House tour of Halloween Decorations {and a list of my favorite fall-o-ween activities}.

I'm pretty excited to check out The Simple Farm's Pumpkin Patch Friday October 17 8:30am - noon, with Waffle Crush and local artisan foods. {tickets for tour and kids activities sold out}.  I've attended workshops at the property and it's darling.  Hope the kids are just as excited as me to pick out some pumpkins and eat some waffles. 

We always go to the Desert Botanical Garden's Great Pumpkin Festival and this year I'm going to try and save on a membership and use a culture pass!

picked up these black calla lilies from Trader Joe's 

I really want to take the girls to Tolmachoff Farms for their Corn Maze now that they're both older and walking.  The maze is open in October and November.

Last year we spent Halloween at the Arizona Science Center.  This year they're hosting; Weird Science Halloween: Creeping, Crawling and Clawing Creatures! October 31, 2014 10 a.m.–5 p.m.  I'll probably go there with the girls again this year, if I can schedule it around work.

  2. Oh my! You're house is an absolute darling, and your taste for Halloween decor is amazingly classy. My favorites would have to be those bats/candle holders. Your mom sure is gracious, and I definitely think your aesthetic is inherited. Hahaha! Anyway, thank you so much for sharing that! All the best!
