Halloween's Here!

Halloween's here and Sandy is gone!  There's still tons of debris on the streets, but I think Trick or Treating will still be happening!

Last weekend we had a Halloween party to celebrate.  Here are some pictures of my spooky table set up.

And here I am dressed as a spider in between the food table and bar set-up, great place to be : )  My spider legs are made out of two stuffed pairs of pantyhose held on by a belt, pretty easy diy costume.

I forgot to take a close-up of the bar area, but I had red wine labeled as blood and white wine labeled as urine, I know, disgustingggg.  And my sis made some Vampire Juice that was also up there with some festive chevron straws.  Also, forgot to take pictures of all the great desserts, Frakenstein cake, owl cupcakes and graveyard trifle.  Oops.

Even though I complain about getting a Halloween costume every year, I do love the holiday.  Happy candy eating everyone!

Less Fall, More Spooky!

After the hubby and I decided to have a Halloween party, I thought I would spook up the house a little bit.  I really like the black and white mantle from Hi Sugarplum!, so I went to Michael's to find some bats.  And then I got home and went bat crazy.

They are everywhere.  I also continued the black and white theme with a striped rug I had bought on clearance from HomeGoods a couple months back.  Very Beatle Juice-ish.

Then I put spiders and skeletons wherever I could.

I've had all the party stuff out on the kitchen table for the last week or so.  Next week I will show you how it all came out.  Happy Halloween!

Fall Time!

Now that it's October I feel okay about showing my Halloween decor, even though I had pumpkins out weeks ago.  My fall mantle this year is a lot cleaner and simpler than last year's

I also decorated a little in our basement family room.  Finally got to put some pretty things in my glass jar lamp!

And of course there are owls sprinkled throughout the house : )  These beautiful flowers from my hubby for our anniversary have also helped bring some autumn into our house.  So pretty!

Still working on some little fall projects so I'll be back with those!
