Halloween 2018

Happy Halloween!  I love dressing up for Halloween, but it is not Vu’s favorite thing.  However, he does like dressing up as Star Wars characters, so when we do dress up we have obviously done that quite a bit.  As in almost every time.  We sort of do a every other year thing, but we don’t dress up every year so… you know.  And if we don’t plan anything then we have enough regular Star Wars clothing that we end up doing that.  At least he is willing to do a different character or at least a different costume every year.  This year we were Han Solo and Princess Leia, but the Han and Leia from “The Empire Strikes Back” where they are on the snow planet Hoth… it is a bit obscure for non Star Wars fans.  I thought a lot of people wouldn’t know who we were, but as it turns out everyone we know could at least recognize us as Han and Leia, even if they didn’t know which scene specifically it was.

Witches Girls Night Party

I have been wanting to host a girls night witch party for years, and I finally got around to doing it last Saturday. In my opinion it was the perfect day for it, super rainy and windy and stormy all day! I loved it! I had a lot of plans that I didn’t get around to because for some reason after I got back from Hawaii and finished all the Halloween decorations, I just didn’t feel like doing any party prep. Fortunately though, I was planning on keeping up the Halloween decorations for the party, so there were a lot less party decorations I had planned. It was a really fun night!

The table was what I worked on the most, and I was really happy with the results. I pulled out the white branches and put them in a vase with some mini pumpkins and then had a couple crows and an owl perched in the branches.  Then I added some pumpkins, some black netting, a black lantern and the candelabra and table runner from the October décor.
