I have been so busy this past week! I finally finished decorating our back porch for the party on the 30th! Huzzah! ☺️🎉
VIDEO: The Final Product!
I worked on it through the weekend but stopped everything when I dropped my iPad face first on the tile out there, completely shattering it. 😔 I had to rush it over to Ubreakifix to have them replace the screen.
It was one of many bad luck things that have been happening lately. 😦
Fortunately! I feel better, iPad is safe here in my arms, and I’ve finished all the major tasks of this haunting season! 😀🎉💜
Today I went ahead and made up the party favor bags for the party and Halloween! ☺️💜 it’s honestly my favorite part of all this because it’s usually the last major thing I do, and it’s somewhat leisurely for me. 💜🎃💜
I also filled the candy bags for our little trick or treaters who will be arriving soon enough! 😆🎃💜👻
I started with a ton of candy…
And filled these adorable vintage looking bags my dad bought for $.50 at Goodwill earlier this month! I swiped a few for myself☺️🎃
Eventually, I finished filling 37 of those and another 80 cute ziplock treat bags! 🎃🎉👻 it was a lot but it was fun! 💜💜 we’re expecting lots of visitors this year as Halloween falls on a Saturday. So much excite for that. 🎃💜
My final order of business is buying food and setting up the scavenger hunt. I had discussed doing a really elaborate hunt, but I really don’t know if I’ll have the time to do too much. 😔 I might still make it big but not nearly as elaborate to save myself the stress.
I will definitely let you all know as those details develop. ☺️🎃💜
In other news, I may have some left over party favors and of course, I want to give them away! 😆
Send me your best Halloween photo! It can be of you in your costume or doing some Sweet Spooks of your own, your decorations, weather, etc. anything that defines Halloween for you. 💜🎃💜 I’ll pick two winners to get one of my surprise party favor bags! Also, I’ll feature everyone’s photos in a special blog post here at Vespertine House! ☺️🎃 This contest will end on November 2nd, giving you all enough time to pick your best photo as we bid farewell to the greatest month of the year. 💜🎃💜 Email your entry along with a few words about your photo, your name, and blog link to Sarah at rocksmanagement dot com!
So, tell me how are you enjoying October so far?! Done anything special like pumpkin picking or parties as of late? Tell me your plans. I love hearing from you guys! 💜
