My absolute favorite Halloween decoration.
So cute, just ready to trick or treat.
I'm not ready!
The kids are out of their minds excited for the Halloween party we are giving for them and their friends.
So far the list is up to 17 kids and about 8 adults and the list could still grow!
I think I am crazy.
You see, I have to tell you a secret.
I have never given a kids party before!
Oh, I have done parties, lots of them, even birthday parties for my kids.
BUT, I have never done one that was geared towards kids.
I am not in my element.
I am planning, oh, lots of planning.
In fact, if you ask my sisters, they will tell you I have turned into
THE PARTY NATZIE!
I am dictating all that needs to be done.
I am up to my neck in lists.
Lists for food.
Lists for things that need to be bought.
Lists for things that need to be made.
Lists for things that need to be cleaned....moved......chopped....cooked.....it never stops.
But, that's ok.
Because, I know when my guests arrive, I stop, put down that last minute thing I was doing and I have fun.
I am mostly ready in the living room.
I am just loving the white and black with pops of orange.
I love the eyeballs on the plates.
Each year I just get out the glue gun and re-glue them on.
Then pop them off at the end of the season.
Such pearly whites!
Doesn't it look like the bird is picking his nose.
The two pumpkin heads on the cabinet are new this year.
Little miss witch has to be up high.
The poor girl has been with me right from the start.
Both of her teeth have rotted off, and one of her legs has to be fixed each year.
But, I love her.
I actually managed to finish several pillows from shirts and sweaters that were last years undone project.
More little pumpkin heads hanging around.
There are five.
Mini skeletons, there is always something fun you can do with them.
Thanks for stopping by to visit my spooky living room.
So, I have to ask, do you do kids parties?
What is one tip you have learned that you could pass on to me.
