Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 37

In the meantime, while juggling my porch and shopping, I created delicious, simple recipes to create with your friends and family!

Alright, friends, I won’t keep you a minute longer. Have fun with these decorations, recipes, and more!
Have a spooky Saturday, everyone!
A Personal Note from Janine
When our son was little, I was ecstatic to be a new mom, and I wanted him to experience all the holidays with tons of excitement and beauty! So, I decorated our Seattle craftsman’s bungalow to the nines. I mean, every nook and cranny was accounted for, and our house glowed orange and white on his first Halloween.
You see, we had many years of infertility treatment, and when we finally got the adoption process started, we were super antsy to become parents. So the first couple of years of my son’s life was a big celebration of all the holidays!
Back when my kiddos were little, I was younger and had tons more energy back then. So this meant that the house was an explosion of holiday decor.
I hate to admit that it was a common occurrence that I overloaded our electrical breakers and would trip it all the time.
Do you see a pattern of my obsessive personality?
Well, my son is now off to college, and I still enjoy decorating. And lucky for you, I’m sharing all my latest projects with you. I’m happy that I now have a creative outlet for all my decorating, crafting, and baking shenanigans.
So, pull up a cozy chair, and let’s hang out this Saturday morning!

My Favorite Things – Halloween Decor
Ghost Charcuterie Board
Spirited, sweet, and ready with treats, our stoneware Ghost-Shaped Platter makes a whimsical addition to Halloween festivities. Fill with appetizers, confections, or whatever you end up serving in a lively style.
When decorating for this season, I style my kitchen with cozy decors, such as these cloth napkins! But to be honest, these napkins scream Fall to me, so I knew I had to get them!
I have always been a fan of buffalo plaid print, especially when it’s orange because orange is one of the best Fall colors of all.
If you like to spice up your kitchen for the Fall, then check out these harvest cloth napkins!
This mud pie pumpkin pillow is the definition of Halloween! I mean, it’s super festive! If you know me by now, then you know I love pillows.

Here are deliciously cute pumpkin cupcakes that are the Halloween dessert to make from Tieghan!
The cupcake itself is my favorite spiced pumpkin cupcake made with brown sugar, pumpkin, and of course, plenty of pumpkin spice. And then there’s the frosting! It’s a simple cream cheese frosting.
It sounds like a delicious recipe to me that just so happens to be Halloween styled. Check it out!
My family and I are big fans of popcorn nights, especially with a spooky movie! Our favorite is caramel popcorn! What’s yours? If you love caramel too, check out my recipe that is too good to be true.
Seriously, though, this popcorn is microwaveable and can be served, so you don’t have to wait any longer to start your scary movie with friends and family!
Alright, I am a fan of decor. And since it’s prime time for a set, I present to you these paper rosettes for Halloween! These pieces are entertaining when having a party or a small get-together during this spooky season.

Here is a copycat recipe for the Starbucks pumpkin bread! This is very similar to the one you’ll find at a popular coffee shop! I don’t know about you, but I love to bake once the weather changes, and this recipe hits the spot.
Somedays, we aren’t able to run errands and grab the pumpkin bread from Starbucks, so why not make it at home instead? It saves time and hassle!
Enjoy a slice (or two) with a warm cup of coffee or tea and enjoy the change of the weather.
Come on! What are you waiting for? Let’s get cooking in the kitchen!

This Week’s Tip – Gingerbread Houses
Trader Joe’s Halloween Gingerbread Houses
Here’s a tip that’s related to Halloween and Christmas. So, Trader Joe’s sells a Halloween gingerbread house kit that is adorable.
I bought four today, but I’m not going to use them for Halloween.
You see, I’m planning on decorating them for Christmas. My one gripe about other gingerbread house kits is that the houses are too big for my mantel. Do you know what I’m talking about?
The gingerbread houses hang out over my shelf, and with one little move, the village could tumble over.
So, Trader Joe’s gingerbread houses are a ton shallower and perfect for my holiday decor.
I know it’s pretty early to think about the holidays, but these Halloween houses will only be in stock for a couple more days at Trader Joe’s!
Snag a few this weekend if you want to decorate one for Christmas!
Here’s a link to buy it online but it’s significantly cheaper if you can visit the store. I think I paid $7.99 for each house.
My Latest Obsession – Fall Doormats
I love a seasonal doormat, and I always dress up our porch with my crow one.
But one that is trending over on the blog is the “Hey, Boo” Doormat. It’s so cute and such an excellent alternative to my crow mat.
I love my buffalo plaid outdoor rug since it goes so lovely with my Halloween decor. It’s fun to layer your doormats and rugs to create a fun and inviting welcome to guests!
Hello, sweet friends! I hope you’re having a great Saturday so far. Thanks for sticking around to check out my helpful tips on how to decorate your house for Halloween! Hopefully you found some inspiration whether it’s baking a new recipe, crafting a new DIY or decorating your home with my style!
Have a great weekend, and stay tuned for more recipes, crafts, decor, and more!
