Catch up on all the latest goings-on from Hen and Horse Design, including our weekly round up of our posts and tons of Halloween inspiration!
Seriously, wasn’t it just October 1st? I’m sitting here writing my weekly round up and I’m thinking we’re looking at the end of October, Halloween, and November 1st. And what does that mean? It means Thanksgiving and Christmas are around the corner.
No need to worry my friends, it comes every year, and this year, let’s make it the brightest and most beautiful ever! But before we go there, let’s see what we were up to this past week!
What’s fall without some pumpkin baking?
This week has been a busy one over at the Roost! I tackled both pumpkin buns and pizzelle. The buns turned out beautifully and were so perfect for breakfast with a cup of coffee. I’ve made this family recipe several times before, and the pizzelle are a new twist on an old favorite. I use vanilla rather than anise! They were both a huge hit!
Finding New Ways to Make an Arrangement
Do you love finding new ways to use what you already have? I love finding new uses for things around the house and this week I put one of my latest flower pots to good use. After visiting Trader Joe’s for some fresh flowers, I filled it with some pretty berry stems, colorful daisies, and different types of greenery and it made such a pretty Fall arrangement. You can bet I’ll be using it again soon!
Andrew and the kids and I had a great time visiting a new brewery after my niece’s soccer game! One of my favorites was a beer that had passion fruit in it! If you are local, I’d definitely put Common Roots on your list!
Lastly, it was Dough Bowl Divas week so I decorated my dough bowl for Halloween. Do you have a dough bowl? Each month we share creative ideas for how to decorate a dough bowl. It’s so much fun. We’d love to have you join us! Leave me a comment below and I’ll be sure to add you to the list.

Time for Inspiration from my friends
Remember I mentioned Thanksgiving will be here before we know it? Melanie shared the sweetest turkey craft. This would be so fun to do with your children or grandchildren!
