Next time you see black and green cake stands, don’t pass them by. These colors are great for springtime or paired with pink and of course for Halloween.

I looked over some of our past blog posts and rounded up a few more halloween treats for kids to add to your Halloween parties. Remember these owl cupcakes, witch cupcakes, and the candy centerpiece? Click on the picture to see the original post.

Here are some of my favorite Halloween party supplies this year. The traditional colors of black, grey and orange are always in style.
1. tissue fringe in black and orange | 2. polka dot candy cups in orange | 3. two tones of grey straws (have I ever mentioned that grey is my favorite color?) | 4. ornamental pumpkins | 5. bakers twine in mandarin and lemon drop | 6. polkadot pinwheels
Some of these items were donated, but you know I only recommend things I would personally use. Photo by Nicole Hill Gerulat.
Last year I posted some of my mom’s classic halloween treats for kids. I think they’re worth showing again, for those of you who didn’t see them last year. Yum! (Just click on a picture for the link to the original post.)

If you need some Halloween flower arrangement ideas, I have some cute ones to show you today. Using black and white flowers and incorporating hues of grey, you’re sure to instantly set a frightfully fun mood. And you don’t need to splurge on vases for these spooky decorations. Pull out your cans from the recycle bin and spray paint the cans black or leave them plain. You can even glue two cans on top of each other, just hide the seam with some ribbon (only the top can is used for flowers and water, but it gives the illusion of a taller vase). Then add feathers, mini signs, moss or painted branches to add interest to your Halloween floral arrangements. But most of all, have fun with it.
Here is a list of the flowers used in these arrangements: ranunculus, dusty miller, gerbera daisies, berzelia, scabiosa (with the centers painted black with acrylic paint), rudbeckia seed heads, football mums, spanish moss, and a manzanita branch.
