One of our very favorite family activities is our weekly movie night. And snacks take a close second to the movie choice. Okay… sometimes it’s more important. {wink} Today I’m sharing one of our new favorite snacks, a Rice Krispies Treats M&Ms Trail Mix.

Easy Sew Halloween Placemat With Witch’s Hat Utensil Holder

Browsing around my JoAnn Fabric and Craft Store I stumbled on this darling witch silhouette design and was instantly inspired to make these easy sew placemats. And what do you think of my witch’s hat utensil holders?

Easy Sew Halloween Placemat with Witch's Hat Utensil Holder | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

I’m personally in love! They look so cute on my island bar. (We just painted the kitchen a silver gray. I need to load some pics for you!)

And the best part… they take no time at all. I made my placemats 18.5 x 13.5″. You’ll need (per placemat):

  • Witch silhouette fabric (with the seasonal fabrics), 1/2 yard
  • Silver glitter polka dot fabric (in general fabric, on the wall in my JoAnn), less than an 1/8 yard (smallest you can purchase)
  • Wonder Under (comes in a roll 15″ x 15 yards)
  • Gray thread
  • Ruffle, 1/4 yard (has a mesh backing)
  • Clear ruler
  • Cutter
  • Cutting mat
  • Optional: Stitch in the Ditch sewing foot, Sewing clips

Easy Sew Halloween Placemats with Witch's Hat Utensil Holder | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

Easy tutorial:

  1. Cut – cut out placemats (being careful to match up designs, I used her nose as a guide), 18.5″ x 13.5″
  2. Iron – iron Wonder Under to one side of fabric, line up and iron both sides together (thickens fabric without needing batting, could also use interfacing)
  3. Cut – cut out witch’s hats, 4 3.4″ across top and 7 1/8″ inches to tip
  4. Iron –  iron Wonder Under to one side of fabric, line up and iron both sides together
  5. Cut,  clip, sew – cut embellishment to length (slightly longer than hat), clip and use a large stitch. If you have a rubber stylus, use it to hold the ruffles out of the way.
  6. Measure, mark – measure placement on the placemat, mark
  7. Sew – with a .30 stitch, sew witch’s hat utensil holder in place
  8. Sew – with a .30 stitch, embellish the edge of the placemat, not necessary, but lovely

Tailgating – Easy & Creative Football Food

Who’s ready for some football! We are a football loving family and how better to get the excitement for the big game brewing than a little tailgating. Hebrew National beef frank hot dogs with all the fixins, cute football cupcakes, salty snacks… we just can’t get enough!

My kiddos prefer Hunt’s Tomato Ketchup and Gilden’s Mustard above all other topping choices. What about you? What is your favorite? Did you see my Hawaiian recipe… if not you have to try it. I’m still making it and summer is now on the out.

Tailgating Ideas | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

So let’s talk tailgating! Want to create a simple and fun tailgating spread? You’ll need:

For the table decor, here’s what I used:

  • black & white stripe napkins inside coffee filters (easy clean-up and inexpensive)
  • strip of indoor/outdoor “grass” carpet
  • plastic cups for condiments and plastic forks wrapped with washi tape
  • football ticket for food labels (handmade)

Little tailgating tip, keep your buns warm! We live in Ohio and although your frank is hot off the grill, a warm bun makes it all the yummier when you’re freezing! {wink}

Go ahead, get some Hebrew National franks and start planning this Saturday’s tailgate. You won’t be disappointed!

Hebrew National Recipes

With grilling season winding down (at least here in Ohio), everyone is craving an all-American hot dog. What makes a kosher hot dog different? It’s all about what makes the cut… and what doesn’t {wink}. Hebrew National is choosy about what goes into their franks – only 100% pure kosher beef so you know what you’re getting and they taste great. No artificial flavors, colors, fillers or byproducts. Just the way I like to feed my family!

As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and yes… always celebrate!

Just The WRITE Back To School Teacher Gift

Need a quick and highly appreciated back to school teacher gift? Hop over to Office Max ($5 off while supplies last!) and whip up this easy craft!

Just The Write Teacher Gift For Back To School | Kim Byers, TheCelebrationShoppe.com

 This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Office Depot, but all my opinions and experiences are my own. You know I’d have it no other way! #pmedia #inspirestudents Disclosure 

I’ve given many back to school teacher gifts over the years and yes, I’ve given my share of candies and sweets, but at the end of the day teachers need and want supplies for their class and for themselves. Educating a group of 20 – 30 kids needs organization!

So this year I whipped up a gift with Office Max. These are all things I use in my own office that help me to stay on top of my latest project and let’s face it… keep everything pretty in the process.

I have a few favorites by the way:

  • Sharpie Clear View Highlighters (because I color coordinate my “to do” lists once I write them out),
  • EXPO Neon Dry Erase Markers (because they work great on this clear clipboard for daily inspirational quotes… as well as on windows because my children steal them… which might be fun for teachers when they want to decorate their classrooms for a special lesson!), and
  • PaperMate Black Pearl Erasers (because I use a lot of mechanical pencils and I need a great eraser… yes… I do erase while sketching ideas {wink}

I was short on time (isn’t every mom!), but I still wanted it to be pretty so I punched out a paper tag, wrote a pun-intended note, used fun tape to attach all the “write” tools to the bottom of the clipboard… and my favorite part, added a honeycomb apple.

It’s just a mini round red honeycomb I picked up a few months back and I used the EXPO Neon green marker to draw a cute little leaf. And that stem tag is from my free back to school party collection. Make sure you download yours!
