but before it's entirely too late to be relevant, i figured i'd highlight a few more cool things you could do before november is upon us:

poisoned candy apples via simply delicious
these would look eerily awesome on any snack table with that liquid shine tempting guests to take a bite.

geometric ghost boxes via mr. printables
squee! these ghosts are adorable, and the use of waxed paper is a genius way to suggest translucence.
|image (c) say yes|
diy boo bags via say yes
yet another entry in the "cuuuuute!" category, these little sacks are sweet enough to make up for how involved they'd be to create en masse.
|image (c) make it & love it|
pumpkin jars via make it & love it
and then there are these bad boys. points for up-cycling, but the process could probably be simplified by using a different type of paint and eliminating the wire handles.
as ever, my grand plans for an excellent halloween season have been overshadowed by the reality of being a grownup: strands of colored lights are up, a small tablescape is on display, candy corn is in the house, and pumpkin marshmallows have topped all my hot chocolates, but the i haven't taken the time and energy to do everything i'd hoped. better get cracking on the cookie-baking and party-planning this coming weekend.
