Gift Guide – Food, Fun and Décor for an Adult Halloween! #BBNshops


Great food and decorations geared to adults.

These items would be great for a cozy dinner for 2 on Halloween night. The food is delicious and quick to make so after the Trick-or-Treaters leave slip into these Halloween themed accessories and serve a delicious dinner of Beef Wellington in just 35 minutes. Check out those earrings! I would wear them anytime not just for Halloween. The cheese dome would fit right in with any rustic décor year round. The Honey & Truffles and Nut Sampler would make good gifts for any occasion. These decorations can be used year after year.

  1. Ceramic luminary – No need for all that carving, and slimy pumpkin innards. Use this classic ceramic pumpkin year after year. Get several, for a beautiful display. Via Pottery Barn.
  2. Flickering pumpkin light – Never mind candles, these are much safer, and work in all kinds of seasonal luminaries. Via Spirit Halloween.
  3. Pre-lit ghoul – If you go all in for terror. Via Walmart.
  4. Halloween hostess apron – Sheer. Green. With a skull embellishment. Wear it over black yoga pants and a tank top for no-fuss Halloween attire. Via Walmart.
  5. Skull and tassel earrings – They dangle, they frighten, need we say more? Could be the start of quite the tradition. Via Nordstrom.
  6. Skull and roses underwear – Because we know you care about the details, and when you put together a special event for your beloved, you don’t hold back. Via Neiman Marcus.
  7. Lined basket for trick-or-treaters – Just because you’re focused on your significant other, doesn’t mean you can’t welcome trick-or-treaters with a special basket of candy. Via World Market.
  8. High, antlered cheese dome – Not to be forgotten, something dramatic for entertaining long after Halloween is past. Via Neiman Marcus.
  9. Branch-look cheese spreader – A special cheese knife makes cheese and crackers into an event. Via Sur la Table.
  10. Frozen Beef Wellington – 35 minutes in the oven, and fancy dinner is pretty much done. Add some salad, bread, you’re set. Via Omaha Steaks.
  11. Black bleeding taper candles – What would a romantic dinner be without candles? What would Halloween be without a little was gore? Via World Market.
  12. Honey & truffles – In Napa Valley, they always serve you honey with your cheese. It’s delicious! Via Sur la Table.
  13. Nut sampler – The final component of a gourmet cheese board is always an assortment of nuts. This sampler offers 4 different kinds of roasted almonds. Via Abe’s Market.

Homemade Dog Cake Recipe – Close To Home

Homemade Dog Cake Recipe – Close To Home

Our golden retriever, Chloe, turned 3 last week, or I guess technically 28 in dog years. If you have been reading this blog at all you know she is one of the family and we often will pick travel destinations so we can bring her along. While she is not new to homemade dog treats and homemade Doggie cakes I picked a new homemade dog cake to try for this birthday. No dog party this year just stopped over at her boyfriend’s house and shared a slice of our dog cake. I adapted the recipe I found on and came up with this smaller version for the two dogs. The cake takes no time to make and I made it the day before just knowing we had a busy day planned on her birthday. Simply mix together the dry and wet ingredients in a bowl and…Read More
