Japan Crate October 2020 Halloween Snack Box

Recently I re-subscribed to Japan Crate, a Japanese snack box. Since the next box’s theme was Halloween for October, I had to get it. ^^ It was filled with 18 different Halloween-type snacks, including a Lipton Creme Brulee beverage.

These boxes are so much fun! They are thoughtfully curated to a monthly theme, influencing the assortment and packaging.

With the boxes right now, there is an additional shipping fee using DHL, but because of that I got the box within days after being shipped. I also love the new shipping schedule; I actually get the box before the intended month. Although, I’m not sure that is so good since I enjoyed the treats before the season. ^^

Has anyone else tried Japan Crate?


Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween, everyone!  I hope your holiday has been fun.  For me, the day had been a busy one filled mostly with Halloween preparations.  Thankfully I did a majority of my seasonal decorations at the beginning of the month so it didn’t take too long for that. ^^;  I spent the day making pumpkin spice scones, carving pumpkins, roasting pumpkin seeds, tidying the house, displaying my Halloween teas, and finalizing everything before my guests arrived. 

For the party, everyone wore glow necklaces; watched the 1931 version of Dracula; ate pizza, scones and tea, and candy; then played a couple rounds of Tripoly (it’s lots of fun!).

My favorite part of the season (besides drinking hot cider and listening to Autumn music) has been assembling a collection of spoopy (spooky cute) accessories.  I have had so much fun getting Halloween accessories from Etsy sellers to get in the spirit of the season.  Besides, how could I say no to such deliciously spoopy jewelry?  They look so sweet on my dresser.

All in all, the party was a success.  Everyone enjoyed themselves and had their fill of sweets.  I most certainly did!

Have a fun and safe night! (^3^)

Cute Halloween Preparation

Hello, everyone!

It’s that time of year again when I prepare for another cute Halloween celebration.  Hosting a party for Halloween has become an annual event in my household, where there are plenty of cute decorations, seasonal teas, Autumn specific foods, fun games like apple bobbing, and quality company. (✿◠‿◠)

This year I decided I wanted to wear a cute Halloween outfit with likewise themed accessories.  The main element is a ‘spoop’ sweater I purchased on Etsy and these adorable necklaces, bracelet, and earrings.

For the party itself, This year’s theme is a Halloween tea party masquerade.  We will have a lovely spread of Autumn treats and sandwiches, snacks, and of course apple cider.  A bonfire with rainbow flames is in the lineup and outdoor apple bobbing.

One element I am planning to incorporate involves using a large pumpkin.  So I picked up one large pumpkin which will be turned into an ice cooler for pop, probably Dr. Pepper.  My favorite fall-time chips will be provided at the party, Rainbow Chips by Better Made.  The burnt taste is really yummy ​(っ◔◡◔)っ ❤

With this much planned, it leaves enough room for socializing and any other ideas I have.

What about you?  Do you have cute plans for Halloween?
