
- 2 oz Lemon-Lime Soda
Use your favorite vodka for my favorite version of this drink (Tito’s is my go-to). But to make it kid-friendly, turn this cocktail into a mocktail by replacing the vodka with more lemon-lime soda and use blue curacao syrup instead of the liqueur. For some added flare: place in a festive glass rimmed with colored sugar and place candy eyeballs in the drink. (I found these candy eyeballs at Target.)
