Trick or Treat! You’ve Been Booed Halloween Printables

Last year was our first year living in our house and one day in October we came home from running errands to find out we had been booed! The idea behind being “booed” is that someone leaves a basket of goodies at your doorstep on the sly at some point during the Halloween season with a note letting you know you’ve been booed. You’re then supposed to pass along the fun by booing another family, all done anonymously. Today I’ve teamed up with HI-CHEW and the super talented Isabela of La Lu Isa to create these really happy and barely spooky Halloween printables so you can boo all your neighbors and officially be the coolest kid on the block! You can download them here, then just print on card stock and trim. Fashion together a basket or two loaded with your favorite HI-CHEW flavors (mine are mango and strawberry!) and a bunch of fun Halloween paraphernalia and you’ve got all the right moves.

Caramel Apple Sangria

With Halloween falling on a Saturday this year, I thought a festive, seasonal drink for the grown-ups seemed only appropriate! Along with my friends at Dr. Oetker, I’m sharing this utterly delectable caramel apple sangria, perfect for hosting a crowd or for enjoying when you get back from canvasing the neighborhood for candy. We live in the best trick or treating neighborhood in the city, so I plan to offer a splash to friends as they drop by with their kiddos. Now that, friends, is my kind of treat!
