I received a Ceramic Halloween Cookie Flower Cauldron for review from Cheryl’s. No other compensation was received, and opinions are my own.
This weekend kicked off Halloween Week, with parties, costume contests, and other festivities great and small that will continue right up until Thursday night. If my Facebook and Twitter feeds are any indication, I’d say that Halloween is a frighteningly fun occasion that is pretty much adored by everyone, kids and adults alike. In fact, I’d even wager that Halloween gets more fun as you get older and have to find new ways of getting into the spirit that don’t involve being turned away from house after house for being too old to trick or treat.
Halloween is haunting just around the corner, but if you’ve got a Halloween-obsessed, lover of everything spooky in your life, or fit the bill yourself, you’ve still got time to explore and indulge in the sweet side of Halloween that won’t leave you rummaging through last year’s stash of picked-over seasonal candy.
Cheryl’s made my Halloween a little sweeter by generously sending me their Ceramic Halloween Cookie Flower Pot.
Can we just take a moment to marvel at the presentation of this Halloween cookie flower bouquet?
The pictures in this post were taken immediately after taking the bouquet out of the large brown cardboard box it was shipped in. The entire piece was wrapped three times around with thick bubble wrap and not one cookie flower was out of place. It looked amazing as soon as I put it on my kitchen table, and it really adds something unique and fun — not to mention delicious — to my table for the holiday.
The cookie flower bouquet consists of 12 cookies — 8 buttercream frosted cut-out cookies and 4 sugar cookies, each perfectly decked out for the Halloween season, shaped and decorated with ghosts (seen in more detail below), black cats, trick or treat bags, pumpkins, and full moons with bat sprinkles.
While we have really been enjoying Cheryl’s cookies, especially the buttercream frosted cut-outs, my favorite part of this bouquet is the ceramic cauldron. There are so many things I can use this for (candy dish, planter for fall-colored mums, really, the list writes itself) and it will undoubtedly be a part of our Halloween decor for years to come.
Also available at Cheryl’s for Halloween is their new Boo to You Gift Box that arrives with a frighteningly delicious assortment of buttercream frosted Halloween cookies, chocolates, hand decorated crunchy sugar cookies, and $5 Cheryl’s Reward Card.
