introducing Trick or Treat

I’m so excited to share our new Trick or Treat Halloween collection with you this morning!

We shot this collection and our new harvest collection, which I plan to share with you next week, in late July. Both were photographed by my good friend Angie of Angie Arthur Photography and both on an actual working farm, Freeman’s Farm, not too far from my home. There was tons of rain and super hot days in July leading up to the shoot and then the day of was a mild 82 and beautiful. Thank goodness for us and for our little monsters!

This collection was inspired by traditional Halloween costumes. You know. The ones we wore as kids. Witches, mummies, Frankensteins (or Frankette in this case) and vampires. Okay, so maybe I was a princess a time or two… and maybe Strawberry Shortcake… but I digress.

I love Halloween, but I’m more of a “treat” kind of girl than “trick,” so I wanted to style a fun party without the fright. The farm turned out to be the perfect backdrop, a large white barn, raw wood interior, there were even a few real bats living in the barn. I’m glad to report that they didn’t come over to investigate.

For the table décor, we hung large pumpkin lanterns. 

I asked Sew Jewell to create table runners and chair backers monogrammed with the collection’s screech owl. Both are available in the shoppe with the rest of the collection and through Sew Jewell!

We designed an entire printables collection full of placecards, beverage wrappers, napkins rings, favor tags, cello toppers, banners, and much more!

We crafted several DIY ideas like the cauldron centerpiece and spider forks. I found mod orange and white polka dot tableware with black crepe placemats (both available in the shoppe). And the little glitter pumpkins holding the placecards are last year’s find from the dollar store.

For the dessert table, I raided the candy store. I mean, it is Halloween, right?! {innocent smile}.

And we invited guest’s in with a witchy grin.

For the cupcakes, playing on the name of the collection, we created “trick” and “treat” printable designs. You’ll notice that the “trick” cupcakes are a little wiggly. {wink}

We also created cello toppers, perfect for bulk candy confections that aren’t individually packaged or homemade sweets.

And we teamed up with our cookie partners at Sweet Tooth Cottage. As usual, their yummy butter cookies were to die for!  

Not to mention, owl-dorable. {I kill me!} Both cookie designs are available in shoppe with the rest of the collection (Baked, packaged and shipped from Sweet Tooth Cottage. Shipping cost included in the price.)

But my absolute favorite craft for this project…

are my monster pedestal candy dishes. Super simple to make and a great focal point for any spooky fun you have planned this season!

And last, but in no way least, 

are the fabulous costumes created by Sew Jewell, from the capes, to the skirts, to the mummy wrapping, it all turned out perfect! You can find the witch, Frankette and the vampire cape in her Etsy shoppe in the next day or so.

 And with all this cuteness, you must get tons of pictures so we created a few photo props just for the occasion.

Shop custom invitations, table decor, printables, custom cookies, table runners, and even t-shirts in the shoppe. And as always, I hope you’re inspired!
