Pumpkin Cookie Party

Now, you guys know that we love to plan playdates for our littles and with a holiday like Halloween around the corner it called for all sorts of fun!! Since this holiday is all about the sugar, we thought why not add more?! I know we are crazy, haha!! But hey, if it involves baking and decorating cookies it’s worth the craziness, right?  We decided a pumpkin cookie party was in order and what can we say, it was a hit!  The kids had so much fun seeing all of the Halloween decorations and it really got them excited for the holiday, plus if you add cookies to anything they are bound to be happy!  This party was featured on Mini Style Blog yesterday, so head on over there to see more!

We set the tone with fun pumpkin shaped plates by The Duo Studio and personalized by Blot & Dot, they were a hit! And a keepsake they can keep for future Halloweens to come! Our table was full of pumpkins and gourds with funny sayings by Blot & Dot as well and lots of orange, black, white and copper!  The pretty textiles are from Boho Pillow and The Little Market and fun Fall flowers done by Flowers by Mae Mae.

It was a fun little afternoon to play and get creative, one of our favorite things to do!  Any time our kids can get their hands dirty and use their imaginations it makes our hearts happy.  These little ones loved decorating their own pumpkin cookies, and of course eating them too!

Fall Recipe – Pumpkin Panna Cotta

Along with Fall being our favorite time of year, it’s also a time when we can break out all the yummy pumpkin recipes.  The possibilities are endless, I mean there is pumpkin everything these days!! We recently worked with the amazing Collete’s Catering for a Halloween shoot that we will share with you soon and they brought the yummiest desserts!! One of them stood out in particular though, it looked so fab I had to ask what it was…Pumpkin Panna Cotta!!  Being a big panna cotta fan, I had to try it of course.  It was delish, so I asked them for the recipe and to my surprise it’s pretty easy to make!!

meganwelker-beijoshalloween-589

Ingredients

3 Silver Sheets of Gelatin

2 Cups Ice Cold Water

1 Cup Heavy Cream

13.5 ounces Coconut Milk

1/4 cup Water

 Directions

Bloom the gelatin in an ice cold water, set aside. Next heat up remaining ingredients until they come to a simmer.  Whisk them together and add the boomed gelatin. Continue to whisk until incorporated. Pour into small mason jars and then cool in the refrigerator.  The panna cotta will set in 4-6 hours, Enjoy!! meganwelker-beijoshalloween-599 meganwelker-beijoshalloween-604

There you have it…Easy right?? And it’s pretty too!! Hope we’ve inspired you to make some for yourself and families this holiday season!

Chaser Halloween Tees

Ok so Fall is one of our favorite seasons because it kicks off the holidays with a bang with one of the best…yep, you guessed it Halloween!!  We have a ton of fun stuff in store for you, but we decided to kick it off in style with a double whammy….Chaser and the cutest littles around. First of all, Chaser has the cutest kids line, and they do it right by taking funky prints and designing them on their softest tees.  That way your littles can wear these fun holiday prints without you feeling like they are wearing a cheesy halloween tee shirt.  When we gave the kiddos the options of what they had to choose from they went a little nuts for all these cute tees.  Check out our little style session with these babes…
