I have been busy planning our annual Halloween Party coming up later this month...well NOW, actually I'm talking next weekend. Time, time...please, please slow down just a bit - You are killing me...literally. I have mailed invitations, have about 50 lists and am working through preparations and shopping for needed items. On paper, I'm planning to sail into the party day with almost everything completed. This is my goal every year and most times I do pretty well, however the last two years, I have failed horribly and am at the last minute making sure all is ready. Not this year. That is my goal, do it all and just like I plan it with no cutting corners and be done early.
This year, I have ordered two 10x30 party tents with sides. I plan to combine the two tents to make one large 20x30 tent where folks can get warm, or stay inside out of the chill. All the food and tables will be set up under the tents and I'll have the tent heated, if needed. This will give my guests the opportunity to move back and forth between the bonfire area and tent area, just in case it is cold or raining, this year. Keeping my fingers crossed that it will be a mild Autumn night with no wind or rain.
I'm going to leave you with a promise to come by and visit with you soon. I have gotten to some folks this week, but am still working on visiting all my regulars. I'm sorry, that I have been MIA. You mean a lot to me and I miss seeing what everyone is up to, especially at this, my favorite time of year.
Here are a few of my decorating pictures that I don't think I have shared yet. I can't do a post without photos.
