Already thinking Halloween

by Shelly

Yes, I know…Halloween is still a bit away, but those that know me well know that…well I’m obsessed! My husband and I have had an annual party for the past three years. Every year is a little bit different. We change up the food, make a themed party drink for the night, decide on different entertainment, change around the guest list, and also mix of the decorations to change up the theme a bit.

Last year our little one was only three months old. The night we had the party was actually our first night away from her. She went over to my Mom’s place for the night to make things easier on us and so that we could let loose and REALLY have fun!

So these days, since having a toddler really makes party planning much more interesting, I am starting way ahead of the game. For the entertainment of the evening we are going back to our 2nd party and having karaoke. Karaoke was a HUGE hit the year we did it and I asked a few friends who have been to our party before if they would rather have a DJ. Nope, karaoke was a definite yes!

This year we are going to add a twist and ask that everyone come in completely homemade costumes. Nothing is to be a pre-packaged Halloween costume! We want originality and creativity! So we’re going to add prizes as well. Should be fun!

Another fun thing I was thinking of doing if it doesn’t cost too much, is hire a tarot reader. Hopefully I’ll find one that’s eccentric…that shouldn’t be hard!

Anyway, here are some fun pics of our previous parties…the good, the bad, the scary!
