I recently hosted a Fall Fete, or festive celebration.
Hon, you know how much I love a theme. And baking. Combining my favorite season with decor and dessert energized me more than usual. The morning after the Get Together, we drove through the stunning Lehigh Valley to visit one of our college daughters. I guess I was still buzzing from the night before because, when I ordered coffee with lunch, the Barista said, “Decaf for you?”
Look what I found at Trader Joe’s. I’d never heard of pumpkin trees before, but apparently that’s what those branches with real, mini pumpkins growing on them are called.
I couldn’t resist this Haunted House Kit from Williams-Sonoma. Orange icing inspired the Decorate-Your-Own-Cupcake Station. The flavor of the icing is…
…candy corn! And the Hershey Kisses aren’t chocolate, they’re pumpkin spice! So much yumminess!
You can bet I tried a little of everything!
