Here's Part 3 of our Halloween party inspirations. I can't get over how unique and fun all these tables are. (And while Katie H's Fall Pumpkin Celebration is not typical Halloween, I had to include it because it's just too gorgeous!)

We got such great responses from our first post on Halloween inspiration dessert tables, so here is Part 2 -- more amazing Halloween printables and party ideas from more amazingly talented women!

Stay tuned for Part 3 coming soon...
We've gotten some gorgeous Halloween tablescapes and photo shoots on our site. If you are planning a Halloween party, you must check these out. They run the gamut from traditional orange and black, to unexpected pink and purple. So whatever you're planning for Halloween, if you're looking for great printables and party ideas, these talented women have got you covered!

I just saw this on the Martha Stewart blog The Crafts Dept. How clever... a chalkboard bunting banner that not only looks cool, but is reusable. You just clean it off and write something else for your next party.
All you need to make it is some canvas, chalkboard paint, scissors, and a couple more instructions.
Seriously, how great would this be for Halloween!
What a wonderful summer it's been for us here at Catch My Party (although a little cold in Santa Monica). We hope you've had a great one, too.
We look forward to a festive fall filled with many great parties, new features on the site, and lots of posts highlighting all your creativity.
If you've thrown a Labor Day party, please add it to the site. We'd love to show it off!
Here are some of my favorite design elements from the July 4th parties we've seen on our site.
From Lindsey M's Little Firecracker's 4th of July Riverside Soiree
This party is all about the gorgeous sweets and the beautiful party printables. Lindsey and her partner design the printables themselves at Paper and Pigtails.
Some of my favorite things: the delicious confetti cupcakes, the hand-dipped marshmallows, and the lemonade bottles and straws. The whole party has such a festive spirit. It puts me in a good mood.
Daphne J's 4th of July Backyard Bash
What's great about this traditional BBQ is how it's taken to a whole new level by adding all these gorgeous printables. The printables are designed by Daphne and are available in her store Moo Moo's & Tutus.
Notice how the hamburgers, and even the straws, become something to celebrate when they're given a little decoration.
Molly E's Celebrate Our Independence!
This is a sumptuous party. The flowers, food, and decor make it seem rich and beautiful. I want to eat everything: the sliders, the corn, and those fabulous parfait and tart desserts.
And to finish it off, the favors are sweet and simple -- red, white, and blue candies in little jars. They look elegant and give the table punch. It's true, sometimes less is more.
Staci G's Old Fashion 4th
This party has "kid" written all over it. My favorite details: the red, white, and blue robot and the painted coffee filter decorations. What a great way for a mom to come up with arts and crafts projects for her kids that she can then use for a family celebration.
And how fun are the firecracker cookies with sprinkles and pop rocks? Nice touch.
Claudia S's Red, White, and Blue Ladybug Party
Great idea for this party -- a July 4th "slash"ladybug birthday party for a seven-year-old.
Again, custom decorations is where it's at this July 4th. Claudia and her partner designed these. You can find more at Tini Posh.
My favorite thing about this party is how both themes are incorporated. Check out the red, white, and blue cupcake toppers with ladies bugs, stars, and photos of the birthday girl on them. Combining themes does bring something new and exciting to your party. Definitely try it.
It's so much fun seeing all your great ideas. Thanks for sharing!
We've gotten two beautiful Canada Day parties on the site.
Candace M's Canada Day Party
And Genevieve B's Celebrating Canada Day... Philly Style Party
For those of you who don't know, Canada Day is celebrated on July 1, commemorating the day when Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the Province of Canada were combined into a federation on July 1, 1867.
I've already asked everyone to upload their July 4th parties so I could blog about them. Well to honor our Canadian friends, I also everyone to add their Canada Day parties, too.
I plan to do a big blog post about all these recent festivities.
I can't wait to see what everyone has done!
I'm planning to do a TRENDS post after the July 4th weekend to showcase all the great parties you've thrown to celebrate.
Please add your photos to our site. We're excited to see all the cool creative ideas you've come up with!
Until then... have a safe and Happy 4th!
My new favorite site for Mother's Day e-cards is Ojolie.
The cards are both beautiful and understated.
Here's what the artist/owner of the site, Frederikke Tu, says about her work:
"Our ecards are my work of passion, taking weeks of painstaking - but fun and satisfying - work and attention to detail to complete. First I hand paint many parts, and then the scanned images are combined with Flash animation to create a visually stunning story."
The ecards are not free, but for a 1 year subscription it will cost you only $10.
My favorites are definitely the animated origami cards, but so many of the them are absolutely gorgeous.
