Autumn Baking


Oh, autumn is so lovely! It's all about the good things: sharing, warmth, family, thankfulness, and God.

And Halloween, but us 'churchy' types tend to gloss over that in favor of "Trunk or Treat" or "Nut Night" or similar church-directed activities. Don't get me wrong, I'm all about church-directed activities, and I myself enjoyed many a "Nut Night" dressed as a clown, or a bunch of grapes (that was a moment of genius on my mom's part, not gonna lie). 



All of that is to say, I generally don't 'celebrate' Halloween per se, but I'm not above some orange pumpkin muffins with Halloween-y themed decorations. Like fall leaves cupcake liners, cemetery gate-inspired cupcake holders, and spiderweb napkins. 


Now let me tell you my secret: These are PEANUT BUTTER PUMPKIN gluten-free muffins (using this recipe from King Arthur Flour and all-natural Sunspire Peanut Butter chips!)! And they are delicious. Now don't give away my secret, or I may have to release the bats & spiders! Muahahahahahahahahaha.

I got some other Autumn-y goodies at the Dollar Store:

The napkins & cupcake liners, of course. And some feather eyelashes cause I'm a dork and I want to try them (and because boyfriend said he would laugh at me if I did), some pretty hair clips, Thanksiving cards & pretty stickers to seal them with (3 for $1)!
