Happy Halloween!

I made these for my company bake off. I was overzealous and made cheesecake and chocolate cake cupcakes - both from scratch (I'll post the recipes in another post). I'll let you know if I win! 

Made my costume easy this year - we were bank robbers. And FYI on these pants: Calvin Klein, $16.99 at Costco now - get them, they're divine! 


Made the mask with foam (so it fits on my face!)! Also stenciled the money bag - did it in maybe 15 minutes, turned out pretty decent. Also, rocking the orange nail polish - I read on Pinterest that if you spray wet nails with cooking spray it dries them, I skeptically tried this and it worked!

Living room: 
Here's a synopsis of my Halloween decor - I'm going to ahead and say I did a pretty bang up job for our first year, got my junk together!


Front porch & pumpkins:

Used a drill to get cute holes in my chevron pumpkin! Also, made the hole in the back for easier candle lighting! 

Husband made a Miami Heat pumpkin - he did last year and they won the championship, so he had to again!
