Moon toasts from the Witch party

I used moon cookie cutters for the toasts.
Cut the bread,
Place a thin layer of smoke salmon on top and a small cut piece of cucumber.
In France at Christmas time, we make salmon toasts. This is one of my favorites of all time.

Skeleton cake from The pirate party.

I used a cake mix but replaced the oil by Apple sauce and added 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon.
Cut the cake sheet to fit the cloche...The cake need to be frozen before you cut it !

2 layers...Frost with chocolate frosting...

I used Non-pareil sprinkles...Moved the cake on cake stand. The cake is still frozen, so very easy to move.

The skeleton marshmallow goes on top of the cake. 

Add some Jewelry.

Pumpkin carving Party!

This is one of my favorite Halloween book ! Miss Fiona's stupendous pumpkin pies by Mark Kimball Moulton.
This book is adorable and my inspiration for tonight's Pumpkin carving party !


Vampire Pumpkin...

In the book, the Witch has lots of carved Pumpkins....
She serves Pumpkin pie "a la mode" With vanilla ice cream and cherries on top !
Yummy apple cider ! Spider rings for the kids...
I used cute paper plates...

This is a great idea for a carving party...invite friends....carve the pumpkins outside and have pie "a la mode" and apple cider. Don't make it complicated !

Kritter Kondos are ideal for courtyards, balconies, campgrounds, beaches, hotels, parks and yards.   Carrying case is included and has a shoulder strap and handles for easy mobility.  Three pockets and a zipper pouch are on the interior of the carrying case for pet’s toys, food, blanket and bed.

Super practical ! And cute !

Check their page ! They are super fun !

If you have a weekly party, your link is on my side bar 24/7.

One time linking for Halloween:

Blogspot is not free!

Blogspot uses picasa to stock pictures...So you are using their web album....Then at some point you run out of space and.... they want money to by more is ok with me because my blog is like my family album souvenir....But WOW...That was a surprise! I guess nothing is free in this world...Even when they tell you it is...Did you know that ?
