Boos & Breads Party


As you all know my roommate and I love to throw a themed party. And we also love bread. So we thought, why not combine our annual Halloween party with a bread party? So we did! We encouraged everyone to bring their favorite loaf of bread and my roommate bought a ton of gourmet butter from Bella La Crema in Lyons. It was a magic night. Would you host a bread party?

We even made a bread garland for people to take photos with!

DIY Halloween Candy Charcuterie Board

I've seen many a charcuterie board on Pinterest so I thought why not try it out with some of my favorite Halloween candies for a party? And it was a huge success! I think it's even easier than a meat and cheese version because it's just candy — nothing is going bad! What do y'all think?


sugar cookies, ghost cookies, mini snickers, reese's pumpkins, witch kit-kat, mini twix, rainbow sour ropes, sour gummy worms, candy corn, skittles, plastic pumpkin, wooden board

2021 Halloween Costume Ideas

It has been a while since I did Halloween costumes and I've been feeling inspired by some of the pop culture I've been consuming recently. One of my new favorite shows is Only Murders in the Building and I adore Mabel's clothing! As always Ina Garten and Moira (from Schitt's Creek) are style icons! The Grand Millennial look has been all over my TikTok and I love the bright colors, patterns and preppy aesthetic. Finally, I decided to re-watch Normal People this weekend...for the first time and oof it got me in my feels and made me want to dress like Marianne! What are you going to be this Halloween? Any of these providing inspo? — xoxo darling, Hayden

Happy Wednesday, and I yes I realize we are a lil late this morning! But I just had too many photos to share. I went to Dallas last weekend with my parents for the OU game...yeah that didn't go so well but we had fun. Then I have been really throwing myself into the fall spirit now that it has finally cooled off in Denver. I made more tomato soup this week because it just felt right. This weekend I'm headed back to Austin with my dad to beat OK State. How are y'all? — xoxo darling, Hayden
