Halloween is a time for fun and celebration for many families. How does “The Pioneer Woman” star Ree Drummond celebrate this festive time of the year? This is what she told her fans about how her family organizes Halloween festivities.
What Halloween was like when Ree Drummond’s children were young
In the fall edition of “The Pioneer Woman” magazine, Drummond told her readers what Halloween was like when her children were very young. She said that she and her husband, Ladd, would go outside and take their little ones. Here’s how she described the sweet moments she had with her children. “When the children were little, Ladd and I went into town and took them with them. I have the best memories of wearing them in their costumes and even pulling them through the neighborhoods in red wagons, “said Drummond.

We interrupt our regularly scheduled cowgirl floral attire to bring you this outside-the-elevator, slightly boho selfie. These jeans are a size smaller than I’ve worn for (quite) awhile and even though they were skin tight (as you can probably see) and a long top was required, they buttoned. I attribute this to spending the last month only allowing myself to watch a show I’ve been wanting to watch (one that I’m not going to trivialize by inserting it into this fashion and fitness post) if I did so on my rowing machine. It just took two full seasons for the buttoning to be successful. In other news, Elisabeth Moss is everything.
Now that her children are older, Drummond is not pulling her children in a small red car. She also does not decorate her house because she lives so far that no one would see it, according to her column in the magazine. Instead, the Drummonds celebrate Halloween at The Pioneer Woman Mercantile with a big party. “I love the idea of some fun Halloween fun in a small town,” Drummond tells her readers. Halloween is important for the Food Network star because it is the day that The Mercantile first opened its doors in 2016. This is part of the reason that celebrating Halloween is so important to Drummond.
There’s a Halloween costume contest at The Mercantile
One way to celebrate this time of year is to hold a Halloween costume contest at The Mercantile. The magazine highlighted one Mercantile visitor who spent three months planning her 1950s-inspired costume. The preparation for the Mercantile Halloween party starts more than two months in advance. Part of the preparation goes to ordering pumpkins for their decoration station.
The Mercantile employees dress to impress in their Halloween costumes
Dressed in a Halloween costume is not just for the kids. Mercantile employees also dress best in Halloween because they don’t decorate the inside of the store. However, there are a few rules for what they can and cannot wear on this day. “We don’t usually decorate in the store, so the staff is the decoration,” Drummond tells her readers. However, this freedom to dress comes with a number of small print. “Nothing too risky and nothing so hairy that it would be unpleasant for restaurant guests,” says Drummond. It is great that Drummond has its restaurant visitors in mind. We can’t imagine what it would be like to stare at a large hairy costume before a meal.
Halloween goodies: pumpkin spice cereal treats
Halloween is not complete without some spices with pumpkin herbs. At the end of her Halloween description on The Mercantile, Drummond shares a delicious recipe for pumpkin herb grain treats. The magazine “The Pioneer Woman” does not say whether Mercantile employees will serve this during their celebration, but we cannot imagine a Halloween party without this tasty snack. This treat contains 1 ½ sticks of butter, three bags of marshmallows, 18 cups of crispy rice cereal and 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice.
