Joe and I had a dinner party on Saturday.
I love planning dinner parties!
Half the FUN is in the planning. It REALLY is.
And when the door bell finally rings after weeks of planning, I love to WELCOME our friends into our home.
As I was planning our dinner, it occurred to me that when I was much younger, I didn’t always make a list when planning a dinner party. I recall one dinner in particular where I was a little overwhelmed because I didn't leave myself enough time to prepare. As I scanned the list, there was a note from Joe that said HAVE FUN. I will never forget that note, and it totally changed my attitude.
I'm going to compile my tips for a well organized dinner party so that you will feel ready and have FUN! That will be in my next post.
While I was planning our dinner, I looked on the internet for ways to decorate. Even though I didn't use any of the ideas I found, I feel they are worth sharing.
How about this poster backdrop, with feather wreaths from Apartment Therapy ?
This photo I found from Shelleybdecorandmore and loved the witch legs!
Lastly, who says you have to stick the traditional black, white and orange?
Wishing everyone a Happy Halloween!
You wouldn't believe
On All Hallow Eve
What lots of fun we can make,
With apples to bob,
And nuts on the hob,
And a ring-and-thimble cake.
