For the past six years my husband and I have hosted a Halloween party at our home. We (or, should I say... I) love this holiday. I love the theatrical nature of it. I love the multitude of themes. I just love it.
We've done several different themes over the years
. So, this year, when we were looking over our budget and schedules we were sad to have to tell everyone that we were not going to have a party. But, just like that, I found a full-time job after two years of searching and working from home part-time. Then, suddenly, the party was back on the table!
Without a ton of planning, we pulled off a fun Fairytale themed Halloween party over this past weekend. Our friends helped out a ton by bringing over food or beverages. We decorated the tables with items we had on had, found inexpensively at the grocery store, or made.
I was a terrible blogger (as I have been over this past month) and didn't take any photos of the party before the party actually happened! Thankfully, I have two wonderful friends in Bee (The Spicy Bee
) and Suzannah (Adventures in Dressmaking
) who brought along their cameras and snapped some shots.
This post is going to take a bit to load because it is going to basically be a photo dump of the event. I'm sure I'll come back to this party next year sharing all the little details. But, for today, I wanted to leave you with some fun Halloween pictures to help put you in the holiday spirit!
Jason and Suzannah-- Iron Man and Black Widow (Iron Man is totally a Modern Day Fairytale, right?)
Our little family as The Little Mermaid-- 15 years later.
Bee and her hubby as Little Red and her Lumberjack
I hope you all have a lovely and safe Halloween. Tonight the little guy is going trick or treating for the very first time!
