Happy pre-Halloween weekend! I find when Halloween falls during the week that the parties seem to never end because they last over two weekends. This year, Halloween is on a Saturday so I’d guess that Halloween parties would be limited to that weekend but I’ve been proven wrong. I’m partly wrong by my own doing because I’m currently trying to recharge after a party I helped throw last night. We called it a Spooktacular Soirée! To throw the party, we personalized this invitation to get our friends feeling festive. We served chili, cornbread, witchesbrew (aka this sparkling cocktail), and creepy cupcakes. Our dining room table looked like this except we styled it with even more pumpkins and no formal place setting… we kept it casual. It was haunted good time! Are you throwing or going to any Halloween parties this weekend!?
