Throw the Perfect Halloween Bash With Oriental Trading

     I am beyond excited that the holidays are finally coming back around! From parties and gift, to tricks and treats Oriental Trading is always my go to company for a good time. This year I have gathered up some of my favorite Halloween goodies from them and I wanted to share with you. After all it never hurts to squirt a little more fun into a holiday does it?


Of course having 3 children my favorite part is seeing them happy. Treats for them, they seem to always say at least, and who can blame them! I love candy as much as the next guy, but I hate shopping in stores.lol Oriental Trading offers candy in bulk of some of your favorite varieties! From Gummy Bear to Taffy, and Tootsie Rolls of course. What makes it even more fun is I can always find a cute container that is just perfect for serving my guest. I absolutely love these little pumpkin buckets. I use a couple just for my goodies, and since they come in a 12 pack I have plenty left for our smallest party guests. Gummy Eye Ball anyone??

 

From the scary to the silly Halloween guests come in all frights..So I decided to pick up table wear to please all the little ghouls in my house. The Frankenstein cups come in a 12 pack with 6 different colors and the silly monster plates have 4 silly friends to join your frightening feast.

 

As a mom we know that parties aren't all about what is going on at home, school brings tricks and treats and fun galore. This year instead of candy we decided to send a frightening cup of festive pencils, a cup for each teacher and a pencil for all. These will be sure to please, and are allergy free ;)


So remember when it is time for your little Ghouls to celebrate and go batty, Oriental Trading is filled with fun gifts, games, treats, and more. You can see them all HERE. Don't forget you get free shipping on orders over $49.

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
