The weather has been beautiful and the skeleton crew, aka, Rod and Rowena,
decided some alfresco dining was in order!
Halloween is a week away and Rowena set a festive table
She pulled out her new Johanna Parker Halloween tablecloth,
which coincidentally matches her apron!
She packed her favorite picnic tins, filled with Halloween treats.
They’re serving as a centerpiece for the table,
along with a smiling metal Jack-o’-lantern.
Rod and Rowena are both wine enthusiasts.
Sometimes Rod just wants to drink wine and pet his dogs . . .
Bona Lisa and Bone-ita.
And on special occasions, Rowena loves indulging in
Fright Night Cellars is their favorite red blend, purchased on their last visit to
the California wine country.
Rowena decided to embellish the wine bottle with
one of her DIY Halloween Napkin Rings.
Rowena likes to keep the ‘Happy’ in Halloween
and doesn’t like anything too scary . . .
Or too spooky.
When it comes to Halloween, she and Rod both
are all about the treats!
She and Rod love to eat candy corn by the handful.
Candy corn is easily Rod’s candy of choice.
This mason jar of candy corn will be gone in no time!
Rowena’s a little worried about Rod, as he can’t seem to keep any weight on,
so she picked up some other candy treats to tempt him . . .
Let’s see what she packed. . .
Chocolate skulls and skellies!!
Rod’s grinning from ear to ear with no worries of tooth decay!
He can’t wait to sink his teeth into a Butterfinger Skull!
Rowena is looking forward to her favorite mini candy bar,
a Kit Kat Breaking Bones White Creme Candy Bar.
They have the cracking of crispy wafers and the frightful flavor of bone-white creme!
Rowena says it’s not Halloween without Halloween Oreos in 5 spooky designs. . .
She always picks up an extra package to make
And it’s not Halloween without some Peeps!
Rod loves to roast the Marshmallow Ghosts Peeps by the fire pit. . .
And Rowena loves making Ghostly Peeps Brownie S’mores. . .
And it’s tradition to warm up with Halloween Peeps Hot Chocolate.
The temperature is on the rise and it’s going to be 76 degrees
on Thursday and 80 degrees by Saturday,
so Rod and Rowena are planning to go for
Rod refers to Rowena as his ‘Hallo Queen’ but
Rowena is a self-declared ‘Pontoon Queen’.
They both enjoy a boat ride and lake life!
Rowena can’t believe that Halloween is a week away
and Thanksgiving, just a month away from yesterday!
Rowena moves a lot slower than she used to, and decided she needs to get started
on her Thanksgiving preparations immediately!
Just the thought of all that grocery shopping, cooking and cleaning
makes her want to rest her weary bones.
Behind the scenes:
I’m ready to rest my weary bones too. ;)
