Mod Podge Pumpkins
Last month one of the girls in our Book Club hosted a Pumpkin Painting Party at her house. I didn't really have an idea of how I would like to paint my pumpkins but had seen these pumpkins on Pinterest and thought I might try to create something similar to match my house. Of course, I did not listen to directions and bought scrapbook paper instead of using copy paper which indeed made the task much more difficult since the paper was so thick. I advise using tissue paper, napkins and or copy paper if you plan on trying this [...]
Monster Bash
My good friend Amanda threw a smashing Monster Bash this weekend and though I had to miss it (she lives 5 hours away) she graciously shared her photos with me to share with you! She is quite the hostess and paid special attention in her decor and food selection.

Pottery Barn Halloween
I know we're all well aware of Pottery Barn's wicked decorating talents. I mean, that's WHAT they do right? BUT this year's Halloween decor just blew me out of the water.

Halloween decor is well known for being either too spooky or too cheesy but I think Pottery Barn has put a classy spin on this year's decor. See for yourself... [...]
Happy Halloween!
I have been itching to host a Halloween party for years but it has just never been the right time. Last week (a week before Halloween) I finally decided to bite the bullet, live in the moment and just do it! I’m so glad I did so that now I can actually share my own Halloween party but I think next time my husband would appreciate it if I made up my mind more than a week before the party!I wanted the theme to work for a Halloween party but also for a Fall or Thanksgiving party since Halloween would [...]
Vintage Halloween Party by Sweets Indeed
This vintage Halloween dessert table by Sweets Indeed caught my eye immediately. The black lace is gorgeous yet creepy and who would've thought to use Monarch butterflies in a Halloween display? Simply genius! Also, using purple seems to be a common trend in this year's party designs and I love it! It really adds a pop to the usual black and orange. Be sure to visit the Sweets Indeed blog for more eye candy of this beautiful display!Photography by: The Pixel StudioVintage Prop Pieces by: Found Vintage RentalsCookies by: Sophie HogarthCake by: Rebecca LehmanDesign, styling, paper goods and other desserts [...]
