I don't think it occured to me until this morning that tomorrow is the first day of October! I'm usually fairly organized and already have some ideas for Halloween, but work has been crazy lately - and with the party, I haven't really had time to plan.
After the success of my son's party, my husband is trying to convince me to throw a kids' Halloween party...so that adds more pressure.
It's kind of funny/sweet really, because my husband said he had the worst birthday parties growing up so he was completely against them when we had our son. But after seeing that I can, in fact, entertain fairly well, he wants me to throw more of them!
I don't think men realize the amount of work involved in these things...but then again, I know I overdo things so I'm sure I make it much more work than it needs to be...but hey! That's part of the fun of it! I enjoy the challenge of pulling a theme together and all of the little details. But the fun can lose a little of its charm when I'm up until 2AM tying ribbons on favors and handpainting signs on my lunch break!
But I do have a ton of cute Halloween ideas...and the playhouse would make a great backdrop for a (cute, not scary) kids Halloween party.
In the meantime, I've got to get cracking and come up with some new pumpkin carving & costume ideas .
Any one have any creative ideas?!?
