On a trip to Salem a few weeks ago, Andrew and I stumbled upon the most magical graveyard. It is where a lot of the witches and judges from the Salem Witch Trials are buried. I am so sure it is haunted, the feeling being there was quite spooky. And if you look closely, you can see glowing orbs in these photos. Certainly the unrestful spirits of the accused witches of centuries past... or maybe it's just a trick of the light and Halloween. Also be sure to check back soon for a simple guide to visiting Salem- think avoiding the touristy stuff and all the best photo spots and shops.

What You Need;
-mini white pumpkins
-fine tip sharpie
-wire
-flowers (I used dried babies breath)
-leaves
-modge podge (rubber cement could work too)

What To Do;
-Draw little faces onto the pumpkins.
Tip; practice first on paper and lightly sketch with a pencil onto the pumpkin.
-I did smiling ones, sleepy ones, winking ones, 
and some ghost ones- perfect for Halloween.
-For the crowns, cut the wire to a length that fits around and sits on top, overlapping a bit.\.
-For the flower crowns wrap the wire around the flower stems and then wrap the ends around each other to secure.
-There are two ways to attach the leaves to the wire,
-By weaving the wire through the leaves, and secure the ends by wrapping.
-Or by folding the leaves over the wire and securing with modge podge (press under a book to dry)
then secure the ends.
-Place the crowns on the pumpkins and display!
-These are perfect for your Halloween or Thanksgiving displays!

The perfect fall date, pack a picnic basket with blankets, wine, jars, and a fall cheese plate. Head to the river at golden hour. And don't forget the sunflowers, and your favorite Free People dress.
Tips for the perfect fall cheese board;
Load up on your favorite cheeses! Using a variety of textures creates a dynamic cheese board. Soft Saint Andre (or Brie) and even softer Goat Cheese with Hard Gouda and Harder Cheddar gives a big variety. (Variety means everyone is happy!). Honestly cheese and fruit is my favorite combination. Add seasonal fruit, such as, figs(- the best!), peaches, apples, and grapes. Mix in dried fruit, such as cranberries. Nuts! Crunchy pairs well with the fruits and cheeses. If you are interested add olives and charcuterie- I hate both so I opted out. And a mix of crunchy crackers and chewy french bread. Make sure you have proper knives to slice with.
I spray painted cardboard to resemble a chalkboard, love the way this looks. If you do too, be sure to add a food safe seal, or cover with parchment paper or plastic wrap. And of course, pair with your favorite wine. We chose a spicy full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon to offset the sweet fruit and strong cheese. Hand calligraphed labels for the jars and a hand done menu are the finishing touches. Make your own label by cutting gingham blue patterned paper into a tag shape, punching a hole, and attaching a string. Oh! And flowers, lots of flowers!
