Halloween Costume Contest

So if you are planning on getting dressed up with your spouse this year, check out these ideas! You might just find a costume idea that you never even thought to try! You can also check out some of our Dahling Divas and their hubby’s costumes from years past! Want more costume ideas?

We are starting THIS YEAR’S Halloween Costume Contest tomorrow!!  Be sure to check back for all of the details! {Super easy to enter….just find a creative picture of a past Halloween Couples Costume….and we will tell you what to do with it!}

Halloween Clue Style

Talk about a super fun and Spooky date night idea! Themed around Halloween and the game CLUE. Kiirsten has provided lots of great game ideas, treat ideas, AND super cheap gift ideas for the winner(s). Ending the night with a Tag Team Doughnut Race that looks like too much fun to pass up! So get your witch on (er…fabulous spooky hostess on!) and get to planning this hilarious date night with a group of your friends! (Oh, and did I mention this party requires everyone to dress up? Hello! It’s not a Halloween party without costumes!)

Black and Orange Party

Are you ready to part-ay!?! Black and Orange style, baby. We are throwing this Halloween party in style! If you are looking for some spooky (yet totally delicious) recipes for your upcoming Halloween bash…look no further. We’ve got you covered! We’ve got everything from Swamp Juice, to melon brain, to Crusty Mummy Fingers and so much more! Check out this post to make your Halloween party one that none of your guests will forget! *Note* If you want to make your food table super spooky like Kari did, try this decorating trick: use Halloween Moss to spread underneath some of your platters giving it a spooky feel.

Some Mummy Loves You

Want to do something fun, cute, inexpensive AND easy for your spouse and kids to kick off the Halloween season? Check out Erika’s adorable Some Mummy Loves You idea! All you need is some card stock, medical gauze, google eyes, and your favorite king size candy bar! Oh, and this fabulous tutorial, of course! Your spouse and kids will love this!

Create Your Own Pep Rally Date

It’s that time of year again…when the pig-skins get thrown around! Good ol’ football season is in full swing…so why not make it into a fun date night with your honey? Not everyone’s spouse is a big football fan, but Kristen certainly makes this into one fun filled night for everyone! Just check out her tail-gate eats, a game of football squares, how they get decked out for a football game, and how they get into the “Go, Fight, Win!” spirit! It’s a Win-Win!

A Magazine For My Man

This is THE perfect gift idea for your spouse! If you haven’t done one of these yet, your spouse will LOVE it! Tara created this fun magazine for her hubby’s birthday complete with articles submitted by her husband’s family and friends. Making it all the more special! This works for birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas, or just because! We love this idea because it’s not only fun, but it is something he will definitely KEEP and look at over and over again. Talk about wonderful memories!

The Wild Jungle Safari Date

Make your spouse King (or Queen) of the jungle with this Jungle Themed date night! Lisa M. really outdid herself on this date, creating 7 different clues for her hubby leading up to one unforgettable date night! Each clue gave him a gift which then leads him to the next clue! Such fun! You will find this date night to be just the thing to release the beast (er…wild side!) in each of you. (P.S. this would also make for an incredibly fun Halloween date night! Dress up your wild side and make this Halloween better than ever before!)

There you have it! Your Halloween holiday is bound to be exciting, fun, and memorable with these ideas. So get to planning! There’s no time to waste! We’ve given you the ideas now all you have to do is make it happen! By the way, I’m dying to know, out of all these ideas…which one(s) are YOUR favorite?
