Halloween is one of our favorite times of year! This year, we are keeping the festivities going with some fun new ideas and I still plan on eating REESE’s peanut butter cups all October long. One of the things we plan to do this year is “Boo’ing” our friends and neighbors. This is a fun and easy activity that will surely become a tradition.
Little unsuspected surprises have become even sweeter these days. I love this idea of surprising your friends and neighbors. Basically, the idea is you leave a little bag or bucket of Halloween treats on their doorstep and encourage them to do the same to some of their friends. Walmart makes it easy to get all of your supplies in one place!
Below, I’m sharing how to create your own “Boo” buckets to “Boo” all of your friends and help spread the tricks and treats.
You will need:
Paper (for your “Boo” tags – you can download below using my free printable)
1.) Stock up on all of your favorite candies to fill your “Boo” buckets at Walmart. You can also find the buckets in the party section.
Fall is by far my favorite time of year! This past week I started adding some fall decor throughout our home. One of my favorite places to switch out the seasonal decor is our fireplace and mantle as it is the focal point of our family room. (You can see my post on how we whitewashed our fireplace here). I am in love with the way my mantle decor came out featuring this easy DIY fall garland. It was super inexpensive to make too as most of the things can be found at the Dollar Store.
Below I’m sharing my DIY fall garland and mantle decor so that you can
Thread the twine through the eye of your needle and tie a knot at the end.
Using your needle, puncture a hole through the leaf and thread the twine through. Next do the same with your foam pumpkins and acorns. You will need to exert a decent amount of pressure to thread the needle completely though the foam pumpkins and acorns.
Continue with whatever pattern you choose.
Once finished, cut the needle off the twine and tie each end.
Hang on your mantle, windows, doorways, or wherever you’d like.
I chose to go with more of a fall/harvest theme with pumpkins, leaves and flowers vs Halloween since I can keep it up throughout Thanksgiving but you can do whatever you like. And most of my mantle decor was $30 or less!

The farmhouse window panes and boxwood wreath stay up all year long and then I usually just switch out the other pieces as the seasons change.
I got the glass vases and faux flowers from the Dollar Store.
I love these black tapered candlesticks which you can leave up throughout

I recently popped into Old Navy to do a little fall try on session for you all. They had some great basics for layering for this season.
Here are some of my favorites from my Old Navy fall try on.

First up, I tried a pair of their wide leg jeans. I like that these are a high waist to tuck in that mom pooch. I would definitely wear these with a heeled boot or wedges to give some height.
I paired my basic jeans and top with this utility jacket. I love that it has a cinched waist for a more fitted look.
This corduroy skirt would be super cute with some brown tights or leggings underneath and a chunky scarf as the weather gets chillier.
So you all know my love for pantsuits runs deep and so obviously this one had to come home with me. It was on sale leftover from the summer for $16 in store. I paired it with a burnt orange cardigan for a fall look. I think it would look super cute with a white jacket or cardigan for spring/summer as well.
(As I sit here putting this together I realize I may be obsessed with burnt orange)
I fell in love with these distressed boyfriend jeans! I loved them so much, I went home and bought them online for $24.99. (They came to $45 in store).
Paired with a graphic tee and cardigan it’s a cute casual look.
