This weekend we visited the local bakery in Fort Worth. It’s called Blue Bonnet Bakery. And if you haven’t visited in a while, you should, not just on Halloween, but any time of year. They are in a newly renovated space that I just adore!
It’s an old Church. I’m guessing Methodist. The ceilings are high and there is even stain glass. You can cruise the cases, and then sit in a pew to eat lunch (or cookies).
We did both. We got cookies and cupcakes. We, also, ate lunch in the altar on a pew bench.
The view from our spot gives you an overlook of the whole bakery. I don’t know about you, but there is something about bakeries. The delicious smells. The warm cases of cookies. The beauty of display cakes, and every decoration screams celebration.
It’s hard not to be happy in bakery.
It was a delicious site (sight?). We enjoyed every morsel of our Halloween “treats”.
We enjoyed the lunch part too – Turkey clubs and PB&J sandwiches.
Later that evening, Jason, Sydney’s boyfriend Brandon, and I, headed to Six Flags over Texas to see Sydney at work. A place my beautiful daughter has been every weekend in October.
Wearing a clown mask.
Looking like this……
Scaring the wee out people.
It’s not just a haunted house. It’s a 3D haunted house. You get to wear
goofy scary glasses.
It wasn’t too scary, although, those clown masks were very creepy! But the 3D art on the walls lit with black lights was outstanding. We found Sydney and almost hugged. Scared the people behind us to death. They thought she was going to touch them too. It’s really funny because, she is so tiny in that giant clown mask. I can imagine being scared of her. LOL.
I had not been to Six Flags during Fright Fest before. It was way cool. The place was decked out. This picture is a spider’s nest up in the trees.
The park was packed. Sorta like Mardi Gras on Halloween. I have never seen so many people at Six Flags before. Sydney said 32,000 were there Saturday night. We were going to ride the Titan, but the line was three hours long.
I think we will ride another time.
We went home to our cookies and cakes. 🙂
I hope you all have a FABULOUS Halloween!

What a novel concept of the bakery at the church. The stained glass…stunning. Cookies looked delish! And the Halloween Fest looked spooky and fun!
Mmmm…cookies. I’ve always wanted to visit an amusement park decorated for Halloween.
To reiterate: Mmmm…cookies.
Where are the apples, raisins, bran muffins, broccoli and flavored vitamins? No wonder no one comes by here.
Drooling. Man, this post should have come with a “Not Sage for dieters” warning, LOL. I think I gained 20 lbs just oogling it. 😉
Safe not sage…ugh.
What a great trip, what great pics, and what great pups (sorry munchkins!) The goodies look scrumptious but if you want to try something with a little less sugar in them try the recipes at the end of my post “Octoweenfest.” Head of ghost—bat’s eyes—lady’s fingers. Yum? Yum?
That is interesting . . . . a bakery in a church. Well, anything in a church besides a church is interesting. Yummy looking treats.
That is nice you went to see Sydney.
Sorry your Rangers lost.
This looks like can awesome bakery. You pictures were making my mouth water! I’m inspired to do some Halloween baking next year.
