Best of Live Pretty Halloween

Our Best Halloween Recipes & Tips

You may have noticed that Live Pretty has been a bit, well, slow in recent months.  It really is all my fault I’ve struggled with fitting blogging and managing this awesome site into my daily routine as a mom of two (not to mention some health challenges that completely took me off track).  So, before we move on, thank you to Rod and Beth for keeping it going and for all of their posts in recent months!

But, now that fall and the holiday season is upon us, and I am doing better managing it all, you will see more great Live Pretty stuff from us in the coming months. To kick us off though, I thought we would look back at some of our favorite Halloween tips and recipes that you can snag for your Halloween festivities.

Halloween Treats for Grown-Ups – Yep, gummy treats soaked in vodka. Yeah!     LP_DrunkenBears1-1024x690

Candy Corn Cookies – A little effort for an awesome homemade treat.


Chili Con Carne – It will be in the 80s here in Florida, and our trick-or-treaters will be a bit sweaty, but we will still inhale every last drop of this chili.


Black Countess Martini – A black vodka martini great to sip after the kids go to bed.


Candy Corn Gin – Perfect to help use up those post-Halloween candy corn sticking around.


Make Your Own Lamp Post Ghost – Grab a sheet, ribbon and some black paper and make the cheapest Halloween decoration around.


Spider-Web Dips – Easy to make with things you may already have in your fridge.


Easy Ways to Decorate with Gourds – Seriously, this is the only decorating I did this year.


Happy Halloween!
