COUNTDOWN TO HALLOWEEN, WEEK 2

Pumpkins Galore

Grab your planner, review last week’s list.  If you missed Week 1, you can find it here
  
Have you filled your calendar with fun things to do?  Did you decide to host a monster bash?  We will be hosting our annual Halloween party on Sunday, October 29th. Have you finalized your guest list? Made or bought invites? Decided on holiday decorations? Do you still need ideas for a theme? Check out these fabulous party themes from Better Homes & Gardens.  

Getting ready:
Finalize your guest list.  With your made or store bought invitations at hand, begin addressing, stamping and stuffing those envelopes.  We will be mailing ours this week.  

Start Shopping
Finalize your menu, gather your recipes and create a master shopping list.  Begin picking up listed items whenever you visit the grocery store.  Need a list? Download our free printable here.

Think Decorations
If making your decorations, begin this week. This Bats and Leaf Ghosts project is perfect as it uses recycled and natural materials and is a great project for the kiddies.
 
Think Costumes
Decide on your costume.  Buy or make?

Don’t Forget the Table
Make a list for setting the table.  Don’t forget paper plates, cups, napkins, tablecloth, plastic ware.  Think about what your centerpiece will be – store bought, homemade?? You may want to consider one of these fabulous Halloween tablescapes.

The Housecleaning
This week, begin cleaning (and decorating) the foyer/entry areas.  This is the area your guests see first so you want it to be tidy.  Our entry area is forever filled with shoes, paper goods, keys, mail and laundry (the basement is off the entry area).  But when it’s cleaned, it’s beautiful.

The days are going so fast! and there’s still so much to do!!  Enjoy!


Hauntingly,
