Friday Round Up For WinifredBean.co

It can be argued that October is the best month of the year. Crisp autumn air fills your lungs as you stroll under the fire-hued leaves of apple trees. And even if picking apples and watching the leaves change colors doesn’t appeal to you, few can resist the festivities (and candy) that come along with Halloween. Skip the bags of chocolate and whip up a batch of ooey-gooey cupcakes in your cauldron. Slip into something a little more spooky and check out Martha Stewart’s amazing do-it-yourself Halloween makeup tutorials. Let the season inspire your table with painted pint-sized pumpkins as centerpieces. Add flare to your autumn wedding with gorgeous blind press invitations, and an unforgettable “guest book”—have guests sign blank Jenga tiles to create a fun and unique way to remember your special day!
