It’s getting to be that time of year again, when little ghosts and goblins are ready to take over the streets with their pumpkins, but in our house, Halloween is a month long celebration! We love spooking up our old house (it was built in the late 1800s, so there are plenty of creaks and groans!) and getting into the spirit!
We have a LOT of Halloween traditions, ranging from costume parties at the barn with our horses, to moonlight rides, and trips to the pumpkin patch. Our favorite go-to Halloween spot is Pumpkinville, which has amazing pumpkin donuts and pumpkin ice cream in addition to hayrides, corn mazes, and tons of fun for the whole family. It’s a lot of fun to pack into one month! Plus, with school in full swing, this means we are a family on the go, so this year, we looked to NESTLE® to help us out in making it easier for us to head out for Halloween fun, but also help our formal dining room look super scary and ready for Halloween!
Putting this awesome table display and dinner together was super easy. I picked up the tablecloth last year on sale, and we had our cake stands, but then we headed to Walmart to pick up some quick and easy Halloween decorations, and some yummy treats from Nestle!
We were able to pick up everything we needed for a pre-Pumpkinville celebration! We grabbed a STOUFFER’S® Family Size Entrées (Meat Lovers Lasagna – YES PLEASE!), TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Cookie Dough in Halloween Chocolate Chip, and NESTLE® Jumbo Assorted Fun Size Candy!
While I got to decorating, my teenage daughter was able to make this cookies, and pop the lasagna in the oven! It’s so quick and convenient that she is able to do it with no problem, which really lets me focus on getting done with decorating and other plans before we head out for Halloween fun.
I started with filling this adorable Trick or Treat bowl with the entire NESTLE® Jumbo Assorted Fun Size Candy. The idea is that this will still be around to pass out to trick or treaters, but between you and me, I don’t think my husband is going to let that happen! But that’s part of the fun – buying Halloween candy early and then having to restock at the last minute!
By the time I had our decorations arranged, our STOUFFER’S® Family Size Meat Lover’s Lasagna was ready to go! This is such an easy, easy way to have dinner on a day filled with Halloween fun – there is NO prep, no dirty dishes created, and no clean-up. And they are SO tasty! Everyone in our family absolutely loves them!
And you can’t forget dessert! Even with all of the yummy NESTLE® candy around, it’s nice to have a warm dessert on chilly fall evenings, and is ANYTHING better for Halloween than TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Cookie Dough in Halloween Chocolate Chip? These have the same yummy, gooey, chocolately goodness that you can only get from NESTLE® TOLL HOUSE®, but with fun orange chocolate chips! Add an adorable ghost platter, and you have yourself a gorgeous, quick and easy meal, complete with dessert to help you get out the door and on to Halloween fun!
