Just like clockwork, it’s our favorite time of year again! The brisk chill in the air. The morning fog. The autumn leaves. Nature has clearly given her permission to pull on our Uggs, grab a mug of spiced cider, and curl up with some Netflix. But there’s one thing that really makes it our favorite… Halloween!
Looking for safe and fun Halloween activities? Look no further! Join us for an extra special My Petite Sweet Halloween! Come on over for an afternoon / evening of treats (no tricks, we promise!), including goodie bags, craft projects, and mini cupcakes waiting for you to decorate them.

To get you in the mood, we researched a few intriguing trivia bits about our favorite holiday. How many of these did you already know?
Jack-o-lanterns were originally carved out of turnips or mangelwurzels. (Yes, it’s a vegetable. Go ahead and Google it; we had to.)
The predecessor of trick-or-treating is called “Guising”, an Irish and Scottish tradition in which children dressed in disguise and went door-to-door asking for coins and food. To receive their prize, the children had to perform a “trick” such as a song or dance.
Over 10% of annual candy sales happen during the days leading up to Halloween.
Halloween is the United States’ second largest commercial holiday. Americans spend more than $6 billion each year on decorations, costumes, candy, and other Halloween items.
Now that you’re ready, grab your mangelwurzel and fly on over to show off your guise! Everyone is welcome. And costumes, of course, are encouraged.
