Wow, getting back to school this year has been a really FUN CHALLENGE! For the first time I am not teaching preschool but have a class of kindergarten and first graders, instead. It is going very well but I have to create all new lesson plans, as a result. That is my big excuse for being SO LATE in posting the Happiness Is Homemade blog party for you. But, never fear, there is still plenty of time to join in the fun. ALSO, remember that tonight at 7pm ET our weekly Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop starts and I do plan and being on time LOL!
Happy October OMG what a month! Welcome to Happiness is Homemade Ready For October. 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.
Upcycled Dollar Store Pumpkins, honestly how stunning is this craft? I could not stop scrolling when I saw this picture from ECCENTRICITIES BY JVG. These upcycled dollar store pumpkins for decorating this fall will be taking a space around the entry table all season long. I love how these turned out with the matte finish in white and pink colors.
Next up we head to a tablescape, does that surprise anyone? Artful Homemaking has created a beautiful Neutral Rustic Table. I was mesmerized with the detailing. Rustic neutral fall tablescape with white pumpkins, linen and wood accents. Decorate your table for fall with these simple ideas!
Next up is dessert or maybe a snack. Pumpkin Glazed Donuts, wow you had me at PUMPKIN. Walking on Sunshine Recipes has created the perfect fall donut with a box of spice cake mix and then topped with a homemade crumb topping and sweet glaze are baked in the oven using a donut pan. One of my favorite treats for Fall is enjoying pumpkin spice donuts. I think this recipe I’m sharing with you today for Pumpkin Glazed Donuts is better than the Dunkin Donuts pumpkin donut recipe because of the crumb topping and sweet glaze.
You guys, if you’re looking for a delicious, yet easy fall cocktail… this is it! It’s so simple, yet has all the elements to make you forget that fall really just means winter is on its way. The House on Silverado has created the most delicious looking martini, and I am betting it tastes just as great. Apple Cider Martinis, anyone else ready to see heck ya pour me one?
and today I am ending with Dinner, or supper depending on what you might call it. Fall comfort food at its finest. A Proverbs 31 Wife had me drooling over this white chicken chili soup. Is this not perfect for cool fall evenings? It’s easy, less than an hour start to finish and because the pot needs to simmer awhile, you have plenty of time to wash up the meal prep dishes and set the table!
